When a motor vehicle accident occurs in the state of Maryland, a special investigation team dedicated to accident reconstruction may be called upon to determine the details and cause of the crash. Accident investigators can search for witnesses, gather clues from the scene, and use evidence from traffic or surveillance cameras to try to determine what happened. An accident reconstruction team is currently looking into a car accident that resulted in the death of a pedestrian.
Investigators initially report that a man was attempting to cross the road when he was struck by a sedan. Police were able to identify the vehicle and the driver. The driver did not suffer any injuries as a result of the crash.
The victim was not nearly as fortunate. He suffered serious injuries that resulted in death. Investigators are working hard to reconstruct the facts of the accident, and if the driver is determined to be at fault, the victim’s family may want to take legal recourse.
When a victim suffers serious injury or death as the result of a car accident, there is no guarantee that the person who caused the crash will be charged with a crime. Even if an investigation determines that there is not enough evidence to support criminal charges, a victim or representative of a victim’s estate can seek justice against the driver at fault in civil court. An experienced attorney can be an asset to a Maryland party that is ready to seek justice and compensation in a court of law.
