I wanted to follow up on the trucking accident that killed a family of 4 from Joplin, Missouri. Azcentral.com is reporting that police are recommending that the truck driver be charged with 4 counts of negligent homicide.
If you recall, the accident happened in Pryor Oklahoma where the truck driver negligently rear-ended the family of 4 at a stop light.
This sad story once again reiterates the seriousness of trucking accidents. If you or a family member are involved in any such accident, seek counsel immediatly. These semi’s have ECM (black box) and other important data that needs to be preserved. Further, they can destroy the trucking logs per Federal Law after 6 months. Don’t trust the insurance companies as they have no desire to resolve trucking claims for what they are worth.
Once again our prayers go out to this family.
