Commentary on David Earl Bigham Truck Accident in Bastrop County

I often address crashes like this one simply because folks are too quick to assume they're open-and-shut. Police say a truck failed to yield. What more is there to know? Well, hundreds of commercial vehicle wreck cases taught me that crashes are rarely ever straight-forward. There could be other factors at play that police don't typically investigate. Those details can be instrumental in making sure the victims and families involved get the help they deserve.

I'll give the perfect example. Not long ago, a case came to us in which a truck driver was texting and driving, causing a serious wreck. Clear cut case, right? Well, as is our procedure, we continued investigating until we knew more. That's how it came to light that the driver was texting his supervisor. But why does that matter?

Essentially, this ridiculous supervisor constantly bugged drivers throughout the day. If they didn't respond immediately, he'd get mad, essentially threatening drivers with their jobs because he couldn't wait five minutes for them to get to a safe stopping point. It was inevitable that drivers seeking to appease this moron would get themselves or someone else hurt.

When the facts seem obvious, it may be easy enough for even an inexperienced attorney to "win." But knowing the full story not only provides more opportunity to get victims and families the help they need, it also provides something just about every one of my clients wanted: accountability. Knowing those responsible for their hardships are facing appropriate consequences can be just as significant as getting help with the damages caused by the accident. That's why more thorough independent investigations are often necessary in truck wrecks, and I don't see why this would be an exception.
