Pediatrics and medical malpractice

Most Illinois children are taken to doctors and hospitals on a regular basis. In fact, children and the elderly are two of the most vulnerable groups who need medical attention regularly. When the doctors and medical practitioners do not treat them properly due to medical negligence, it can be catastrophic for the family.

The economic impact of motor vehicle accidents in Illinois

Car accidents often lead to serious injuries or death. Many Illinois residents have suffered physical injuries, property damage and disability due to car accidents. In many of these cases the accident was caused by the negligent actions of the other driver.

Can security cameras make Illinois nursing homes safer?

Many elderly and chronically ill patients are admitted to Illinois nursing homes for prolonged care each year. Sadly, residents in nursing homes are sometimes abused or neglected by the nursing home staff. Nursing home abuse may include physical abuse as well as sexual abuse. It can lead to psychological and emotional trauma and long-term damage. In 2013 alone, the Illinois Department of Public Health determined that 106 allegations of nursing home abuse and neglect were valid.

Why reporting a work-related accident to OSHA is important

Many people in Illinois are injured every year in work-related accidents. Employers are required by Illinois law to have workers' compensation insurance, or be self-insured for workers compensation benefits. When a worker has an accident on the job, they are entitled to recover benefits for lost wages and medical expenses. In the event that the worker is killed, his or her family members also have the legal right to claim workers' compensation survivor benefits.

Compromising the health of the elderly

Nursing home abuse is common in many nursing home facilities in Illinois, as well as across the U.S. Nursing home abuse refers to careless acts that may cause serious injury or harm to the elderly residents, affecting them physically, mentally and financially. The Illinois Department of Public Health and the Illinois State Police have been taking measures to decrease the rate of nursing home abuse. If a person suspects nursing home abuse, that person may contact the concerned departments and file a complaint.
