Hit-and-run car accident kills woman, injures a man and a child

Too many people in Illinois and across the United States who meet an untimely death will do so in a fatal car accident. Some of these are due to circumstances beyond anyone's control. But others are because of negligence on the part of one of the drivers. Regardless of how the automobile accident came about, there are many issues that must be taken into consideration in its aftermath. These include medical and funeral expenses and the family that has suffered the loss of a loved one moving on without the person who was killed.

Causes, frequency and dangers of medical negligence, part II

Medical care and treatment is meant to assuage concerns and help a patient with problems. It is an unfortunate reality that a negligent doctor can make a mistake causing injury, failing to provide proper treatment and even leading to the unnecessary loss of a loved one. Research has focused on these issues across the country, understanding them and preventing them. People in Illinois need to be cognizant of them in the event that they affect them and family members. Part I of this blog discussed some of the recorded errors, studies and other issues.

Causes, frequency and dangers of medical negligence, part I

In Illinois and across the U.S., people who go for medical treatment for an illness or a medical concern will feel relief when they are told that it is not something that is serious. If they are told that it is a significant issue, they will go through treatment to deal with it. Sometimes, however, the diagnosis is wrong, inappropriate treatment is given and people suffer as a result. Medical mistakes are often preventable. There are certain important facts that a person should understand when they believe that medical negligence has led to a worsened condition or even a fatality.

Construction negligence may stem from increase in building

Construction workers in Illinois and across the country might be grateful that the increase in building has given them a significant amount of work, but their chosen profession is also rife with dangers. When working high above ground, for example, there is the chance that someone will fall. Furthermore, exposed wires can make workers vulnerable to electrocution. Also, objects can fall from great heights and place workers in danger of being hit and killed.
