A forensic examination of all the motorcycles and the car involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine which party ultimately caused the deadly accident. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each party was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with the motorcycles and the vehicle, and whether or not one of the drivers involved was distracted or did not yield to the right of way motorist. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the bikes and the car such as point of impact, their final resting positions, skid marks, and gouge marks.
Victims of a traffic collision have the right to pursue a wrongful death and personal injury lawsuit against the negligent individual, seeking compensation for all the hospital bills, funeral costs, lost wages, pain and suffering and loss of love and companionship.
