Hurt in a Mass Transit Accident? Call (404) 995-3955

Mass transit accidents don't occur often, but when they do, the damages can be quite extensive and affect multiple passengers. To avoid a large payout to victims in such cases, mass transit companies often employ their plentiful resources to reduce or deny settlements. All too often they are successful because victims give up and accept much less than they deserve. Don't let this happen to you or your loved one after a mass transit accident. Reach out to a trustworthy attorney at Grant Law Office and get the compensation you need to make a full recovery. For a free, informative case review, call us today at (404) 995-3955.

Proving Liability in an Atlanta Mass Transit Accident

To establish the validity of your injury or wrongful death claim and prove liability on the part of the wrongful transit company, your attorney may collect the following pieces of evidence in a thorough investigation and, if a trial is necessitated, present them to the court:

  • Police reports
  • Photographs
  • Witness statements (e.g. passengers, employees with the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA))
  • Medical reports
  • Testimony from accident reconstruction specialists and other relevant experts
  • Weather conditions at the time of the accident
  • Material that shows the company or vehicle operator did not follow certain safety regulations

If successful, you may be awarded coverage for current and future medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, loss of earning capacity, loss of intimacy and support, and more, depending on the facts of your case. Talk to your lawyer to learn more.

Common Contributing Factors Behind Georgia Mass Transit Accidents

Today, most buses, trains and public transportation vehicles are outfitted with advanced safety features, guidance systems and other technology. Despite this, a number of mass transit accidents take place each year, usually due to operator negligence. There are other circumstances which can lead to a mass transit accident, including the following:

  • Speeding
  • Mechanical failure due to poor maintenance
  • Overcrowding
  • Improper scheduling
  • Operator fatigue or distraction
  • Lack of seatbelts
  • Inadequate lighting or luggage storage
  • Lack of adjustment to inclement weather

An attorney should be contacted as soon as possible after a MARTA accident or other mass transit accident so s/he can get started on an investigation right away. The reason why promptness matters so much is because evidence tends to fade with time, or may even be tampered with by agents working with the mass transit company.
