Accidents involving public transportation can present legal challenges. Liability and insurance issues are sometimes complex. Injuries are often serious in crashes and other accidents occurring on or around mass transit vehicles such as CTA buses, Metra trains, Pace buses and Amtrak trains. Recent noteworthy bus accidents in the Chicago area have included the crash of an O'Hare shuttle bus into a concrete lane barrier in August 2014, injuring 13 passengers.

If you or your loved one suffered a serious or catastrophic injury in a bus accident, a train accident or any public transportation accident, you need qualified legal counsel just as surely as you need top-notch medical treatment and rehabilitation.
