Commentary on Saul Valenzuela Accident in San Antonio

Of all the kinds of accidents I discuss on this blog, hands-down the ones that get the most premature speculation are single-vehicle wrecks. People tend to consider them generally the fault of the person at the wheel for losing control, whether through speeding, getting distracted by something, or even driving while impaired.

Statistics bear that thinking out to some degree, but at the same time nothing should ever be taken for granted. Thirty years of helping victims and families after these accidents taught me that unusual factors contribute all the time to accidents, so it's important to consider them as well.

Vehicle malfunctions and defects, road hazards, medical emergencies--all these and more deserve attention as possible factors, and the victim deserves the benefit of the doubt until only clear evidence tells the story. To make sure that story is learned, steps must be taken to ensure no important details were overlooked. Click below to learn more.
