An Experienced Team of Transit Accident Lawyers
Our attorneys have extensive experience in obtaining monetary recoveries for injuries suffered in SEPTA, NJ Transit, and other mass transit accidents. We work tirelessly to recover for pain and suffering, outstanding and future medical bills, lost wages, and other serious damages incurred as the result of another persons negligence.
We have experience in all types of accidents and injuries including, but not limited to:
- Serious accidents that occur when a SEPTA bus or train strikes, or is struck by, another vehicle
- Injuries incurred while boarding or exiting the bus, train, or other type of vehicle
- Severe collisions occurring when a NJ Transit bus or train strikes, or is struck by, another vehicle
- Pedestrians struck by a mass transit vehicle
- Bicyclists struck by a mass transit vehicle
- Motorcycle collisions with mass transit buses
- Injuries caused by malfunctioning parts of the bus, including the doors, seats, and floors
We know that, for an ordinary person, the thought of taking on a large organization, such as the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority or New Jersey Transit may be intimidating. Our attorneys, however, have spent years taking on mass transit providers such as SEPTA and NJ Transit. Year after year, we have successfully pursued and obtained sizeable settlements and awards in claims against private companies and public organizations.
