Scene of the Accident


Accidents just like this one happen every day, all over the country. Accidents in which who’s at fault seems to be pretty obvious. However, many people don’t know that despite liability being clearly established in an accident, an at-fault party has no legal obligation to “make things right” with the person they’ve run into. People tend to think that if they’re ever hit in an accident, they’re owed a certain amount of compensation. This isn’t true. An insurance carrier has a legal obligation to defend their client. Remember, an insurance carrier’s best interests rarely line up with the best interests of a victim. They’re only going to be persuaded to help a victim if they think that being taken to court is going to be more expensive for them. That’s not to say that courts and juries have to get involved anytime an accidents occurs, but it’s helpful to remember that an insurance carrier isn’t there to represent your interests.

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.
