Philadelphia SEPTA Accident Lawyers

Serving Northeast Philadelphia, Bucks County, and Montgomery County

Millions of people in the Philadelphia area rely on public transportation, with the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) regularly providing buses, regional rails, trolleys, and subways. In most cases, SEPTA transit is a very safe means of transportation, and relatively few accidents occur. However, the sheer number of trips SEPTA operates daily makes accidents a statistical inevitability. When these accidents do happen, they often have devastating consequences.

Injuries sustained in a SEPTA Accident can result in a variety of life-altering consequences. These include:

  • Considerable Pain and Suffering
  • Incurring Significant Medical Bills
  • Lost Wages
  • Mental/Emotional Harm, Potentially Requiring Therapy
  • Permanent disabilities, in severe cases

Experienced Philadelphia SEPTA Accident Lawyer

For any of these damages, you, the injured party, need and deserve compensation to move on with your life quickly. Whether you have been injured in a SEPTA accident as a passenger/rider (or injured while boarding/exiting the SEPTA vehicle) or while operating your vehicle where SEPTA was at fault in an accident. The Philadelphia SEPTA Accident Lawyers at Velter Yurovsky Zoftis Sokolson, LLC, are here to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

SEPTA is a quasi-governmental entity and, as such, owes the highest duty of care to its passengers. However, SEPTA is also afforded some immunities to suit because of its governmental status. The Philadelphia personal injury lawyers at the law firm of Velter Yurovsky Zoftis Sokolson, LLC, have decades of experience representing victims who were injured as a result of SEPTA's negligence and fearlessly can go up against the governmental establishment to recover the best compensation possible for their clients.

One of our experienced Philadelphia SEPTA accident attorneys' resources for demonstrating negligence and causation is a video recording of the accident. SEPTA buses and trains typically come equipped with surveillance cameras. In many circumstances, this video evidence proves invaluable to our client's injury cases. However, our investigation does not end there.

Additionally, depending on the circumstances, on-site investigation and specialized experts' assistance may be implemented to prove negligence and causation. After a complete investigation, our Philadelphia SEPTA Injury Lawyers will determine the best course of action to secure our clients' maximum compensation. Employing aggressive negotiation and preparing for trial, should it prove necessary.
