Personal Injury Attorneys in Houston Represent Victims of Horrific Tour Bus Crash
Cartwright Law Firm Traveled to Crash Site in Mexico
Houston, Texas (Marketwire) June 4, 2009—The Cartwright Law Firm, noted personal injury attorneys in Houston, have been retained by five victims, including the family of one of the deceased, in a tragic accident in Saltillo, Mexico on March 16, 2009.
The accident involved a devastating head on collision between a tractor-trailer and a Grupo Senda tour bus. Twelve U.S. and Canadian citizens were killed and fifteen were seriously injured while traveling to Zacatecas, Mexico. Upon impact, the tour bus driver and the passengers in the first six rows behind him were killed as the tractor-trailer hit the front of the bus and climbed up into the coach, crushing the passengers beneath. The Houston personal injury attorneys filed suit against Grupo Senda Bus Company, Viva Mexico Tours, and other defendants in Hidalgo County, Texas on the basis of common carrier liability, wrongful death and personal injury.
Official Mexican government reports indicate both vehicles were speeding in a construction zone when the accident occurred.
The catastrophic injury attorneys at the Cartwright Law Firm traveled to Mexico with accident reconstruction experts to investigate the remains of the tour bus as well as the tractor trailer that struck the bus. An accident of this magnitude has profound psychological effects on the victims and their family. In addition, medical expenses and rehabilitation can run into six figure sums and may exceed limits on insurance benefits.
“One minute a group of American and Canadian tourists were headed to the City of Zacatecas,” said Houston personal injury attorney Daniel S. Cartwright. “Then the unthinkable happened. The speeding vehicles collided and 12 lives were lost and 15 other innocent passengers were seriously injured. We have made a commitment to the victims and the family of one of the deceased that justice will be served and they will be compensated for this violent accident.”
