Did you know that you could receive compensation for your injuries if you were injured in a SEPTA bus accident? If you were injured in a bus accident, trolley accident, and fall down accidents on SEPTA stations and properties, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
Steps To Take If Injured On A SEPTA Bus or Trolley

Time Restraint to Sue SEPTA
Under the Pennsylvania Tort Claims Act, an injured passenger, pedestrian, or another claimant must provide SEPTA with written notice of the claim. Currently, there is a six-month time limit to provide this notice. Although an injured person has up to two years to file a lawsuit against SEPTA, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has added this strict notice requirement. If you do not follow this requirement, you will not be able to bring a claim against SEPTA. Because of this, injured passengers, pedestrians, or other claimants should contact a SEPTA accident attorney as soon as possible.
