Commentary on Juan Sanchez Car Accident in Pearsall
While something like a video can be crucial evidence after a car accident, it's important to remember that it's still just one piece of the puzzle. Professional accident reconstructionists don't see a video and just base their whole report on that. They look into countless other factors to ensure nothing unusual slips through the cracks. My concern, though, is that police sometimes rely heavily on something they may feel is obvious or simple. As a result, they can overlook important details that the victims and families need to know. Perhaps they were more thorough here, but it's important that folks understand these potential shortcomings and what can be done about them.
