Having a cellphone has brought a considerable amount of convenience to numerous people's lives. You may have a cellphone — or multiple phones if your place of employment also provided one — and you may use it often for a variety of tasks. If you need any type of information at a moment's notice, you can likely bring up an app on your phone and find the answer in just a few taps of the screen.
You talk it out. You fight it out. You may even go to therapy. However, there comes a moment when you realize nothing is working, and you wonder if your marriage is over. Making the decision to divorce is seldom easy. There is always the chance that you can recover and things will improve. After all, you may have fond memories of your early years together, and you may wonder how you got so far away from the couple you were back then.
Winter-like weather has already hit many parts of the United States, and Illinois is no exception. When weather changes and road conditions change, it could also increase the chance that you may be involved in an accident. During this time of year, it could be prudent to know how to drive more carefully and to remain vigilant.
You may be among many others in Illinois whose dog is a beloved member of your family. After all, your relationship began when your dog was a mere eight-week-old puppy and has continued for more than a decade. Bringing your puppy home together may be a cherished memory you have with your spouse. However, now that you've decided to divorce, discussions about your pet have grown quite contentious, namely, which one of you will have custody?
Just driving to the grocery store or picking up your children from school may feel like you're laying your life on the line because traffic gets so chaotic and drivers so reckless, when all you're trying to do is get from point A to point B, safely. You already understand that you can't control the actions of every single Illinois driver that crosses your path; however, you shouldn't have to fear for your life (nor your children's) every time you drive.
Illinois pedestrians are always at risk for injury. However, you and your loved ones should be able to enjoy an evening walk together without worrying that a reckless motorist is going to cause you harm. Perhaps you love to take your toddler to the local park after supper and prefer to get some foot exercise to get there rather than take your car.
You may not realize it, but a dog bite can be much more than just a painful inconvenience. When an animal attacks you or your child, you may be unaware of just how far reaching the impact can be, both emotionally and financially.
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.
Driving anywhere seems to be more dangerous each year. Even the improved technology and regulated safety features included in most cars do not always protect you from injury. If your accident involves a larger vehicle, like a tractor-trailer, you may sustain catastrophic injuries.
If you are like most people, you don't get enough sleep. You may survive at work on coffee and struggle to stay awake on your commute home. In fact, some studies show that more than one third of all drivers in the country don't get the recommended seven hours of sleep to stay healthy and alert.
