A head-on collision between a bus and a semi-truck claimed two lives in Illinois on an early December day in 2018. The driver of the truck and a passenger on the bus involved in the accident lost their lives, and other passengers on the bus suffered injuries that required medical attention. Just recently, the widow of the bus victim who died in the crash filed a lawsuit claiming losses for his wrongful death.
Accidents happen everywhere, but when they occur at work individuals may have the right to recover compensation for their losses. In Illinois, hurt workers may be able to secure financial support through workers' compensation claims when their injuries are suffered while they are doing their jobs. This post offers some guidance on steps workers may want to take after getting hurt on-the-job but should not be substituted for individual legal guidance.
Illinois motorists commit grave errors every day on the road. Fortunately, in the vast majority of cases, making a serious mistake doesn't result in a crash. However, when you commit errors and do dangerous things on the road again and again, eventually it could result in a catastrophic or fatal incident.
