School Bus Accidents in Georgia
School bus accidents do not happen as commonly as other accidents on our roads. This is due to the fact that school bus drivers are supposed to be some of the safest drivers on our roadways, protecting children from harm. In just one recent year, it was reported that approximately 302 students or drivers were either injured or killed in school bus accidents. Being hurt in a bus accident can turn your life upside-down in the blink of an eye. If you have sustained injuries in one of these accidents, you should speak with an attorney that you can trust.
The aftermath of a bus accident can be a scary and daunting time in your life. Buses are known as common carriers. This means that they are expected to take passengers from one place to another, sometimes for a fee. In the case of school buses, a driver is supposed to get students from one place to another without harm. If you or a child have been injured in a school bus accident, you will have to prove that several aspects were present to be successful in your claim. These include the following:
- The driver owed a duty of care
- The driver breached the duty of care
- The breach in duty led to your accident
- The accident led to injuries or other damages
It is important that you speak with a skilled Atlanta personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after a collision.
