Train Accidents

Published by Mark Brynteson

Massive urban cities like Chicago would die without decent public transportation. But trains and buses can be dangerous places. Derailments, sudden stops, jolts, and speeding can all lead to serious injuries and even death. If you or a family member has been hurt, consult today with Mark D. Brynteson. According to Illinois law, train passengers must be afforded the highest degree of care. Engineers who drive under the influence, inspectors who fail to do their job, maintenance crews who do careless work, and companies that don’t exercise good judgment can put literally hundreds of lives at risk.

Although train accidents are statistically rarer than car, bike and truck accidents; when they do occur, the results can be nightmarish. For instance, in 2007, many died and dozens were injured when the operator of a Southern California train got distracted while text messaging and careered off the tracks. Your train accident need not have made the news in order for you to bring suit, however. A sudden unexplained stop that sends you lurching backwards into a pole or another passenger can lead to whiplash, torn ligaments, severe bruising, or soft tissue injuries. The resulting chronic pain can require many thousands of dollars in medical costs to fix.

Client Testimonials

I have known Mr. Brynteson for many years. I first met him in a social setting at a men's prayer group, then later had the privilege to use him professionally on several occasions. Mr. Brynteson has set up two non-profit corporations that I am a part of in record time. His competence, speed of action and knowledge in the area was astounding! I believe that Mr. Brynteson has the integrity that he would not take on any case in which he feels he could not do an exceptional job for his client. I certainly could recommend this gentlemen and am privileged to publicly give him a 5 star rating.

When I finally called Mark Brynteson after being mired in a nasty situation for several months, Mark immediately took charge and directed every reponse on my part. He explained the problems clearly from a legal standpoint and also provided options when they were available. One day when I was quite sick and flat on my back, Mark called to follow up on a problem. When he finished, he said, "Today I'm not on the clock". Under the circumstances, that consideration was highly appreciated.
