The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) operates the popular ‘L’ train. Nearly a million people ride the ‘L’ every day, making the second oldest rapid transit system in the U.S. the third busiest mass transit network in America.
Accidents on the ‘L’ are rare, but they happen more than many people might realize. Whether it’s a slip and fall accident on a train platform in winter or being assaulted on a train while riding home from work, you have rights if you’ve been injured while riding or waiting for an ‘L’ train.
