Five teens were on their way to a vacation home when they hit a Tractor Trailer. Everyone in the car died. The tragedy in western New York’s Finger Lakes region happened just five days after the teens graduated from Fairport High School.

The police have indicated the cause of the collision is under investigation. An investigation to determine who is at fault takes place anytime there is a motor vehicle collision and someone is seriously injured or killed.

A person who sustains serious injuries from an SUV, truck, car, or motorcycle accident because someone else was at fault may have grounds to file a personal injury claim. If someone was killed in a traffic accident because another person was negligent, the victim’s family members may have grounds to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

A good personal injury lawyer can determine who was at fault for causing the accident. He or she also has the knowledge, tools, and experience to figure out if a defect in the vehicle caused the accident and a manufacturer or distributor is to blame. Common grounds for a motor vehicle product liability claim include defective tires, defective airbag, defective seat belts, and defective breaks.

Recovering from an accident is stressful enough without having to worry about medical or recovery costs.
