A forensic examination of both the motorcycle and the pickup truck, 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, the family of Mr. Steven Patterson may be entitled to file a wrongful death lawsuit pending on the investigation and who is ultimately found liable. A family who loses a loved one may seek recompense for damages including funeral costs, lost future income, and loss of love and companionship.
