SEPTA Injury Lawyer Philadelphia
Millions of people in the Philadelphia area rely on public transportation that SEPTA buses, regional rails, trolleys, and subways provide on a regular basis. 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 on a daily basis makes having accidents a statistical inevitability. When these accidents do occur, 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
For any of these damages, you, as the injured party, both need and deserve compensation in order to be able to move on with your life as quickly as is possible. 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 own personal vehicle where SEPTA was at fault an accident. The Philadelphia SEPTA Injury 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 their passengers. However, SEPTA is also afforded some immunities to suit due to their governmental status. The lawyers at Velter Yurovsky Zoftis Sokolson, LLC. have decades of experience representing victims who were injured due to SEPTA’s negligence and fearlessly can go up against the governmental establishment in order to recover the best compensation possible for their clients.
One of the resources our experienced Philadelphia SEPTA Injury Lawyers use to demonstrate negligence and causation is 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 clients’ cases. However, our investigation does not end there.
Additionally, depending on the circumstances, on-site investigation and/or the assistance of specialized experts may be implemented in order to prove negligence and causation. After a complete investigation, our Philadelphia SEPTA Injury Lawyers will determine the best course of action to secure the maximum compensation for our clients, employing aggressive negotiation and preparing for trial, should it prove necessary.
