Commentary on Beverly McCracken Accident in Conroe

People may think crashes like these are pretty straightforward: Reports say the truck driver ran a light, someone was hurt because he broke the rules, so now he and his employer should take responsibility and make what amends they can. However, things are rarely so straightforward.

Frustrating as it is, trucking companies rarely accept fault or liability without doing everything they can to avoid it first. That could mean pointing fingers anywhere and everywhere but at their driver; in Conroe that might mean blaming road conditions, sun glare keeping the driver from seeing the red light, or if they're feeling punchy blaming the victims for speeding or not wearing seat belts. That may sound cold-blooded but I've seen it happen countless times over the years.

It may seem like the company wouldn't have much of a leg to stand on given what police say happened, but they can and will dispute police reports unless clear and indisputable evidence can tell the whole story.
