Commentary on Houston Man 18-wheeler Accident on US 290 in Hempstead

Generally speaking, when an 18-wheeler rear-ends traffic, it's pretty straight-forward. This sort of thing is usually the result of distracted driving, speeding, or following too closely. But these crashes are still best off in the hands of experienced professionals that will leave no stone unturned. That's for two main reasons.

One, likely or not, this crash may be the result of factors the 18-wheeler driver couldn't avoid. I'm not one to blame anyone without clear evidence, and folks would be prudent to be equally cautious. Secondly, even if the cause of the crash is simple, the process of holding someone responsible rarely is. This is due to the inherent challenges of crashes involving commercial vehicles and the companies that own them. Understanding their tactics may help explain why a crash like this may be far more challenging than the initial details make it seem.
