Ollie The Trolley Crashes, Injures 15

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 29-Nov-2010

Ollie The Trolley, a specialized bus that tours Downtown Omaha, Nebraska, was a participant in a major accident last month.

The crash, which took place on Florence Boulevard and Cass Street, in Omaha, happened when a driver of a Chevy Blazer, driven by Lois Rasmussen, hit the trolley carrying Campfire USA kids on a field trip. 

Most of the children were injured, reports say. And those not hospitalized were shaken up. In all, paramedics took 14 kids and one adult to Creighton University Medical Center.  The hospital has reportedly confirmed that all the children who were taken to the hospital were treated for minor injuries and released.

Ms., Rasmussen was ticketed for not yielding the right-of-way, but has evidently stated that she was stopped when the accident occurred, reports say.

During the investigation, the families of the injured will likely have questions for both the trolley company and the driver of the SUV. Questions need to be addressed by experts.

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.
