Millions of people rely on buses everyday as their means of transportation. As a result, the potential for injury is enormous. Unfortunately, bus accidents are not uncommon. As many as 63,000 bus accidents occur every year, resulting in countless injuries and deaths.
Whether you have been injured by a bus or while riding a bus, you have rights. If you are injured as a passenger on a SEPTA bus or other commercial bus, be sure to provide your name and contact information to the bus operator before disembarking the bus. This is the only evidence you will have to show that you were an occupant of the bus at the time of the accident. There are also some differences in insurance coverage for bus accidents. Additionally, because buses are usually considered “common carriers,” special rules apply when filing claims against them.
