Commentary on Arnoldo Ortiz Quinones Truck Accident in Lockhart
As straight-forward as a situation like this seems, folks always need to have the tools, allies, and evidence to ensure those responsible for their injuries can't make excuses. I've seen less experienced attorneys lose cases because they assumed everything was open-and-shut only for some flimsy defense to find footing and sink the whole thing. That's why trucking companies try all kinds of things banking on that chance, however slim, that they dodge a bullet.
Let me give an example. We confronted a trucking company not long ago after a serious crash. They blamed an ambulance's lights for blinding their driver--their driver who was high at the time, by the way. We went to every ambulance company until we found one that had a unit in the area of the crash, and logs clearly showed it was almost a mile away from the crash site. It was only after getting that pitiful excuse for a defense thrown out by a judge that the company finally cooperated.
I wish I could say that was unusual, but insurance and trucking companies always prioritize avoiding as much blame as possible. Having the tools to ensure they're held fully responsible means getting those tools as soon as possible. Were those steps ever taken here?
