School Children Injured in Atlanta Bus Accident

By Grant Law Office on July 30, 2012 - Comments off

Several children aged 10 to 16 were injured in an Atlanta bus accident that may have resulted from debris on the roadway. According to a WSBTV news report, the bus accident occurred along Interstate 85 south of Steve Reynolds Boulevard in Gwinnett County. Officials say the church bus vehicles were traveling in a caravan when the pickup truck that was leading the caravan swerved to avoid hitting debris on the roadway. One of the buses hit the truck and the other swerved to avoid the collision. The Associated Press reports that the injuries suffered by 18 of the school children were not life threatening. Victims reportedly suffered scrapes and cuts along with injuries resulting in neck and back pain.

According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, road debris is responsible for approximately 25,000 accidents and nearly 100 deaths each year. When an accident results from a dangerous roadway condition, it must be determined who caused the hazard.

When passengers on a bus are injured, it is important that the victim, or the victim’s family, contact an experienced personal injury attorney right away. Financial compensation should be available for the victim’s medical bills and other losses. Unfortunately, many common carriers fail to live up to their legal obligation to provide the utmost level of care to their passengers, leaving the victims wondering how they will pay for their financial losses.
