A forensic examination of the Toyota Camry and the big rig 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 the speed of each driver, whether or not alcohol or drugs played a role, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with the car and the truck, and whether or not one of the drivers involved was distracted or simply did not yield to the right of way motorist. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicle and the tractor-trailer, such as point of impact, their final resting positions, skid marks, and gouge marks.
Pending the results and findings of the investigation for this crash, the family members of the child as well as those injured and not held responsible for causing the collision will possess the right to pursue a wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party.
The claim will include the compensation for all the funeral costs, hospital bills, future medical needs, lost income, and pain and suffering.
