Injured in a Bus Accident? You Focus On Recovering, We'll Fight for Compensation

Atlanta Bus Accident Lawyers

Bus accidents in Georgia and throughout the nation are on the rise, as are injuries and fatalities that occur from Atlanta bus accidents. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration indicates that thousands of people are injured in bus accidents each year throughout the U.S., which includes school bus accidents, tour bus accidents, Georgia's public transportation bus accidents, privately charted bus accidents, and more.

Who is liable for a Georgia bus accident?

While a bus accident can be the fault of the bus driver due to aggressive driving or speeding, it also can be the responsibility of someone or something else. For example, the bus company, school or school district may be at fault for lack of maintenance, the tire company may be held liable for defective tires, another motorist could be held responsible after crashing into the bus, or a truck driver may be liable for oil spills on the road.

Bus crashes can occur for a wide variety of reasons, including:

  • Bus driver negligence
  • Drowsy driving
  • Use of prescription pills, cough medicine, or other drugs and medications
  • Failure to stop at a stop sign or traffic light
  • Failure to yield
  • Improper maintenance
  • Defective equipment or tires
  • Poor weather conditions
  • Road hazards or dangerous roadways

What Should I Do if My Child is Hurt in a School Bus Accident?

Georgia drivers need to know the laws regarding school bus stops. The Atlanta personal injury lawyers at Kalka & Baer LLC give drivers these two reminders:

  • All traffic must stop when a school bus stops to pick up or drop off passengers, except if there is a divided highway with a median separation where only the traffic following the bus must stop
  • If there is a violation of meeting or overtaking school bus when it makes a stop, it is the duty of the bus driver to report such violation

School buses are making frequent stops in and outside of neighborhoods, so drivers should be extra cautious when driving around school buses carrying children. If your child has been injured from a car accident involving a school bus, contact Kalka & Baer LLC for a free consultation.
