On Friday, April 1, 2011, a 10-year-old girl was tragically killed when a school bus and a tractor trailer collided on Highway 61 and Highway 450, near Shaw in Bolivar County, Mississippi. Several other children sustained life-threatening injuries in the wreck.Â Several Bolivar County emergency services agencies, including the Bolivar County Sheriffâ€™s Department, the Mississippi Highway Patrol, and Pafford EMS, have rushed to the accident scene to begin rescuing the students and drivers from the wreckage. Details are currently emerging about the accident, and so far, it is known that both vehicles flipped over upon impact.
The lawyers of Nahon, Saharovich, and Trotz (NST Law) handle catastrophic injuries caused by the negligence of drivers in automobile, bus, and tractor trailer (18-wheeler) accidents.Â In order to recover compensation for injuries, one must prove that another driver caused the accident. Therefore, NST lawyers thoroughly investigate each accident to determine the at-fault party.Â The best time to investigate is immediately after an accident. Key evidence such as tire marks can be lost and witnesses can disappear. A Mississippi car accident lawyer from Nahon, Saharovich, and Trotz may visit the accident scene and/or hire an expert to reconstruct the accident to determine a driverâ€™s negligence. In this case, NST lawyers may contact the Bolivar County Sheriffâ€™s Department or the Mississippi Highway Patrol to find out exactly how the accident occurred. We may interview witnesses in Bolivar and surround areas to help bolster our clientâ€™s theory of liability.
