A forensic examination of the vehicles involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will be made to help investigators determine the liability in the accident. Other potential factors will be looked into as well including whether or not a driver was under the influence at the time of the accident, whether or not a motorist was distracted, operating the vehicle recklessly, or traveling over the speed limit prior to impact. Each of these factors plus several others will be assessed allowing police officials to draw up a final conclusion.
Pending results of the investigation, the victim may have the right to a personal injury claim. Victims in similar cases are potentially entitled to seek compensation for damages including hospital bills, future medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
