A forensic examination of the motorcycle involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine the cause of the accident. Authorities will thoroughly look into speed of the rider, whether or not alcohol or drugs played a role, whether or not there was a mechanical issue with the bike and whether or not the operator at the time was distracted or reckless at some point. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the motorcycle such as point of impact, their final resting positions, skid marks, and gouge marks.
A victim of a traffic collision has the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent individual, seeking a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
