Litigation Partner Jeff Hosking successfully defended a nationwide motorcoach operator against multiple wrongful death and personal injury claims arising out of a bus accident that occurred in Colusa County in 2008. Plaintiffs were the heirs of eleven decedents who died in the accident and other injured passengers.
Plaintiffs claimed the motorcoach operator was negligent for failing to equip the bus with passenger seat belts. The case was tried to a defense verdict before a Sacramento jury following a four week trial. The trial team included Jason Shane and appellate specialist Lori Sebransky.
