Commentary on Fatal Truck Accident on Highway 214 in Gaines County

If things happen the way these reports say, this is about as egregious as it gets. How someone fails to see a car before merging onto a straight, sunlit highway is just unthinkable. No reasonably prudent truck driver would make such a terrible mistake. So what was different about this?

Folks may not think answering that question is all that difficult. It's pretty obvious who's at fault, right? I've handled hundreds of commercial vehicle wrecks over the years. Put simply, the moment victims and families take the facts for granted is the moment the trucking company wins.

These companies have teams of professionals dedicated to minimizing their responsibility. From blame-shifting to stonewalling to underhanded tactics designed to get families to sign away their rights, it's important folks recognize these tactics and have the allies and tools to overcome them. Doing so could be crucial in getting answers for a family no doubt going through unimaginable grief right now.
