Woman files lawsuit over the death of her husband in bus crash

Sometimes, life deals us unexpected blows. A perfectly normal day could suddenly be bleak when a loved one passes away, for example. In those situations, the last thing you want to have to worry about is lawsuits or who is to blame. You're only worried about yourself and the loss you're dealing with.

The thing to remember when a loved one is killed by another party is that you do have rights in that situation as a victim. You may be able to seek compensation from the party, so you can rest easy knowing that finances are taken care of while you grieve.

Car wrecks can cause impacts in all areas of your life

When you are involved in a car wreck, there are a lot of things that occur. One of the primary concerns that you will initially have is making sure that you didn't suffer any injuries that need to be treated. If you do have something seriously wrong, you have to get to the doctor. In some cases, emergency room care is necessary.

Once you have addressed your injuries, you can focus on minimizing how the accident will impact your future. You may need to do some damage control if you realize that your finances took a hard hit because of the accident. We can help you explore the options you have to seek compensation from any at-fault parties.

Crash on icy Illinois highway leaves 1 dead, 3 injured

A multi-vehicle crash on the Bishop Ford Freeway near South Holland, Illinois, left one man dead and three people injured recently.

The incident occurred on Interstate 94 near 173rd Street, the Illinois State Police reported.

Illinois correctional officer dies in crash, colleague arrested

One Cook County sheriff's correctional officer was killed and another arrested in a three-vehicle crash recently in Woodridge, Illinois.

The crash occurred at Davey and Joliet roads and involved the two men, driving their individual cars, and a light-duty box truck. Few details about the incident were available as police continued to work on reconstructing the accident.

Can you sue after an outdoor accident on ice?

When you were walking into a local business, the last thing you expected was for a patch of ice to lead to a fall. The rest of the walkway was clear, so you didn't even think you'd have to worry about it. Unfortunately, there was a shadow cast on part of the walkway in front of the business you were visiting. Now, you've fallen and gotten hurt.

You're not sure if you should let the business owner know about the fall since it was on the ice. Isn't that a natural occurrence? Wasn't it your own fault that you fell? Legally speaking, it could actually be the business owner's obligation to help you financially.

Claims for truck wreck compensation must be personalized

The effects that a semitruck crash can have on a victim can go far beyond that person. Their entire family might be impacted. It is hard to think about how life will change if someone suffers from a catastrophic injury. There isn't any one single way that will be true across the board. Instead, each situation is different, which is why claims for compensation must be personalized.

We understand that this is a trying time for you. Not only do you have to try to heal from the wreck, but you also have to try to minimize the way that it is impacting your family members. This isn't always easy, especially when your abilities are limited due to the injuries. We are here to help you learn what options you have to seek compensation for this type of case.

Know your rights after dealing with a defective nebulizer

When you need to take medications with the aid of a medical device, the last thing you want to find out is that it's not working or that it does not work as it is supposed to.

For people with asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis or other lung conditions, a nebulizer is a common medical tool. It forces air through a small rubber tube and into a mouthpiece filled with medications. The medications are then broken up by the ultrasonic waves of compressed air. Medications become aerosol droplets, which then can be inhaled.

What causes trucks to jackknife?

Jackknifing is one of the most dangerous things that can happen on a highway. When a jackknife occurs, the driver of a truck loses control of the trailer. The trailer swings wide, crossing lanes of traffic and blocking them. This sometimes leads to the truck crashing onto its side.

Jackknifing doesn't often happen because most drivers are taught what to do to drive out of them or to correct them. However, if a driver truly loses control, this type of mistake could cost multiple people their lives or lead to many injuries.

What you need to know about recent blood pressure drug recalls

It can be hard to keep up-to-date on all the recalls happening here in the United States. It seems like there are always new auto parts recalls — and then there's the romaine debacle. It's dangerous, it's back on the shelf, now it might be safe as long as it's not from a certain farming region.

It's enough to make consumers' heads spin. But consumers have choices when it comes to the cars they drive and the foods they consume. But when it comes to the life-preserving medications they take, patients typically have far fewer options, which is why the latest blood pressure drug recalls is especially disconcerting.

Treat every slip-and-fall accident seriously

Slip-and-fall accidents are serious matters that must be treated accordingly. One thing that you have to remember is that these kinds of accidents can lead to devastating injuries, even though a "simple fall" might not sound too serious at first.

The way that a person's body hits the ground in a fall -- and that person's age and health -- has a lot to do with how injured they become. For example, people who are elderly often have fragile bones. Because their bones are so fragile, an elderly person is more likely to suffer broken bones in a simple fall than someone who is younger. A fall on a sidewalk might not hurt a healthy adult much -- while an elderly person might suffer from a fractured hip, which is a devastating injury that can really impair mobility and affect someone's quality of life. Other serious injuries also often occur from ordinary falls. These can include brain injuries, spinal cord damage, sprains, strains and neck injuries.
