Glen Levine, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “This was a serious accident that led to persons sustaining injuries. Scene investigations are critical to determining fault. Initially after an accident our office typically will hire an investigator to go to the scene. They can help collect evidence that will help with liability such as photograph skid marks to determine if excessive speed by one of the parties contributed to the severity of the accident. They can also canvass the area to see if any local business has security cameras that may have caught the accident within the angle of view of the security system. Finally always request that the vehicle be preserved – newer model vehicles had a data recording device that will tell speed and other telemetric information such as steering input and brake force at the time of accident.”
