    The sudden nature of a motor vehicle accident makes recovering from physical injuries very challenging on top of emotional trauma and mounting medical bills as well as other financial consequences.

    What to do After a Public Mass Transit Accident

    Philadelphia has an extensive public transportation network run by the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA). The public transit service includes subways, trolleys, buses, and regional rail lines.

    While public transportation services are concentrated within Center City, there are transportation options in the surrounding areas and suburbs as well. These services are generally safe, but there are cases every year in which a public mass transit accident results in devastating injuries.

    The aftermath of a mass transit accident can be chaotic and confusing because of the number of potential victims. It is important to take notes regarding where you were sitting and what you remember and when the accident happened. Write down the bus number, the information for the drivers involved, and the insurance information of the parties responsible for the crash.

    It is also helpful to get your name on the police report and to seek out immediate medical attention. This way you will establish that you were involved in the accident and that you suffered an injury. Last but not least, it is in your best interest to speak with an experienced Philadelphia personal injury attorney.

    Our Lawyers Can Help

    It is the goal of mass transit companies and insurance corporations to make injury claims go away. They will strive to deny claims or to offer as little compensation as possible so that they can remain profitable. Victims of serious injuries often have it in their best interests to hire an attorney who will fight for their best interests.

    Victims of bus, train, and trolley accidents in Philadelphia have the legal right to pursue compensation for all of the losses they suffered in the crash. Damages that can be included in a claim include medical bills, hospitalization costs, lost wages, lost future earnings, pain and suffering, property losses, and other related damages. A skilled attorney can review the circumstances of the crash to help a victim calculate the potential value of his or her claim.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.

    I was referred to the Reiff Law Firm by a friend who had previously been a client of the firm. My friend told me that the Reiff Firm had done an incredible job handling his case and treated him like family. My friend's recommendation was spot on. I am going to miss them now that my case is over. Attorney Reiff and Attorney Toczydlowski are excellent attorneys. They really care. They got me an INCREDIBLE RESULT. Most importantly they were there for me during some extremely dark and difficult times in my life. I highly recommend the Reiff Law Firm to anyone seeking the very best legal representation for injuries they suffered in an accident.
