Commentary on Tamara Varner Accident in New Braunfels

If reports have their facts straight it seems like the truck driver made a critical and costly error here--which even seems to be confirmed by several witnesses. Some may feel that the details laid out in reports mean the trucker and his employer would have little choice but to accept responsibility and help the victim get back on her feet.

That may seem reasonable on its face, but expecting accountability and actually getting it are different things. Frustrating as it often is, trucking companies rarely accept fault for these matters without doing everything they can to avoid it first. Some may not see how that'd be possible given how this wreck allegedly occurred, but I've warned a lot of people over the years not to underestimate how inventive defense attorneys can be.
