MARTA ACCIDENTS

ATLANTA BUS AND MARTA TRAIN ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

Home » Atlanta Car Accident Attorney » Atlanta Bus and MARTA Train Accident Attorney

Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) buses and trains transport thousands of people throughout the Atlanta metro area every day. It is the responsibility of bus drivers, train operators and MARTA police officers to ensure the safety of passengers and others on property under the control of this commonly used public transportation system. Atlanta bus and train accidents are uncommon, but accidents that do occur can create injuries that a far more serious than an accident involving an automobile. Buses and trains transport many people at one time and they typically do not have significant forms of protection, such as seat belts or airbags. Because protection is limited, there is a greater likelihood that serious injuries will occur in an accident.

At the W. Winston Briggs Law Firm, we represent clients in all types of train and bus accident cases, especially victims of accidents involving catastrophic injuries. Victims involved in public transportation accidents suffer different types of injuries depending on how the accident occurred. Common injuries that can result from an Atlanta bus or train accident include:

Back, spine and neck injuries
Head and brain injuries
Burns
Fractured bones
Internal injuries
Paralysis
Wrongful death
Bus and train accidents are not only a threat to those inside them, but also to pedestrians crossing the road or walking near these vehicles. The amount of weight of a commercial transportation vehicle can create a more serious impact—resulting in wrongful death or life-changing injuries.

If you have been injured in a wreck involving a MARTA bus or train or suffered an injury on MARTA property, you should seek the advice of an experienced Atlanta public transportation accident attorney from our firm who knows the law and has the ability to protect your interests.

Wrongful Death
“My husband died in a terrible trucking accident, leaving me a widow and my son without a father. The trucking company (that killed my husband) initially refused to accept responsibility for my husband’s death. I hired Winston Briggs and turned everything over to him. During this very difficult time, Winston took total control of the case and filed suit in federal court in Virginia.

“While cycling with a group in Roswell, I was hit by a car, resulting in emergency hospitalization for multiple injuries, two surgeries, and months of rehabilitation. The driver, who was charged with improper passing, was uncommunicative, as was his insurance company.
Cyclist Tom Erdmanczyk, Roswell, GA
I sustained injuries when I was hit by a car riding my bicycle. The driver contended I was at fault for the collision. In researching attorneys, W. Winston Briggs came highly recommended as a personal injury trial attorney. I hired Mr. Briggs and his firm took over my case.
Cyclist Bruce Fernald, Atlanta, GA
I injured myself requiring surgery when I fell at a hotel in New Orleans while on business. The insurance company for the hotel initially denied responsibility for my injury and then later offered me only a modest sum to settle the case, claiming there were multiple problems with my claim. I retained Winston Briggs to handle my claim and he did the rest.
Ed Dietzel, Atlanta, GA
I have been fortunate to find (surfing the web) W. Winston Briggs Law Firm to take over my case after almost a year of being with a “highly recommended season” attorney who was unable to serve the defendant, claiming he was “too big to be served,” here in Atlanta?
