Commentary on Brenda Rudel Ayres Truck Accident in Conroe
Folks may look at this as pretty open-and-shut, but I try to caution people that there is almost never a simple or straight-forward truck wreck. There are barriers that constantly stand between victims and the help they need, and having the tools to anticipate and overcome those barriers is crucial.
For example, the victim here appears to be in their 70s. When it comes to older victims, I often have to deal with companies saying their injuries were due to their age and preexisting injuries rather than the crash.
This can be countered with experienced medical professionals utilizing high tech imaging equipment to differentiate between "old" injuries and "new" ones. But if an inexperienced attorney, for example, thinks things are open-and-shut, they may not bother taking these precautions, giving the insurance company too much room to muddy the waters.
I can't say what did or didn't happen here, but I can say from experience that taking things as seriously as possible is likely the prudent way to ensure those involved get the help they need.
