Commentary on Richard Erwin Tuttle 18-wheeler Accident in McCulloch County

Folks like to come at lawyers like me with accusations that I am anti-trucker just because I handle commercial vehicle wrecks. Yet when a tragic incident like this happens, I seem to be one of the only ones who says something about. The fact of the matter is folks are quick to just assume the driver did something wrong. As possible as that may be, there are all kinds of reasons an 18-wheeler can lose control which a driver may not have control over.

Mechanical issues, for example, deserve special attention in these situations. Frankly, authorities rarely have the tools or experience to look into that sort of thing. Many truck drivers end up blamed for something that a manufacturer or a repair shop did wrong. Could it be that happened here? It would take more thorough investigations to say for sure. In the meantime, folks can read about these possible factors further in the article below to learn how to anticipate these challenges.
