Understanding Bus Accidents

Bus accidents can involve different types of buses, including public transit, school, and private charter buses, each presenting unique risks and legal considerations. Here are some key aspects:

  • Types of buses: Public buses operate within cities and are subject to urban traffic conditions, while school buses carry children and adhere to specific safety protocols. Charter buses may travel longer distances and operate under different regulations.
  • Scale of accidents: Due to their size and occupancy, bus accidents can result in significant injuries and property damage, affecting passengers, pedestrians, and other road users.
  • Complexity of cases: Legal cases arising from bus accidents can be complex due to the number of potential victims and the involvement of corporate or governmental entities.

These factors contribute to the potential severity and legal complexity of bus accidents, making it essential for victims to have skilled legal representation. That’s where our firm steps in. We have extensive experience handling bus accident cases and a proven track record of achieving significant settlements and jury awards. 

Causes of Bus Accidents in Georgia

Bus accidents can occur due to several factors, each potentially complicating the aftermath for all involved. Common causes include:

  • Driver error: This includes speeding, fatigue, distraction, or poor judgment by the bus driver.
  • Mechanical failures: Breakdowns related to the bus’s engine, brakes, or other critical systems can lead to accidents.
  • Poor road conditions: Hazardous road conditions, such as potholes, inadequate signage, or unmarked construction zones, may cause accidents.
  • Weather conditions: Inclement weather, such as rain, snow, or ice, can severely impact a bus driver’s ability to operate the vehicle safely.
  • Other drivers: Negligence by other road users can force bus drivers into dangerous maneuvers or collisions.
