A forensic examination of both the vehicle and the motorcycle, 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 motorist was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either vehicle, whether or not one of the drivers involved was distracted or simply did not yield to the right of way party. 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.
Once the investigation is over and it proves that a negligent party has disregarded the safety of others and has led to the death of another individual, the family of Mr. Rudy Moreno may have the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit seeking a recompense for the funeral costs, loss of future income and loss of love and companionship.
