Common SEPTA accident injuries in Philadelphia

Injuries that occur due to SEPTA accidents vary widely. In many cases, these injuries occur due to collisions between SEPTA vehicles and passenger vehicles. However, injuries can also occur while a person is on a SEPTA vehicle. Injuries that occur in collisions can include the following:

  • Spinal cord trauma with paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Broken and dislocated bones
  • Internal organ damage or internal bleeding
  • Severe lacerations or puncture wounds
  • Amputations or crush injuries

SEPTA injuries can also occur when any of their railway vehicles derail. A derailment of any type can cause severe passenger injuries.

However, it is not uncommon for us to represent clients who have sustained slip and fall accident injuries that occur due to conditions on a SEPTA vehicle. Injuries can also occur due to faulty seats or railing or some other hazardous condition. Accidents and injuries caused by SEPTA vehicles can occur in a variety of ways, and our team is standing by to help investigate these cases for our clients.

Can you file a lawsuit against SEPTA?

According to Pennsylvania’s Sovereign Immunity Act, SEPTA is generally immune from liability for injuries and damages it causes unless those injuries and damages are caused by:

  • A dangerous condition on SEPTA property
  • SEPTA’s operation of a motor vehicle

Due to the complexity of the Sovereign Immunity Act, it is strongly advised that all victims injured in a SEPTA vehicle or due to the actions of a SEPTA operator work with a skilled personal injury attorney in Philadelphia to help them with their claim.

What type of compensation is available for a SEPTA injury case?

At Solomon, Sherman & Gabay, our goal is to recover full compensation for our clients. This can include the following:

  • Complete coverage of medical bills caused by the incident
  • Lost income if a victim cannot work while they recover
  • Any household out-of-pocket expenses a victim incurs
  • Pain and suffering damages
  • Loss of enjoyment of life damages
