Personal Injury

Lombard personal injury lawyerContrary to popular belief, slip and fall injuries in the workplace occur throughout the entire year, not just in winter. Though ice, snow, and adverse weather conditions can make slips and falls more likely to occur without proper precaution, many slip and falls accidents occur within the controlled environments of indoor offices. A common cause of slip and fall injuries is wet, slippery floors without proper signage of the hazard. Wet floors are not the only everyday materials that can cause such injuries. Improperly anchored carpet or extension cords and freshly mopped and waxed flooring can cause employees to lose balance, resulting in minor to serious injuries. Controlled office environments may not be absent from such dangerous conditions, but some occupations bring a higher risk of injury than others.

Industries with High Incidences of Workplace Injury

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that falls, slips, and trips accounted for 14 percent of all fatal workplace injuries in Illinois in 2018. It is also the third most common type of workplace fatality. Though injuries in the workplace are generally evenly distributed across industries and occupations, there are several outliers that exceed the average rates. The following are occupations in which workers may be at a higher risk for a fall, slip, or trip:

  • Farmers, ranchers, and other agricultural managers, who alone accounted for 9 percent of all workplace injuries in 2018.

Lombard, IL car accident attorney speeding

The roads in Illinois -- especially those closer to larger cities such as Chicago -- are rarely empty. They are usually teeming with cars full of people trying to get to work, school, appointments, and everywhere else. Lately, however, the roads have been much less crowded -- and noticeably so. This was to be expected because of the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the country. Illinois issued a stay-at-home order in mid-March that prohibited non-essential travel and work, which greatly cut down on vehicles on the road. Despite the drop in traffic, the number of speeding tickets and speeding-related accidents has increased greatly. An Illinois car accident injury lawyer can assist you with pursuing compensation if you are injured in a vehicle crash caused by speeding.

Traffic Fatalities Increase in Illinois

Most people know that speed is one of the factors that can increase the severity of a car accident. Typically, the faster the speed you are traveling at when you get into the accident, the more severe the damages are. A speed-related car accident can cause serious injuries to yourself and your passengers, including broken bones, spinal cord damage, brain damage, and even death in some instances.

DuPage County chain-reaction car accident attorney

Being in a car accident involving multiple vehicles can be an extremely frightening experience, especially if you are injured in the accident. Crashes with numerous automobiles, also known as chain reaction accidents, can end up causing relatively serious injuries such as broken bones, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, or even death in some cases. Chain reaction accidents typically involve three or more vehicles that collide, which was initially caused by one primary incident, often a rear-end collision. Chain reaction accidents are often chaotic and occur quickly, which is one of the reasons why it can be difficult to determine who is at fault for the accident. Recovering compensation from the accident can be tricky, which is why experienced legal counsel can help.   

Determining Fault in a Chain Reaction Accident

In most car accidents, there are typically only one or two cars involved, meaning there are only one or two parties who can be held responsible. When it comes to chain reaction accidents, determining who is at fault for the accident can be difficult because of the increased number of parties involved. Chain reaction accidents can actually result in multiple parties being held responsible for your injuries.

Bloomingdale auto accident attorney

According to the National Safety Council (NSC), Americans only do about one-quarter of their driving during nighttime hours. However, these same night hours are when around half of all traffic-related deaths occur. Nighttime driving is not something that can always be avoided. There are a variety of factors that are often present that increase the dangers of driving at night, some of which are in the motorist’s control, and some of which are not. For example, there tend to be more intoxicated and/or fatigued drivers on the road at night than there are during the day. If you have been involved in a nighttime car accident, you should reach out to a personal injury attorney to discuss your options for seeking damages.

Staying Safe When You Are On the Road at Night

One of the biggest obstacles that a driver faces at night is the darkness itself. This increases the chances that a motorist will not see an obstacle in his or her path and end up not having enough time to stop or veer out of the way. Because driving at night is so much more dangerous than driving during the day, there are steps you should take to make sure you are being as safe as possible:

Bloomingdale car accident attorney emotional trauma

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 6.7 million vehicle crashes occur each year, resulting in more than 36,000 deaths and 2.7 million people injured. Studies have found that the most common cause of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in the general population is car accidents. In fact, a study conducted by the National Institute of Mental Health found that nearly 40 percent of survivors of motor vehicle accidents developed PTSD. Following a collision, you may not only suffer from emotional trauma, but you likely will also experience physical injuries, in addition to extensive damage to your vehicle. If you have been a victim of a car accident, you should speak with an Illinois personal injury lawyer right away.

Signs and Symptoms of Emotional Trauma

Getting into a car accident is a major event for anyone involved. It is completely normal for you to feel a range of emotions after the accident, especially after the adrenaline wears off. You may immediately recognize some of these feelings, but it may take days or even months to notice the full effects of the crash. Common signs of emotional trauma after an automobile collision include:
