Attorney representation in Atlanta, Georgia since the seventies

Home >> Bus Accidents

Traffic accidents claim lives.  For survivors, an accident can cause not only physical injuries, but financial hardship as well.  An accident that happens when you are a passenger in a bus or other commercial vehicle can be a life-changing event.  Your physical and financial well-being can take a dramatic and sometimes permanent turn for the worse.  As bad as car or motorcycle accidents can be, bus accidents have the potential to be even worse.  You are not in control of the vehicle, so there is nothing you can do in the event of an emergency.  Sometimes commercial drivers are sleep deprived or impaired.  Sometimes they are not familiar with an area and can drive off the road unintentionally, even if they are not impaired.

handling evidence in a truck accident

 If you have been involved in a bus accident, how do you choose the right Atlanta personal injury attorney to represent you?  He or she should be someone with plenty of experience in representing clients in personal injury cases, an attorney that will have the knowledge and experience to obtain the  best resolution. Often, evidence from the roadway can be helpful if an accident reconstructionist can be at the scene soon after the accident.  In many cases, evidence disappears that might be helpful to your case just due to the passage of time.

 In meeting with your personal injury attorney, be sure to share the following information:

  • Date and time, location, weather conditions at the time of the accident;
  • If the bus driver or another driver was charged by the police;
  • Any witness statements from other passengers indicating if the bus driver or another person was actually at fault;
  • Medical records and bills
  • Financial records showing lost wages.

Bus accidents can be some of the most frightening roadway mishaps.

If you have been injured in a bus accident, find the best legal representation possible, as soon as you can. It can make a difference.
