1 dead, 26 injured in California car accidents with bus

In the state of California, and in other U.S. states, a person has a right to file a wrongful death civil claim if they have lost a loved one to a car accident caused by another's negligence. If their loved one has suffered injuries because of a negligent driver, the injured person can file a personal injury claim. If a company-owned vehicle is at fault in car accidents, one can file claims against both the driver and the company for which he or she drives. A recent California accident is an example of all three.

One person is dead and many others have been injured in a crash that happened Monday, February 27. The accident involving the bus and two cars took place in the desert of Southern California when a tour bus crossed into the westbound lanes of State Route 58.  Nine of the victims sustained life-threatening injuries, while the other 17 suffered more moderate injuries. The woman who died was 55 years old.

The tour bus was owned by A&F Tours from Arcadia, CA. It is unclear why the bus crossed into oncoming traffic and crashed into several cars. There was no bad weather, or other obvious reason for the car accident, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Brian Benson. 

According to records from the United States Department of Transportation, the company's vehicles had been inspected 22 times during the last two years, and one of the company's buses had been removed from service. No accidents had been reported within that time. Both the bus and the safety record of the company will be assessed in the post-accident investigation.

When someone affected by such car accidents suffers injury, the loss of a loved one, or an injury to a loved one due to negligence, a good personal injury or wrongful death attorney can help insure that he or she receives the help that he or she is owed. Missing time from work, medical bills, funeral costs, and other expenses can often place unnecessary financial strain on a family. A successful civil suit can help alleviate that weight.
