Chicago Metra Accident Attorneys
Metra is a commuter train that serves Chicago and surrounding areas. Millions of people each year rely on the professionalism, punctuality and safety of the trains and the Metra operators. It is not uncommon, however, for accidents to occur. If this happens, contact our experienced Chicago Metra accident lawyers.
At Woodruff Johnson & Palermo, we have extensive experience representing clients in a broad range of personal injury lawsuits. From the straightforward to the complex, we approach every case with an attention to detail and thorough preparation that our clients deserve. If you were on a Metra train that struck an object on the tracks, derailed or came to a sudden, jarring stop, chances are that you suffered a significant injury. These are fast-moving vehicles that lack a great deal of protective features. Depending on your injuries and the circumstances surrounding your accident, you might be entitled to recover monetary compensation. Contact our office to learn more about your options.
