Commentary

I suppose it's the media's job to give their opinion well before having all the facts. I say this because it seems the media always reports on truck accidents running on the presumption fault lay with the victims. While that may seem inconsequential to the general pubic, for victims of truck accidents and their loved ones, placing blame on the victims can be devastating. As is the case with all accidents, we feel it's best to examine the facts more exhaustively before jumping to conclusions.
