Potential Causes of Fatal Accidents

When an individual dies in an accident‚ it must be determined who was responsible‚ how it could have been prevented‚ and if negligence was a factor. For example‚ when someone is killed in a San Diego pedestrian accident‚ investigators must review if the driver failed to yield the right-of-way. When a bicyclist is killed‚ witnesses may be needed to prove that the at-fault driver changed lanes or turned without first looking for the bicyclist. When someone is killed on the job‚ the worksite should be evaluated to determine if hazardous conditions or defective equipment caused or contributed to the deadly incident.
