Every day thousands of people use MARTA to get around Atlanta for work, school, and play. It is a vital part of our city’s infrastructure. When an accident interferes with the system, it can cause damage all over the city and cause injuries to people on board.
12 people were injured in August after a crash with a MARTA bus. Another vehicle ran a stop sign and struck a bus in East Point. The accident happened at the corner of Delowe Drive and Woodbury Avenue. Of the injured, eight people were on the bus and four in the other vehicle. Their conditions are unknown.
From the news article, it appears that the other vehicle crashed into the MARTA bus, but sometimes MARTA vehicles and other public transit vehicles have been at fault. Getting compensation from these entities may be tricky depending on the circumstances. Insurance companies may try to force a settlement quickly before the full damages are known.
