Commentary on Hayden Thomas Bishop 18-wheeler Accident in Taylor County

If the reports here are accurate, then it seems pretty darn clear who's to blame. Why exactly they failed to see the victim before turning, though, is important to determine. No matter how straight-forward the facts seem, trucking companies have one priority--avoid responsibility. They have all kinds of tactics for doing just that, and if folks take the facts for granted, they may quickly find themselves left in the wind while the trucking company rides off into the sunset.

A crucial step toward overcoming these challenges is simply knowing what to expect. Understanding potential tactics and the allies, tools, and evidence it takes to overcome them can make all the difference in getting people the help they deserve. I see absolutely no reason why this crash would be an exception to that.
