Chicago driver faces DUI charge in fatal auto accident


Car accidents are common throughout the United States, including in Illinois, but they are more common in large urban areas with streets and highways that are crowded with traffic day and night. Unfortunately, when cars and other vehicles collide, their occupants are vulnerable to injuries from the minor to the extremely serious and even the life threatening. In the worst cases, people die from collisions. Too often, the cause is negligence, and one of the worst acts of negligence is to drive while intoxicated.

Nursing home resident-to-resident mistreatment harms the elderly


Nursing homes play an important role in the growing number of aging individuals in the United States. In Illinois, nursing homes and assisted living facilities are scattered across the state, providing care to many elderly people. Inside nursing homes, professional staff members take care of the overall well-being of residents who may participate in various activities and interact with other residents inside. Sadly, not all interactions are friendly as some nursing home residents are capable of inflicting harm to their fellow residents.

What are the elements of a wrongful death lawsuit?


No one can tell when a person will die. In Kane County, Illinois, local residents understand that death is inevitable and when their loved ones die due to natural causes such as a serious medical condition, they find it easier to accept and move on with their lives. However, preventable death is a different matter. When someone dies due to negligence, the family members of the deceased are likely to ask questions about the fatal accident. For them, justice and compensation are the two factors that can help them move forward following a tragic accident.

Truck accident attorneys focus on the victim's best interests


Throughout the country, including Illinois, only trained professionals are legally allowed to operate large commercial vehicles such as trucks. Professional truck drivers are required to follow all federal and state trucking regulations to ensure that they drive safely. Unfortunately, not every truck driver follows these regulations, and when they do not they frequently put other people's lives at risk. When a truck strikes another vehicle on the road the results are often catastrophic because small vehicles such as passenger cars are no match for the size and weight of these vehicles, and people can easily be injured or killed.
