Scene of the Accident

Commentary:

If the news report about the offending vehicle’s tires being unsafe turns out to be true, then the driver of the offending car is probably going to be shouldering the fault, depending on what the investigation turns up. You have a duty of care not just to yourself, but everyone else on the road to keep a well-maintained, roadworthy vehicle, and if the owner allowed their tires to go bald, especially in such adverse wintery conditions, then they need to be held responsible, just as you would be if you skipped a brake job for a year and caused a fatal 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.
