Commentary on Urashi Madani, Delanie Fekert Tow Truck Accident in Boston

Just to be clear, all the time on this blog I address the misconception that the rear driver in accidents like this is always at fault. That's simply not true, and I don't make exceptions for commercial vehicles drivers despite the reputation some lawyers may have in the public eye. That said, the most common explanations in these situations is that a driver was inattentive, speeding, or following too closely. While less likely, unavoidable factors absolutely warrant investigations, even these more common possibilities can involve unique hurdles that require experienced professionals.

Not long ago, for example, I handled a situation in which a truck driver caused a crash while texting and driving. As damning as that was, we kept digging to be certain we knew all the facts. That effort revealed there was more to the crash than just a simple reckless driver.

That particular truck driver had been responding to his supervisor. The supervisor would constantly call and text drivers all day, and if they didn't respond right away, they essentially risked getting fired. It was just a matter of time before that led to someone getting hurt, and that's exactly what happened.

So what does that have to do with this tragic event? Put simply, folks take early details for granted, but further steps are almost always necessary to ensure victims' loved ones have every opportunity they deserve to see accountability for their hardships. It's not enough to simply blame someone for a deadly crash. It's important to ensure all responsible parties face the appropriate consequences. Whether that's a truck driver, a reckless business, or some other unusual factor police have yet to look into, thorough investigations are a prudent step toward making things as right as they can be. Whether or not those steps are being taken here remains to be seen.
