Commentary on Juan Pablo Sifuentes Motorcycle Accident in El Paso
The police seem to have a pretty clear idea of what happened here, but it's always important to make sure investigations are thorough so there is clear evidence to back up the reports. Quite frankly, any crash involving a motorcycle can present unique challenges due to the fact that a lot of people are quick to blame motorcyclists.
Insurance companies know this all too well. They try to use this bias to their advantage. Even if someone failed to yield to the rider, if they can put that idea in people's heads that the motorcyclist was speeding recklessly or weaving through traffic, they can shift some of that blame onto the victim. As strong as this bias can be, few things are stronger than the facts. That's why ensuring victims and their loved ones know the whole story is so crucial in these situations. Are professionals handling this crash to make sure nothing important slips through the cracks?
