Commentary on Austin Tyler Browning 18-wheeler Accident in Williamson County

With a crash like this, things seem pretty darn open-and-shut. I have rarely seen a crash with facts like these where evidence didn't show the truck driver did something wrong. However, that evidence was a lot more than just a simple crash report. The more room there is for trucking companies to shift the blame, the more opportunity there is for victims to be cheated out of the resolution they deserve. That's why it's crucial to ensure experienced investigators look into a crash like this. There's no telling when something a lot more complex than just a driver being on their phone will lead to a crash.

Case in point, I had folks come to me a while back about a truck driver who was texting and driving, leading to a serious wreck. As simple as that seemed, however, our investigations revealed a much more concerning chain of events.

That truck driver was texting his supervisor because he essentially was forced to under threat of losing his job. This ridiculous supervisor would constantly call and text drivers, and if they didn't respond right away, they'd get in trouble. One unreasonable boss put countless lives at risk as drivers did what they were told for fear of not being able to support their families. It was inevitable someone would get hurt.

I see cases like that a lot where less experienced attorneys would have simply taken the easiest path to a resolution. With proper investigations, however, victims and families help to ensure not only that they get the help they need but that also that they ensure those responsible for their hardships are held accountable for their actions. Are those steps being taken here?
