    Lawyers get a third of law suits,so they naturally look for the deepest pockets.
    I wonder if lawyers seek out victims to see what they can sue for.

    Our world is getting where it is not safe to leave the house.

    Most if not all trucking companies and their insurance carriers will settle out of court for a large sum. The ambulance chasers are well aware of this.

    Remember Werner was sued a few years ago because a car lost control in the snow and hit him head on. The jury awarded them something like 100 million

    That is why they will pay just to settle out of court even if the trucking company is not at fault. You never know what a jury will do.

    It depends if the truck driver has one of those safety departments that blame you for driving on icy roads. It's a double whammy if it's in writing and the driver signed it

    I don't know the details yet but I heard on radio news today that a FedEx rig crashed into a police vehicle & the car the officer had stopped. It happened on I30 south of Little Rock. Two college students in the car that was stopped were killed & the officer was injured. This is tragic & should never have happened.
