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.
