Commentary on Ricky Self Truck Accident in Temple
With a crash this serious, it's important there are steps to ensure nothing important slips through the cracks. Things aren't always as simple as folks realize.
Not that long ago, for example, a family came to me with details similar to these. When we had independent accident reconstructionists look into things, it turned out authorities completely got the facts wrong.
They said the victim veered over the center line, but they only did so because the 18-wheeler involved did so first. The 18-wheeler then veered back to the right where the vehicles collided. Without more thorough independent investigations, it's possible the truth never would have come to light.
This is a problem that's more common than anyone should be comfortable with. That's why it's so important to understand these potential shortcomings and the remedies to them.
