Commentary on Joshua James Palmer 18-wheeler Accident in Temple

Crashes like this are usually seen as open-and-shut, and that's because they're usually the result of something obvious, such as speeding, following too closely, or distracted driving. But not only is it important to consider less likely possible factors, it's also important to consider those simple explanations may happen for not-so-simple reasons.

For example, I had a case not long ago where a truck driver crashed while texting and driving. Pretty straight-forward, right? Well, it turned out that the driver was responding to his supervisor. This supervisor, in his infinite wisdom, essentially threatened drivers with their jobs if they didn't respond to him immediately at all hours of the day. This inevitably led to drivers texting when they should just because their boss would scream at them if they didn't.

What lazy attorney may have seen as some slam dunk case turned out to involve a whole company that needed to face significant consequences to they'd clean up their act before more people got hurt. Maybe nothing so challenging happened here, but that's not the sort of thing I would leave to chance.
