We are Experienced in Chicago Mass Transit Litigation Involving:

CTA Accidents

Accidents caused by the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) buses and trains can have devastating effects on smaller vehicles. Do not hesitate to contact our personal injury attorneys to learn more about your options for monetary recovery.

“L” Accidents

In Chicago, the “L” is a popular method of public transportation. At The Horwitz Law Group, we represent clients who have been injured in accidents involving the “L” trains, including falling from a platform, a car being derailed or an assault in a train station.

Bus Accidents

Accidents involving CTA buses, school buses or charter buses can cause serious injuries such as brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and burns. If you or a loved one was hit by a bus, contact the Chicago firm of The Horwitz Law Group.

Train Accidents

The Chicago attorneys at The Horwitz Law Group have handled personal injury cases involving commuter trains, light rails and Metra vehicles. If you suffered an injury in an accident involving a train in Chicago, do not hesitate to contact our law firm.

Metra Accidents

In Chicago, residents have several options for public transportation. Riders can be injured in Metra accidents while riding as passengers, while boarding or disembarking or while at the station.

Rear-End Collision

Mass transit drivers might not properly gauge the distance between vehicles and cause rear-end collisions. If you or a loved one was injured in an accident caused by the negligence or inattention of a bus driver, it is wise to contact the Chicago personal injury attorneys at The Horwitz Law Group.

Failure to Stop at Red Lights

By virtue of their size, Chicago buses can be difficult to control for new, poorly trained or inattentive drivers. Bus drivers run the risk of missing traffic signals and colliding with other vehicles.

Maximize Compensation for Your Injuries

Immediately after an accident, it is important to contact an attorney who can preserve evidence for your claim. Our attorneys will perform an investigation, collect medical and police records, contact witnesses, and preserve any material evidence necessary for your case.

Trusted Advocacy From an Experienced Chicago Public Transportation Injury Attorney

We understand the life-altering consequences that a mass transit accident or injury can have on you. You may have suffered a serious or disabling injury, become unable to work or care for your family, or lost a loved one. Our Chicago personal injury attorneys will take a comprehensive approach to your case and claim, making sure that you have the medical care you need.

Our firm has recovered millions of dollars in settlements and trial verdicts, most notably, in a case involving a client locked in the doors of a Chicago Transit Authority train. The C.T.A. offered $50,000.00 to settle the case based upon the $11,970.00 worth of medical bills. Mark Horwitz and his client refused to take this offer to settle and instead went to trial obtaining a verdict of $1,197,000.00, thus making Mark a member of the “Million Dollar Verdict Club”.

Aggressive Representation – Quality Legal Services

Do not lose your right to sue. There are different statutes of limitations on personal injury claims when suing public mass transit authorities. Instead of having the normal two years to file suit, you only have one year from the date of the accident to file suit against a mass transit authority. By taking immediate action you will protect those rights that those agencies hope you will overlook. We offer free consultations and do not collect a fee until we recover a settlement or verdict in your favor.

If you or someone you care about has been injured, contact an injury lawyer at The Horwitz Law Group to schedule a free no-obligation consultation.
