Types of Public Transportation Accidents

Our skilled Atlanta personal injury lawyers have successfully managed a variety of public transportation accident injury cases, including:

Bus Accidents

Bus accidents, whether on a charter, school, or city bus, may occur due to various factors, such as if a driver behaves negligently or the bus was not properly maintained. When a bus accident occurs, passengers may sustain serious injuries. Our skilled lawyers will seek to hold all negligent parties accountable for their negligence.

Subway and Light Rail Accidents

Subways and light rail accidents may lead to severe injuries, especially when involving a derailment or collision, as this can produce numerous injury victims. These types of accidents may be caused by driver errors, issues with the train, or rail defects. When a subway or light rail accident occurs, our attorneys will thoroughly investigate the accident to identify the cause and hold all liable parties accountable.

Aircraft Accidents

Accidents involving an airplane or helicopter can be caused by a variety of factors, such as an aircraft-component defect or negligence. Successful aviation accident claims often require extensive investigation and excellent trial techniques. We have the experience and legal knowledge to provide our clients with both of these components for success.

Watercraft Accidents

As Georgia is home to multiple bodies of water that both residents and tourists enjoy year-round, it is important that all watercraft rides remain safe.

Help Negotiating with Insurance Carriers

To quickly resolve matters following an accident, insurance companies will offer you less than you deserve in compensation for your injuries. Many victims feel pressured to accept these offers as the bills begin to pile up, but that is rarely a good idea. The insurance company is looking to protect its bottom line; and will offer injured victims less than they deserve. An experienced personal injury attorney understands how to negotiate with the insurance company and can look out for your best interests by getting you the compensation you deserve after an injury. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, it is important to avoid negotiating or providing recorded statements to the insurance company without first seeking help from a qualified personal injury attorney.
