The investigation into this crash needs to remain focused on determining who was at fault. Authorities will seek answers to questions that will delve into whether or not intoxication, excessive speed, or distracted driving played a role. Investigators must also understand if the bicyclist had the right-of-way and if they were impaired at the time of the collision. Depending on the results of the investigation, there may be a path toward a personal injury lawsuit available to the victim.
Many people will choose to file a claim for financial compensation because of the immense expenses that typically follow a serious injury.
