Atlanta is a hustling and bustling metropolis. A lot of people call Atlanta home, and our population keeps buses and other public transportation busy. It doesn’t happen all that often, but what do you do when you are injured because the public bus you were riding is involved in a crash? Experienced Atlanta attorney Laurie Robbins knows how to navigate these types of claims. She can determine who is at fault and whether victims may be owed compensation.
In these types of accident claims, bus accidents may have been caused by:
- Careless, negligent or distracted bus drivers
- Driver inebriation/intoxication/drugged driving
- Poor or sub-standard bus company hiring practices
- Inadequate bus driver training
- Inadequate bus maintenance
- Faulty bus parts or mechanical components
All of these things are examples of negligence. If negligence played a role in the crash, then you may be eligible to pursue maximum injury compensation in a case handled by Laurie Robbins. This compensation can be critical to accident victims, who face expensive medical bills, lost income from being unable to work, and pain and suffering caused by the injury.
Accident cases involving a bus or other type of public transportation have an additional layer to them: a public agency is involved. Laurie Robbins knows what to expect from cases involving government agencies. She does not back down from negotiating for what is in her client’s best interests.
There may be other causes of bus accidents:
- Inclement weather (rain, wind, hail)
- Other motorists
- Obstructed view
- Unsafe or defective roads
It takes a knowledgeable, skilled attorney to determine the root cause and liability in a motor vehicle crash. Laurie Robbins wants to talk to you first, so she can understand your story and how the injury has impacted your life. From there, she will work tirelessly to pursue compensation on your behalf from the responsible party.
