Travelers, commuters, and transit passengers who are injured in SEPTA accidents, may not know that they could be entitled to compensation for the incident. Passengers who were injured may needed emergency medical care, which resulted in deep financial hardships. When meeting with an attorney at Wieand Law Firm bring with you paperwork related to hospitalization, diagnostics, treatments, prescription medications, and any other out of pocket expenses related to your medical care.
The most commonly seen injuries associated with SEPTA accidents include:
- A public transit vehicle collides into another car in which passengers on board may have sustained an injury due to the impact, or indirectly from broken glass or vehicle parts.
- A train or subway abruptly departs from the tracks, causing passengers to fall, sustain broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and wounds.
- A bus suddenly stops or turns to avoid an accident, but then this causes passengers to be tossed around the cabin. SEPTA doesn’t require seat belts, so the risk for injury is even higher.
