SEPTA Injury Lawsuits for a Bus, Train, or Trolley Accident in PA
Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority (SEPTA) is one of the most popular methods of transportation for people in Philadelphia. Overall, SEPTA is one of the safest methods of getting from here to there for Pennsylvania residents. Thousands of people rely on SEPTA buses, trains, and trolleys to get them to their destinations on a daily basis. We put our trust in their drivers and maintenance crews for the buses, trains, and subways within their transportation network, never thinking we might need a SEPTA accident lawyer to protect our rights. The reality is, numerous bus accidents and train accidents happen every year, and have caused people to sustain life-threatening personal injuries.
It is more common than you might think for personal injury victims to file SEPTA lawsuits to recover damages for brain injuries, burn injuries, head injuries and even severe spinal cord injuries! Injuries such as these are considered very serious, because they can become even more problematic over time, and require on-going medical attention. These cases can change a person’s quality of life for the worse.
