Trains in Chicago, along with buses, are examples of common carriers. Common carriers owe a high duty of care to their passengers. Specifically, they are required to constantly inspect, and if necessary, repair train engines and cars, look for hidden defects on trains and along rail lines, and hire individuals (including train operators and conductors) who are experienced and who are properly trained. If the carrier breaches any of these duties and a train accident results, then the injured person or persons may be able to file an insurance claim or lawsuit against the carrier.
