Railroad and Train Accidents
Illinois has become one of the busiest railroading states in the country. Illinois ranks first nationwide in total railroad freight carried, total miles of track and frequency of train traffic. Illinois continues to be the hub of the nation’s railway system, a title it has held for 150 years.
Every year there are hundred of railroad and train accidents in Chicago and beyond. Often times these accidents result in severe catastrophic injuries and death. The railroads aggressively defend these actions and often cast blame on those injured or killed in an accident in an attempt to divert attention from their own negligence.
