Commentary on Rodney and Donna Noe Accident in Wagoner County
One of the biggest hurdles I encounter in this line of work is people who decide on the spot what happened in a crash just because they can think of a plausible explanation; unfortunately, one of the first things to come to mind is usually a driver mistake like speeding or distraction. While further investigation might still confirm something like that happened, it's important not to take anything for granted and consider the many other possible explanations.
If there's more to the story it's best to confirm that with evidence, but police don't always dig deep enough to find the whole truth. That's why it's best for people to know what other issues might be involved, and then to work with experienced professionals to check for them. Click below to learn more.
