A forensic examination of the vehicle, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine the cause of the crash. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast the driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs played a role, whether or not there was any mechanical issue with the car, and whether or not the driver was distracted or reckless at the time. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicle as point of impact, its final resting position, skid marks, and gouge marks.
Pending the result and findings of the investigation, the injured and held not liable for the collision may have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit, seeking a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
