Get Strong Advocacy from Pavich Law Group, P.C.

In a large metropolitan area such as Chicago, there is a huge public transportation network intended to facilitate movement of citizens, as well as to reduce congestion on area roads. An integral part of this network are busses. There are city busses, tourist busses, school busses and others sharing the road with cars.

Unfortunately, given the large numbers of busses on the roads, bus accidents have become inevitable. And given the size of busses and the all too often lack of safety restraints within these vehicles, serious injuries often result from these accidents.

Bus Accident Statistics in Chicago

Bus accidents are a particularly serious problem in Chicago. Chicago Transit Agency busses were involved in more collisions in 2008 than by busses in any of the nine other largest public transportation networks in the United States. These numbers indicated a bus accident occurring, on average, every day in Chicago. In 2009, a total of 521 people were treated at hospitals for injuries suffered in accidents involving CTA busses.

Of course, CTA busses are just one example of the dangers often associated with large numbers of busses on our streets. Accidents involving school busses and tourist busses occur all too often, and occasionally with tragic results. In 2007, nationwide there were 304 bus accidents involving fatalities. Of these, 38.9% of the accidents involved a school bus.
