Former pro football players collect workers' compensation

When most people in Illinois think about workers' compensation claims, they probably envision individuals who were injured in construction or industrial accidents on the job. However, many other people in other occupations are open to injuries on the job as well - including professional athletes.

What are pain and suffering damages in a personal injury case?

Most of our readers in Illinois are familiar with the fact that, in the aftermath of a car accident or other type of accident, the injured victims can pursue legal options in order to receive financial compensation for expenses such as medical costs and property damage. However, many people have also heard of "pain and suffering" damages but aren't as familiar with when these types of damages can be pursued.

Help is available for victims of workplace accidents

Construction sites and other industrial work sites can be dangerous for workers. Workers have the right to a safe workplace and when they have been harmed because proper safety precautions were not taken at their workplace, it is important for them to be familiar with the protections available to them. When a worker has been injured on the job it impacts both them and their family which is why understanding the resources available to them is helpful.

Legal options for victims of a failure to diagnose

When a medical professional fails to properly diagnose, or fails to timely diagnose, a medical condition, it can result in serious harm and damages to victims and their family members. The lack of treatment or incorrect treatment as a result of a failure to diagnose may result in liability for a medical professional that has committed medical malpractice.

In, out and all around: Danger lurks in the form distractions

Are you the type of person whose vehicle looks (and maybe smells) as brand new today as it did the day you actually bought it, which may have been several years ago? To the contrary, perhaps you would be the messy half of the Odd Couple, not caring about clutter or if last week's fast food lunch bag is still on the floor of your car. Whether clean as a whistle or messy as can be, your car may contain hazards in the form of potential distractions.
