Commentary on Motorcycle Tractor-Trailer Accident on Auburn Road in Laredo
As straight-forward as these details may seem, it's important that folks keep in mind the simple saying: It's not about what you know, but what you can prove. These details seem to paint a clear picture, and I have no reason to doubt them. But 30 years dealing with hundreds of companies whose employees harmed victims and families showed me all kinds of tactics they use to tip the scales in their favor.
One perfect example is with motorcyclists specifically. A lot of people are quick to just blame motorcyclists and assume they were speeding or being reckless. Trucking companies know this and go to great lengths to paint victims in a negative light. Without the right approach, even flimsy tactics can prove effective and detrimental to victims and their loved ones.
The best way to overcome this is to know the tactics ahead of time and gather clear evidence to prevent those bogus claims from finding footing. The article below helps explain these challenges and the possible steps to overcome them.
