A forensic examination of both vehicles involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine the liability in the tragic crash. 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 the cars, and whether or not one of the drivers did not yield to the right of way motorist. 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 surviving family members of the deceased, as well as any other motorist injured in this incident, may be entitled to a wrongful death or personal injury claim pending the results of the investigation. Victims are entitled to a compensation for all the hospital bills, funeral costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and loss of love and companionship.
