Bolingbrook Bus Crash Injures 9

On June 18, 2018, around 7:10 p.m., a Pace bus crashed with a passenger car on Boughton Road and Winston Drive in Bolingbrook, Illinois. Bolingbrook police are still investigating the cause of the crash, but the police reported that the bus struck a tree due to the crash.

Who is responsible if your child is injured in a neighbor’s yard?

You have taught your child to respect other people’s property and not to trespass, but like many children, your child is curious about her surroundings. While playing outside, she went with friends to explore your neighbor’s interesting yard and sustained an injury. Your neighbor says that the children should not have been trespassing, which you understand, but you also know that he has a large amount of dangerous equipment on his property and has not enclosed it with a fence. Like other Illinois residents facing a similar situation, you may wonder if your neighbor shares some of the responsibility.

American Cancer Society: Screen earlier for colorectal cancer

Like many people in Illinois and across the country, you may worry about getting cancer. Therefore, you make sure to schedule your screening checkups at the appropriate times. While you are approaching middle age, you may think you don’t have to worry yet about getting a colonoscopy or other routine exams that screen for colon and rectal cancers, since these cancers are not known to run in your family. However, the American Cancer Society has recently changed its guidelines on the age to start screening for colorectal cancer.

Falls: When an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure

Falls are one of the most common causes of serious injury and death across the United States. Whether the fall occurred at home or at work, this accident can result in life-changing injuries, especially for older Illinois residents.

SUMMER MONTHS PRESENT GREATER RISK TO MOTORCYCLE RIDERS

As the weather heats up, more riders will jump on their motorcycles and hit the road. With the increase of motorcycle riders on the roads, there is also an increase in the amount of crashes that occur involving motorcycles. The summer months of June, July and August are when most motorcycle crashes happen, and Saturdays are the most dangerous days to ride. Motorcyclists are more vulnerable on the road and are more likely to be injured or killed than car occupants. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health, motorcycle crash injuries are most common among young men on rural roads in the summer. Drivers of cars need to be extra cautious this summer to ensure the safety of motorcyclists. Motorcyclists are entitled to the same rights and safety protections as drivers of cars.
