Commentary on Robert Russell Accident in Euless

Considering how many collisions with 18-wheelers go, it's a relief to see only minor injuries mentioned in reports. Despite that, it's important to take the crash seriously and investigate it carefully. Early reports don't always fully grasp the consequences of a wreck, and there can be difficulties afterward that victims and families should be prepared for.

For example, I handled a situation not long ago where a man was rear-ended by a commercial vehicle and suffered what first seemed like simple back pain. Doctors told him to use a heating pad and take ibuprofen, then sent him on his way.

A few days later the pain was almost paralyzing; he could barely get out of bed, let alone resume his life. Further tests showed the crash actually ruptured a disk in his spine--a serious injury that required surgery, months of recovery, and a lengthy back-and-forth with the insurance company that did everything in their power to avoid responsibility. We got him the help he needed, but it was a long fight that I wouldn't wish on anyone.

It's important that folks understand they could face challenges like that and make sure they have the tools needed to overcome them. At worst they'll end up overprepared for nothing, which is still far better than the opposite.
