Time limits to bring a medical malpractice suit in Illinois

Under Illinois law, a patient or a patient's family member can file a lawsuit against a doctor or health care facility for medical malpractice if the doctor or provider causes death or injury to the patient as a result of malpractice. To recover damages, however, there are certain conditions that need to be fulfilled in court.

OSHA changes reporting requirements for work-related deaths

Workplace accidents are all too common in Illinois. While many of these accidents won't be serious, some will be fatal. Construction negligence is particularly likely to lead to fatal workplace injuries and accidents. The loss of a loved one is never easy, but when a sudden work-related accident takes people from their families, the loss can be even harder to bear. In 2013, more than 4,000 U.S. workers were killed on the job.

Comparative negligence under Illinois law

Many Illinois residents know that if they are injured through someone else's negligence, the injured may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses and other damages. In many cases, this concept is relatively straightforward. For instance, if a drunk driver runs a stop sign and collides with a sober driver who had the right of way, it's highly likely that a court will find the drunk driver liable for the sober driver's damages. But what if both drivers shared some part of the fault for the accident? This question raises a complex issue known as comparative negligence.
