Chicago CTA Injury Attorneys

At Steinberg, Burtker & Grossman, our goal is to maximize compensation for victims of Chicago Transit Authority (CTA), METRA and AMTRAK accidents. These personal injury cases involve injuries sustained on buses and trains or from being struck by a bus or train.

With four decades of experience serving injured people in Chicago, the CTA injury lawyers at Steinberg, Burtker & Grossman know how to handle these unique mass transit accident cases. We are committed to providing results. You can be confident that we will work hard to ensure you receive a financial recovery that you need for medical expenses, lost wages and other losses.

The Challenge: Taking on a Government Agency

Public transit injury claims are unique because the opponent is not just an independent driver and that driver's insurance company. The opponent is a government agency. This can present a challenge.

The challenge is not necessarily that the government agency has an abundance of resources to defend against the injury claims, but that they are protected by specific laws. To make matters more complex, those laws change frequently. They involve everything from time limits in which victims are allowed to file claims to caps on how much can be collected. Our Chicago personal injury lawyers are up-to-date on these laws and understand how to work with them in order to get results for bus and train crash victims.

Maximizing Compensation in all CTA, METRA AND AMTRAK Injury Claims

There are two types of Chicago public transportation injury claims. The first type involves harm to people outside the bus or train. These include cases in which buses collide with cars or hit pedestrians.

The second type involves harm to users of mass transit, such as when a train or bus crash causes harm to a passenger. Our Chicago personal injury attorneys can also represent people who were injured getting on or off a train or bus, in bus accidents and train derailments, and other accidents resulting from Chicago Transit Authority negligence.

All Personal Injury Claims Are Handled on a Contingency Basis

We have the resources to invest in your case. We will not ask you for any payment unless we are successful in getting you compensation for your injury.
