There Is No “Tooth Fairy” and When You Have A Personal Injury or Wrongful Death Claim There Are No “Good Insurance Companies” Reality is brutal and direct.  Just like a used car salesman or magical potion to lose weight without cutting back on your food intake or increasing your level of exercise – when you or a loved one is hurt, injured or killed due to the wrongful acts of another person or company – the insurance company/claims people are only concerned with preventing or minimizing the financial harm to their insured person or company.

The Federal Drug Administration recently recalled a device used in reconstructive facial surgery commonly termed a “External Mandibular Fixator And/Or Distractor with Bone Plate.”This device is being recalled because some of these devices have lost “distraction tension” (the ability to stabilize and/or pull bones and tissue apart) which allows the facial bones / neck tissue / and or plates to collapse and this can result in the blockage of the airway and the suffocation and death of the patient.  This defective surgical device presents a disproportionate threat to children and adolescents who represent the age groups which most commonly undergo…
September 30, 2014 In a personal injury trial in the State of Illinois the introduction of evidence of alcohol consumption and/or intoxication may often determine the outcome of the entire lawsuit.  Recently the issue of when and under what circumstances proof of  consumption of alcohol and/or intoxication is properly admissible to prove the defendant’s “fault” or a plaintiff’s “comparative fault” arose in an Illinois personal injury lawsuit.
