Commentary on Luz Sanchez Accident on I-35 in Lewisville

If police got things right then it seems like the truck driver plowed into the victims and would be at fault. In that case most might think the driver (and by extension his employer) would step up and try to make things right. However, commercial wrecks are rarely so simple to resolve. It's always important to investigate them carefully and learn all the facts--not only so everyone's on the same page, but also because clear facts and evidence are usually needed to hold a trucking company accountable.

Experience has taught me that most companies will fight tooth and nail against accepting liability. They have a lot of tricks and strategies to help them dispute it, from blaming whatever else they can to simply dragging their feet and promising to make things right "once our investigation is complete," but victims and families are best served by knowing these for the self-serving tactics they are.
