An investigation to this accident will prove essential due to the fact that a commercial truck put at least five bus passengers at risk. Because the commercial truck slammed into the stalled Greyhound bus, the driver of the semi-truck, and the trucking company, may be liable for any damages brought forth upon the Greyhound bus.
The elements of liability, damages, and the ability to pay are critical in determining the value of a case or claim. Without all three elements, a case has little to no value given the nature of our legal system.
