Samples of Our Work Product — Part 4

At the risk of stating the obvious, we all know that accidents can happen anywhere, at anytime. And while a majority of personal injury claims stem from traffic accidents, we have seen quite a rise in the number of claims occurring in gyms and health/fitness clubs. One of the favorite “tricks of the trade” these facilities use to weasel out of accountability for their negligence is to slip exculpatory language into the fine print of your membership contract. In other words, the health club will effectively force you to sign a contract which contains language purporting to release them from… Read More

The previous post provided an example of a case wherein the insurance company admitted that its insured was 100% at fault, yet was quibbling over the amount of damages which would adequately compensate him. However, we often encounter cases wherein the insurance company is denying liability on the part of its insured from the outset. The following letter was submitted to an insurance company which vociferously denied that its insured was at-fault in a car wreck. Our client was traveling southbound on Wetmore Road, and the at-fault driver (of a large bus) turned in front of us from a private… Read More

Forget Santa’s Sleigh! Uber Connect Could Send Your Christmas Presents

If you’ve opened the Uber app recently, there’s a good chance you’ve seen a new “package” option near the food icon. No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you; Uber is now entering the package delivery space!   Well, to get technical, Uber “entered” the delivery game in April of 2020.

How to Approach Car Accident Claims

For Instance, New York City isn’t actually known for the number of car accidents and associated fatalities but the number is often way too large to discard as an oversight. Although the fatalities comprise a small percentage of the overall figures i.e. almost 135,000 impacts in 2016 alone, a majority of these accidents lead to significant damages to property and physical health.  They are often caused by inexperienced drivers who are in a hurry to get from point A to point B, or who forget to pay attention to traffic signs, and often end up on the wrong side of… Read More

Difference between Homicide, Murder, and Manslaughter

Homicide, murder, and manslaughter are three words that can make a person’s blood curl, as each of them essentially involves taking someone’s life. While watching or listening to the news, one might assume that all three words are used interchangeably. However, when murders are defined by degrees and the alleged killers receive contrasting penalties, it may create confusion in one’s mind. Even though each term implies that someone was killed at the hands of the defendant, the punishment varies with regard to motive, intention, purpose, and protocol of execution. Learning the difference between the three terms shall resolve your concerns:… Read More

Who Has Custody in Illinois When the Parents are Not Married?

Upon the divorce of married couples, child custody issues are handled in a straightforward matter by Illinois judicial systems. However, unmarried couples who separate are forced to navigate a complex road in court when disputing the custody of their child. How Important is Establishing Paternity? In instances of unmarried parents, the unwed father is not automatically considered to be the biological parent of the child—unlike with married couples. Establishing parenthood offers certain parental rights while also enforcing a series of legal obligations to the child. Without establishing paternity, the unmarried father fails to have automatic rights over the child. An… Read More
