A forensic examination of the motorcycle and the truck, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine which party ultimately caused the incident. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs played a role, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either the bike or 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 motorcycle or the truck such as point of impact, their final resting positions, skid marks, and gouge marks.
Pending the results and findings of the investigation, the injured and held not liable for the crash may have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent individual. A victim of a traffic collision is entitled to a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
