Millions of people are on the move every day, taking both public and private transportation. In a large city like Chicago, commuters ride in trains (CTA, Metra), public buses or school buses, cars and SUVs throughout the city each day. The Midwest also has many lakes and rivers that serve as playgrounds for boats and jet skis/personal watercrafts.
Tragic accidents on roads, waterways and rail systems put passengers and drivers at great risk of being injured or killed. Accidents may be caused by many factors such as driver negligence, defective equipment and faulty warning systems. People traveling in these vehicles, however, are not the only ones at risk of being injured or killed. Thousands of innocent bystanders, including pedestrians and bicyclists, are killed each year by vehicles of all kinds.
If you are involved in an accident and think you have a claim, it is best to first speak to an attorney before discussing the matter with strangers or outside parties.
