Commentary on James Reese Accident in Choctaw County
People may read the few facts available in preliminary reports and decide the driver just made a common mistake at the wheel, like speeding or texting instead of watching the road. Things like that should be investigated, of course, but it's important not to take them or anything else for granted. Other potential factors should also be considered; for instance, what if a product malfunction or defect played a part in the crash or in the victim's tragically-fatal injuries?
People often have no grasp of how many crashes are caused by defective or malfunctioning vehicles--often because many wrecks they cause are ultimately blamed on something else when police investigators don't always have the time, tools, or training to look close enough to find something as complex as a defect. It's always best to have the facts straight, and sometimes that means getting independent investigators to have another look. Click the image below to learn more.
