DART and SEPTA accidents in Delaware
Responsible parties are expected to maintain every component of the mass transit system. Mass transit accidents can be caused by an operator’s negligence, including speeding, electronic device use, fatigue, and substance abuse, just to name a few. Catastrophic collisions, train derailments, passenger injuries caused by closing doors and sudden stops are just some of the incidents that can be caused by a negligent operator.
Mass transit accidents are not saved solely for those injured in moving vehicles. They can involve a range of different incidents in and around the station. It is important for the actors responsible for maintaining stations and waiting areas to regularly monitor them for potential hazards that can cause serious harm to patrons. Serious injuries have been caused by negligence involving waiting areas, stations, elevators and escalators, and more. If a person can prove that a hazard was left unattended and the problem was known or should have reasonably been known and it caused serious injury, the victim could be entitled to compensation.
If you are the victim of a DART or SEPTA accident, you may be entitled to compensation. You can bring a case for lost wages, medical bills, future lost earnings, loss of consortium emotional stress, and pain and suffering. An important note is that one’s right to take legal against a government agency is limited, sometimes barred altogether. That said, with mass transit accidents, multiple parties can be involved. Conducting a thorough investigation is important.
