Commentary on Jason Anthony Torres Semi-truck Accident in Fort Bend County
With a commercial vehicle wreck this serious, it's concerning when there aren't more details available. This isn't because I'm just digging for answers. On the contrary, it's because I've seen how this can be a reflection of how authorities aren't giving the crash the attention it deserves. The more time there is between a truck wreck and the victims and families getting the facts, the more time companies have to push the narrative in their favor. Were any steps taken to anticipate those challenges?
Simply put, trucking companies and insurance companies have one priority: avoid responsibility. They are not out here trying to help people. At best, a company may simply do as little as possible to cooperate beyond the bare minimum unless required to. At worst, I've seen companies manipulate families into signing away their rights, fly lawyers to the scene of a crash to talk to authorities, and even falsify evidence to push some bogus defense.
Whatever happened here, my concern is that victims and families deserve to have all the facts. Are steps being taken here to ensure the right people are looking into the details?
