Commentary on Kevon Smith Car Accident in Plano
When folks see a car accident like this, they tend to assume everything is open-and-shut. It's just a straight-forward collision, right? That could be true, but sometimes there are more complex issues to consider.
What if mechanical defects led to the crash? What if faulty safety devices caused more serious injuries? What if there was missing signage or problems with a traffic signal? These aren't the kinds of things authorities tend to look into, which is why I always rely on more thorough independent investigations. It would do folks good to learn about these situations and what can be done to ensure those involved get as much help as possible.
