Two Die in Double-Decker Bus Accident

Posted By Houston Car Accident Lawyer || 31-May-2010

Two people died in a Washington D.C. bus accident on a company-sponsored outing when the open-air sightseeing bus narrowly cleared an overpass, but the two passengers struck the 11th Street overpass.

Joshua Stoll, 24, and Michael Feiock, 35, who recently moved to the area, were with co-workers on a Friday night when the company bus left RFK Stadium to watch the Washington Nationals take on the Houston Astros recently. The bus passed safely under at least one overpass near the stadium's parking lot before the accident, D.C. officials said.

The victims were reportedly the only two passengers standing on the upper deck of the bus, and there were no other injuries.

Witnesses reportedly said that while riding on the second level of the bus that day they recalled having to dodge branches and other low-hanging trees. As the bus approached the 11th Street overpass, those same witnesses said they noticed how close seated passengers were to the overpass. An investigation was still under way to determine where they were on the bus, whether they were facing the right direction at the time of the accident, and if it was driver of passenger error that led to the deaths.

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.
