Commentary on Mark Idrogo Jr. Truck Accident in Jefferson County

With a situation like this, folks tend to see someone rear end traffic, figure they're automatically to blame, then simply move on. In reality, it takes thorough investigations to look into factors like this. There's no telling what unique challenges victims and families may need to overcome.

For example, I handled a situation a while back where a truck driver was texting and driving, leading to a crash. Pretty open-and-shut, right? Well, our continued investigations showed the driver had been responding to his supervisor. But why did this change things?

Essentially, that supervisor would constantly call and text drivers throughout the day. When they didn't respond immediately, they'd get in trouble. Apparently excuses like, "I was driving," simply wouldn't fly, ultimately coercing drivers into being reckless under the threat of losing their jobs.

With a situation like that, it's not some A to B dash to a resolution. That can require far more extensive investigations to preserve all that evidence and to ensure all parties--including the negligent company--are held responsible. Otherwise, they could simply continue putting the public in danger. Getting people the help they need is always a priority, but that goes hand in hand with ensuring they have all the facts. Are those steps being taken here?
