Commentary on Nicholas Bellman Truck Accident in Alexandria

People see reports like these and typically assume everything is open-and-shut. After all, police say the truck driver was cited. What more could there be to discuss? Well, most people lack 30 years of experience dealing with trucking and insurance companies. As such, they don't realize that what police say is not the final word after a serious wreck. Getting the victims and families the help they need means having extensive evidence and solid legal foundation to ensure nothing can muddy the waters.

One possible concern, for example, is that people are more likely to believe claims about a motorcyclist being reckless. Companies will often try to shift blame onto the victims by claiming that the victim was speeding, weaving through traffic, driving on the shoulder, etc. Even without evidence, folks may believe these claims simply because they're already primed to blame motorcyclists after a crash.

With enough evidence, though, those biases can only go so far. Evidence is just about the most valuable tool one can have on their side, which is why it's often best to ensure independent accident reconstructionists look into a claim like this. After all, they say it's not about what you know but what you can prove. Are steps being taken here to prove exactly who and what is responsible for the victim's injuries?
