Bus Accident Lawyer in Monroe, Georgia
Types of bus accidents
SCHOOL BUS ACCIDENTS
Most of the buses you will see on the roads are school buses. Just because it is a school bus, however, does not mean the bus driver and the local entity that operates the school bus cannot be sued if they are at fault for the accident. If you are going to file a lawsuit of this kind, you need to hire someone who knows the local area, not a lawyer from out of town.
CHARTER BUS ACCIDENTS
From 2017 to 2019, Bartlett was part of a legal team that represented a dozen professional hockey players and staff members who were involved in a serious charter bus accident. The charter bus company and its insurance company initially denied they were at fault for the accident, but after Bartlett and his legal team’s hard work, they finally admitted liability. When the cases ultimately resolved, Bartlett helped recover over $2,000,000 on behalf of his clients. When charter bus accidents occur, Bartlett has the knowledge to investigate why and how the accident occurred to make sure the bus driver and bus company are held responsible.
