As many Chicagoans rely on the subway on a daily basis to get from point A to point B, it is imperative that they stay safe along the way. However, subways are full of dangerous aspects that can result in a wide variety of accidents, from minor to major. At the Law Office of Daniel E Goodman, LLC, our team of personal injury attorneys in Illinois understand just how damaging subway accidents can be to not only the individual, but to the friends and family surrounding them as well.
While the Chicago Transit Authority takes certain safety measures to make sure passengers are safe, accidents happen.
Types of Accidents
Passengers need to be aware of the dangers that the subway system presents in order to stay safe while traveling. Slip and fall accidents may be common due to all of the commotion that takes place while entering or exiting a train. While aboard the train, it may stop suddenly, resulting in a physical injury for a passenger in a car.
During rush hour, Chicagoans are determined to get home, even if it means shoving themselves onto the train when it is full. This can result in injuries because of door jamming. Other examples of personal injuries sustained during a train ride include getting mugged, collision damages, or injuries because of derailments.
