Commentary on Randy Lopez Baeza 18-wheeler Accident in Pyote

With a crash like this, it's important victims and families have allies who are experienced with commercial vehicle wrecks in particular. They can present unique challenges that a simple police report or someone with little experience isn't likely able to handle.

Let me give you an example of these potential challenges. I had this crash a while back which resulted from a truck that experience a mechanical issue. Sometimes, that's just an outright lie, but it turned out to be true in this particular case. But instead of just assuming that made the situation a simple accident, we kept digging. Doing so showed that the trucking company in that crash was extremely negligent.

Through court orders, we were able to gain access to the truck's maintenance records. The mechanical issue was the direct result of months of neglected repairs. That company decided they'd risk a crash rather than pay for the maintenance. That certainly didn't pay off very well for them. Additionally, their driver failed to react to the issue properly where a more experienced and prudent driver likely could have avoided the fatal collision even with the mechanical failure.

By digging all of that up, it made things absolutely clear in terms of who was responsible. Not only that, but understanding the exact mistakes leading to the crash made it possible to address them appropriately, ensuring the trucking company wasn't getting off with just a slap on the wrist.

At the end of the day, seeing accountability for a serious crash is just as much a priority as getting folks the help they need. It's best that folks ally themselves with professionals who can pursue both of those priorities.
