Types of Bus Driver Negligence in Georgia

Although MARTA bus drivers have a responsibility to show “extraordinary care” in performing their duties, passengers can suffer injuries due to negligent actions. Claiming compensation when you have an accident on a bus that results in injury is a complex process. An experienced personal injury lawyer can assess your circumstances and offer representation.

Excessive Speed

A bus driving at excessive speeds can lead to passenger injuries. If you stumble, fall, twist a limb or bang your head because the driver was going over the speed limit, you may have a case for compensation.

Your personal injury lawyer will support you in gathering evidence and examining how the law applies in regard to filing a claim against the common carrier. At Conley Griggs Partin LLP, we invite you to engage with our team for a bus accident consultation.

Cell Phone Distracted Driving

Cell phones are often involved in accidents resulting from distracted driving. A bus driver has a responsibility for your safety, which means his or her eyes should be focused on the road. If a phone call or text caused a distraction, you may have a compensation case.

Distracted driving is illegal in Georgia. A driver who is looking at or using a cell phone prior to an accident is considered “at-fault” in any accident. If you witnessed the bus driver using a cell phone while the vehicle was in motion, share this information with your personal injury lawyer.

Bus Driver DUI

It is illegal to drive under the influence of alcohol, drugs or any other banned substance. Most bus drivers take their duty of care seriously; however, there are those exceptions that break the rules. Putting the lives of passengers at risk is a serious breach of a bus driver’s responsibility.

There are several ways in which a bus driver or the bus company may be liable for your injuries. To discuss the best legal approach for pursuing compensation, speak to an attorney at Conley Griggs Partin LLP today.

Bruce Millar The Millar Law Firm Atlanta, GA

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
