There is a reason why police, and not just rescue crews, are need at the scene of fatal accidents. They are not just there to coordinate efforts of medical teams and cleanup crews, or to direct traffic. They are there to investigate, because the circumstances leading up to fatal crashes are not always clear in the aftermath.
Loved ones obviously want questions answered about the crashes that killed their lost family members, but there is more to an investigation than that. These studies of accident scenes can point to potential problems, which could lead to further incidents in the future.
This blog post is spurred by the mysterious car accident that took place in Llananno on Wednesday night. At 10 PM, it was dark, but there was no rain to blur the victim’s view of the road, or to cause the vehicle to lose traction. Yet, the impact of car hitting tree was enough to kill the woman on impact. She was pronounced dead on the scene.
If, though, it was discovered that there was a bad patch of road that might have led to the accident, if it is found that there may have been another car at the scene, which was driven off before crews arrived, or if it is determined that some component of the car malfunctioned, steps could be taken to serve justice or to correct problems before more victims wind up in the same situation.
A family left to contend with the damage done, and the life lost will want answers, both for the purpose of having closure, and also because that information can give them a better understanding of the circumstances. If someone else’s negligence caused the crash, they could seek damages to help cover the associated costs and that, at very least, would ease the financial burden while they mourned.
If you have a loved one who was killed thanks to the negligence of someone else, we can help. Learn how now.
