Commentary on Andy Polanco, Jonathan Jimenez Car Accident in Amarillo
A common mistake I see from people is thinking a car accident like this is always straight-forward. In reality, it's not always as simple as just finding out who had the right-of-way or if someone was on their phone. Common or not, proper investigations must consider all kinds of possible factors--mechanical issues, faulty traffic signals, dangerous intersection, medical conditions, people illegally over-served by local bars, other reckless drivers that left the scene, etc. If folks think authorities would be on top of all that, I've got 30 years of clients who could teach them a thing or two. The article below would be a prudent place to start that learning process.
