Commentary on Thomas Loner Tanker Truck Accident in Union County
When it comes to commercial truck rollovers, it's important people understand why they can be so complex. It's not always as simple as finding out the cause of the crash. The cause of a victim's injuries is also important to consider. But how could those be different?
Particularly with commercial truck rollovers, there's an issue authorities unfortunately don't look into often: the condition of the cabin. Many manufacturers will simply build exactly what the law requires, which does not live up to modern safety standards. But just because it may be legal doesn't mean they're off the hook when their laziness gets someone killed.
While considering information provided in the article below, folks should ask themselves: Would this man still be alive if he was in a truck made by a more responsible manufacturer? If not, then perhaps the cause of the crash is the only factor worth considering. If so, are investigations considering these factors thoroughly?
