How long do you have to file a medical malpractice case?

When a resident of Illinois is sick or injured, they expect that the doctors and nurses taking care of them will do so competently and appropriately. After all, most medical professionals have gone through years of schooling in order to get where they are. However, there is always the chance that something could go wrong.

Speeding truck drivers flaunt safety and break the law

Nowhere is the axiom "time is money" more true than in the trucking industry. Truckers in Aurora often get paid more based on how quickly they can make their deliveries, and the truck companies therefore profit from more deliveries made. However, such a culture can lead truckers to engage in dangerous behaviors, notably speeding.

Agency wants to prevent truck accidents through speeding devices

Due to their sheer weight and size and the laws of physics, speeding semi-trucks have the potential to cause disastrous accidents, causing innocent drivers to suffer serious injuries or even lose their lives. Therefore, Illinois residents may be interested to hear that a rule was recently proposed by the Obama administration that would require semi-truck drivers to install an electronic mechanism on their vehicles that would cap how fast their trucks would be able to operate.

What are some common workers' compensation disputes?

Being injured on the job is an experience no one in Illinois wants to go through. Being injured at work may mean having to take an extended leave to recover, meaning the worker would not be earning any wages. It is for this reason that the workers' compensation system exists. Workers' compensation benefits can be the financial lifeline a worker needs after a workplace accident. However, that doesn't mean that disputes do not arise.

Fewer general practitioners may mean more medical mistakes

Whether it is a minor cold or a major operation, whenever an individual in Illinois seeks medical care, they expect that they will be treated not just competently, but with care and respect. Unfortunately, that does not always happen. In today's busy in-and-out environment, many general practitioners are simply overburdened, underpaid and expected to treat many patients as quickly as possible. This leaves them with little room to truly know their patients. Moreover, specialists may focus more on tests and procedures than on the patients themselves.
