Transportation/Mass Transit Litigation
Public transportation, also known as mass transit, is all too familiar to Chicago area residents. Unfortunately, however, so are the accidents and injuries that occur to passengers and pedestrians. If you have been the victim of mass transit operator negligence, or the failing of equipment, the attorneys of Tomasik Kotin Kasserman can get you the compensation you deserve.
Our law firm assists clients who have been injured by taxis and limousines, buses (CTA, Pace, and Chartered Buses), trains and railroads ("L," CTA, Metra, and Amtrak), as well as airplanes. In Illinois, the law states that "common carriers" such as these transit means must provide the highest degree of care to keep passengers safe. When mass transit fails to provide this safety, the transportation operator or provider is in the wrong. In non-common carrier cases, such as a pedestrian or bicycle accident where one is injured outside of the bus, train, or taxi, the victim can still claim recovery damages under standard personal injury laws. If you have been the victim of negligence in a transportation or mass transit accident, TKK can assist you with your case.
