Lumpkin County, GA Bus Accident Lawyer
Travel by bus continues to be a popular form of transportation. Many people rely on buses to get from point A to point B, from individuals taking the bus to get around town, to schools using a bus for field trips, to organizations using a charter bus to get to their destination of choice. Not only is taking the bus usually more cost-efficient than using a private vehicle, but they also tend to be safer than standard-size vehicles.
That being said, when bus accidents do occur, it can result in serious injury to both the passengers on the bus and the passengers in the other vehicle involved in the accident. Victims of bus accidents may suffer from minor injuries, such as scrapes, bruising, and broken bones, to much more severe injuries like paralysis, amputation, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and even death.
If you were involved in a bus accident in North Georgia, and consequently sustained some type of injury, you have the right to file lawsuit against the person responsible for the accident. An experienced North Georgia personal injury lawyer at Leibel Law can evaluate your claim and help you file an injury lawsuit.
