What damages are possible when a fall drive leads to a car crash?

Fall is here, and along with it comes the crisp autumn air and beautiful autumn foliage, making it a popular time to for people in Illinois to take a scenic drive. However, any time of the year that a person takes a drive leaves them vulnerable to accidents caused by negligent drivers. While sometimes these accidents are minor and more of an annoyance than anything else, other times these accidents can be catastrophic.

Settling a workers' compensation dispute is an option for some

When a dispute arises between an employee and employer with regard to workers' compensation, a claim may be filed with the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission. However, many of these cases are ultimately settled by the parties on their own. The Commission refers to such settlements as "settlement contracts," which in essence is an agreement between both parties to close their pending claim with the Commission in exchange for a mutually agreed-upon sum of money.

Attorneys can advocate for those injured by dangerous products

Most residents of Illinois use cell phones to communicate on a daily basis. Many drive automobiles to and from work each day. When they are sick, they take medication, whether prescription or over-the-counter. Their kids enjoy playing with toys made out of wood, plastic or metal. These are all examples of common consumer products that we use regularly, that we assume to be safe. However, as last week's post regarding a recall of smartphones that would catch fire shows, sometimes these products pose a serious danger to consumers.

Galaxy Note 7 smartphones recalled due to fire risk

Smartphone technology advances at an increasingly fast rate, and many people in Illinois eagerly anticipate the release of the newest smartphones on the market. However, sometimes the rush to get a product out on store shelves leads to mistakes in the design or manufacturing process, making the product dangerous to put in the hands of consumers.
