Commentary on Justin David Leven 18-wheeler Accident in Potter County

While this all may seem pretty open and shut, it's important people understand that commercial truck wrecks are rarely as simple as reports make them out to be. Folks may think this was just some truck driver being reckless. Well, not only is it worth looking into unusual factors the truck driver couldn't avoid, it's also worth considering if any mistakes they made were the inevitable result of factors surrounding their job.

A recent crash I looked into would be a good example of what I mean. In that case, a truck driver caused a serious crash because he had been driving for over 20 hours straight. That was obviously reckless, but why did he do something so irresponsible? Well, we kept digging, and it turned out that the company would set absolutely ludicrous deadlines, expecting drivers to cut corners and meet those unreasonable expectations. If they failed to do so, they risked their livelihoods. Some drivers could risk losing their jobs, but others had families to provide for, so they engaged in reckless behavior to appease their bosses, and people inevitably got hurt.

In a situation like that, some quick and easy case isn't going to be enough. People deserve to get help after a serious crash, but just about every one of the hundreds of people I've assisted through commercial vehicle accidents also wanted to be sure those responsible faced appropriate consequences for their actions. Are the proper steps being taken here to see that happens?
