Commentary on Big Rig Accident on Road 56 in Tulare County
There really isn't much information about what happened here. Maybe authorities are hard at work sorting through the details, but there can be inherent challenges to consider for the victims and families in need of answers. One that I rarely see people discuss is the fact trucking companies are already hard at work working on their defense. That's certainly the obvious thing anyone should do, but when you've seen situations like I have where trucking companies altered evidence, hid details, lied, tricked grieving families into signing their rights away, and all kinds of other tactics, you'd know just how important it is that professionals look into accidents like this sooner rather than later.
