Assessing Metra Accident Cases
Each type of accident and injury must be individually assessed to determine whether and what type of legal action is appropriate.
Metra accidents can be caused by everything from improper maintenance to a drunk or distracted engineer to failure to maintain crossing signs and signals. Every case must be thoroughly investigated to determine what happened and who bears responsibility for the damages. Our Chicago mass transit accident lawyers know how to handle complex train accident cases. We will work with investigators and accident reconstructionists to get the facts of the case. And we will fight tirelessly to obtain compensation for the full extent of your injuries and other damages.
Whether you were injured in a train derailment, fell because of a sudden stop, or were hit by a train due to a non-functioning crossing arm, we can help. To arrange a free initial consultation, please contact The Horwitz Law Group by e-mail or call 312-641-9200.
