Car Accident Lawyer
The Lawyers You Need & Deserve
Chicago Bus Accident Attorneys
Bus & CTA Accidents
If you were injured in an accident involving a bus or train, you may assume that the operator will compensate you for damages such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Unfortunately, public transportation agencies have extensive resources to defend against personal injury claims and strict deadlines that can prevent you from obtaining any money.
At Trapp & Geller, our lawyers have extensive experience with representing people who have been injured in all types of motor vehicle accidents, including those involving the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA), Metra, Regional Transportation Authority (RTA), Pace, Amtrak, and other public and private transportation services. No matter how you were injured, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
Liability in Bus Accidents
To recover compensation in a personal injury case, you will have to prove that another party was negligent. Without a lawyer’s help, this can be difficult to do. Insurance companies do not pay injury claims unless they have to.
Our lawyers have the experience and resources to prove liability in all types of accidents involving buses and trains, including:
- Injuries while boarding or exiting a bus or train
- Slip-and-fall accidents on platforms or aboard buses and trains
- Buses that stop short, throwing passengers forward
- Accidents involving other vehicles
- Accidents involving pedestrians or bicyclists
- Assaults on buses or trains
Collecting & Preserving Video Evidence
Many buses and trains are equipped with video cameras, which may capture evidence that is crucial to your case. However, transit authorities usually retain this footage for only 30 days. To secure the video and other evidence that may be important to your case, it is critical to contact our attorneys as soon as possible.
