Rosalba Ruiz, 53, Killed Desert Hot Springs Tour Bus Crash 10 Freeway

fatal bus accidentDESERT HOT SPRINGS, California (Oct. 23, 2016) — One family received devastating news Sunday when their learned Rosalba Ruiz, 53, was one of 13 killed early this morning in a deadly tour bus crash on the Interstate 10 Freeway, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The mother of three children and young grandmother of four who lived in Los Angeles with her husband was among the 10 women and three men who died early this morning when the bus crashed into the back of a semi-tractor trailer truck.

The family went to three hospitals, but could not find her so they ended up at the coroner’s office where they learned the horrible news.

A family member told the Times Ruiz enjoyed going to casinos.

Police say the tour bus crashed into the truck about 5:17 a.m. this morning near Indian Canyon. The impact between the two vehicles crushed the front end of the 1996 USA Holiday bus as it struck the truck’s trailer in the westbound lanes. There were no skid marks found on the roadway indicating the driver didn’t see the truck ahead of him.

The cause of the collision is under investigation by police and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as they attempt to determine the exact cause. Some theories are the driver may have been distracted, fatigued or had a medical condition. Police will also look into whether drugs or alcohol were facts.

“The investigation into this horrible crash is going to take significant time, but relatives of victims killed need answers,” said Attorney James Johnson. “Those who were badly injured in the crash will likely need extensive medical help to recover.”

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
