When I was involved in a Automobile accident, my wife said you have to called Montlick & Associates. That was the best called I have ever made. Attorney Jason took my case and he did an exceptional Job from start to finish. He kept me informed throughout the process. Thanks Montlick & Associates for providing excellent service.
This is my second time using Montlick & Associates. I was referred to them by my brother who had previously used them for an accident he was involved in. After hiring them for my first accident case I was very impressed. They made sure I understood the whole process and was willing to answer any questions I had. My first accident case settled for 50k and my second case was for 80k. My attorney was Aaron Monick. He’s truly one of the best attorneys in the business. Needless to say, I was very happy with both outcomes. If u need an accident attorney, do yourself a huge favor and contact Montlick & Associates, I guarantee u that you won’t regret it. Their customer service and professionalism and A1!

I am so happy with the results that Jason got for my case. All other practices wouldn't take my case but not Jason. He knew I had a bad fall and injury. He and Esmerelda worked so hard and informed me of every detail immediately. I highly recommend their services. If I ever need an accident attorney, I will not hesitate to call Jason. Thank you and I hope you enjoyed the goodies I baked for you. I will forever be grateful for the settlement you got for me.
My experience with Montlick and having Ms. Sara Root alongside her team member went above the call of duty to assist me and daughter after our accident a few months. I'm very grateful to have them on my side the whole step of the way.Thanks again Ms. Sara Root, Chris Gladys and the rest of Montlick & Associates.
Jason and Kalena took great care of me! This was my second experience with Jason and his team and I truly feel seen and heard every time. This time around, the accident was extremely rough. My life was in shambles and I am still baffled at how reassuring everyone was consistently. I trust his expertise wholeheartedly. I am always satisfied with his communication and overall results. I hope I don't have to deal with an accident ever again but if I had to deal, I know where I am headed. I appreciate you all!!
I had an amazing experience with Montlick & Associates. I had my first car accident and never had to go through anything like this before. Cate and Amy were extremely helpful, reassuring, and answered any questions I had in a timely manner whether it be email or a phone call. Great communication and very friendly, satisfied with my settlement as well. If I ever have another accident I would love to get Cate and Amy again! Thank you.

Serving Bus Accident Injury Victims Nationwide

After a Bus Accident, Montlick Is the Right Call.

Bus accidents are hardly a rare event, with an average of more than 60,000 bus accidents per year throughout the U.S-they are not only hazardous to bus passengers, but also to others with whom buses share the roadway. The most commonly seriously or fatally injured victims in busing accidents are pedestrians and occupants in passenger cars that are struck in a bus collision. The sheer size and weight of a bus means a bus is less responsive and harder to stop quickly in an emergency. Busing accidents result in a disproportionate number of catastrophic injuries and fatalities to pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists and occupants of passenger cars because of the increased force of impact.

You’ve already dealt with enough injustice; don’t let the wrong lawyer victimize you further. Choose the firm that truly cares–choose Montlick. No matter where you are located, our bus accident lawyers are ready to hear your story and forge your path forward.

Almost every party on the road or in a vehicle is at risk of suffering serious injuries in a bus accident, including:

  • City bus passengers, subway passengers
  • Children on school buses
  • Customers of charter buses and long-distance bus carriers
  • Motorcyclists
  • Pedestrians
  • Drivers of cars, trucks and SUVs and their passengers
  • Bicyclists

Passengers on buses are especially at risk in serious busing accidents because most buses have no working seat belts, air bags or other fundamental safety equipment that are standard in most motor vehicles. Passengers are particularly vulnerable in accidents where buses leave the roadway, which can result in a fatal bus rollover accident or ejection from the bus.

Most states classify buses as “common carriers” and imposes a special heightened duty of care on public and commercial entities that own and operate bus lines. A common carrier is anyone that offers transportation services to the public at-large for an established rate. Common carriers owe the public the highest duty of care and must exercise extreme caution in protecting patrons. An entity that operates a common carrier service may be liable for even a slight degree of fault because of its increased duty of care. The justification for imposing this higher duty of care is based on the fact that passengers who use busing services have no choice but to entrust their safety to the entity that has exclusive control over bus maintenance and driver training and supervision.

A common carrier is expected to exercise vigilance in the operation, inspection and maintenance of its buses as part of its high duty of care as a common carrier. An entity that owns and operates buses has an obligation to carefully train and supervise its bus drivers and to maintain its buses in safe operating condition. Bus drivers must be provided with adequate training and are required to comply with appropriate traffic and safety laws and regulations, including special regulations that apply to common carriers. A common carrier cannot transfer, delegate or assign its special duty of care to any other entity. Even minimal fault on the part of a bus driver or busing company may be a basis for liability if a passenger is harmed, even if the injury was caused in part by another party.

Bus accidents pose a number of unique challenges that makes it important that you have an experienced bus accident attorney. Whether a private company or a government entity runs the bus line, they will typically have more financial resources to pay for experts and defend against a lawsuit than an ordinary driver. The company or public entity that operates the bus line will typically initiate an investigation of the accident and begin devising a litigation defense strategy while victims and their families are still recovering and/or grieving.

Another obstacle facing a bus accident victim is that many government entities are protected to some degree by “sovereign immunity”. Sovereign immunity limits the extent to which public entities can be sued and required to pay for injuries to passengers. While most government entities like the state of Georgia have enacted laws that waive or refine this immunity and permit claims for injuries, strict procedures and shortened time limits typically apply. The experienced a busing accident attorneys at Montlick can help you navigate the complex matrix of laws, regulations and procedures that apply to bus accident claims.

It is also important to note that legal time deadlines, or statutes of limitations apply to all legal matters, which means that you must file your claim within the required period of time or your right to recover will be barred forever. When a government entity is involved this time period can be as short as 6 months, so it is extremely important to consult with a Bus Accident Lawyer as soon as possible to determine the applicable legal time deadlines and to make sure you take all needed actions in a timely fashion.

Who Is Usually Responsible for a Busing Accident?

There are a broad range of potential parties who may be responsible for injuries caused in a busing accident. Sometimes multiple parties may all share liability for the injuries of a busing accident victim, so it is important to identify all potential responsible parties. Montlick will identify all parties who may be liable for your injuries, which may include but not be limited to the following:

  • Private Bus Company: A private company that operates a charter bus, tour bus or long distance bus service may be liable for a collision caused by poorly trained or supervised drivers or inadequate maintenance of a bus.
  • Public Entities: Many busing entities are operated by public entities like MARTA or a school district. Depending on the specifics of the case, a bus accident victim may be able to pursue a claim against a public entity for injuries caused by negligent operation or maintenance of a bus provided the injury victim complies with the appropriate procedures.
  • Bus Maintenance Contractor: If a bus company has a maintenance contract with an independent maintenance company, the maintenance company may be responsible for damages caused by their failure to properly repair or maintain a bus.
  • Bus Driver: If a bus driver operates a bus under the influence of alcohol, violates traffic laws or engages in other unsafe driving practices, the bus driver may be liable for injuries caused by the driver’s unsafe driving practices. However, the driver’s employer will typically have more resources from which to pay for a bus accident victim’s injuries and other damages.
  • Other Drivers: A busing accident often is caused by the driver of another vehicle. If another driver causes the accident, including driving under the influence of alcohol, driving while distracted or otherwise engaging in negligent driver practices, the other driver may be liable for your injuries.
