Another catastrophic bus rollover in South Texas has claimed the lives of 8 passengers and has injured another 44 passengers. Authorities say the chartered bus belonging to OGA Charters was headed from San Juan, Texas, in the Rio Grande Valley, to Eagle Pass, Texas. The crash happened on US 83 north of Laredo in Webb County, Texas. Authorities say the bus rollover involved only one vehicle.
This is not the first catastrophic bus rollover in South Texas. A bus carrying numerous passengers also rolled over near Laredo on April 20, 2014. Several people died and many were injured. Bus rollover attorneys Mario E. de la Garza and Jesus Garcia, Jr. of Garcia de la Garza represented some of the victims of that 2014 bus rollover. Garcia de la Garza’s bus rollover attorneys moved quickly to secure the necessary evidence and experts required to investigate the rollover in 2014. In the end, Garcia de la Garza’s bus rollover attorneys were successful for their clients, recovering a significant amount of money to compensate them for their severe injuries from that 2014 bus rollover.
When an incident like this occurs, the victims or their survivors need to move quickly to hire qualified bus rollover attorneys to handle the case. Many victims or their survivors will seek out an attorney and go with the first one they encounter. Unfortunately, in many cases, the first attorney a victim reaches has not previously had success in a bus rollover case. The biggest mistake the victim or their survivor can make it to sign with lawyers that do not have the adequate experience in dealing with catastrophic bus rollovers, are seeking a quick pay day, and are not prepared or adequately funded to properly fight the fight.
