There is no evidence at this time to suggest that the semi-truck driver was operating the rig in an unlawful manner. There is no evidence to suggest that the commercial truck was going at an impermissibly slow rate of speed.

The official California Highway Patrol statement to date indicates that the USA Holiday your bus made no attempt to brake as it bore down on the semi-truck. Although there were skid marks on the roadway, bus accident investigators indicate that the skid marks came from the truck. The skid marks were created when the tour bus slammed into the back of the trailer being hauled by the rig.

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.
