Public Transportation Accident Lawyers

Representing the Victims of Illinois Motor Vehicle Accidents

Chicago and its surrounding suburbs boast many forms of public transportation, including airports, CTA and Pace buses, CTA El train lines, and Metra train lines, as well as private transit companies. Although the number of accidents involving public transit is much lower than auto accidents and trucking accidents, the number of injuries and deaths caused by a public transportation accident can be significant, given the number of people involved in any one collision.

If you have been injured in a public transportation accident, do not hesitate to contact the Chicago public transit accident attorneys at Cogan & Power at (312) 477-2500 to schedule a free consultation.

Because we are a small firm that values collaboration, we are able to draw on the various skills and proficiencies of each of our Chicago injury attorneys for each case. Each client has a one-on-one, personal relationship with the partner handling his or her case, but also benefits from the behind-the scenes contribution of our litigation team, including two former defense lawyers, a nationally recognized trucking attorney, and a former surgical nurse whose career spans the courtroom and the operating room. Clients appreciate our collaborative approach to legal representation, because it allows us to provide small-firm personal attention with big-firm legal experience.

Bus Accidents

According to the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA), 1,781 CTA buses operate over 140 routes and run approximately 19,709 trips a day throughout Chicago. In the surrounding suburbs, the PACE bus system serves 284 municipalities and covers 3,446 square miles, providing public transportation via nearly 200 fixed bus routes. On average, the CTA alone is involved in one bus accident per day.

Bus accidents can happen for a number of reasons, such as:

  • Inattentive or negligent motorists
  • Defective bus parts
  • Road hazards
  • Inadequate maintenance
  • Poor driver training
  • Inattentive or inexperienced driving

Train Accidents

Chicago boasts an expansive public transportation train system that allows commuters and residents to get around Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. According to the CTA, its trains make about 2,145 trips each day and serve 143 stations. For commuters in the surrounding suburbs, Metra transports approximately 301,200 riders each weekday and approximately 121,800 riders on weekend days.

Train accidents often result in devastating injuries and even deaths, due to the sheer size of the trains and the speeds at which they travel. Train accidents can occur for a number of reasons, including:
