Commuters assume that trains or other modes of transportation provided by SEPTA or other large transportation companies are safe and reliable, but sometimes the unexpected incident occurs. Train accidents may bring a range of injuries and potential fatalities depending on the speed at which the train is traveling, and if a derailment or another incident caused one train to crash into another. Some incidents may originate from a train operator’s error or poor maintenance of the train.
