Bus Accidents in Atlanta, GA

Atlanta is the largest metropolitan area in Georgia — with an extensive public transportation system to match. Thousands of people ride buses around the city every day, enjoying this safe, effective, and inexpensive way to travel.

Unfortunately, bus travel does not come without its risks. Even though bus drivers have more training than the average licensed driver, bus accidents still happen throughout the state. If you or a loved one has been injured in a bus accident, contact Seay/Felton LLC Trial Lawyers immediately to discover your legal options.

Why You Need a Bus Accident Lawyer in Atlanta, GA

Who will pay your medical bills after you suffer an injury while riding a bus? Since you weren’t driving at the time of the accident, your car insurance, if you have any, won’t pay those bills. This means that the insurance company of either the bus owner or the other driver involved in the accident will need to cover these expenses.

Determining which party is responsible is an endeavor fraught with difficulties. Both insurance companies have a financial reason to blame the other party. And with so many witnesses to choose from, they can both probably find witnesses that support the narrative they prefer.

This leaves you in a situation where each insurance company is determined to deny your claim — which often requires filing a lawsuit to get the compensation you deserve. 

You need a trusted advocate who can successfully navigate this complicated legal landscape.

Bus Accident Attorneys Handle Insurance Companies While You Recover

Most people think they are required to file an insurance claim as soon as possible. But you have the right to consult an attorney before filing an insurance claim, and your attorney can file the claim on your behalf.

When you contact our law firm, we move quickly because we know speed is of the essence. Every day that goes by makes it a little harder to get you the compensation you deserve.

Before we even reach out to the insurance company, our attorneys will thoroughly investigate your case. We may talk to witnesses, look for video evidence, visit the scene of the accident, and check the driving records of everyone involved. Once available, we may obtain a copy of the police report.

We collect this evidence before approaching the insurance company to ensure we have an ironclad case proving its client was responsible for the injuries you suffered. 

Georgia uses modified contributory negligence rules to determine fault. And the more evidence we have proving the other party was at fault, the more money you are eligible to receive.

When you are recovering from a catastrophic injury, you deserve to focus on your health and not on collecting evidence. Our attorneys let you dedicate your energy toward your recovery without having to worry about the two-year time limit to take legal action.

Another key part of preparing your case is speaking with medical experts and securing copies of all of your medical bills and lost wages. Our goal during this stage is to determine how much you have already lost and accurately estimate how much you will lose in the future.

Once we are confident we have accurately assessed your case, we are ready to negotiate a settlement. Typically, this means filing a lawsuit to show the insurance company that we are serious. When combined with the evidence we collected, this action often brings the company to the negotiating table and results in a fair settlement.

However, if the insurance company refuses to negotiate, our attorneys are always ready to go to court. And if your case goes to trial, you can feel confident that you are represented by experienced trial attorneys who know their way around a Georgia courtroom.
