SEPTA Accident Lawyers in Philadelphia
The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) provides public transportation services in Philadelphia as well as Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery Counties.
These services include buses, subways, elevated train (“El”), trackless trolleys, trolleys, regional rail and paratransit vehicles. They also provide regional rail service to New Jersey and Delaware.
Injuries on SEPTA vehicles and property
Every year many passengers and patrons of SEPTA are injured as a result of SEPTA’s negligence:
- Bus, train and trolley accidents
- SEPTA property accidents
- Paratransit vehicle accidents
The operators/drivers of SEPTA’s buses, trolleys, trackless trolleys, and para-transit vehicles are subject to the same laws and rules of the road as any other driver.
In fact, under the law, SEPTA owes its passengers the highest degree of care. If they fail to exercise that care and someone is injured, they are liable.
SEPTA is also responsible to maintain its bus stations, train stations and other property in a safe condition. If you are injured on SEPTA property, you may be entitled to recover damage.
