Rapid Transit Accident Attorneys
If you or a loved one was hurt while riding a train, waiting on a platform or waiting inside an ‘L’ station, it is crucial that you consult with a skilled attorney. Many personal injury accidents carry a certain statute of limitations, meaning that specific steps must be accomplished within a strict time frame. We can guide you through this process.
Chicago mass transit accidents can be caused by numerous factors, including:
- Poorly lit stations
- Railcar derailment
- Falls from a platform
- Collision with another train
- Speeding or reckless operation
- Mechanical failure
- Conductor negligence
- Poorly maintained tracks
- Defective safety equipment
