Can I pursue damages if police faulted me for the car crash?

Whenever a catastrophic motor vehicle accident results in serious injuries, the victims of the crash should investigate whether they have the legal right to pursue financial damages relating to the costs associated with medical care and other damages caused by the incident. Even individuals who were allegedly at fault for a particular crash should take action to ensure that they don't have any legal options to pursue compensation.

Provocation and trespassing can affect victims' dog bite cases

Illinois courts apply a strict liability standard in almost all dog bite and animal attack cases. That means that a dog owner is liable for any harm that their dog causes, regardless of whether the owner had any reason to know that the dog was potentially dangerous or prone to biting. However, there are two exceptions that may derail a victim's path to recovery under this theory of law: provocation and trespassing.

Hurt on the job? Know your options for compensation

Accidents and injuries are relatively common in the lives of Illinois residents. They may suffer from moments of clumsiness that leave them with minor injuries or they may be involved in serious incidents like vehicle accidents that threaten their future health. When accidents happen while individuals are performing their job duties, they may have to leave work and seek medical treatment for their injuries. Depending upon how severe the injuries are, the victim may be unable to return to work for days or even weeks.
