Commentary on Roberto Rodriguez Motorcycle Accident in Palmhurst
Experience taught me to always take initial details from authorities with a grain of salt due to the fact they're likely not telling the whole story. That's especially true when it comes to motorcyclists.
Put simply, folks are quick to assume a motorcyclist was being reckless, and that leads them to jump to conclusions. Even authorities can let something important slip through the cracks because they may think they already know what happened.
For victims and families in need, this can obviously be a significant obstacle to overcome. Ensuring there are independent investigations is one way to anticipate and overcome those barriers to get them the help they deserve. Hopefully those steps are being taken.
