   Buses are one of the most common forms of transportation in large cities like Chicago. The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) operates hundreds of buses daily through the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) and the Pace suburban bus system. In addition to these, thousands of children ride on school buses each day.

With all of these buses traveling throughout the city daily, accidents happen. In 2007, more than 600 buses were involved in accidents in Illinois according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Why Buses Crash

  • Defective equipment
  • Dangerous roadways
  • Adverse weather conditions
  • Improper bus maintenance

  Getting in an auto accident can be frightening and frustrating. Then you have to deal with the aftermath, too. There may be injuries, and there may be a seriously damaged car that you'll need to have repaired or replaced. Time lost from work, anxiety, pain, and a number of other issues can also show up, so it's not always a simple matter of having the car towed and going on with your life. If you need an auto accident lawyer, Chicago has options for you to consider, and you want to be sure you get the best attorney for your specific case and your needs.

    Whether you should go out and find the best auto accident lawyer Chicago can offer depends on several factors. You want to consider your injuries and the medical bills that have accumulated from them, along with what your insurance company will pay if you have uninsured motorists coverage. In many cases, that coverage is not enough to pay the medical bills from a serious car accident, and it may be in your best interest to sue the other driver in order to recover damages.
