b2ap3_thumbnail_ferocious-dogs-DuPage-County.jpgMillions of households across the United States enjoy the affection and company of a beloved family pet. Many families consider them as an extension of their family, just like another child in the house. Pets are given all the creature comforts making them a familiar domestic presence throughout neighborhoods.

The downside to dog ownership is when they attack. A dog that bites someone, often a young person, can unleash a series of horrific injuries—if not death. About 4.5 million dog bites occur each year and a mauling by a dog can inflict serious injuries to a victim. The reassuring news is, however, that a dog owner can be held responsible for the harm sustained.

A personal injury attorney can represent you in seeking compensation for your injuries and the ensuing pain and suffering. Do not suffer in silence when you can potentially recover for the negligent actions of an owner of an aggressive dog.

b2ap3_thumbnail_traumatic-brain-injury-DuPage-County.jpgAccording to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and estimated 1.7 million people suffer from traumatic brain injury (TBI) each year. Of those, approximately 52,000 experience fatality. Motor vehicle accidents are the third leading cause of those deaths. Thankfully, science is starting to make some headway in treatments—some of which may save victims that would have otherwise died from their injuries. The following explains further.

Improved Screenings for Injured Victims

Lack of early detection is one of the biggest reasons that TBIs become fatal. This is exactly why science has started focusing on methods for earlier and better detection. For example, rather than search for a brain hemorrhage in a CT scan, some victims might be better served through biomarker testing. MRIs may also be used to better detect if a victim has experienced mild traumatic brain injury. This can reduce the risk that less severe cases are missed, which can, in turn, reduce the risk for secondary injuries that could easily become life-threatening.

b2ap3_thumbnail_slip-and-fall-injury-DuPage-County.jpgAlthough a slip and fall injury can occur at almost any time of the year, winter can be an especially busy season for emergency room doctors. Often, this is because the dropping temperatures create more ice and snow in parking lots, on sidewalks, and in entrance and exit areas. Learn what you can do to avoid injury, and how to protect rights, should a slip and fall happen to you or someone you love when winter weather strikes.

Give Yourself Extra Time

Whether you are headed to the office, off to a doctor’s appointment, or simply out running errands, it is always a good idea to give yourself extra time during the winter season. This makes you less likely to rush and more likely to see patches of ice or debris that might be covering icy surfaces. Going slower also decreases your risk of experiencing a severe injury, should you end up missing a patch of ice or slick snow.

b2ap3_thumbnail_premises-liability-DuPage-County.jpgSidewalks are frequently used in large metropolitan cities and communities. Moreover, if you shop at a stand-alone store, a strip mall, or even a large scale mall, you are likely to traverse a sidewalk somewhere on those premises.

While you may take for granted the bee-line to get into a store, you are at risk for serious harm if the business owner does the same and neglects to maintain his or her premises. Land owners must keep their sidewalks in a reasonable safe condition—a condition that would not cause injury to a pedestrian. If sidewalks are not kept safe, owners may be held accountable for injuries caused by unsafe conditions.

If you have been injured on a defective sidewalk, contact an experienced premises liability attorney to assess your rights and how to proceed further to potentially receive compensation for your injuries.
