Did one of these things cause your slip-and-fall accident?

It happened; you slipped and fell and suffered injuries. At first, you just felt embarrassed by it. Then the pain started to set in. As it turns out, your slip-and-fall accident ended up costing you a lot, physically, financially and emotionally. According to Illinois laws, you may not have to carry these losses on your own if negligence contributed to your injuries.

Slip-and-fall accidents can happen anywhere, and a number of factors can contribute to them. It does not matter if your incident occurred on private property, commercial property or government property; if one of the following issues contributed to your fall, you may have legal recourse.

Interstate auto accidents can prove fatal

Though many people utilize the interstate because it offers quicker ways to get to their destinations, it is not unusual for traffic on these roadways to cause issues. In some cases, vehicles can come to a standstill, and if drivers approaching the slowed or stopped traffic do not adjust their speed, it is common for auto accidents to take place. Unfortunately, some of these incidents can prove fatal.

It was recently reported that a crash on Interstate 70 in Illinois had a fatal outcome. According to reports, traffic had come to a stop in the right-hand lane of the roadway due to construction. The driver of an approaching vehicle did not adjust his speed as he came upon the stopped traffic, and as a result, his vehicle collided with the rear of another vehicle driven by a 68-year-old man.

What are the signs of a brain injury?

Traumatic brain injuries are often caused by collisions involving cars, pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists. Injuries are usually caused by a violent blow to the head, such as someone hitting a dashboard, windshield or other solid objects.

Brain injuries can be mild, moderate, or severe and come with an array of physical and psychological effects. Concussions, post-concussion syndrome, brain hemorrhaging, and hematomas are all types of traumatic brain injuries. Symptoms can show up immediately after a crash, while others can take days or weeks to show up. Recovery from TBIs depends on the severity and the person. Sometimes they are temporary and other times, they are permanent.

Suffering a head injury in a collision warrants calling an attorney immediately. Kaiser Hafezi Law can hanlde your case. Call us at 630-274-4400.

Faced with a misdiagnosis: What should you do?

CBS News reports that nearly 12 million Americans receive an incorrect diagnosis each year. This is an alarming number, especially since we put our trust in medical professionals to help us heal. 

Sadly, most people do not report their misdiagnosis since there is no easy way to do so. That is why many people wonder: what should they do if they think their doctor gave them an inaccurate diagnosis?

How effective are helmets in a motorcycle accident?

Motorcycles usually face more risks in an auto accident than any other motorist on the road. Since motorcycles are smaller and expose riders to the elements, a crash can be devastating and life-changing.

There are ways that motorcyclists can protect themselves on the road, though some of those protections can spark a huge debate.

Is your driving better or worse when your kids are in the car?

Many parents believe they are better drivers when their kids are in the car. This may seem logical because most parents want to protect their children at all costs. However, distracted driving is still a problem for many families, and sometimes parents do not even realize they are doing it.

Do you frequently break up sibling squabbles or tend to a fussy baby as you drive? Is your rear-view mirror directed at your backseat instead of the road behind you? Do you distribute snacks, collect trash, or fix the DVD player while driving? If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, you are not alone. However, these and other distractions could be putting you and your children at risk.

Also, sadly, in 2018, Chicago Police reported an increase in hit-and-run accidents, and nationwide they are at historic highs.

In the moments after a hit-and-run crash, you'll be in shock-still processing what just happened. The next steps you take are crucial because you never know when a hit-and-run driver could leave you or a loved one severely injured in an accident.

Three mistakes that can damage your workers' comp claim

Suffering an injury at your Bensenville employer can be a shock. Whether you suffer a fall on a construction site, a repetitive stress injury at a factory or more, you may wonder how to make ends meet while you recover.

In Illinois, most employers must provide employees with access to workers’ compensation benefits after an injury at work leaves them unable to fulfill their job duties for weeks, months or even permanently. However, the process to recover such benefits can be complicated and lengthy. Read on to learn of several common mistakes made throughout the process of submitting a workers’ comp claim:
