Who is at fault in your accident with a big rig?

Many large trucks clog the Illinois highways, bearing down on passenger cars sharing the roads with them. It is easy to see why when they inevitably tangle together, the drivers of the smaller vehicles often suffer catastrophic injuries. The disparity in the size and weight is just too great for a good outcome.

Exploring the potential safety of self-driving tractor-trailers

Tractor-trailers continue to be the most relied-upon mode for transporting freight in most American states. Although some freight is now delivered by air, rail and marine transports, tractor-trailer cargo transport continues to reign supreme. Illinois residents can attest to the predominant use of land-based freight transportation by the large numbers of tractor-trailers on the roadways. Naturally, this leads to growing concern about truck accidents, which are particularly devastating in many cases.

Illinois work-related deaths and survivors' benefits

Losing a loved one in a work-related death is a tragedy that will stay with survivors forever. While nothing can replace their loved one, it is important to understand that immediate family members may be entitled to benefits for any losses associated with the family member's death. These benefits are provided through the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission and typically cover funeral and burial expenses.
