Any accident can put you out of commission for an extended period, but the possibility of life-altering injuries is higher in crashes involving large SEPTA vehicles like busses, trolleys, and trains. The effects of these injuries often leave accident victims wondering how they are going to afford an attorney while they are unable to work due to their injuries.
Yes, You Can Afford an Experienced SEPTA Injury Attorney
Hiring a lawyer to protect your legal rights and help with your financial recovery is important after any SEPTA accident. Failing to work with an attorney can end up costing you more in the long run if you don’t bring a lawsuit against SEPTA within the state’s strict statute of limitations.
Your lawyer can help by:
- Handling communication with insurance adjusters to avoid common pitfalls that can interfere with receiving the full compensation you deserve
- Gathering evidence to prove your injury was caused by negligence on the part of SEPTA, the bus/trolley operator, or some other party
- Negotiating for a settlement or arguing your case in court to recover damages for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering from the injury
The good news is that the initial consultation with a SEPTA injury lawyer is entirely free. During that consultation, you have the opportunity to explain what occurred during the accident so an attorney can determine if you have a case to pursue. Retaining legal counsel after that consultation also won’t break the bank, since personal injury attorneys operate on a contingency fee basis.
Rather than requiring any up-front costs, a qualified SEPTA accident attorney will take their fee as a percentage of your potential compensation. That means if you don’t receive a settlement or win your case, you don’t have to pay anything to your attorney.
