Recently, a double-decker Megabus traveling from Atlanta to Chicago was involved in a rollover crash, injuring at least 26 people.  According to the bus driver, in the early morning hours, he tried to avoid an accident and overcorrected his steering. The bus flipped on its side and over the median of I-65. One passenger shared that due to rainy weather conditions, the driver may have had limited visibility or that the driver swerved to avoid something.

The Chicago area is serviced by companies like Megabus, including Greyhound, Chicago Transit Authority (CTA), and Pace Bus Company. Though public transportation offers a convenient and cost-effective way to travel, passenger bus accidents are all too common. Due to the size of buses, injuries involved can be minor to serious, life-threatening matters. The consequences of a bus accident injury can be devastating, so it is crucial to take action to ensure your rights are protected.

Attorney Dan Kotin of Tomasik Kotin Kasserman, LLC has experience in bus accident cases including $43 million in combined settlements for 35 passengers injured in a train crash, $8.4 million settled with Pace on behalf of a woman who suffered  severe brain injury, and $5.1 million for the family of a man killed by a Megabus transportation vehicle.  Attorney Kotin has litigated several cases against Megabus following crashes.
