Injury accidents can happen anywhere, especially when large vehicles are involved. Anyone who has spent time driving in the Northern Atlanta commuter communities knows that traffic can spike up quickly here and lead to trouble in a hurry if something goes wrong, or if a driver makes an error. Just such a situation played out recently in Cobb county.
While the details remain unclear, six people were injured in an accident at an intersection when a collision occurred between a car and a school bus. The cause of the collision is still under investigation, but there were victims in both vehicles, not only the car. According to reports, two students on the bus were injured, while four individuals in the car were also injured. considering the difference in size between the bus and the car, it’s fortunate that more people were not hurt and that there were no fatalities.
Situations like this can lead to complicated litigation, and must be taken seriously. If you or someone you love experience a similar situation, you might face a difficult time receiving fair compensation. Many factors may contribute to this — not only is one of the vehicles owned by a school, there were individuals in both vehicles who were injured, complicating the matter.
If you are involved in an accident, it is vital to get the help of an experienced attorney who understands the nuances of the law when fighting for your fair treatment. With proper legal counsel, your rights will remain protected while you fight for justice and appropriate compensation for your losses.
