Commentary on Motorcycle, Truck Accident on Highway 6 in Falls County

As open-and-shut as this may seem to readers, any crash involving a motorcycle is sure to present some unique challenges. This is due simply to the fact that a lot of people are quick to blame motorcyclists, and trucking companies know this. That's why it's important for victims and families to have crystal clear evidence to show exactly what led to the crash and who's responsible.

China Spring Man Injured in Truck Accident on Highway 6 in Falls County, TX

A while back, for example, a family came to me with reports their loved one was being reckless, speeding and weaving through traffic before hitting a semi-truck. When we dug into the actual evidence, though, it was clear police were wrong. It was the truck cutting off the motorcyclist that caused the crash, and there was no evidence showing the motorcyclist being reckless. In fact, we found a witness that said just the opposite. The investigating officer was simply inexperienced and spent far too little time with the investigations, leading to them assuming the motorcyclist was being reckless when nothing was farther from the truth.

I'm not saying anything like that happened here, but it's a common negative bias folks should be aware of. As powerful as those misconceptions can be, they rarely persist in the face of clear facts. That's why victims and families should take the steps to ensure they have those facts as soon as possible.
