Atlanta Airport Shuttle Accident Causes Injuries

By Grant Law Office on June 25, 2014

Atlanta Bus AccidentSeveral people were injured in an Atlanta car accident involving a Hilton airport shuttle. According to an Associated Press news report, the shuttle accident occurred near Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Officials say the shuttle collided with two other vehicles. One of the passengers was ejected and several injured passengers were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital and South Fulton Medical Center.

Many Atlanta residents and visitors rely on airport shuttle services to get to and from Hartsfield-Jackson. Shuttle services provide convenient and economical alternatives to taxis and long-term parking. But when mistakes are made, a ride to the airport can result in serious injuries.

Shuttle buses have a high center of gravity, which makes them prone to rollover accidents. It is also common for riders to travel without safety belts and for drivers to behave in a negligent manner. For example, shuttle drivers regularly radio back and forth with other drivers, which is a form of distracted driving. Others exceed the speed limit to pick up passengers on time. When shuttle drivers are reckless, passengers can get hurt.

Injured victims of Atlanta shuttle bus accidents have the right to seek financial compensation for their losses. At-fault drivers and their employers can be held accountable for losses such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, the cost of rehabilitation services, and other related damages.

If you have been hurt in a shuttle accident, make sure you notify the authorities right away. Get your name in the police report and take down the names and numbers of everyone involved in the crash. It will also prove useful to have documentation of your injuries. Seek a complimentary legal consultation with an experienced Atlanta personal injury lawyer who will help you better understand your legal rights and options.
