Commentary on Elisabett Oceguera Accident in Austin
One of the biggest misconceptions I deal with is that single-vehicle wrecks are always 100% the drivers' fault. Sometimes that's accurate, as things like speeding and distracted driving are often involved. Is it always true though? Not even close.
The law is nuanced enough to consider all a wreck's potential factors, and how much of a role each one played. Did the victim's car have mechanical problems or defects? Did a tire blow out? Was the road hazardous? Was the driver awake, alert, in good health, and focused on the road? Could another vehicle have run her off the road but left the scene?
If authorities aren't asking and answering those questions, crucial details may be slipping through the cracks. That's obviously a problem for anyone looking for answers or help down the road. Click below to learn more.
