With over 80 million-yearly passengers, there is bound to be accidents
on Metra trains and platforms. Safety and peace are always of the utmost
importance to the conductors, police, and other employees serving on Metra
trains and stations, but mistakes can still happen. It just takes one
second for someone to slip and fall onto the tracks or for a wobbling
train to result in a derailed nightmare. Most accidents could have or
should be prevented by Metra but that is not always the case.
Careless workers can lead to serious accidents that result in crippling
injury and even death. For example, an engineer not following proper policy
for operating the crossing signs and signals, or a conductor that is preoccupied
while operating the train. Due to the complexity of assessing liability
in these accidents, it is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible
so that a proper investigation can begin and all damages can be assessed.
With the help of an experienced attorney, this process can be made simple,
and you can be awarded the money you deserve.
