Personal injury: Head-on crash in Illinois results in injuries

Illinois motorists have to be careful to ignore the distractions around them more than ever. Prior to the ability of drivers to have access to mobile phones, distractions in and around a vehicle were still an issue, but smartphones  undoubtedly add a dangerous distraction. A momentary glance at a text message, maps application or answering a phone call can result in serious property damage and/or personal injury. It is unclear what may have led to a recent serious accident, but accident reconstructionists will likely investigate whether a cell phone was in use just prior to the accident.

Personal injury: 3 injured in multi-vehicle wreck

Because school is out, it is good timing for construction on Illinois roadways to increase. Although traffic is often less than during the school year, traffic still must occur on roadways under construction. Careful non-distracted driving must occur in order to maintain the safety of all drivers and workers in a construction zone. It is easy to become distracted when traffic slows down, and this can result in serious personal injury and property damage. Unfortunately, three individuals discovered how much damage can occur after they suffered injuries in a recent multi-vehicle wreck.

Workers' compensation: Woman suffers fatal injuries on job site

Some accidents are beyond an individual's control. When an accident results in death, surviving family members are left scrambling to make burial plans, financing the burial and caring for minor children. When an accident occurs at work, some families may find some financial assistance through Illinois managed workers' compensation. Sadly, a woman's family in another state may be taking advantage of benefits after she suffered fatal injuries while at work.

Construction workers' accidents continue to increase

Despite safety gear and a safe job sites, work site fatalities continue to occur in Illinois and across the country. A recent construction accident in a nearby state has resulted in an expert raising an alarm about the number of construction workers' accidents that occur nationwide. The accident was related to a fall on the job site that resulted in two deaths and another injury.
