Bus and Train Accidents
Accidents such as SEPTA bus, train and trolley accidents each carry their own unique insurance issues and characteristics. For instance, if you have been involved in a SEPTA trolley accident, SEPTA will not pay your first party medical expenses, called PIP benefits. Each system works differently, and often times multiple passengers are injured and submit claims for their injuries. This situation can lead to a delay in receiving compensation because the claims will be consolidated and only a finite amount of money is split up to compensate all injured parties, depending on the severity or seriousness of each injury.
School bus accidents and other public transportation accidents also involve similar medical payment and pain and suffering compensation situations. Additionally, Pennsylvania law provides certain exclusions which apply to public transportation carriers, and this means they may not be held liable for your injuries. With such complex issues, you need a bus, train or trolley accident attorney who knows the ins and outs of the system.
