Losing a loved one is difficult for most people, but over time, they learn to accept the loss and move on. If the death was the result of someone else's negligence, however, accepting the loss may be more difficult. Fortunately, in both Illinois and New York, when a death is the result of medical malpractice, surviving family members have the legal right to seek compensation by means of a lawsuit.
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.
Police officials are still trying to determine the cause of a severe automobile crash near the intersection of Broadway and Hazel in Aurora. The investigation is ongoing, but so far, police have not been able to get a statement due to the severity of the injuries resulting from the incident. One witness claimed a relative heard a loud noise outside and went out to see police and fire vehicles at the scene. The damage was so extreme that passengers had to be extracted with emergency equipment.
