Riding the bus is a convenient and economical way to get around, but with 545 million annual bus rides occurring in Chicago alone, and 736 million trips across the state of Illinois, accidents are bound to happen.

We will attempt to reconstruct the scene, reach out and speak to witnesses, and use our extensive experience to figure out who is at fault for the bus accident and prepare a strong case on your behalf.
An Illinois resident was awarded damages of over $9.4 million when she was struck by one of the defendant’s buses. Her legs were so severely injured they had to be amputated. She and her husband sued for her personal injuries and their emotional distress.
A disabled Illinois woman was awarded damages of $1.5 million in a settlement, where a bus driver left her as a passenger in a van all day while the temperature reached 90 degrees causing her to suffer a seizure. The bus driver pled guilty to reckless conduct.
