Who is at fault for slip-and-fall injuries?

Every day, Peoria residents step onto property owned by others for a variety of reasons. They may be visiting a friend at an apartment complex, shopping at the grocery store or even just walking on a local sidewalk. Property owners, store owners, landlords and even the government may be responsible for ensuring that their property is reasonably safe for invitees. If an invitee slips and falls on someone else's property due to a dangerous condition, one or more of these parties may be held liable for the invitee's injuries.

Distracted driving makes the roads more dangerous

Do you feel like the roads should be far safer than they are? Maybe you learned that tens of thousands of Americans die every single year in car crashes. You cannot believe how little press these overall numbers get, seeing as how they make driving the most dangerous thing most people do on a daily basis. How could things be so bad in 2019, when we have so much technology and development focused on auto safety?

What causes truck accidents?

Truck accidents in Illinois can occur for a number of different reasons. In some cases, a truck driver's negligent or passenger vehicle driver's negligent actions cause the accident. In other cases, the trucking company that owns the truck and employs the driver is responsible for the accident by failing to adhere to state and federal trucking regulations. In fact, many truck accidents are caused by both negligent drivers and negligent trucking companies. Victims of truck accidents can file lawsuits against these negligent parties and recover damages for their medical expenses and other accident-related costs.
