A forensic examination of the two sedans, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine the liability in the crash. 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 the vehicles, 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 cars as point of impact, their final resting positions, skid marks, and gouge marks.
Pending the result and findings of the investigation, the injured and held not liable for the collision may have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit, seeking a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
