Commentary on Truck Overturn Accident in Bexar County

It's one thing to read that a truck overturned, but it's another entirely to get to the bottom of how that happened. If the driver lost control, why? Was he speeding when he entered the curve? Was he awake, alert, and paying attention? Was the truck itself in good working order? Was its load reasonably sized and properly secured? What were weather, road, and traffic conditions like in the area?

I don't ask questions like those to complicate things or point fingers. It's just important to recognize all the possible variables and investigate them carefully--mostly to be sure all the crash's details are known, but also because every available fact is needed to get the victim the help they deserve. Even professional drivers who typically might receive workers' compensation benefits are best served by having the facts to back up what they say happened.

It usually takes more than police or news reports to get those facts, though, which is why I often suggest getting independent investigators to dig deeper than law enforcement typically does. With the evidence they find, victims and families whose lives are affected by these accidents are often able to get their lives back on track.
