When medical care leaves victims with losses

It is not uncommon for individuals to trust the men and women who provide them with medical care. Throughout Illinois, residents seek out doctors and other medical care providers who they like and with whom they can work to protect their health. Most people have the option of changing doctors if they are unsatisfied with the care they receive, and therefore it is not often the case that individuals are tied to providers that they do not trust.

Dog attacks can inflict serious injuries on victims

The domestic dogs that many Illinois residents keep are often considered members of their respective families. Most individuals cannot imagine life without their four-legged friends, and those who do have dogs may go out of their way to include their dogs in their daily lives. Well-trained and controlled dogs can enrich the lives of those who love them, but when dog owners fail to take responsibility for the actions and behaviors that their canine companions' exhibit, devastating attacks can result in serious injuries.

Medical mistakes can mean major problems for victims

Receiving a damaging diagnosis can be traumatic for anyone. If an Illinois resident is told that they have a serious condition like cancer, they may feel a flood of emotions as they work to deal with their new reality. Because of the seriousness of their condition and its potential to jeopardize their future, they may put their trust in their doctors to help them regain their health.

Many hazards threaten the safety of construction workers

Not long ago, this Belleville-based personal injury blog posted an article on the dangers that scaffolds pose to men and women who work in the construction industry. While scaffolds are used to assist workers in reaching heights on the projects they must build, those scaffolds can fall or workers can fall from them when they are not secured to them.

Personal injury claims can mean complex litigation

No one can prepare for the unexpected. An accident at work, a collision on the roads, or a botched medical procedure may leave an Illinois resident with pain, loss, and few answers. In their plight to get back to their normal life they may find that they are limited in what they can do. Also, they may not be capable of ever achieving the same level of health that they had prior to their incident. The damages that a person may experience from a personal injury accident can be extensive, pervasive and long-term.

Ways that medical malpractice can impact victims' health

It is rarely fun to go to the doctor, but many Illinois residents see their regular and urgent medical visits as necessary to protect their health and improve their overall wellness. Doctors can often pinpoint ailments and effectively treat them, leaving their patients with improved quality of life and in better condition. However, as with all areas of life, incidents and accidents can occur in the medical field, and in some cases, patients pay the price for their doctors' medical malpractice.

Know your rights after a motorcycle accident

Like car accidents and truck accidents, motorcycle accidents happen regularly on Illinois roadways and cause victims to suffer serious personal injuries. A victim's recovery after a motorcycle crash can be long and painful, and during that time, they may be unable to provide for themselves and their loved ones. Their damages can, therefore, become great as they hope to heal from their trauma.
