Causes of bus accidents
At HLM, our attorneys diligently advocate for victims of bus accidents. We have the knowledge and skill to handle bus accident cases stemming from:
- Reckless driving. It is the responsibility of bus drivers to operate the vehicle in an adequate and secure manner. Negligent or reckless driving can result in serious injuries.
- Driving under the influence. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs places passengers and others on the roadway in danger. This includes certain prescription and over-the-counter medications that can impair the operator.
- Defective bus equipment. As with any vehicle, there is always the possibility of design and manufacturing defects that can cause accidents and injuries.
- Improper bus maintenance. Bus owners and managers have a duty to maintain their vehicles in a safe manner. Failure to meet this duty can lead to injury.
Our knowledgeable Georgia bus accident lawyers successfully handle a variety of bus accident cases. We have the resources to conduct comprehensive investigations and secure credible assistance from engineers, industry experts, and medical professionals.
Holding all parties accountable for your bus accident injuries
Depending on the circumstances of the accident and the ownership of the bus, numerous parties may hold some level of liability for bus injuries. Our skilled Atlanta bus accident attorneys know how to fully investigate the incident to identify all responsible parties. Some possibilities include:
- The bus owner. The bus owner is responsible for keeping the bus in adequate working order.
- The management company. If a third party manages the bus, the company also holds a duty to maintain its mechanical safety.
- Bus equipment manufacturers. Each part of the bus works together to ensure its proper working order. Any defects in the design or manufacturing of a part can result in liability.
- Government entities. If the bus operates as part of a public transit system, the local or state government may bare some liability for resulting injuries. These cases can prove particularly challenging, due to the extensive legalities of suing a government entity.
After a bus accident, our lawyers have successfully handled claims against the responsible parties. We navigate the legal process, so you can focus on healing your injuries.
