People in the Greater Chicago area regularly rely upon public transportation – including the “L” train – both during the holiday season as well as year-round. Generally speaking, public transportation is a safer alternative to driving in heavy Chicago traffic. However, accidents on these trains can still occur, and when they do, you may be able to assert a legal claim or cause of action for the injuries that you suffer.
Chicago’s L-train is run by the Chicago Transit Authority – otherwise known as the CTA. If you have been injured in an L-train accident, the Chicago personal injury lawyers at Malman Law may be able to assist. Our legal team can investigate the circumstances of the accident in which you were involved, interview witnesses, and gather other evidence – all for the purpose of pursuing monetary compensation on your behalf. Give us a call today at (312) 629-0099 or contact us online to learn more about how we could help you throughout every stage of your personal injury case.
Chicago’s L-train – so named because of the fact that it runs on an elevated track – provides passenger service to and from 140 stations located on both elevated tracks and in the subway. The L-train system consists of a total of eight different train lines that run to Chicago suburbs in the north, south, and west. All of the lines then converge in downtown Chicago where the majority of the city’s businesses, restaurants, and cultural centers are located.
Railroad accidents are actually more common than you might think. According to statistics provided by the Federal Railroad Administration, almost 2,000 railroad accidents take place at various locations throughout the country on an annual basis. This statistic includes commuter rail accidents, such as those that involve the Chicago L-train. Some common causes of these accidents include the following:
If you have been injured in an L-train accident, you may have several legal options. For instance, you might be able to file a claim against a negligent train operator and/or the CTA, depending upon the circumstances.
Injuries in an L-train accident can be severe and may include falls, broken bones, and head injuries, to name a few. The skilled legal team at Malman Law can review how your accident occurred and can assist you with bringing a claim against the proper individual or entity.
