Truck accidents: Big rig driver dies in multi-vehicle crash

Motorists in Illinois have reason to feel threatened by tractor-trailers, semis and 18-wheelers that share the roads with them. The shear size of a big rig is enough to make passenger vehicle operators feel vulnerable when they drive alongside the large trucks. Victims of car vs. truck accidents are seldom unscathed.

When winter weather contributes to a car accident

Southern Illinois may not see too much snow during the winter months, but freezing rain, ice and other adverse weather are still a problem at times. Sadly, too few people adjust their driving habits when the roads are bad due to these conditions, and accidents result. When winter weather contributes to a car accident, the victim or -- in the event of fatality -- his or her surviving family members may be entitled to seek compensation for any resulting losses.

In a car accident with a drowsy driver?

Distracted driving and impaired driving are two issues that are commonly talked about, as numerous people in Illinois and elsewhere are hurt or killed by drivers who are not paying attention or are too intoxicated to be driving their vehicles safely. Drowsy driving is also a big problem, one that deserves more attention than it gets. When a drowsy driver causes a car accident, the results can be devastating.

Workers' compensation payouts less than they used to be

Every year, too many Illinois residents suffer injuries while on the job. Every year, too many of these individuals end up getting very little in compensation. The simple truth is that the amount being paid in workers' compensation benefits, in general, is less than it used to be.

Compensation may be available after a dooring accident

Many people in Illinois depend on bicycles as their primary form of transportation, while others just enjoy the sport. Come rain or shine, it is common to see cyclists out and about daily. Unfortunately, motorists often fail to be on the lookout for them, causing numerous individuals to suffer injury or worse in auto versus bicycle accidents. Victims or -- in the event of fatality -- their surviving family members may be entitled to seek compensation for any resulting losses.
