#newarticle: Shortage of Skilled Construction Workers Make Job Sites More Dangerous (http://bit.ly/2WQcXzh)

A huge segment of the #construction worker industry lost their jobs between 2006 and 2009 during the decline of the US economy when the residential housing industry collapsed, and millions lost their homes because they could no longer pay the mortgage attached to rising interest rates.

In the last few years, the need for new houses, remodeled homes, and commercial properties has increased dramatically causing an increasing need to fill an average of 225,000 construction jobs every month.

Because there is a significant decrease in the number of available skill laborers, many contractors are hiring inexperienced workers to ensure their jobs are completed on time. Unfortunately, this has resulted in significant safety concerns about dangerous job sites.

If you've already been hurt at work, you could recover compensation if it was caused by the negligence of the company.

Stay warm and safe! Temperatures in #Chicago were expected to fall into the -20s F (-30s C) again on early Thursday but should warm up to the comparatively balmy 20Fs (-7 to -2C) by Friday. #polarvortex

It is not uncommon for a person to #slipandfall due to winter conditions, especially here in Chicago these days.

These falls usually are not dangerous, many times more humorous than painful. However, not everyone who slips on an icy sidewalk or parking lot is laughing.

Serious injuries can occur, leaving the victim with painful injuries that can result in medical costs, time lost from work and even permanent disabilities. If the fall is caused by the property owner's negligence, they can be liable for injuries.

Defective Medical Device Attorneys (https://goo.gl/jwFGtD)

Unfortunately, there are many cases involving #defectivemedicaldevices.

While the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) attempts to screen medical devices for their effectiveness, they frequently rely upon testing data supplied by drug and medical device manufacturers, which may be biased and inherently incorrect.

Manufacturers often want the financial benefits of these devices, so they sometimes rush getting them to market. Some are not safe and lack long-term testing.

Thousands of consumers are suffering life-changing injuries and even death due to medical devices that are defective and downright dangerous.

These are product liability cases where the injury is caused by a defective product rather than negligence by a medical professional.

If you've been affected by defective devices, contact our attorneys. We will personally review your case and work to get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Call us today (888-424-5757) for a free consultation.

How and Why Wrong-Way Accidents Occur (https://goo.gl/DZdofk)

You might not think that wrong-way #accidents occur very often because they're usually clearly marked or have median barriers.

However, according to statistics released by the U.S. Federal Highway Administration, more than 350 individuals lose their lives every year in wrong-way driving crashes even on roads where the direction of the traffic is clearly marked.

Even though there aren't very many of these compared to other types of car accidents, wrong-way accidents have the highest fatality rates (12% and 27%).

They often involved head-on impacts at high speeds, causing terrible injuries and fatalities for all involved.

Illinois has developed a wrong-way program to identify high-risk locations for these types of accidents. This includes installing better signage to help the driver make better decisions and quickly identify how to stay safe on Illinois state routes and roadways.

If you've been hurt in an accident, call us today (888-424-5757) for a free consultation.

Importance of Medical Experts with Brain Injury Cases (https://goo.gl/wy1nTY)

With these cases, we need to show how the #injury happened, so we rely on medical experts to determine the cause.

Medical experts are instrumental in establishing how an injury occurred and arguing for the need for certain types of medical treatment now and into the future.

Once a value is placed on the treatment, we can recover compensation to cover those expenses.

Common causes of #braininjuries include auto accidents, birth injuries, medical malpractice, and work accidents.

Indicators of a brain injury are dizziness, loss of consciousness, concussion, blurred vision, headache, and more. If you've suffered a brain injury, it's important to seek medical care right away.

In the Chicagoland area, we are fortunate to have a number of nationally recognized hospitals that excel in treating people with brain injuries.

If you've been injured, contact our #attorneys today (888-424-5757) for a free consultation.
