Chicago-area hospital faces wrongful death lawsuit

Going to the doctor can be an anxiety filled experience for just about anyone. A patient may be experiencing symptoms, but not know the cause. When this happens, imaginations can run wild and individuals can think that they have one of the worst medical conditions. Yet, even if this is the case, experienced medical professionals should be able to adequately treat an individual, many times leading to an improved or completely remedied condition.

Inadequate staffing can lead to nursing home neglect

Utilizing the services provided by a nursing home seem straightforward. An elderly loved one is registered to reside there, and he or she is given the nutrition, supervision and medical care needed to keep him or her healthy and safe. Yet, behind the scenes, there are many regulations in effect in order to ensure these nursing homes are safe. These regulations address a number of issues, including employee training requirements and safe food preparation.

Attorneys understand how to address evidentiary issues

Drunk drivers abound in the Chicago area, whether we like to think about it or not. At any given moment, day or night, a drunk driver can take an individual by surprise and cause a drunk driving accident leading to serious injuries. If you have been hurt in this type of accident, then you know the amount of pain and suffering and the extent of financial damage that can be caused. In the aftermath of such a wreck, you may find yourself wondering how best to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the driver who injured you.

Chain of custody in a drunk driving personal injury lawsuit

Sometimes the worlds of criminal and civil law coincide. One area where this may occur is when a victim has filed a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit in Illinois against a drunk driver. The defendant may have faced criminal charges for the incident, but the result of that case does not necessarily have an effect on the outcome of the civil lawsuit. However, the victim may try to use evidentiary tactics in an attempt to establish that the defendant was negligent, his or her negligence caused the accident in question and that accident resulted in the victim's damages.
