With details like this, it's challenging to envision a scenario in which the truck driver did nothing wrong. This sort of thing is almost always the result of speeding, following too closely, or distracted driving. Looking into things like cell phone records and ECM data may confirm that. With that said, though, folks should never take a crash like this to be open-and-shut. The simple possibility of a company being involved is going to inherently present unique hurdles.

Companies are not in the business of getting people the help they need. Their only priority is to minimize or avoid losses. As such, they have experienced professionals dedicated to doing just that. That's how families find themselves in situations where trucking companies come up with all kinds of ways to duck the blame. Without the right experience and evidence, those obstacles can prove insurmountable.

One family, for example, had a company blame their loved one for not wearing a seatbelt only for our investigations to get numerous emergency service worker statements confirming they had to cut through the seatbelt to get to the victim. Others had sit there and listen to a company blame an ambulance's lights for being too bright rather than their driver who was on drugs at the time. I've even handled a situation where an insurance rep literally stole a victim's headlights to claim the truck driver couldn't have seen them before cutting them off.

At the end of the day, knowing how to anticipate and overcome these tactics is crucial for victims and families, which is why I always talk about the importance of seeking out experienced allies as soon as possible. Maybe nothing unusual happened here, but I don't see why anyone would take risks when their quality of life is on the line.
