A shuttle bus carrying passengers from Economy Lot “E” to the departure terminals crashed into a concrete barrier on the main entrance roadway into O’Hare airport Friday morning. According to news reports, a number of passengers were seriously injured.

“These cases can be very complex, and early investigation by attorneys who are experienced is critical,” according to Dan Kotin, who has successfully worked on many such cases, including a $43 million combined recovery on behalf of 35 passengers injured in a commuter train crash; a verdict of nearly $29.6 million on behalf of a woman who sustained a serious brain injury in the derailment of a Metra train; an $8.4 million recovery against Pace Bus Company on behalf of a woman who was seriously injured; a $4.5 million settlement with the CTA for a family who lost their 10 year-old child when she was struck by a bus; multi-million dollar recoveries against a major bus company for two separate incidents in which pedestrians were struck and killed; and a $2.6 million verdict against the CTA for a man injured by a bus.

“It is important to obtain and preserve evidence immediately after a crash,” Mr. Kotin says, “because such evidence can be incredibly important in piecing together how and why the crash occurred.”
