There are a few important things to note when considering filing a claim. First you should understand that due to the Illinois statute of limitations you have two years from the date of the Chicago train accident to recover damages for personal injuries. If a government agency owns the train that causes the injury, you then just have one year from the date of the accident to seek compensation. When a governmental agency is involved there are also many other notice requirements to be complied with so you should not hesitate to contact a knowledgeable lawyer to assist you through this process. It can be helpful to have professional representation on your side.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the majority of train accidents are caused by negligence and oftentimes you can bring a personal injury claim against not only the at-fault conductor but also the owner of the train. In any event, the personal injury claim is meant to help you pay for your medical bills and get reimbursed for wages you would have earned had you been able to continue working while healing.

Lastly, you should know that Illinois is a pure tort state, which means that you can only collect monetary damages if you prove the other driver was responsible for the train accident. Once you establish liability, you can seek compensation from the insurance company of the at-fault driver up to the policy limit. Sometimes your personal insurance plan will include an underinsured or uninsured policy too, so you might be eligible to seek damages from your own insurance company.
