Commentary on Bryan Weir Car Accident in Callisburg
With a situation like this, it may be too easy for folks to jump to conclusions--even the authorities. That's because single vehicle wrecks are often a sign the driver did something wrong. But understanding the potentially complex nature of single-vehicle wrecks is important for getting the victims the help they need.
First of all, even if something relatively common happened, there could be complex legal avenues resulting from those factors. For example, if evidence shows the driver was drunk, then it's possible there's a local business that contributed to their injuries. Dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. If authorities overlook that possibility, it can cause serious issues.
Alternatively, what if something highly unusual contributed to the crash? Mechanical defects, tire issues, roadway hazards, other drivers that left the scene, poor signage or lighting--these are all things which do not usually cause wrecks but absolutely have in the past. Without experienced investigators who understand this, important details may slip through the cracks.
The question remains, then: are the right people looking into this crash to ensure the victim gets clear answers?
