Florida Bus Company Fails to Respond To Deadly Crash in Philippines

If an accident happens and the responsible party refuses to communicate, can you still take action?

Absolutely. Just because an at-fault company fails to respond to an accident and the ensuing claims, you still have legal recourse. Our lawyers at Steinger, Greene & Feiner want you to know that you have rights that should be exercised and we are here to be your voice.

Such is the case of this Florida-based transportation company, who has yet to formally respond to their victims. GV Florida Transport, a company operating in the Philippines, is under scrutiny after a fatal crash in Bontoc, Mountain Province, in which a bus fell into a ravine – killing 14 and injuring more than 30. These victims, and family members of those lost in the bus accident, are signing a petition, asking the company to step-up and give them answers.

One survivor, whose injuries are “less severe” than other passengers, has already incurred up to $50,000 in medical costs. Without a statement direct from GV Florida Transport or its representatives, and bills piling up, victims are left wondering what the next step might be in collecting due compensation.

As a result of the company’s lack of response, GV Florida’s franchise has been suspended by the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) for 30-days pending an investigation. The LTFRB found that the ill-fated bus bound for Bontoc was not authorized to operate.

A hearing connected to the bus crash in Bontoc is scheduled at 9 am on February 19th.

Don’t let the silence of at-fault parties make you feel helpless, or worse go uncontested. If you or a loved one were injured in an accident like this, you do have a right to justice. Steinger, Greene & Feiner have years of experience fighting to make our clients’ voices heard. Our thoughts go out to everyone involved in this unfortunate crash and hope that if you need us to help sort through the pieces, you won’t hesitate to reach out.

Steinger, Greene & Feiner Pick Up the Tab for Stellar Kids Camp

When Coach John Mistretta–founder of the West Palm Beach, Florida, non-profit Stellar Kids, Inc .–approached Steinger, Greene & Feiner about supporting this summer’s Stellar Kids Camp, our law firm knew it was the opportunity we’d been looking for.

“People today, more than ever, could use a little help,” says founding firm partner Michael Steinger. “Coach John has been serving our community for years with a steadfast commitment to youth development. Based on his history and vision through Stellar Kids Camp, we had full confidence that our support would directly benefit the parents and children who could use some good news the most. I hope that our investment can inspire other local businesses to invest in the programs and visionaries who are making a real difference in the lives of real people and the future of our world, our youth.”

With the financial support of Steinger, Greene & Feiner, this summer’s leasing expense for Stellar Kids Camp is no longer limiting Coach John’s vision to positively impact more children’s lives. 100% of the $10,000 contribution by Steinger, Greene & Feiner will go directly to the School District of Palm Beach County and School Principal Fund for the leasing of Odyssey Middle School for the eight weeks of camp, June 6 – July 28th.

For the past decade, Coach John has held summer camp annually for upwards of 170 children without a single major contributor. Through his steadfast dedication to youth empowerment alongside the Sherriff’s Department, School Boards, Correctional Facility Counselors, and Afterschool Program Directors, Coach John is able to minimize his operating costs for camp as vendors, community foundations, and activity providers honor his commitment with significantly reduced rates for coaching, class instructors, activity rental equipment, sporting equipment, and more.

Stellar Kids Camp is significantly less expensive than other camps in the area – Monday – Thursday 9am – 4pm is only $95 a week. Now that the tab has been picked up for use of Odyssey Middle School’s grounds for the summer, Coach John is ecstatic to offer families who can use a break this summer partial scholarships, bringing camp tuition down to only $50 a week.

For more information, or to donate to Stellar Kids Camp, so even more children can attend camp this summer, please contact Stellar Kids Camp Founder Coach John Mistretta at 561.577.3399 or send your tax-deductible donations to Stellar Kids Inc., 7394 Hazelwood Circle, Lake Worth, Florida 33467.
