Compensation for Georgia Bus Crash Injuries

By Grant Law Office on August 14, 2012

Riding a bus is typically a safe way to travel in Georgia. The size and weight of buses, however, makes them more prone to causing serious damage to other vehicles and very often when a bus crash occurs, we find that many passengers are seriously injured or even killed as a result of the traumatic injuries they suffer. Buses do not have airbags for passengers, and they rarely even have seatbelts. Therefore, bus passengers can be thrown about in the event of a collision resulting in severe injuries.

Under Georgia law, an act of negligence is sufficient to establish liability. This means that a bus driver who negligently causes an accident, and the bus company that hired the driver, are legally responsible for the injuries suffered by bus passengers. In fact, common carriers in Georgia have a statutory duty to exercise extraordinary diligence in caring for and protecting the people they transport.

This means that injured passengers can pursue compensation for their medical bills and lost wages from the bus company. In some cases, compensation may also be available for pain and suffering, the cost of rehabilitation services, lost future wages, loss of earning potential, and other related damages. Unfortunately, it is all too common for bus companies to deny valid claims in an attempt to save money. In such cases, a skilled bus accident attorney may be able to help victims obtain fair compensation for their losses.

Anyone who has suffered an injury in a Georgia bus accident has the right to pursue compensation for his or her losses.
