Commentary on Semi-Truck Accident on Little Cove Road in Warren Township
With incidents like this, it's important folks don't go jumping to conclusions. I understand why folks see a lawyer talking about a truck wreck and just assume I'm out to get truckers. But then when something like this happens, I'm one of the few people (if not the only one) cautioning others that this sort of thing isn't always the driver's fault. In fact, there can be unique problems that require more thorough independent investigations.
One in particular I feel gets far too little attention is the ability of trucks to withstand rollovers. Many manufacturers continue to build trucks such that they can't hold up in what should otherwise be moderate or minor wrecks. The average motorist's vehicle can typically withstand a rollover, yet a lot of commercial trucks will simply disintegrate like cardboard. This is a serious issue in the industry, and folks need to understand how thorough investigators can include that in their work. Are those steps being taken here?
