On October 23, 2013, attorney Vuk Vujasinovic, pictured above, travelled to Pennsylvania to personally be involved in the investigation of the Greyhound crash on I 80. VB Attorneys represent a passenger on the Greyhound bus who was critically injured in the crash, and have filed the first lawsuit against Greyhound in Texas, where the company has its corporate headquarters.
VB Attorneys have retained a certified accident reconstruction expert, who is leading the investigation. Mr. Vujasinovic personally accompanied the expert to the scene today.
"The crash site is flat, with no hills, and the roadway is relatively straight," said Vujasinovic. "Based on these factors, and on our reading of the gouge and tire marks in the roadway, this crash sequence was very likely caused by the actions of the Greyhound bus driver. From my personal inspection of the scene, I just don't see how there is any way the bus driver did not see the commercial truck, if she was awake and alert. We will be looking very closely at this driver's hours behind the wheel leading up to this crash."
In the picture above, Mr. Vujasinovic can be seen working with his firm's accident reconstruction expert. "The gouge marks in the road that were are observing were created when the Greyhound bus rear ended the commercial truck," said Vujasinovic. "The positioning, pattern and depth of these gouge marks tell a detailed story about how this crash occurred, and the story does not end well for Greyhound."
It is crucial that the injured Greyhound bus passengers have an accident reconstruction investigation performed on their behalf. Greyhound has already had an army of lawyers and investigators comb over the scene. An injured passenger will definitely not want to accept Greyhound's investigation conclusions.
There is a lot of talk that Greyhound will simply "admit liability" for this crash. Not so fast. That almost never happens. In the multiple case VB Attorneys have handled against Greyhound, the company has never admitted liability. They always deny as much responsibility as they can.
That is why it is so important to conduct an independent investigation, and not rely on Greyhound's investigation.
Mr. Vujasinovic and the expert discovered and documented critical evidence at the scene of the crash, and will use this information to the benefit of the firm's clients. Further, Mr. Vujasinovic believes that a lawyer should never handle a case if they have not personally visited and analzed the accident scene.
VB Attorneys has three lawyers (Vuk Vujasinovic, Brian Beckcom, and Curtis Bickers) who are Board Certified in Personal Injury Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, a certification held by less than 2% of all the lawyers in Texas.
