Commentary on Deepsikha Mohapatra Accident in Frisco

If preliminary reports have their facts straight it seems a lot like the truck driver made a poorly-timed U-turn and triggered this unfortunate wreck. It's hard to see any way the incident wouldn't be the trucker's doing, which some may feel means he and his employer would have little choice but to accept responsibility and try to make amends to the injured victim.

That may seem reasonable on paper, but I caution against thinking any accident--especially one with a commercial truck--will be as straightforward as reports might imply. Frustrating as it is, trucking companies rarely accept fault without doing everything they can to avoid it first. Most commonly they point fingers anywhere and everywhere but at their drivers. In Frisco, for instance, they might say the victim was speeding or took "faulty evasive maneuvers" and was therefore more responsible for her injuries than the trucker was.

Some may think I'm being unfair or cynical, but this comes from decades of working on commercial wrecks. In all that time, I can say with no exaggeration that exactly one company simply admitted fault and tried to make things right. All the others dug in their heels and fought every step of the way against doing the right thing, so victims must understand what to expect and know how to deal with it. Click below to read more.
