Intersections along any busy street in Macon can be dangerous areas for motorists. Intersection accidents sometimes involve a driver who carelessly pulls out into oncoming traffic, causing a side-impact crash. Other times, a driver may be traveling too fast, causing the other motorist to misjudge how close the vehicle is.

Several Injured in City Bus Accident in Macon

On Thursday, July 7, 2022, a city bus collided with an SUV at the busy intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Cherry Street. According to the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office, an SUV was making a left turn from Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. onto Cherry Street when the two motorists collided. The SUV flipped then the bus landed on top of the SUV. Both drivers, as well as all 6 passengers on the bus and the passenger in the SUV, were taken to Atrium Health Navicent with non-life-threatening injuries.

Support for Victims of Intersection Accidents in Georgia

Anyone injured in an accident can quickly rack up a massive amount of medical bills. Depending on the severity of their injuries, they may also lose time from work, which could mean a loss of income. Anyone who is injured due to the actions of a negligent driver should not be responsible for paying the bills associated with that injury.

If you have been injured due to another driver’s carelessness, it’s a good idea to speak to an experienced injury attorney as quickly as possible:

There are time limits for filing a personal injury claim. In Georgia, a person typically has two years from the date of the accident to file a claim, though that time may be much shorter in some circumstances. This may seem like a long time, but the time goes by quickly. Too often people don’t call for legal help until it’s too late and then they are barred from filing a claim for their injury.

The sooner you reach out to an experienced attorney, the quicker they can start investigating your claim. It’s good to start investigating early so that evidence can be gathered and preserved, witnesses located & interviewed, and the accident scene examined.

You should speak to an injury attorney before speaking to the insurance company. Adjusters at insurance companies are very good at what they do. They will likely not share with you all the benefits that may be available to you as a result of your accident and will most likely try to get you to settle your claim for less than what it’s worth.
