Commentary on Lauren Berrier Truck Accident in Clinton County

Police certainly seem to think the truck driver involved here was in the wrong. Generally speaking, truck drivers aren't supposed to make turns unless they're absolutely sure they can do so safely.

But even when the facts seem clear, folks must always anticipate barriers between them and the help they deserve. Trucking companies and insurance companies have teams dedicated to avoiding responsibility, and without the right allies, victims and families can find their seemingly straight forward story is anything but.
