Medical malpractice: a notably complex legal niche

No reasonable person in Illinois or elsewhere expects medical care providers to be perfect. We know that doctors, nurses, pharmacists, lab techs and other industry principals, while highly trained, are not infallible.

What we do rightly expect of them, though, is competence and their adherence to an established standard of care that prevails in the health care community.

Impassioned, proven legal help across the vast personal injury realm

Some law firms spotlight their focused commitment to personal injury victims, yet their advocacy may be tempered by multiple practice areas competing for attention.

Kaiser Hafezi Law is not one of those firms.

Follow these tips to stay safe in road construction zones

Many people say the Midwest has two seasons: winter and road construction. You probably dislike the rough condition of the roads after the snow melts. Yet, if you’re like most drivers, you might also get upset about the efforts dedicated to making necessary repairs.

You know you can’t have things both ways, although you might get upset about the temporary inconvenience of work zones, regardless of crews’ attempts to maintain safe roadways. However, while road construction often slows down traffic for a bit, there are some ways you should increase your safety, and that of those around you, in work areas.

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.
