Preventable SEPTA Regional Rail Accidents

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) operates transit services—including commuter rail services and light rail services—across five counties in the greater Philadelphia metropolitan area. Unfortunately, serious concerns have long been raised about the safety of SEPTA’s transit lines. Most SEPTA accidents are preventable. Yet, when proper safety precautions are not taken, very serious accidents can happen—potentially including railroad crossing collisions, pedestrian collisions, and derailments. When railroad passengers, motorists, pedestrians, or other members of the public are injured as a result of SEPTA’s negligence, accountability is required.

Financial Compensation for Rail Accident Victims

Railroad accident victims need financial support to cover their medical costs and other damages. Our accident lawyers fight aggressively to help injured victims. Depending on the nature of your case, recovery may be available for:

  • Emergency room care;
  • Medical bills and related expenses;

Train crash cases are unique and complex with many different potential pitfalls, such as federal preemption. Anytime I get hired or even get a call from a train crash victim, my very first call is to Nathan’s firm. Nathan’s knowledge and experience in handling and trying cases against these litigation savvy railroad companies gives me the confidence to know that the clients and cases I refer to him are getting the best of the best.

James PerrinLubbock, Texas

I have had the opportunity to work as co-counsel with Nathan on several railroad crossing accidents cases. In each case, Nathan always possessed an incredible knowledge of the law and the facts, possessed a great talent for aggressive - strategic legal planning and trial tactics while, at the same time, displaying great skill as an effective negotiator. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

Nathan Karlin has my strongest endorsement in the field of railroad crossing cases and personal injury law. I had the pleasure of working with Nathan in a complex railroad personal injury case. I was impressed by Nathan’s knowledge, his work ethic, and his dedication to the client. I look forward to working with Nathan on future injury matters. I am also aware firsthand that he has obtained excellent trial and settlement results in numerous cases involving members of the public harmed by railroad companies.

Joseph M. MillerMandeville, Louisiana

Nathan is a warrior fighting the railroads. As a fellow personal injury lawyer, I have constantly been impressed with his depth of knowledge and his capabilities from case to case. I’d take him into battle with me any day against the biggest railroads and insurance companies on the planet.

Jon C. ClarkAustin, Texas

Bob Pottroff has fought for the victims of the railroads’ callous disregard for safety more than any other attorney that I know. I should know because I am currently Chair-elect of the Railroad Section of ATLA.

Mr. Pottroff has shaken the rail industry to its very roots. Settlements are now more common as a result of the way he has exposed the industry’s wrongdoing.

Mike EasleyArkansas

Bob Pottroff’s work in railroad safety law is unmatched and he has been the source of great advice and phenomenal creativity.
