Commentary on Taylor Morales Accident in Victoria

If the trucker really ran the light as reports suggest, people may believe he and his employer would have little choice but to accept fault and make what amends they could for the damage he did. However, I caution against thinking any accident--especially one with a commercial truck--is truly as straightforward as it may seem. Frustrating as it is, trucking companies rarely accept fault without doing everything they can to avoid it first. Part of that fight usually includes disputing the conclusions in police reports, which they can and will do until the cows come home.

Some may think I'm just being cynical, but decades of working on commercial wrecks have taught me many important lessons about what their aftermath is likely to involve. In all that time, I can say without exaggeration that exactly one company simply admitted fault and tried to make things right. All the others fought every step of the way, so victims and families are best served by knowing what that might look like and how to overcome it. Click below to read more.
