Commentary on Tractor-trailer Accident on Savannah Highway in Charleston County
The reports didn't say exactly how this happened, but any accident involving two commercial vehicles is going to present unique challenges. Put simply, companies aren't out there trying to do right by people. Their priority is to avoid responsibility. While they're shouting back and forth, the victims in need of help get drowned out in all the noise. That's why it's often crucial to have experienced investigators looking into things as soon as possible.
There isn't much that speaks louder than clear evidence, so ensuring folks have as much of that as possible can be a vital step toward getting them the help they deserve. That's why I learned early on in my near 30 year career to ensure accident reconstructionists with the right skills and equipment have a chance to investigate any commercial vehicle wreck like this. It remains to be seen if this incident is being treated with the same prudence.
