Stabbing on Chicago Subway Train Leaves Victim and Suspects Hospitalized

NBC 5 Chicago has reported that a man was stabbed during a robbery on a southbound Red Line train as he switched trains near the 1500 block of N. Clybourn. 

At approximately 2:05 a.m., on Friday, July 22, 2022, the 42-year-old victim was switching trains when six suspects attacked him. The victim suffered multiple stab wounds and lacerations as the suspects attacked him with a broken glass bottle and a knife. He pulled out his own knife to defend himself, causing three of the suspects to be taken to the hospital for treatment. The victim remains in serious condition, and all six suspects have been taken into custody.

This is one of many acts of violence on the Chicago Transit Authority trains; read about earlier instances here:

Filing Lawsuits For Victims Stabbed On Public Transit

Attorney contributor Brian Kent represents victims of violent stabbings. As an experienced stabbing victim attorney, Brian shared some legal options available to victims of violent crimes on public transit.

"Public transit users rely on the Transit Authority to provide a safe and secure transportation method. These officials are legally responsible for providing safety measures to minimize the risk of preventable violent crimes, including stabbings and shootings. If officials fail to uphold their duty of care, they could be held liable in a lawsuit. It is necessary to investigate if the officials were negligent in implementing sufficient property safety. This may include security cameras, patrolling security personnel, and even metal detectors or bag checks upon entry. Too many times, stabbings occur due to a lack of safety. Furthermore, if the station had a history of violence, the transit authority would be responsible for increasing its measures to reduce further instances."

"It can be difficult for victims of violent crimes to determine all parties responsible for their injury. An experienced attorney can help to identify and hold these parties accountable for all damages. Victims of public transit stabbings should consult with an attorney to explore all their legal rights to seek justice and compensation."
