Commentary on Nikki Nicole Giddings Semi-Truck Accident in Dallas

To put this rather bluntly, a semi-truck making a u-turn is almost always dangerous. Even if it's a legal maneuver, it creates a significant hazard. That's why most every responsible truck driver I know does everything in their power to avoid these maneuvers or otherwise take extra precautions to ensure they can do so safely. Maybe there are extenuating circumstances to consider here. I don't just want to blame someone without knowing all of the facts. But making sure those facts are clear and that there is as little room for muddying the waters as possible is a complex process victims and families need to be prepared for.

Let me give an example of how complex a situation like this can get. A while back, I handled a crash in which a car hit a semi-truck that turned across their path. Afterward, the trucking company denied responsibility, saying the victim didn't have their headlights on. That certainly struck the family as odd behavior, which is why we began working immediately to look into those claims. Something very surprising came to light in those investigations. The victim's car at the wreck yard simply had no headlights; they were just gone. Why? That's where things go from suspicious to outright infuriating.

Through our investigations, we found out that an insurance company representative actually came to the yard and got access to the victim's vehicles. With a set of tools, they literally stole the victim's headlights, all to support their ridiculous blame-shifting defense. Thanks to us bringing that to light, that company was caught in their lie, and it wasn't long before they decided cooperation was the better avenue.

Now, that's a particularly egregious example, but companies often go to various lengths to avoid blame. Making sure the evidence is clear helps to keep the story out of their hands so that the facts can speak for themselves. Whatever happened here, were steps taken to ensure the victims and families involved can tell their side of the story and get the help they deserve? 4
