Commentary on Kenneth Earl Stevenson Truck Accident in Live Oak

When it comes to a crash like this, it's important folks don't take the facts for granted. They see a rear-end collision, and they often just assume the victim will get the help they need. Unfortunately, there are almost always barriers between victims and the help they deserve.

A while back, for example, I handled a similar rear-end collision in which police found the truck driver was high on drugs at the time. Despite this, the company refused to take the blame. Why? According to them, it was the result of a nearby ambulance blinding their driver. Ridiculous as that is, it was our burden to prove them wrong.

Through our diligence, we tracked down the ambulance company that had a unit in the area of the crash. Their records clearly showed the unit was nearly a mile down the road and no where near close enough to blind anyone. Only after that could we get the judge to throw out that ludicrous defense and get a proper resolution.

Unfortunately, failing to take those steps can mean that even outrageous defenses like that can find footing. It's up to victims and families to ensure they have the right people handling things to keep that from happening. Overcoming those obstacles means anticipating them and having the tools and evidence that come with careful and experienced investigators.
