Each day, thousands of Chicagoans ride the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) and the L (or El) line to commute and travel throughout the city and out to the suburbs. The train is a major artery of transportation, and those who ride on it trust that it will get them where they want to go safely and on time.
If one mistake is made, however, injuries can result — even serious or fatal if the mistake is bad enough. Fighting the CTA to collect compensation and damages after such an accident can seem intimidating and futile.
At Healy Scanlon Law Firm, we fight on behalf of train accident victims, no matter how serious the injury. Our attorneys are experienced personal injury and accident litigators with the skill and background needed to take on large organizations like CTA, Amtrak or other public transportation companies. We have a proven track record of recovering maximum damages for clients following train accidents, and we want to put our experience to work for you.
