Experienced Pennsylvania Bus Accident Attorneys
The liability for bus, trolley and train accidents can fall to different organizations depending on the state. In Pennsylvania, only a bus is treated as a motor vehicle and falls under the same legislation as vehicle accidents. Trolleys and trains, on the other hand, are not treated as motor vehicles and fall under different laws and guidelines.

When a passenger is involved in a trolley accident, his or her automobile accident insurance is not utilized because a trolley is not considered a motor vehicle. This means that the passenger must pay for treatment of injuries directly with his or her medical insurance. These costs can be high out-of-pocket for victims, which is why The Brod Law Firm in Philadelphia employs auto accident attorneys that work hard to receive damages from the corporation, city or municipality that runs the trolley.
Train accidents often involve different processes and courts. If it is a local train such as SEPTA the proper jurisdiction is our state courts such as Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas. Because train companies often operate in many states and trains run nationally such as AMTRAK, Federal law may apply in some cases of train accidents. This means that the case will be tried in a Federal Court and be monitored by several Federal organizations.
