Unfortunately, many accidents are caused by drivers who just aren’t paying attention to the road ahead of them, and as such are easily avoided. When someone is injured, as is the case in this accident, they face possible charges from the police, as well as a civil claim from the person they injured. While someone may be found at-fault by the police, that doesn’t obligate them to compensate the person they’ve hurt in any way. Unfortunately, it’s often the case that victims are left to pursue that themselves.

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.
