Three-car accident in Illinois results in injuries

Many car accidents in Illinois occur because drivers violate traffic laws and regulations. When this occurs, all of the drivers involved and their passengers are at risk of suffering injuries. That appears to have been what happened in a recent car accident in Illinois.

How can texting and driving impact your life?

We all do quite a bit of driving in our daily lives and, although many people probably would not like to admit it, many drivers are using their cellphones while they drive. It is not hard to see that this is a dangerous activity. So, how can texting and driving impact one's life?

Gross negligence and medical malpractice

While most Illinois residents don't concern themselves with legal terms in their daily lives, many people have a good grasp on the concept of negligence, even above and beyond the potential legal use of this term. In essence, negligence, both in regular life and in legal terms, means that some has acted inappropriately in a situation in which more was expected from them, and there were physical or financially consequences as a result.

Things to consider if collision results in injury

While it's natural to assume that if you adhere to all traffic and safety regulations while driving, you'll likely arrive safely to your destination. In reality, there is really no way to predict the ultimate outcome of any road trip you might take. Numerous dangers may lurk nearby without you even knowing. No matter how alert or cautious you are behind the wheel, another person's negligence can place you at immediate risk for injury.

Considering one's options after a railroad or shipping accident

Many people do not think about the impact that railroads and shipping over waterways still have in our daily lives. Advances in technology may make people think that these forms of transportation, particularly for products and goods, is outdated. However, the reality is far from that. Illinois residents can come into contact with railroads and maritime shipping more frequently than they think, particularly if they, or a loved one, is employed in these industries.
