On a pleasant Tuesday afternoon, a group of people from Bastrop were on a weeklong journey to a casino in Biloxi. These folks were all part of the Bastrop Senior Center.

Having reached Biloxi, the travelers were on a tour bus and began crossing railroad tracks as a matter of motoring routine. And then, at 2:15 in the afternoon, the lives of these 49 Bastrop residences horrifically changed forever.

The investigation into the specific facts is still underway. What is known is that whilst crossing the tracks, the bus somehow became stuck in the railroad tracks. Within about a minute, a train powered by three locomotives smashed into the impeded bus. The speed and force of the collision was powerful enough to drag the bus the length of a football field down the tracks before it came to a final stop.

A day after the horrific accident, the official investigation is beginning. What is known is that three people were pronounced dead at the scene. One more individual died several hours later at an area hospital. About three dozen other individuals are hospitalized, some in serious condition.

A few people were able to escape the collision at the very last moment by jumping out the back door of the bus. Rescue personnel spent a good deal of time working to extract injured people from the wrecked bus.

A local resident, who lives near the bus crossing, posted a video to social media not long after the accident. He witnessed the event. In his video, the neighbor makes it clear that residents of the area have frequently complained about the railroad crossing being problematic and dangerous.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
