Citizens in the state of Illinois who are thinking about being kidney donors to friends or family members may want to take notice of the following story.
An injury may not be obvious when a workplace accident occurs. The psychological effects of a traumatic on-the-job experience can take time to manifest and diagnose. That delay can conflict with Illinois workers' compensation and insurance rules that impose deadlines on applications for workers' compensation benefits' claims.
Few are so lucky following an incident resulting in a concussion. One man who suffered a traumatic brain injury six years ago found afterwards that he suffered from headaches and had impaired hearing. But the strange thing was that he also suddenly became a full-fledged musical genius, which he had not been before. Many people in Illinois and nationwide who have heard his story marvel at it.
Defects or malfunctions in vehicles can cause serious injuries or even death for motorists and their passengers. In Illinois and elsewhere, this has frequently resulted in a product liability lawsuit. In one case, a 59-year-old driver seemed to have escaped from a six-car pileup relatively uninjured, only to tragically die much later from deadly fumes he breathed in from his air bag when it properly deployed to protect him during the collision.
When a person's loved one is in an Illinois nursing home, the family should pay close attention to the conditions of the nursing home and how their loved one is being treated. If you lodge a complaint with the administration and do not see an improvement, notify the authorities or take legal action, as the nursing home abuse is likely to be affecting all residents.
