What if an Illinois employer refuses to pay workers' comp?

The Illinois workers' compensation system is in place to help employees who have been injured on the job stay on their feet financially until they can return to work. However, there will be times when an employee believes he or she is not being paid the benefits to which he or she is entitled.

How long does one have to file a products liability lawsuit?

It is an unfortunate fact that defective products will slip through the cracks and wind up in the hands of innocent consumers. Illinois consumers injured by a defective product may first be concerned with regaining their health. Depending on the type of injury, this could be a lengthy and costly process. Therefore, individuals who suffer a serious injury due to a defective product might want to pursue a products liability lawsuit against the seller, manufacturer, or the designer of the product in hopes of recovering compensation for their damages. However, individuals in this situation need to understand that they only have a certain amount of time in which to file suit.

Truck accidents are rarely minor affairs

Semi-trucks are an important part of commerce in Illinois, but it is undeniable that these imposing vehicles need to be handled with care. In fact, it takes special training to operate a semi-truck, and truck drivers are obligated to follow federal trucking regulations and take due care while behind the wheel.

Can truck companies be held responsible for truck accidents?

Many truck accidents are devastating affairs. When one of these behemoths crashes into a smaller automobile, it is usually the smaller automobile and the occupants inside that suffer the worst. When this happens, it is important to hold the right parties responsible. Of course, the driver of the truck may be responsible for the accident, but in some cases the truck company may also be held liable.

Product recall involves millions of packages of frozen food

Whether it is heating frozen vegetables in the microwave for a quick dinner side dish or blending frozen fruit into a morning smoothie, many people in Illinois consume frozen vegetables and fruits on a regular basis. However, these individuals should be wary, as an enormous recall has been issued of packaged frozen vegetables and fruits manufactured by CFR Frozen Foods after it was found that these foods were contaminated with the bacteria listeria. The foods in question were manufactured as far back as two years ago and were distributed to every state of the nation, including Illinois.
