Commentary on Dawn Dingler Accident in Nacogdoches

If preliminary reports have their facts straight it seems like the victim was just minding her own business at a stop light when a commercial employee failed to yield to thru-traffic and ended up crashing into her SUV. Some might think it'd be easy to blame the impatient truck driver there, which would mean he and his employer would have little choice but to accept responsibility and make things right...right?

Not quite. It's the default position of almost any company to deny responsibility as loudly and as long as it can after its employee hurts someone, so if the company behind that truck can find a way to blame something else it will. They'll point at bad roads, hard-to-see traffic lights, the Ford driver for speeding (whether or not it's true), and any number of other scapegoats if it means getting their driver--and themselves--off the hot seat.

I've had to explain to many people who assumed they had a "cut-and-dried" claim against a trucking company that few accidents are really that straightforward. Click below to read more about some obstacles victims are likely to face, as well as ways to overcome them.
