Chicago Train Accident Attorneys

Malman Law. Premier Personal Injury Attorneys

Injury Attorney Steven J. Malman

Chicago’s Reliable Train Accident Injury Attorneys

Each year, several people suffer serious and fatal injuries in accidents involving CTA, Metra, and other trains throughout the Chicagoland area.

Providing Chicago’s residents and visitors with cheap, reasonably-efficient, and environmentally-friendly transportation alternatives, the city’s public train systems play an important role in many people’s daily lives. Crisscrossing the city from Inglewood to Manhattan and from O’Hare Airport to Union Station, the Metra system and the CTA’s “L” train connect outlying neighborhoods with transit hubs and all that the Windy City has to offer.

While providing essential services for many individuals, Chicago’s train systems are not without their risks. From derailments to collisions with cars and pedestrians, train accidents regularly cause serious damage and, in some cases, take innocent victims’ lives. Located in downtown Chicago, Malman Law’s experienced Chicago train accident attorneys provide dedicated legal representation for victims of CTA, Metra, and other train accidents.

While public transportation is an essential part of Chicago’s infrastructure, it is not without its risks.

About Chicago’s Train Systems

The Chicagoland area is served by two primary public train systems: the “L” train and Metra. Union Station serves numerous Amtrak lines as well.

Injuries from Train Accidents

Although less frequent than car accidents, train accidents are more common than most people realize. The Federal Railroad Administration reports that annually there are nearly 2,000 train accidents nationwide. The leading causes of these accidents include:

  • Train derailments (responsible for more than half of all accidents)
  • Human factors
  • Track-related issues
  • Equipment and signal malfunctions
  • Collisions with pedestrians and other vehicles

In Chicago, the situation is no different. People die and suffer injuries in train accidents every year.

While many of these deaths and injuries result from major accidents like derailments and collisions, even more “minor” incidents can result in serious injuries as well. Train operators owe a duty to keep their passengers and the public safe, and if you have suffered any type of injury in a train accident, you may be entitled to significant financial compensation.

At Malman law, we handle train accident cases involving all types of injuries, including:

Also, if you have lost a loved one in a Chicago train accident, we can help you pursue a claim for wrongful death.
