Unfortunately, people often see accidents like this and assume — before knowing all the facts — that it happened because of something the driver did. While it’s true that drivers often cause their own accidents, they’re not the only reason they’re caused. I’ve seen several single-vehicle wrecks in my time that have happened through no fault of the driver, or anyone else in the car. Often times, automobile parts are defective and recalled. We hear so much about them that we tend to ignore the information. That turns out to be a mistake, because that information can literally save lives. If this accident happened because of a defect in the car itself, then liability for the crash could fall on the manufacturer.

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.
