What To Do If You’ve Been In a SEPTA Accident
Report your injury to your doctor as well. Go to an emergency room for immediate medical care if necessary and tell your doctors what is physically bothering you and how you were hurt.
At the scene of a SEPTA bus, train or trolley accident the bus driver will hand out a form which you can fill out. This is utilized to identify you as a passenger. You should fill out one and give it to the driver. SEPTA uses these forms to fight fraud for people claiming they were in accidents when they actually were not. If the bus driver does not voluntarily hand out a form, you absolutely have the right to ask for one.
Write down a description of the driver, and get his or her name. Do the same with any other passengers, and get phone numbers. Write down or take a picture of the bus number, route number of the bus you were on, for instance.
