At Soloff & Zervanos, P.C., we were greatly disturbed this morning to hear about another SEPTA accident. People need to be able to trust the public transportation system. People depend on the system to get to work, to get home and to live their lives.
When the system fails and people are injured or killed as a result, it is not only a tragedy but a betrayal of the trust we place in our public systems. Accident victims deserve justice and compensation for the injuries they have suffered.
According to a news report in CBS Philly, a SEPTA train crashed just after midnight on August 22 at the 69th Street terminal in Upper Darby, injuring dozens of passengers. The train, traveling at a high rate of speed, crashed into an empty train in the terminal.
This is the second time this year that a serious SEPTA accident occurred in that same terminal in Upper Darby.
At Soloff & Zervanos, P.C., our hearts go out to the victims of this tragedy and their families. A high-speed train accident of this kind can result in serious injuries that could impact victims for the rest of their lives. The cost of medical care and the ongoing loss of quality of life that result from a train accident can be devastating.
Our concern and our hope for quick recovery go out to the victims of this unfortunate accident.
However, most victims of an accident of this kind need more than empathy and concern. They need practical help. In addition to the critical medical care, accident victims should seek out legal counsel from an experienced team of attorneys.
We have a wealth of experience handling SEPTA accidents, so we know how important it is to work with a quality legal team. These are not simple cases, and losing your case could mean not having enough money to cover your medical care. You deserve to be compensated for the damages you have suffered, so make sure you get the legal help you need.
