Commentary on Timothy Hefner Motorcycle Accident in LaPorte County

I see in statements that witnesses reported seeing the victim behave recklessly. While I have no particular reason to doubt this, I always take such claims with a grain of salt. Quite frankly, people can be incredibly biased against motorcyclists. Sometimes, the evidence just doesn't align with what people think they saw.

Not that long ago, for example, a family came to me with reports blaming their loved one for being reckless. They were bothered because they knew their loved one was a responsible rider. Well, our independent investigations proved their suspicions right. In fact, it wasn't the witness in that case that got it wrong--it was the police. The witness told them the motorcyclist passed him, and the officer just assumed that meant the victim was speeding and weaving through traffic. Thanks to the evidence we gathered, the truth finally came to light.

Maybe nothing like that would happen here under closer scrutiny, but someone lost their life here. Shouldn't that be worth every effort to ensure his loved ones are getting the whole story?
