Bus Accident Statistics in Atlanta
If you have been injured in a bus accident in Atlanta, you are not alone. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that, nationwide, over 10,000 people are injured annually in accidents involving buses.
Atlanta drivers may be especially at risk due to the number of Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) buses, commercial buses, and school buses that we see on the roads every day.
Any of these buses can potentially leave you with serious injuries in the event of an accident. You may even lose a family member in an especially severe wreck. A wrongful death lawyer right here in Atlanta can help you if a bus driver’s negligence resulted in a death.
Take the Right Steps after a Bus Accident
Getting compensation after a bus accident is easier if you act right away. As with any motor vehicle accident, you should try to take pictures of the scene of the accident. You should also try to gather contact information from any eye-witnesses.
It is important that you seek medical care for any injuries you sustained in the accident. Official records of your medical care and the costs you incurred will make it much easier for you to get appropriate compensation with a bus accident suit.
Additionally, you can immediately improve the odds that you will be treated fairly after an accident by contacting a professional law firm. Bus accident victims that get expert legal advice are more likely to get full compensation for their injuries and other losses.

Let Us Investigate Your Accident
Our legal team has handled many bus accidents in Atlanta over the years. We know how to dig into police records and photographs of the scene to find out what really happened. We will also use our full resources to:
- Interview Witnesses
- Find Out if Bus Regulations Were Followed
- Examine Possible Weather Conditions
- Assess Your Medical Records
Our goal will be determining who caused the accident and the exact extent of your injuries, so you can get the full amount of compensation you are owed. In our experience, many bus accidents are the result of drivers that are:
- Poorly Trained
- Breaking the Law
In some cases, the busing company is at fault for accidents. Bus companies may perform improper maintenance or hire drivers that are not qualified, thereby endangering other drivers on the road.
We Will Fight for Full Compensation after a Bus Accident
Bus accidents can leave you with high medical bills and other debt. We believe that you deserve total compensation for your injuries and other losses. Note that insurance companies may try to offer you subpar agreements to protect their clients from a lawsuit. You do not just have to accept these offers.
Our legal team can fight to ensure you get damages to cover expenses for medical treatment and damage to your vehicle. Depending on your situation, you may also be entitled to compensation for:
- Pain and Suffering
- Current or Future Lost Wages
- Diminished Enjoyment of Life
We will attempt to settle your case through negotiations with the busing company and their insurance agents. If these organizations refuse to treat you fairly, we can take your suit to court. We have the legal experience to win cases for clients in your situation.
