Common carrier companies are responsible for the safety of their passengers. When a passenger is injured due to the negligence of the company or its operator, the company should be held liable. The victim should be compensated for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other expenses. Common carrier companies have a duty to their passengers to exercise reasonable care. When they fail to do so, they should be held accountable. Victims of common carrier accidents should not have to bear the financial burden of the company’s negligence.

Ralph Scoccimaro Law Group has experience with all types of Common Carrier injury cases. A Common Carrier is defined as a company that provides transportation services to the public. This includes but is not limited to airlines, bus companies, railroads, and maritime vessels. If you have been injured while using the services of a Common Carrier, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. The experienced personal injury attorneys at Ralph Scoccimaro Law Group can help you recover the compensation you deserve. We offer free initial consultations and do not charge a fee unless you recover compensation through a settlement or trial verdict. Contact us today to schedule your free consultation.

Georgia Common Carrier FAQs

What is considered a Common Carrier?
“Common carriers” include any commercial vehicle in the business of transporting people from one place to another. Common carriers include buses, trains, planes, subways (such as Atlanta’s MARTA system), and even escalators and elevators.


What if I think my accident was partly my fault?
There are many possible causes for an accident. Your actions and the actions of anyone else involved are compared to determine how much responsibility each party owes and then your financial damages are awarded based upon how much each party contributed to the happening of the accident. Talk to a lawyer who can expertly investigate and evaluate your case.


Do I need a Personal Injury Lawyer for my accident?
Yes, experienced personal injury lawyers know the rules and procedures associated with public transit and common carrier injuries. You want to focus on your medical recovery, and not on insurance claims. Insurance companies simply won’t take your claim seriously unless you are properly represented.


Who pays for my medical bills and lost income?
There are different insurance coverage issues involved in common carrier injury cases. An experienced lawyer knows how to fight for the best possible outcome for your case.


Can I recover even if the liable party has no insurance?
Common carriers are required by law to carry insurance in case of injuries. Contact Scoccimaro Law Group for a free case evaluation.


What kind of damages can I recover for my accident?
When you are hurt in an auto accident, you are entitled to recover damages for your injuries and whichever of the following that apply:

  • Future medical expenses
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of society and companionship


Should I talk to the Common Carrier's insurance company?

Insurance companies’ claims adjusters are professional negotiators with extensive experience and are well trained to ask questions designed to hurt or reduce your claim. You should seek the advice of an experienced personal injury attorney, who can determine the best way to proceed.
