Carrollton, VA -- October 10, 2022, James Edward Bailey was killed due to an accident where a moped hit a commercial truck.

Commentary on James Edward Bailey Truck Accident in Carrollton

There are several details here which are no doubt going to muddy the waters and make it difficult for folks without much experience to get a grasp on what may come next. On one hand, officials say a moped rear-ended a stationary truck. On the other, authorities say that truck was parked improperly and even said there may be citations pending. Who is responsible, then?

I certainly can't say without more thorough investigations, but I can say from experience just how crucial proper investigations will be. Put simply, Virginia has laws which inherently benefit trucking companies and insurance companies. It makes it easier for them to shift blame onto victims regardless of what kind of evidence they may or may not have.

While not insurmountable, those barriers can prove significant without the right evidence and legal strategy. Are steps being taken here to ensure the evidence can tell the victim's side of the story? If left solely up to the authorities, my concern is there won't be enough weight to balance the scales and ensure those affected by this tragedy get a fair fight for the resolution they deserve.
