Commentary on Missouri City Man Truck Accident on I-30 in Hopkins County

It's not clear what exactly went wrong here, but folks tend to assume the truck driver did something wrong. That's entirely possible, but it would be irresponsible to ignore other possibilities, however unlikely they may seem.

There may have been mechanical issues, a tire blowout, a medical emergency, road hazards, or other factors beyond the driver's control. It's even possible their mistakes can involve more complex issues, such as a crash I handled where a truck driver fell asleep at the wheel because his employer would threaten drivers with their jobs if they failed to meet ludicrous deadlines which all but demanded they drive recklessly.

Folks often see attorneys like me as anti-trucker, but the reality is anyone with as much experience as I have in this field knows how often that people, including authorities, overlook crashes like this. Put simply, more thorough investigations could reveal crucial details the victim's loved ones need to here. It's important steps are taken to get those answers and ensure nothing slips through the cracks.
