As citizens, we trust that our public transportation system will provide us with dependable and competent drivers. This trust was broken for one of our clients, who, because of the negligent action of a bus driver, unfortunately will never be able to fully use his right leg again. On the day of the accident our client, a teenage boy, stepped in front of a stopped CTA bus. The bus driver mistakenly had not engaged the safety clutch, which caused the bus to roll, pinning our client between the driver’s bus and another. After spending a month in the hospital with a severe break to his right femur, our client then endured a slow process of recovery. The law team at Pintas and Mullins Law Firm exposed the mistake of the bus driver and collected damages in the amount of $1.25 million for the boy and his family.
