4 signs of distracted driving

Day or night, driving through Chicago can be a dangerous undertaking. You might have to share the road with drunk drivers, angry drivers, distracted drivers and others who are completely reckless. While it is sometimes hard to tell what kind of driver is next to you, behind you or in front of you, there are some indicators that you might clue you in. For instance, if a car is drifting back and forth in the lanes and it is midnight, there is a good chance that the driver is drunk.

Injured railroad worker? You have rights

As a Chicago railroad worker, you know that there are constant hazards that you have to watch out for while on the job. In the early days of railroading, the occupation was so dangerous that the United States eventually passed the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) in 1908. The Act is still in place and provides protections for thousands of railroad employees and their families. In general, FELA provides a legal option for recovering medical expenses and lost wages that result from rail workers' injuries.

How your cellphone can help after a serious car accident

Safety after a serious car accident was one of the driving factors that popularized cellphones. No matter where you are or how bad the accident may be, you have the option of contacting emergency services right away. For parents of young drivers, knowing their child was carrying a phone was a source of comfort.

Preserving evidence after an injury

When you are in a slip and fall accident at a business, one of the first things you need to do is to get medical attention for any injuries. According to the CDC, about 20 percent of all falls cause a serious injury, for example a broken bone or head injury. The business may have paperwork that you will need to complete to turn into their insurance company, but your health needs to come first. Once you have received medical attention, you can turn your energy toward preserving and gathering evidence if you believe negligence caused your fall.
