Espinoza v. Squaw Creek Transportation, Inc.
In this bus accident case, dozens of Spanish-speaking employees of Destination Tahoe Hotels, Inc., were being transported to work at a resort in Truckee from their homes in Reno when the bus operator fell asleep and lost control of the bus. The bus went off the road and rolled over. Two passengers were killed and many were severely injured. Our firm’s Spanish speaking staff worked closely with the injured victims to ensure all their questions were answered. Our lawyers discovered that the bus driver did not have the required amount of rest prior to beginning his shift and that the bus had not been properly maintained. As a result of our aggressive tactics, we were able to settle the case for a substantial amount prior to trial.
