Commentary on Cuahutemoc Aranda Truck Accident in Montgomery County

When it comes to rear-end collisions like this, folks are quick to assume there's nothing too challenging about the situation. Unfortunately, I've seen a lot of less experienced attorneys make this mistake, and its the victims and families that pay the price for their haphazard attitude.

Put simply, any crash involving a commercial vehicle is going to present unique challenges which need to be anticipated. Damning as the facts may be, there's still a company on the other side that's going to do everything in their power to avoid responsibility.

I'll give a clear example. A while back, I handled a situation where it was clear as day that a truck driver was on his phone when he rear-ended another driver. That company, however, claimed the driver didn't own a phone. That sure didn't seem too likely, but the burden was on us to prove as such.

Thanks to a strategic deposition our team put together, we tripped up the driver in his own stories, and we got him to admit he did indeed own a phone. After that, we were able to get court orders for the records, and they clearly showed the man had been watching pornography (yes, really) instead of watching the road.

I'm not trying to say anything like that happened here, just to be clear. For all I know, this is some one-in-a-million situation the truck driver couldn't avoid. My point is simply that folks can't take the details for granted. They need to ensure they have the ability to tell the whole story and to back that all up with evidence. Are those steps being taken here?
