Chicago Fire Department personnel were called to the scene of a CTA bus crash this morning on the 2500 block of South Ashland. Early news reports indicated that the bus hit a light pole.The CTA is considered a common carrier under the law. This means that it owes the highest degree of care for the safety of its passengers. Failing to exercise the highest degree of care is negligence and a fair basis for proceeding with a bus accident lawsuit against the CTA. Almost any accident which resulted in the bus leaving the roadway and hitting a light pole would indicate that the CTA failed to exercise that high standard of care for the safety of its passengers.As experienced Chicago personal injury lawyers, we have handled many cases involving claims and lawsuits against the CTA and stand ready to help any of the victims of this morning’s bus accident.
