A forensic examination of both the motorcycle and the school bus, 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, 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, injured victims may be entitled to a personal injury claim or lawsuit against an at-fault party where they may seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, pain and suffering, and lost income due to being away from work due to injury.
