Buchanan County Fatal Accident

Life is odd, full of irony. One can go from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows all in a matter of the blink of an eye. How does life spin out of control to such an extent? The whys, can be elusive? The pain though, is very real. And like true love, being famous and losing it, is one of the most painful experiences. Because when you've never had it you have no idea what you're missing. Being involved in a fatal accident has a way of bringing the once famous, crashing back down to Earth.

To those seeking quick answers in this rear-end-truck to tractor crash, get ready to be frustrated. Because with the criminal case moving forward, answers are a long way off. Before anyone gets to know the truth, a lot of questions need to be asked and answered. And before that happens the criminal case needs to wind its way through the courts.

It's a fair question to ask what one should do as the criminal process winds through the courts, And the answer is not nothing. There is a lot that can be done while the criminal case moves at a glacial pace through the Buchanan County criminal justice system. 

First and foremost an estate will need to be opened. An executor appointed. And then the executor will select and hire a lawyer to assist the attorney for the estate with gathering and preserving the evidence.

Facts need to be evaluated quickly. Evidence needs to be gather and preserved. Witnesses need to be questioned. Who, what, where, when and how? In a wrongful death claim time is not on your side. Time destroys exactly what is necessary to make this and every other claim. The first order of business would be to photograph the John Deere tractor, the pickup truck and the accident scene. That step one. Step two is for some other day. So come back and read our blog because today I have paying clients cases with which to deal.

The minimal crash report is out for a fatal accident in Buchanan County, Iowa on April 24, 2017. I’ll let the report speak for itself. It requires no discussion.

And so that the record is clear. I never liked the Bachelor or the Bachelorette. The premise of the show is faulty. One cannot find true love from a panel picked by a TV show over a set schedule. It’s a recipe for a disaster, which by the way, this will become. And then I have to wonder, what decent man or woman would agree to listen to "I love you's" when the one saying it is dating twenty other people while saying it? Makes no sense.

I rest my case.
