Commentary on Amazon Truck Accident on Ottawa Beach Road

At a glance, these details seem pretty straight-forward. A truck reportedly makes a turn without signaling, and a motorcyclist suffers serious injuries as a result. Open-and-shut, right? Well, things are rarely that simple when it comes to commercial truck wrecks. A company as large as Amazon being involved is only going to make things more challenging.

Put simply, large companies have teams of professionals dedicated to avoiding as much responsibility as possible. One of the primary ways they do this is blaming the victim. This can be especially difficult to overcome when the victim is a motorcyclist, since a lot of people are more likely to believe a motorcyclist was being reckless whether or not they have evidence to support such a claim. Ensuring there is as much evidence as possible to tell the victim's side of the story convincingly can overcome this bias, but it requires experienced investigators who know what obstacles to expect in a crash like this one.

Understanding and anticipating these potential barriers can be the difference between a family being left out in the wind and a family getting the help they deserve. The article below helps shed light on these possible challenges.
