Pursuing Compensation on Behalf of Train Accident Victims
Chicago is a metro area that is serviced not only by the L, but also trains that run in and out of the city, carrying passengers to and from their destinations. However, much like any other types of motor vehicles, accidents involving the L, the Metra and other trains can leave individuals with serious, permanent and debilitating injuries.
If you have been injured in a train accident, turn to our legal team at the Law Offices of Leonard S. Becker. We are a personal injury firm that is committed to helping train injury victims seek the compensation they deserve for lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering. Our firm has handled many cases involving the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA), which operates trains in the city. We do not back down and are aggressive in our pursuit of justice on our client’s behalf. Contact us today to schedule a free initial consultation with a member of our Illinois CTA crash law firm.
Common Reasons Behind Train Accidents
There are numerous reasons for the occurrence of train accidents, including:
- Excessive train speed
- Subway platform accidents
- Train crashes
- Train doors closing on arms or legs
- Touching an electrified rail
- Improper maintenance of seats, windows or doors
- Trains striking bystanders
- Sudden stops
Texting and Driving
Unfortunately, texting and driving is not a phenomenon that is limited to drivers of cars and other motor vehicles. Many train operators throughout the country have been found texting or otherwise using cell phones and other devices while they should have been monitoring the train. This has led to devastating accidents in some cases. We are a firm that can help injured clients take action against train operators that caused an accident while texting and driving.
Train accident injuries frequently include sprains and fractures, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries and even wrongful death. Whether you suffered a catastrophic injury or less serious injury, we will aggressively seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
