Construction workers who live in the greater Chicago area truly put their lives at risk every day they go to work to support their families. While there are lots of rules and other precautions in place to protect them, the reality is construction sites are dangerous places. Even a little carelessness on the part of an employer or other party can mean a construction worker does not come home alive after his or her shift.
A previous post on this blog discussed tragic accident which left a young man dead. Police have indicated that they suspect drunk driving and have charged one of the drivers involved in the accident with a DUI.
Police have charged a man who lives in the suburbs of Cook County has been charged with reckless homicide in connection with a fatal drunk driving accident that took place in Tinley Park, a suburb of Chicago to the southwest of the city. The man also faces a DUI charge and several other charges in connection with the accident, including failure to stop.
When residents of the Chicago area go to their doctors, they expect that the doctor will promptly inform them of what is wrong and will start a proper course of treatment. When a doctor misses a diagnosis or gets a diagnosis wrong, it can at best be an inconvenience to the patient and, at worst, cause the patient serious medical problems that can even lead to death.
