The operator of the bus registered the bus in two states using false addresses and a third party to complete the fraudulent paperwork.
Bus accidents have been in the headlines this year. Bus accidents have been blamed on missed curves, a fatigued driver, tire problems, and in one of my own cases, bus company employees racing the buses in the rain! Federal investigators, apperently, have discovered larger problems such as poor screening of drivers and bus companies that were shut down, but still operating in the United States.
I believe there needs to be tighter enforcement of the State and Federal Regulations of bus companies, especially those companies traveling to and from Mexico.
At the HART LAW FIRM I have been prosecuting claims and lawsuits against bus companies and trucking companies for years. In 2008, I obtained a judgment against a Dallas bus company (the owner referred to them as the "Mexican Greyhound") that travels to and from Mexico in the amount of $2.5 Million for the death of a mother of 12 grown children.
