$240,000 Settlement in Philadelphia County, PA (SEPTA Bus Accident)

$240,000.00 settlement for a man who broke his elbow when fell while walking to his seat on a SEPTA bus as it was pulling off from a stop.  The defense initially argued our client “assumed the risk” of injury, and was therefor responsible for his injuries, by choosing to walk past 19 empty seats before he fell.  This settlement was a featured story in Pennsylvania Law Weekly and Verdict Search: Pennsylvania, and on Fox 29 News: Special Investigation with Jeff Cole.
