Water birth leads to medical malpractice lawsuit

For Illinois parents who are preparing to add to their family, there are a number of choices to be made concerning virtually every aspect of the pregnancy and birth process. From what to eat to whether or not to take birthing classes, there are innumerable decisions to be considered before the big day arrives. For some, the idea of a water birth may appeal. This is still a controversial choice, however, as one recent medical malpractice lawsuit illustrates.

Truck accident involves two semi-trucks in Illinois

Although there is always risk involved when on the road, some vehicles may have an increased risk of a crash. Larger vehicles, such as semi-trucks, are more difficult to maneuver, which could make them more likely to experience crashes in some instances. Also, the increased mass of a larger vehicle can make a collision particularly destructive and dangerous. This was proved to be true in a recent truck accident in Illinois that resulted in a fatality.

Head-on car accident results in death in Illinois

One of the most important rules of the road is to maintain one's lane when driving. This can help to prevent vehicle collisions, which can result in injury or even prove to be deadly in some cases. Unfortunately, this may have been the case in a recent fatal car accident in Illinois.

Lawmakers typically propose legislation designed to promote safety on the nation's roadways.

Doctor faces two medical malpractice lawsuits

There are some medical doctors who consistently do a good job in treating their patients. However, there are other doctors in Illinois and other states who seem to be more prone to making mistakes for one reason or another. One doctor, who has recently found himself in legal troubles, may be one of these types of doctors. This doctor recently found himself named as a defendant in two medical malpractice lawsuits.

Car accident in Illinois injures 5 people

Danger is always present when driving a vehicle on the road. However, for one reason or another, there are certain roads that are more dangerous than others. This seems to be the case for one specific stretch of road in Illinois, which seems to have a higher chance for drivers to experience a car accident. The portion of road in question has been the site for eight fatal accidents between 2006 and 2012.
