A forensic examination of the all vehicles involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine the liability in the deadly wreck. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each party was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs played a role, whether or not motorist was recklessly driving and caused the crash, and whether or not one of the drivers involved was distracted or did not yield to the right of way individual. 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.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, the surviving family of the deceased may be granted the right to pursue a wrongful death claim pending the results of the investigation. Family members of wrongful death victims have the right to seek a recompense for the funeral costs, lost future income, and loss of love and companionship.
