In Philadelphia, the majority of people use public transportation to get around. As a result, the likelihood of a bus accident injury is high. So, what should you do if you’ve been in a public transportation accident?
Seek Medical Attention
The public transportation staff should call the police and ambulance ASAP but if they don’t, you can take matters into your hands and do it yourself. This is important because 1) even if you don’t think you sustained serious injuries, you still want a medical professional to confirm and 2) their report will serve as proof for your claim.
If you are able to, you should take pictures, videos, and write down witness’ statements. The police will most likely record a lot of the accident but it’s always good to have your own form of proof.
If you’ve been injured in a public transportation accident, you will definitely want to consult a legal professional.
