What My Blog is All About

As a Texas attorney practicing for 25 years, I have litigated all manner of wrongful death cases. I use this blog as a place to write opinion / editorial articles on a variety of topics that catch my interest and as a means of sharing news stories relevant to wrongful death accidents.

I think the overwhelming majority of people are unaware just how common these types of accidents are and I hope this blog raises awareness to a rather serious public safety concern. However, this blog is simply a means for me to share my opinions and I would recommend that anyone who is considering seeking legal counsel should contact their family attorney.

Just imagine how difficult it would be for a district attorney to prosecute a murderer if the murderer’s lawyer was one of the first people to arrive on the scene. But that’s exactly what trucking company lawyers do.

In this article we’re going to talk about how trucking companies exploit this fact to their advantage.
