Commentary on Truck Accident on Belt Line Road in Grand Prairie
Unless police are overlooking something important, it's challenging to envision a scenario in which this truck driver did nothing wrong. I would always encourage thorough investigations to even consider unlikely possibilities, but even the likely explanation that a mistake led this crash can involve unique hurdles requiring more experienced professionals.
For instance, I handled a truck wreck not long ago in which it turned out a reckless truck driver was actually just a poorly trained one. He had almost no experience driving trucks, but his employer was so desperate for warm bodies behind the wheel they put him in a truck, rushed through all of the safety training in about an hour, and got him driving. Any halfway decent trucker can attest to how incredibly stupid that is. It's essentially a time bomb waiting to go off.
Situations like that where there are more serious mistakes than, say, a truck driver just looking at their phone, require a lot more evidence and more involved legal maneuvering. After all, getting help for people is just one priority, high as that priority may be. Just about every family I help out also wants to be sure the right people are being held fully accountable for their actions. It remains to be seen if those steps are being taken here.
