Train accidents can involve both commuter and freight trains, as well as subway and elevated (known as the "L" or "El" in the Chicago area) trains.
These railway accidents can be caused by a range of factors, including operator error, intoxication and/or drug use by the operator, human errors, equipment malfunctions, improper procedures, and negligence.
Injuries stemming from train accidents can range from minor to severe, and often include fatalities.
These accidents often cause victims to incur large medical bills and other expenses, miss work, and suffer from recurring pain.
