most common types
of bus accidents

Buses provide a method of transportation for many people on their daily commutes. The most common accidents that occur with buses are:

The Department of Transportation issued an urgent warning against the use of 15 passenger vans started that they had a much higher likelihood of rolling over. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration further pressed the issue by reminding drivers that the risk of a rollover is dramatically increased if there are ten or more people in the van.

The auto industry still manufactures these vans despite all the warnings from the U.S. government. If you have been injured by one of these vans call us today! You should never have to pay for medical expenses or anything else if you have been injured in a 15 passenger van crash. It is the manufacturers’ fault and they should pay for building such dangerous vehicles.

Public buses do not have seat belts or other safety features. This can make them incredibly dangerous especially in hazardous weather. They can cause serious and life-threatening injuries or even worse can be fatal.

Even worse, MARTA is controlled by a government entity. This can make claims extremely difficult to figure out and understand. An experienced McDonald & Cody bus accident trial attorney can properly establish what you need to do to receive compensation.

As already stated, millions of children are transported on yellow buses every single year. Sadly 12,000 children are injured each year in school bus accidents. While most of these injuries are minor in nature, some are life-altering or even fatal to some children.

If you or your child has been injured in a school bus accident, with the help of our experienced trial attorneys, you can receive monetary damages for your pain and suffering as well as any lost wages you may have had.

Hotels, airports, or other large establishments use shuttle buses to transport large numbers of people normally. While these shuttle buses are extremely convenient and make traveling easier, they do come with their risks.

Due to the size and shape of a shuttle bus, they are much more likely to be involved in an accident, than other types of buses. The awkward shape of the shuttle bus as well as frequent stopping often create blind spots on the road and thus lead to accidents.

FYI - The Statute of Limitations for Bus Accidents

You have a certain amount of time to file a claim, but you may forfeit your opportunity if you wait too long. In addition, you have an obligation to report claims to insurance carriers. Still, there are usually multiple carriers in these cases, all wanting to close the case as quickly and cheaply as possible.

OCGA §9-3-33 generally gives Atlanta bus accident victims two years to file their claims. You should not take too long to get started. Instead, begin building your case immediately while the evidence and accident are still fresh. When people wait until the last minute to file a claim, they weaken their chances of getting a fair settlement.
