Is joint custody right for you?

As a parent in Illinois who's currently going through a divorce, there are likely many things on your mind regarding child custody. Who will be the primary custodial guardian? How will you divide the visitation schedule? Joint custody is also a potential option for you to look into, if your situation supports it.

Tips for avoiding trucker “no zones”

Every time you pull onto an Illinois freeway, you are likely to encounter large trucks, and just as you have blind spots that make it tough to see certain areas outside your vehicle, truckers, too, have these struggles. Because of the sheer size of many commercial trucks, these blind spots, or “no zones,” can prove far larger than those associated with standard passenger vehicles. At the Law Office of Kerley & Associates, we understand the types of injuries that often result when cars and trucks collide, and we have assisted many clients who suffered injury after accidents involving commercial trucks.

The most common car accident injuries

While there are several different types of injuries that can occur during an Illinois car accident, there are a few that have been shown to be the most common. Some are more serious than others, but all can interfere with your everyday activities. We at the Law Office of Kerley and Associates can help you seek the compensation you need to properly recover and get back to your life before the accident.

What parents need to know about animal bites

If your child has been bitten by an animal in Illinois, there are several things you should know. Every bite can be different, so you may need help identifying potential diseases or knowing how to treat the wound. We at the Law Office of Kerley and Associates can help you recognize dangers you may not have been aware of and ensure that you receive the compensation you need to get adequate treatment.

Your best efforts may not protect you from a motorcycle accident

Is it the thrill? The freedom? Maybe you just know how cool it looks to ride a motorcycle. Or maybe you ride because it saves you money on gas. Whatever the reason, it probably didn't take you long to discover that operating a motorcycle can be dangerous, and that you need to take every precaution because not many other drivers are looking out for your safety.

Decreased alcohol limits for truck drivers

Sharing the road with large trucks in Illinois can be dangerous. The sheer size and weight differences between trucks and passenger vehicles can cause more significant injuries and incidents of death than other accidents. In order to prevent this from happening, government officials have created stricter laws for truck drivers that are specifically designed to protect everyone on the road.
