Metra is a suburban rail system that serves Chicago and the surrounding area, including the counties of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry and Will. Metra provides approximately 80 million rides per year. By and large, Metra is a safe and reliable method of transportation, but every transportation company has accidents. When you are dealing with crowded, fast-moving commuter trains, accidents can have severe consequences.
Train operators have the responsibility to take the required precautions to ensure the safety of all riders. This includes maintaining a safe speed, avoiding sudden stops, making sure that passengers are clear of the doors before closing and many other considerations. When they fail to do so and accidents occur, passengers can suffer extremely serious injuries.
