As straight-forward as these reports may seem, it's important folks understand that getting the help they need almost always involves overcoming numerous obstacles. Most commonly, trucking companies and insurance companies are going to take steps to shift as much blame onto others as possible--usually onto the victim.

For example, I handled a situation where a truck hit the back of a turning vehicle, but they claimed the victim slammed on their brakes without using their blinker. Proving otherwise took us finding a nearby business with security footage that clearly showed the victim come to a controlled stop with their blinker on. That's why thorough independent investigations are so important after a serious truck wreck. Getting people the help they need means having the evidence to anticipate and overcome whatever roadblocks the other guys try to put up.
