Scene of the Accident

View from the Road


The fact of the matter is, commercial trucking companies have a bad reputation of trying to push liability off of themselves and onto other parties anytime there’s an accident. I’m not saying that’s definitely going to happen here, I’m only saying that the possibility exists. With that in mind, anyone involved in an accident like this is going to want a complete and thorough investigation done of the scene. Evidence is what’s going to prove a case either way, and victims can’t forget that witnesses leave the scene, surveillance footage is deleted, and skid marks on the road wash away. You could say that things begin working against victims almost as soon as the accident happens. That means that they’re going to want to get that investigation rolling as soon as possible. Because police investigations don’t always go in-depth enough, and the investigation conducted by the trucking company will undoubtedly portray them in a positive light, a private investigation may be the way to go.

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.
