Pennsylvania Law and the Political Subdivision Tort Claims Act
We are an experienced and trial-tested law firm. Our personal injury lawyers have a comprehensive understanding of the Political Subdivision Tort Claims Act and how it applies to accidents such as:
- Public bus accidents
- Commuter train accidents
- Subway accidents
- Taxicab accidents
- Shuttle van accidents
- Railroad accidents
- SEPTA rail and bus accidents
When an accident involving one of these mass transit vehicles occurs, the company or public authority responsible for its operation will usually hand out claim cards at the scene. It is important that you make certain to get one of these cards before leaving the scene and that you fill it out and return it as soon as possible.
Hiring your own attorney right away can also help.
Obtaining a claim card and talking with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible after your accident can mean the difference between securing the compensation you deserve and getting nothing. In some mass transit accidents, only a certain amount of money can be paid out. If you file a claim too late, you may get nothing. Talk with a public transportation accident attorney right away.
