DuPage County dog bite injury lawyers, dog bite injuryNews stories about dog bite injuries are reported nearly daily. One of the most recent involves a young man who was attacked by a pit bull while collecting money for the D.A.R.E. drug program. He will need plastic surgery to repair his lip, and his face may very well be scarred for life. Tragic as his story is, it is unlikely that he was the only victim that day. In fact, statistics indicate that as many as 1,000 U.S. citizens per day are treated in an emergency room for a dog bite injury. Many will face expensive medical bills, therapies, and lost time from work. What kind of compensatory recourse do they have? 

Dog Bite Injury Victim’s Right to Compensation

In the state of Illinois, victims may be owed compensation if a dog or other animal bites them, without provocation, and causes injury. Sought from the owner of the animal, this compensation may include damages for a victim’s:

DuPage County personal injury lawyer, pedestrians hit by carsWhen it comes to road users, pedestrians are the most vulnerable in automobile crashes. Unable to move quickly and completely unprotected, pedestrians are also at higher risk for injury.

The types of injuries pedestrians experience typically depend upon the speed of the driver, age of the victim, and other factors. However, one recent study determined that pedestrians are most at risk for fracture, fatality, and head injuries. What does this mean for victims and their families? The following explains.

Dog bites occur every 75 seconds in the United States. Each day, over 1,000 citizens require emergency medical care to treat these injuries. Moreover, children are often the ones who suffer the most horrific injuries from dog attacks, including mauling which tears at the skin and can disfigure a little body for life. The emotional scarring runs deep and can involve lasting effects.

DuPage County personal injury lawyers, slip and fall injury, knee injuryAccording to information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly three million Americans suffer a slip and fall injury each year. Though most commonly associated with traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and broken bones, these slip and fall accidents can injure many different parts of the body. Some of these injuries might seem minor—knee injuries, for example. Yet new research suggests that these victims could end up suffering ill effects for the rest of their lives.

Knee Cartilage Regrowth Efforts Unsuccessful

Researchers have been studying the cartilage regrowth in knees for some time now. One study showed that it simply never happens. In fact, even attempts to induce regrowth were unsuccessful. They used a multitude of approaches—using everything from stem cells to grafts of healthy cartilage—but were still unable to detect any regrowth in the knees of 22 different patients. The short lesson is to take care of your knees—guard them and protect them because an injury can last a lifetime. What happens, though, when the injury is not your fault?

DuPage County personal injury attorney, slips, trips and fallsSlips, trips, and falls can happen to anyone at any age. They are the leading cause of injury-related death among the elderly, and a recent study on falls among college undergraduates showed that 58 percent experienced some sort of slip, trip, or fall over the course of 16 weeks. Moreover, data from the National Floor Safety Institute shows that falls account for 21.3 percent of all emergency room visits (approximately eight million visits per year), making it the leading reason people visit. So, whether you are at home, work, or play, it is important to know how to best avoid them.

Common Causes of Slips, Trips, and Falls

Despite common theory, slips, trips, and falls typically occur on the same level, not stairways or other elevated surfaces. Common causes include debris (power cords, clutter, loose rugs, etc.) and surfaces that are either slick or uneven (ice, snow, water, etc.). Improper footwear, failure to use safety devices such as handrails, and distracted walking can also be contributing factors. To prevent falls from these causes:
