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.

Incident with Chicago woman shows suddenness of some dog attacks

Most people who go on walks or hikes rarely consider the possibility of a dog attack occurring out of nowhere. Unfortunately for many in Illinois and across the country, this type of scenario is a possibility. People and other pets can be bitten by dogs that are under the control of their owners, but sometimes dangerous dogs are loose on the streets with no owner in sight. When this happens, the results can be devastating.

Is your television a danger to your children?

You may have heard of the negative effects of letting your children watch too much TV. However, the programming is not the only thing you need to look out for.

Payless shoe store accident ends in child’s death

When parents take their children out to run errands or have fun, the last thing they expect is for something to go wrong and their children to end up in the hospital or lose their lives. Sadly, accidents occur and families lose loved ones during everyday situations. Consumers in Illinois and elsewhere should understand that if an accident was preventable, store owners or other negligent parties could be held responsible for their expenses and pain and suffering.

What must I prove in a wrongful death suit?

As FindLaw explains, the personal representative of your loved one’s estate can file a wrongful death claim for many reasons, such as medical malpractice, a vehicular accident, a workplace injury or someone’s criminal behavior.

What do I need to know about space heater safety?

This winter, you will want to be comfortably warm in your home while keeping your heating bill down. Space heaters are an effective way to achieve both ends – they are known for making small areas toasty warm and are cost-effective to run. However, it is important for you and others in Illinois to know that there are right and wrong ways to operate space heaters – and sometimes, despite taking the necessary precautions, a space heater is simply not safe to use at all.
