CTA / Metra / Mass Transit Accidents
Illinois Mass Transit Accident Lawyers
Buses, trains, airplanes and other forms of mass transportation are held to a high standard of care. To protect passengers, they must meet strict safety and licensing regulations. Unfortunately, bus accidents, train accidents and other forms of mass transit accidents still occur regularly in Chicago and throughout the country, and they almost always result in serious injuries and fatalities.
These accidents require immediate attention by experienced legal counsel. At Anesi Ozmon, we will quickly begin an investigation into the accident to determine its cause and establish liability. Our attorneys have extensive experience representing auto accident victims, including claims involving airlines, railroads and bus companies. Several mass transit case examples are included below:
- $600,000 settlement for a man injured when struck by the transit authority’s PACE bus.
- $495,000 settlement for a man who sustained a fractured leg when he was struck by a taxicab.
- $417,000 verdict for a woman who sustained a shoulder injury when the transit authority bus she was riding stopped too sharply and caused her to lose her balance and fall; the offer prior to the jury trial was only $100,000.
Chicago CTA and Metra Accident Attorneys
Commercial and public trains such as the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA), the Regional Transit Authority (RTA), Metra and Amtrak have their own legal counsel and investigators whose goal is to minimize the liability of the train following an accident. This is why it is so important that the people who have been hurt in train accidents hire representation as soon as possible.
