According to KOCO.com at least two (2) people were taken to local hospitals when an SUV crashed into an Oklahoma City print shop late Monday.
The wreck happened at Northwest Expressway and Rockwell in Oklahoma City when
a U-Haul truck rear-ended an SUV around 8:30 p.m. Officers think the SUV driver hit the gas instead of the brake and slammed into Cartridge World.
Two things are worthy to note. First, we hope the injured make a full and speedy recovery. The second item is these individuals may have difficult recovering from their injuries as the insurance on these vehicles will attempt to fight it out leaving the injured in the print shop to battle both insurances.
Why? Sounds simple that the U-Haul rear-ended the car doesn’t it so the U-Haul driver is at-fault? Never underestimate the ability of an insurance company to throw away common sense in favor of monetary gain. I’m certain the U-Haul’s insurance company will want to say the driver of the SUV reacted improperly and as such is the proximate cause of the collision. The SUV driver will of course say the U-Haul caused the events that led to the collision.
Deny, Delay and Defend! Even when you’re a completely innocent victim this is the mantra of the insurance industry.
