Plainfield Train Accident Attorney

Plainfield Train Accident Lawyer

Will County Public Transit Accident Lawyer for CTA, Metra, and Amtrak Accident Victims

Along with Navy Pier and Wrigley Field, Chicago's elevated train system, known as the "L" has become a cultural icon in the city and the region as a whole. The L provides millions of rides each and every day and, when combined with other commuter rail systems in the area (including Metra and Amtrak), represents one of the largest mass-transit networks in the entire world. With such volume of ridership, however, accidents are inevitable. When accidents occur due to negligent operation or maintenance, injured victims may be entitled to compensation. At Flaherty Law, LLC, we understand the region's need for rapid transit and medium capacity railways, but we are committed to helping train accident victims recover the damages they deserve when they have been hurt.

Train Accident Legal Counsel from Plainfield, IL

Whether you are traveling just a few miles on a Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) train, commuting to downtown Chicago from Joliet using the Metra system, or trying to get from Chicago to New York on Amtrak, the risk of an accident is real. Passenger trains involve many tons of steel moving at very high speeds, and they are often difficult to stop when a problem occurs. Additionally, many local commuters are forced to stand on crowded trains, leaving them particularly vulnerable to injuries from an unexpected motion of the car. While some train accidents are dramatic and deadly, such as derailments covered heavily by national news outlets, injuries can easily occur in much smaller accidents, which are often just as dangerous.

Advocate for Injured Train Accident Victims

The sheer size and passenger capacity of most train systems mean that when an accident does occur, dozens if not hundreds are likely to be injured. It does not matter if the injuries were caused by a collision with another train, a collision with a car or truck, or a non-collision incident, we at Flaherty Law, LLC are prepared to help. We will work closely with authorities and accident investigators to determine the cause of the accident and who may be held liable. With our experience and skill, we are prepared to seek compensation from any and all accountable parties, including the driver, railway carrier, or the maintenance company responsible for the condition of the train or track.

When you have been injured in a train accident, you have suffered enough. We refuse to let insurance companies take advantage of you by offering insufficient, and often insulting, settlements. You deserve a quick resolution to your case, but we understand that a full, fair recovery may take a little more time. No matter how long the road to compensation may seem, we will remain at your side, advocating for your best interests at every stage and ensuring your rights as an innocent victim are fully protected.
