A forensic examination of the all the vehicles involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine which party ultimately caused the 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 cars, 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 vehicles such as point of impact, their final resting positions, skid marks, and gouge marks.
Pending the results and findings of the investigation for this accident, the injured and not held responsible for causing the collision will possess the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party.
The claim will include the compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost income, property damage and pain and suffering.
