Deer, flying objects and otherway Illinois road dangers

Every time you get behind the wheel to drive in Illinois, you no doubt expect to safely reach your destination. While you may be aware that there is always a risk involved with traveling by motor vehicle, you also understand that you improve your own safety by adhering to traffic regulations and remaining alert and cautious while driving.  

Construction accident kills one, injures another

When a worker gets to work in the morning, they expect to spend the day working hard to earn money for their family and to return to them at the end of the day. They bid goodbye to their family members with the same expectation, so when a worker does not return home after the day ends, it can emotionally wreck the family members who thought the day would be like any other.

Are all injuries covered by workers' compensation insurance?

Illinois residents may be aware that most employers are supposed to carry workers' compensation insurance to protect workers if they have suffered from an injury related to their work. Workers compensation allows them to recover lost wages and other costs associated with the work-related incident. But, it is important to know that workers' compensation does not cover every type of injury.

How common is sepsis in nursing homes?

Deciding to put an elderly loved one in a nursing home is a difficult decision to make, but it makes the emotional strain easier to bear when one knows family members are getting the care and attention they need. However, recent surveys and investigations are reporting a disturbing trend -- nursing homes across the country are not doing enough to prevent bedsores and other infections that led to sepsis.

Your accident was days ago: Why does your head still hurt?

The day you were driving along an Illinois roadway and another car hit you may have started out like any typical day. Perhaps you were on your way home from work or traveling to one of your children's sporting events. Even if you saw signs of potential danger before the crash took place, there might not have been anything you could have done to avoid it.  

Transportation accidents most dangerous work incident

Illinois residents are hard-working individuals, who take the responsibilities and obligations that come along with their employment seriously. This is why they expect their employers to take those obligations just as seriously and provide them with a safe working environment in which they can complete their tasks, whether that be in an office space or in a construction site. When this duty is not fulfilled, workplace accidents can take place that can seriously injure a worker. In those instances, workers' compensation may be available to provide financial assistance to cover medical costs.
