Chicago Bus Accident Attorney
Award-Winning Lawyers Hold Negligent Drivers Accountable
Like any traffic collision, bus accidents can lead to serious – if
not fatal – personal injuries. Countless Chicago residents rely
on public transportation to get around the city. However, the size and
weight of these vehicles can lead to devastating traffic accidents. Unlike
automobile crashes, which usually involve a small number of passengers,
bus accidents can result in dozens of individuals being harmed.
Examples of bus accidents:
- School Buses
- Motor Coaches
- Charter Buses
- Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) Buses
- Shuttle Buses
If you suffered an injury in a bus accident that was caused by someone
negligence, you have the right to pursue financial compensation for your medical
expenses, missed wages, and noneconomic damages. Our experienced Chicago
personal injury lawyer at Duncan Law Group can help you pursue fair compensation.

What are my legal rights?
As a bus accident victim, you have the legal right to file a civil claim
to collect financial compensation for your injury. The circumstances surrounding
your accident will determine what kind of civil claim (or claims) you
file. If multiple parties were responsible for your injury, you can file
multiple claims. Any personal injury claim can be complicated, especially
if it involves several negligent parties.
Depending on the nature of your case, you may be able to sue the bus driver,
bus company, or the city for your accident. The cause of the accident
determines who is liable for your injury. If the collision was caused
by a defective road, the city may be responsible; if the bus crashed because
it was not properly maintained, you can sue the bus company. Finally,
you can file a claim against the bus driver if his / her negligence caused
