A mass transit accident is one of the most frightening events a person can experience. The lack of control, the chaos and the violence typically rock victims to their core whether they suffer physical injuries or not.

Trains and buses are the usual mode and while one can trust that these vehicles are in good condition, mass transit accidents still occur.

Legal solutions when you lose a loved one to wrongful death

The concept of taking legal action over the wrongful death of a family member is an extremely uncomfortable topic for many Illinois residents.

A recent collision involving a pickup truck and a box truck near Chicago shines a harsh light on truck accidents in which the driver seems to bear no fault.
