After a fatal car crash, investigators may be able to use crash reconstruction to piece together information about how the incident occurred and which party, if any, should be held accountable for it. If the investigation indicates that this was in fact the case, the driver may be required to provide compensation for any pain and suffering or financial losses the victim’s family have endured as a consequence of his or her actions.
