Types of Mass Transit Accidents
Transit companies such as Metra may be held accountable for any accident that occurs on or in their vehicles or in any of their facilities. For example, the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) may be held accountable not only for accidents on its trains, but for slip-and-fall accidents that happen in their stations.
Other types of accidents include:
- Excessive speed
- Sudden breaking and stops
- Doors closing on limbs
- Leaving the stop too soon
- Collisions with buses or other mass transit vehicles
- Improper maintenance of stations, floors, stairs, seats, windows or doors leading to injury
