City Bus MARTA Accidents Lawsuit Injury Lawyer

Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) buses are a main source of transportation for many people in the Atlanta area. In general, buses are a safe and economical way to travel, but mistakes by drivers can occur. When riders are seriously injured while riding a MATRA city bus due to driver negligence, they may be able to pursue compensation for their injury through an auto accident injury lawsuit.

City bus organizations have a duty to provide safe transportation for their passengers. MARTA buses are considered “common carriers,” and with that designation comes a responsibility to provide excellence when transporting the general public. As professionals and as a common carrier employee, bus drivers are expected to go above and beyond when performing their duties. “Extraordinary care” is the legal term used to describe the duties of common carriers, which means any negligence that causes harm or injury to passengers may result in liability for MARTA.

Legal Options for Bus Accident Injuries

Unlike a personal auto accident, bus accidents caused by driver negligence are not as simple to receive compensation for injured passengers. MARTA is a common carrier and has a responsibility to provide safe transport, but it is also a public entity, which can limit legal options for personal injury lawsuits. It is important for passengers that sustain injuries during a negligent bus accident to have an experienced common carrier personal injury attorney on their side to look at all options for compensation for their injuries.

At Conley Griggs Partin LLP, we represent clients that have been seriously injured in a MARTA bus accident caused by negligence on the part of the bus driver. Contact our office to schedule a free consultation if you have been injured in a bus accident. We will discuss your legal options to pursue compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other damages.
