Chicago bus crash attorneys from Abels & Annes have entered into an agreement to work on a case for a South Side resident that was injured in a CTA accident that occurred last Saturday on Lake Shore Drive. Our client was riding a Jackson Park Express bus going southbound around 6:00 p.m. He was seated near the front of the bus when the vehicle lost control, left the road and crashed in the area of 2800 South Lake Shore Drive. No other vehicles were involved in the incident.
After the crash many people jumped out through emergency windows. Several people were bleeding.
There were around 70 passengers on board. A total of 37 people were injured and taken to area hospitals. Our client sustained left knee, right ankle, right wrist and low back injuries. He was taken by ambulance to St. Bernard Hospital in Chicago.
Over the next several days our plaintiff’s pain increased. He has since seen a medical doctor in Chicago and has been referred for an MRI. The severity of his injuries are not yet known.
Other injured passengers were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Stroger Hospital.
The exact cause of CTA bus crash has not yet been determined.
