Commentary on Sherry Ann Murphy Car Accident in Tyler

Folks tend to see reports like this and think everything is open and shut. They certainly can be, but it's not prudent to treat a crash like that. Even authorities can be quick to move on and fail to realize there are extenuating circumstances to consider.

For example, something authorities don't often look into is a vehicle's safety features. Many times over the years, more thorough independent investigations have revealed things like faulty brakes, airbags, seatbelts, poor vehicle design, tire defects, or other factors which made a crash far more severe than it should have been. Are those common factors? Not at all, but ensuring there are proper investigations can be a significant step toward getting folks the help they need. Were those steps ever taken here?
