Victor Joshua Madrid Injured in Truck Accident in Ector County, TX

To be clear up front, I can't say anything about what happened here beyond what's already available to the public. But one of the most challenging things for people to accept when I talk about it is considering all the ways a driver can get hurt without doing anything wrong. Even when the facts seem one-sided, there's an example of why thorough investigations revealed another side to the story.

Let's consider what's said about this crash just as an example. It appears FM 2020 has a stop sign, so there may be some assumptions the driver ran the stop sign. That's entirely possible, but not that long ago I looked into a crash out in West Texas where a man was blamed for running a stop sign. Further investigations, however, showed that TxDOT had actually removed those stop signs earlier in the day but forgot to replace them.

Did something unusual like that happen here? As I said, I can't say. But I also wouldn't be able to say the driver did anything wrong without seeing clear evidence, and that's why I try to help people understand. Others in my profession certainly jump to find someone to blame, which is why the reputation of attorneys is less than stellar. But I learned a long time ago that the more prudent approach for everyone is simply to let the evidence speak for itself. I see no reason why this crash would be an exception.
