When attorney Marsh handles a bus accident case…
Your lawyer will always be Troy Marsh. Even if Mr. Marsh associates another lawyer because of her/his particular skill in a specific area (there is no additional cost to you), Mr. Marsh will still be your lawyer, and you still talk to him.
Your questions get answered. In fact, you can expect a call at least once a week so you can get an update, ask any questions, or express any concerns. Mr. Marsh wants you to rest easy knowing a hard working attorney is looking out for you.
Your lawyer can get results. With over two decades of experience and a history of getting injury victims relief, Mr. Marsh knows what makes for a successful injury claim. This means identifying those at fault, making the insurer respond, negotiating for higher awards, and if necessary preparing the strongest possible case for trial.

While a bus crash/collision can be the fault of the bus driver, it also can be the responsibility of someone or something else.
The bus company, school or school district may be at fault for lack of maintenance.
The tire company may be held liable for defective tires.
Another motorist could be held responsible after crashing into the bus.
It can feel like an uphill battle. But an in-depth investigation from a lawyer with specific insight and experience handling bus accidents can provide a clear path. Attorney Marsh will collect the evidence, reconstruct the accident, examine the bus driver’s history, review the company or school records, and clearly establish who is financially liable.
As a parent, your children are the most precious things in the world. When they’re school-aged, you put them on a bus five days each week and entrust the bus driver and the school district to keep them safe and get them home at the end of the day. When a school bus is involved in a crash with another vehicle, that can be a horrifying experience for a parent.
Getting a call from the school or a hospital saying that your child has been injured can cause tremendous worry and anxiety, and probably some anger that your child was hurt because of someone else’s negligence.
It’s not uncommon for children’s school bus-related injuries to be caused by other drivers. In Georgia, drivers are required to stop when a school bus stops to let students on or off. Numerous children are hurt each year when drivers fail to stop or try to pass a school bus while children are crossing the street to get on the bus or after exiting the bus.
When a crash involves another vehicle hitting the bus, injuries can be serious since many school buses are not required to have seat belts. School bus crashes/collisions also can involve injuries to numerous students, making lawsuits seeking compensation somewhat complicated.
If your child was injured in a crash/collision in which another motor vehicle hit a school bus, you may be able to recover compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
Some of the losses you can recover financial compensation for include:
Sometimes a child is injured because the bus driver wasn’t paying proper attention or wasn’t properly trained. Children can be hurt when a bus driver hits an object, another vehicle, or the bus moves while children are getting on or off.
When the school bus driver is at fault, you may be able to recover compensation from the school district, However, recovering damages from a school district, which is a government entity, can be a long and challenging process that may require a lawsuit.
An insurance adjuster or school district representative may contact you soon after the crash offering a quick settlement. Be wary of low-ball offers because they are meant to resolve your case before you can consult a lawyer and they rarely cover all your damages.
By working with a lawyer like Troy Marsh, you can show them that you’re treating your case seriously and so should they. This often ends with them coming to the negotiation table and higher settlement offers.
Choosing to hire an experienced trial lawyer has the added benefit of preparing your claim for court. While most claims get resolved with a settlement, filing a bus accident lawsuit protects you from the statute of limitations and grants you access to otherwise unavailable evidence through the discovery phase.
