While this fact pattern has all the hallmarks of a run-of-the-mill accident, one fact sticks out like a sore thumb in the news I’ve come across. The fact that the victim’s car caught fire after the crash makes me wonder the origin of the fire. The thing you may not know, is that fire’s path can be traced to a source, and considering that modern vehicles are engineered with crash survivability at the forefront of their design, I’m wondering if a fault in the vehicle made this accident worse than it would have been had the vehicle’s design was up to par. If so, the car manufacturer could bear some portion of the liability in the accident.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
