Bus Accident Personal Injury Cases in Georgia


November 20, 2019

In Georgia and throughout the southeast, many people rely on city or county buses to get around cities, suburban areas or to go to school on a daily basis.  This means that there are several buses on the roadway at one time, making it more than likely that there will be frequent crashes involving these large buses.

Many factors contribute to a bus accident. These factors may include:

  • Driver inexperience including incomplete or ineffective bus driver training or supervision
  • Distracted driving of other motorists or the driver of the bus
  • Driver negligence which includes driving while distracted, driving while tired, driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, and traveling at an excessive rate of speed
  • Improper maintenance of a bus
  • Inclement weather such as rain, snow, ice, and heavy fog

City and county buses and school buses are large and heavy, which can cause individuals to sustain severe injuries and serious property damage should a collision occur.  There are a range of hardships and injuries a bus crash can cause, which may include the following:

  • Scarring
  • Disfigurement
  • Disability
  • Wrongful death
  • Medical expenses
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage

Common carriers, such as bus drivers or a bus company, owe a higher duty of care to the safety to the passengers on the bus in many states.  If you were injured as a result of a bus driver's negligence, you could have a claim against the bus company and/or the bus driver.  Calling a skilled personal injury attorney at the outset of your your potential case is the first step in learning about important legal rights and how to protect them.
