Taking on public transit agencies in pursuit of justice for victims

The thought of taking on Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) or any other mass transit authority can be intimidating. Our accident attorneys aggressively champion the rights of injured accident victims to maximize the compensation you receive from negligent parties, regardless of how big or how powerful they might be. We do not back down from anyone when your well-being is at stake. Our Philadelphia injury attorneys have successfully taken on SEPTA and the corporations responsible for injuries to mass transit accident victims.

Mass transit accidents can happen at any time or place

In Philadelphia, as in many metropolitan cities across the U.S., access to several forms of mass transit to get around the city and surrounding communities is common. Attorney Michael T. van der Veen and his team are tough, hardworking Philadelphia mass transit accident injury attorneys whose superb litigation skills are more than up to the task of representing the rights of victims injured in:

  • Trolley accidents
  • Bus crashes
  • Subway and regional rail accidents
  • Train accidents
  • Ferry accidents

Don’t fall victim to transit authority settlement tactics

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, be wary of mass transit representatives offering to quickly settle your claim or pressuring you to sign away your compensation rights. Trust our attorneys to aggressively and relentlessly pursue your claim for maximum compensation. Unfortunately, however, even we cannot help you once you sign away your rights.

As your injury attorneys, we evaluate your case and the facts surrounding your accident and injuries to give you a professional assessment of the value of your claim. We never recommend any settlement that does not provide for the maximum compensation we believe we can achieve on your behalf.
