Commentary on Donald Brown Accident in Plano

After a single-vehicle crash like this I'm often concerned that people will be much too quick to blame the victim. Even law enforcement sometimes falls victim to that temptation, blaming a crash on driver error much as they said speeding was the key problem in the Plano wreck.

I'm not saying that's impossible as a contributing factor--goodness knows speeding is one of the most common causes of crashes--but nothing should be taken for granted after an accident. Every possible contributing factor should be considered, even the less-likely ones. After all, how many people blamed the victims of the infamous GM ignition switch defect before everyone learned that a poorly-manufactured part in millions of vehicles was responsible for those wrecks?

Investigating a single-vehicle wreck is a lot more complex than most people realize. Doing it right and getting real answers requires a lot of time and experience, and sometimes specialized equipment that law enforcement doesn't always have. It's crucial to make sure nothing slips through the cracks. To learn more about what that might entail, click the image below.
