It is an unfortunate reality that commuters suffer frequent injury or even death because of a negligent bus driver or train conductor.

Our Chicago personal injury attorneys help victims who have suffered injuries on buses and trains or from being struck by a bus or a train.
Two types of Chicago public transportation injury Claims
There are two types of injuries involving the Chicago public transportation system. First there are injuries that involve victims who were outside of the bus or train. This type of case includes situations in which buses and trains collide with cars or hit pedestrians. Second there are claims involving victims who were using the transportation system, for example, when a train or a bus crash causes harm to a passenger. The Chicago personal injury attorneys at Zayed Law Offices also provide representation to people who have been injured while entering or getting off of a train or a bus and other types of CTA negligence.
