A forensic examination of the three involved vehicles, 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, 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, victims involved in any given auto accident and not found liable are entitled to personal injury lawsuit against the driver pending the results of the investigation. Injured victims may seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills and pain and suffering.
