Commentary on Peter Alan Zollers Tractor-Trailer Accident in Pasadena

This all seems pretty straight-forward, but something I stress time and time again on this blog is the importance of having extensive to support one's side of the story. Any gaps in the story is room for a company to muddy the waters and minimize their responsibility as much as they can. Taking steps to anticipate those strategies is why professionals are often necessary for getting people the help they need.

For example, I had a situation not long ago in which a tractor-trailer cutting off traffic while turning across the highway led to a deadly wreck. The company, however, claimed that the victim had been speeding and not wearing a seatbelt. We knew that was bogus, but it was our burden to show otherwise.

A few key pieces of evidence dug up in our investigations proved crucial to that end. One was the victim's frozen speedometer which clearly showed he couldn't have been speeding at the time. Additionally, numerous emergency responders testified they actually had to cut through the victim's seatbelt to get him out of the wreckage. To top things off, our investigations showed that the trailer's reflective tape was so dirty that it practically would have been invisible at the time of the wreck.

Only after a team of professionals with years of truck wreck experienced looked into things did the trucking company eventually decide to cooperate. They can shift the blame all they want, but at the end of the day, the facts speak volumes. That's why folks should take steps as soon as possible to get the facts and build up their side of the story. Were those steps taken here?
