$775,000 CTA Bus Accident
A 77 year old woman was exiting a Chicago Transit Authority bus when the bus started to roll forward. As a result, she fell out of the slowly moving bus. She fractured her patella and torn ligaments in her knee, requiring surgery. The CTA disputed that the bus was moving, but through diligent investigation, we discovered a videotape inside the bus that captured the whole event and confirmed that the bus was moving as our client exited it. The CTA settled for $775,000.
