Bus & Train Accidents

When SEPTA, NJ Transit, or Other Mass Transit Falls Down on the Job: Get the Right Personal Injury Lawyer to Recover Your Losses from a Bus or Train Accident

It is all over the news when a bus, train or trolley accident happens.

Though public transportation is usually safe and reliable, accidents still happen. In November 2012, 10 people were injured in a SEPTA bus crash in Olney, Pennsylvania, involving several vehicles.*

It can happen when a train or trolley comes off the tracks. Or when a bus hits someone on a bike or on foot. Or makes a sharp turn and knocks a passenger to the side of the bus. Sometimes a bus rear-ends or side-swipes a car, or hits a car while pulling out from the curb.

You Do Not Have to Go Through This Alone

Whatever the cause, if you or a loved one has been injured in an accident involving a mass transit bus, train or trolley, you are dealing with enough shock—injuries and lost income, medical expenses, maybe a disability.

You do not need to think about complex legal issues in addition to all that. But in order to recover your losses, you may need to sue the driver, the city or the company that owns the vehicle. That is a big job, so don’t go it alone. Let a skilled and seasoned personal injury lawyer work on your behalf.
