Construction workers' accidents: Worker killed by fallen pole

Despite safety measures, construction sites in Illinois and across the country are dangerous work environments. The amount of crew required, the large equipment and sometimes unstable locations as areas are developed can result in accidents. Unfortunately, because of the nature of the work site, construction workers' accidents can result in serious and fatal accidents. One worker in another state lost his life while working with a crew to install a light pole.

Personal injury: 10-vehcile crash results in injury and death

Despite warnings and education about the dangers, people continually drive distracted. Typically people are distracted by their phones, but they can also have their attention diverted by passengers, food and other activities. Recently, 10 vehicles crashed on an Illinois roadway, and it is likely the result of a distracted semitruck driver. Serious personal injury and one fatality occurred.

Personal injury: 4 injured in multi-vehicle crash

Car accidents are unfortunately a common occurrence throughout Illinois. Many accidents are the result of negligent actions of a driver. Those who can walk away from a collision with no injuries are fortunate, but many suffer serious injuries that can impact a person's way of life temporarily or permanently. Unexpected medical bills quickly follow any unexpected injury. Four travelers recently suffered personal injury after a multi-vehicle collision.

Construction workers' accidents: Many suffer serious head injury

Safety procedures, policies and equipment are a worker's best friend when on a job site. To remain in compliance with regulatory agencies, most employers must perform regular safety training sessions with employees. Despite increased safety awareness, serious construction workers' accidents still occur in Illinois. Ironically, one serious accident occurred minutes following a safety meeting on a job site.
