How does your uninsured and underinsured motorist insurance protect you?

What happens in car accidents where you are injured but the person who caused the crash has no insurance coverage or not enough insurance to cover your damages? If you have uninsured (UM) and underinsured (UIM) coverage as part of your car insurance plan you can have another way to receive additional compensation for your injuries.

How long do I have to file a car accident injury case?

For cases involving car accidents, there is a deadline called the "statute of limitations" that sets the maximum amount of time you have to file a lawsuit. That amount of time will vary depending on the specific facts of your case. Because each case is unique, it is important you immediately consult with an attorney who can evaluate your legal situation and determine the exact deadline that applies to your case.

Wrongful death suit filed against employer of man killed by swan

We often think of workplace accidents with regards to machinery incidents, transportation crashes or even construction-related falls. The fatal accidents that involve biological causes are often overlooked, however. Workers may be injured or killed when they encounter wildlife on the job. That is exactly what happened to one Illinois man who drowned after he was attacked by a swan at a pond he was tending. That incident occurred two years ago; now, the man's wife is seeking financial damages in connection with his wrongful death.

Motorcycle accidents more common in spring months

As the temperatures begin to climb in our northern clime, a growing number of motorcyclists are again taking to the streets in Illinois. With that resurgence, though, comes some sobering statistics; dozens of motorcycle riders die every year on Illinois roads because or preventable motorcycle accidents. In fact, motorcycle riders are about 35 times more likely to die in a roadway accident than those behind the wheel of a car. Both riders and drivers need to take responsibility for motorcycle safety throughout the upcoming fair-weather season.

Driver faces DUI allegations after fatal expressway car accident

A 21-year-old man is facing aggravated DUI and murder charges, among other accusations, after allegedly causing a fatal crash while racing another driver.

The fatal car accident occurred when the defendant rear-ended the 26-year-old male victim's vehicle during the early morning hours on March 30.
