Public Transit Injury Case Results

$5 Million - CTA Bus Crash

This recovery was for a 22-year-old who was broad-sided by a CTA bus as he was exiting a Jewel Supermarket parking lot. The plaintiff suffered brain damage, causing spastic quadriplegia and cognitive deficits and requiring life long care. Despite the defendant’s contentions that the plaintiff pulled out in front of the bus from a private drive, reconstruction evidence showed that our client was not entirely at fault.

A 19-month-old girl was tragically killed after being struck by a CTA bus. The bus driver was distracted by a passenger paying their fare and failed to brake in time or perform full-service braking. The Chicago Transit Authority agreed to compensate the girl's family in the amount of $1.5 million because of the wrongful death caused by the bus operator's negligence.
