A forensic examination of both 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 how fast each driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, and whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either vehicle. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicles such as point of impact, final resting positions of each vehicle, skid marks, and gouge marks.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, those who suffered injuries in any given accident will have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit if they are ultimately not found responsible. Injured accident victims may seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, lost future income due to injury, and pain and suffering.
