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;
  • Rehabilitative medical services;   
  • Loss current and future income;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Mental distress;

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.
