Bus Accidents: Seeking Justice and Compensation for the Injured

Have you or a loved one been involved in a bus accident in Georgia? If so, you understand the physical, emotional, and financial toll it can take on your life. At Hollingsworth Injury Law, we are here to help you navigate the complex legal landscape and seek the justice and compensation you deserve.

Why Bus Accidents Require Specialized Legal Representation

Bus accidents can result in devastating injuries due to the large size and weight of buses, as well as the lack of safety restraints for passengers. Whether you were a passenger on the bus, a pedestrian struck by a bus, or the occupant of another vehicle involved in a collision with a bus, our legal team has the knowledge and expertise to handle your case effectively.

Understanding Liability in Bus Accident Cases

Buses are often classified as common carriers, which have a duty to provide a higher standard of care for their passengers. Unfortunately, they do not have a duty to provide a higher standard of care for motorists and drivers at large. They do, however, have to keep detailed logs and submit to drug testing after an accident, which may be useful in the claims process. With these complex issues, you need an experienced lawyer with a history of handling bus accident cases.

Determining liability in a bus accident case can be challenging due to the involvement of multiple parties. Our legal team will conduct a thorough investigation to identify all responsible parties, which may include:

  • Bus driver: If the accident was caused by the bus driver’s negligence, such as speeding, distracted driving, or driver fatigue, they may be held accountable for the damages.
  • Bus company: The bus company can be held liable for the actions of their employees, as well as for any negligence in maintenance, hiring, or training practices.
  • Vehicle manufacturer: If a defect in the bus or its components contributed to the accident or exacerbated the injuries, the manufacturer may be held responsible.
  • Government entities: In some cases, government agencies may be liable if the accident was caused by road defects, inadequate signage, or other factors related to road maintenance and design.

If you have been injured as a passenger on a bus, or in an accident involving a bus – including school buses, MARTA/transit buses, transportation buses, shuttles, etc – you need help navigating an injury claim. Please call us directly at 678-365-3397 or email us at
