Fatal car accident in Illinois kills one man

Most people accept that when they go out onto the road in a motor vehicle, there is a chance that there will be an accident. However, few think that it will actually happen to them. Unfortunately, an auto accident can happen without warning under a variety of different circumstances and lead to severe injuries and even fatalities. Those who have lost a loved one in a fatal car accident need to have a grasp of what must be done to determine how and why it happened, and if they have a chance of receiving compensation in a legal filing.

Worker death can involve exposure to toxic substances

When people in Illinois and across the country head to work, they are not thinking that they are putting themselves in danger of not coming home. Although some jobs involve inherent risks, employers should take all reasonable steps to protect their workers from injury or death. The death of a worker in the course of employment does not necessarily have to occur as a result of an accident or incident in the line of duty. People can become ill because of exposure or a lack of awareness of what they are dealing with.

Nursing home maltreatment alleged to have caused death

According to allegations in a recently filed lawsuit, a Chicago area nursing home failed to properly care for a quadriplegic patient, and the staff's errors ultimately led to the man's premature death. The complaint alleges a chain of abuse and mistreatment that demonstrates how nursing home neglect can cause patients unimaginable suffering and lead to an early death.

Wall collapse kills worker at Chicago Ford plant

Structural collapse is one of the most common hazards faced by construction workers in the Chicago area and elsewhere. Whether the work involves removal of a portion of an existing structure or new construction, the unexpected collapse of a wall or ceiling caused by construction negligence poses a serious hazard to all people working on the site. In a recent accident at the Ford Chicago Assembly Plant, one worker was killed and another critically injured when a wall suddenly collapsed.
