Georgia Common Carrier Injury Lawyer


Have you been injured by a bus, train, plane or truck?

“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. When someone suffers a serious injury because of the negligence of a common carrier company or operator, the company should pay damages for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other expenses.

Whether you have been injured on a plane, train, escalator or bus, Ralph Scoccimaro Law Group can help. We’ve represented thousands of people in personal injury cases, including many that involved plane crashes and truck accidents. We charge nothing for initial consultations; in fact, we do not charge a fee unless you recover compensation through a settlement or trial verdict.

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?

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:

  • Medical expenses
  • General damages
  • Household services
  • Lost wages
  • 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?

Absolutely not. If you are contacted by an company, politely decline to talk with them. 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.

Accidents on common carriers can take many forms. Some elevator accidents can result in flesh wounds and internal injuries.
