A recently published breakdown of how the state of medical malpractice suits in each of the 50 states, including Illinois, revealed this state is in what some might see as an unusual position of having relatively few medical negligence actions filed but, on the other hand, offering those that do file suits the strong possibility of getting complete and just compensation for their injuries.

Representation for victims of skiing and other injuries

Last week's post on this blog discussed how Chicago-area residents can take precautions while skiing, either at one of Illinois' commercial ski slopes or simply while going cross-country out in the rural areas of the state.

Tips to avoid skiing injuries

Although people might not think about Illinois as snow skiing country, there are in fact several places in which Chicago residents can go within the state in order to enjoy the ski slopes.

The uncertainty regarding certain legislation has created anxiety in Chicago residents as well as others.
