In addition, the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) operates a subway and elevated rail lines in the city, the Amtrak network travels across Illinois with destinations in Chicago, downstate, and beyond state lines, and many freight lines make the Chicago area a regular stop in their cross-country routes.
According to the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), Illinois had 62 train-related deaths in 2007. The FRA also reported a total of 7,600 rail-related deaths nationwide from 1999-2008.

Actions against a common carrier can involve the negligent conduct of the driver or inadequate training, or the condition of the bus itself such as improper maintenance or defective parts. Chicago personal injury attorney, Aaron Bryant, can help you investigate your bus accident injury to help to determine if there is negligence acts by the bus company.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a bus accident, certain time periods are required to be followed in filing a bus accident lawsuit. These deadlines are called statutes of limitations. They vary from state to state and certain common carriers that are owned by governmental entities such as federal, state, county or city governments may have special notices and statutes of limitations that must be given before filing a lawsuit. These time periods can be very short. Contact Chicago CTA accident lawyer, Aaron Bryant, and he can help you assess the time limits on your case.
If you are involved in a bus accident, be sure to contact the police. If you are able, take down the bus driver’s name, address, date of birth, driver’s license number and expiration date. Get his or her phone number. Get the bus company's insurance information. Get the make, year, model, license plate number, and expiration date and vehicle identification (VIN) number of all vehicles involved in the accident. If the driver is not the owner of the vehicle, you will need all of this information of the owner of the vehicle. Be sure to get identification information of any passengers in any cars. Also, see if you can get the names, addresses and phone numbers of any witnesses to the accident. Even if the person will not offer the information, get that person’s license plate number. Call the Chicago bus accident attorneys at our law firm to help you collect the benefits that you deserve.
