Injured Charter Bus Crash Victims Can Turn to USClaimsDecember 17, 2015
By the time “Ron” (not a real person) heard what had happened, his wife “Bonnie” already was on the helicopter. Soon they were both flying to the hospital, except Ron was in his car, and Bonnie was fighting for her life.
Later, Bonnie would tell her husband that she remembered the chartered bus veering off the road and into the trees. She heard and felt the jolt of the crash and watched as the bus crumpled around her, trapping her in place. In that instant, what was supposed to be a fun shopping trip with her girlfriends into the city turned into a nightmare. Firefighters had to spend nearly an hour cutting the bus open to set the woman and the other injured would-be holiday shoppers free.
Investigators later would find that not only had the tour bus driver been drinking shortly before getting behind the wheel for the trip, but that his prior driving history was littered with crashes, moving violations, and three earlier DUI incidents stretching back over previous years.
Why was this man driving a bus at all? The charter bus company, not surprisingly, wasn’t talking.
Ron and Bonnie hired an attorney, who told them that they may have a case for recouping the cost of Bonnie’s injuries and medical care from the bus company.
That was all well and good, but it didn’t help Bonnie’s family with the bills that were already arriving in the mail. In addition to her initial trauma treatment, Bonnie was facing months of physical therapy and follow-up. The family’s health insurance coverage still left them with tens of thousands of dollars in copays and uncovered expenses. After hearing about their financial plight, their attorney told them to call USClaims.
