Bus Accidents

In Georgia a bus company owes a higher duty to passengers injured in a crash. This is because the bus is a common carrier under the law transporting people for a fee. This is true whether it is Greyhound, Trailways or a local bus system such as Marta or Cobb Transit.

Because seat belts are not required or available Georgia bus passengers can often be at greater risk of serious injury in collisions. Our Atlanta Georgia personal injury law firm has handled successful cases against companies such as Greyhound and Marta. Our verdict against Marta for Amy White resulting from an intersection collision with a bus set a record for recovery against the transportation authority in Georgia of $1,700,000.00
