Providing broad scope of personal injury legal experience

We live in an era of specialization. Football teams have special squads. In health care, there are insurance plans that seek to manage the care process in hopes that costs can be kept under control. Just what the level of management should be and how well it works remains the subject of a lot of debate here in Central Illinois and across the country.

How common are work deaths among truck drivers?

When a car and a tractor-trailer truck collide, one generally expects the car and its driver to come out on the wrong end of the stick in terms of injuries or death. Statistics suggest that expectation is reasonable. And when you think about workers dying on the job, most in Illinois probably don't put truck drivers high on the list.

'Dog days:' Ancient phrase with meaning for farm workers today

It's hot out. That's to be expected. It's summer across the country, including here in central Illinois. Folks often call these the "dog days." While it's commonly thought that the phrase came into being to describe days so hot that even dogs couldn't bring themselves to stir, its roots are actually more astronomical.

Illinois torts deal with injury compensation, not sweet treats

Tort reform is something that many in central Illinois may have probably heard of. The subject is not about finding new ways to bake a strawberry delicacy. It has to do with the legal remedies that may be available to individuals to receive essential compensation after suffering catastrophic injury.

What responsibilities might I have as an accident victim?

If you have suffered injury in an accident due to someone else's negligence, you have a right to seek due compensation for the pain, suffering and financial losses you suffer. The key word in that first sentence may well be "due." In the legal context it usually means what is suitable, appropriate or correct for the circumstances of a given case.

If it doesn't cost to be informed, why not consult an attorney?

One of the most common concerns that anyone might have after becoming the victim of an accident in Illinois is whether they should consult with an attorney. It's a fair question to ask if you presume that hiring an attorney always requires an up-front outlay of cash. But that often is not the case.

Powerful machinery and lagging safety make farms hazardous

Farming has long been recognized as a hazardous industry. However, while federal and Illinois law, insurers, workers and employers all push to enforce rules that improve workplace safety across most industries, many experts say there is a general lack of focus on the family farm.
