Atlanta, Georgia Bus Accident Litigation and Trial Lawyers
If you have been injured in an accident involving a bus or other mass transit vehicle, it is important that you contact an attorney who knows how to deal with the insurance company. As is the case with accidents involving trucks, accidents involving buses can cause serious and life-altering injuries. In many instances, bus drivers take their job very seriously, as they are professionals, and their job is their livelihood. However, as is the case with almost any profession, there are bus drivers that are unsafe. Furthermore, there are companies that implement risky policies in order to increase profit or efficiency. Sometimes these same companies cut corners in order to save money and hire drivers who should never be behind the wheel of a commercial vehicle. Under these circumstances, it is more likely that an accident will be the end result.
At Austin & Sparks, we will use our decades of experience to fully review any injuries you sustained in an accident with bus, and then maximize the value of your recovery – whether it be through settlement or trial. Not only do we look at the accident itself, but also, we thoroughly examine a driver’s history, the safety practices of the company, and whether the company did what it needed to before hiring a driver. In many instances, both the company and its bus driver can be held accountable for an accident caused by its driver. That is why it is critical that you hire a lawyer who has dealt with commercial vehicle accidents.
