Keating Law Offices Hosts Roundtable Discussion on CTA Cases

Keating Law Offices hosted a roundtable discussion in Chicago for fellow trial lawyers on issues commonly found when litigating cases against the Chicago Transportation Authority (CTA).

Keating Law Offices has handled numerous cases for clients who were injured in a collision with the CTA. The CTA holds a unique position in that it is a municipal corporation that provides transportation services. As such, Illinois law holds that the CTA is a "common carrier" and it must provide "the highest degree of care possible" to its passengers.

The CTA is also somewhat unique in that its in-house legal team represents the CTA and its employees in personal injury and wrongful death cases. Many CTA attorneys are known for aggressively defending their cases.

Keating Law Offices has successfully resolved several cases against the CTA for the firm's clients. The firm has the knowledge and experience to fight the CTA when it is at fault. If you have any questions regarding this post or an issue involving Illinois personal injury law, please contact Illinois Bicycle Attorney Mike Keating at 312-208-7702 or 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. All e-mails and phone calls are returned promptly. All initial consultations are confidential and free.
