Lombard personal injury lawyerContrary to popular belief, slip and fall injuries in the workplace occur throughout the entire year, not just in winter. Though ice, snow, and adverse weather conditions can make slips and falls more likely to occur without proper precaution, many slip and falls accidents occur within the controlled environments of indoor offices. A common cause of slip and fall injuries is wet, slippery floors without proper signage of the hazard. Wet floors are not the only everyday materials that can cause such injuries. Improperly anchored carpet or extension cords and freshly mopped and waxed flooring can cause employees to lose balance, resulting in minor to serious injuries. Controlled office environments may not be absent from such dangerous conditions, but some occupations bring a higher risk of injury than others.

Industries with High Incidences of Workplace Injury

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that falls, slips, and trips accounted for 14 percent of all fatal workplace injuries in Illinois in 2018. It is also the third most common type of workplace fatality. Though injuries in the workplace are generally evenly distributed across industries and occupations, there are several outliers that exceed the average rates. The following are occupations in which workers may be at a higher risk for a fall, slip, or trip:

  • Farmers, ranchers, and other agricultural managers, who alone accounted for 9 percent of all workplace injuries in 2018.

IL immigration lawyerU.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced an administrative change that is aimed to allow for more flexibility during the processing of employment authorization documents (EADs) for asylum applicants by removing the existing required 30-day time frame. This rule will become effective as of Aug. 21, 2020. Depending on their situations, certain aliens who are living in the United States temporarily may be eligible for a work permit. They can request work authorization using Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization. Once approved, these individuals will receive an Employment Authorization Document (EAD) to work in the country. U.S. employers have a duty to check that all employees, regardless of their nationality or citizenship status, are allowed to work in the country. If someone is not a citizen or a lawful permanent resident (LPR), he or she can still work in the United States if he or she has a valid EAD.

Amendment to Time Limits

This change in policy allows USCIS enough time to receive, screen, and process applications. Officials can also address national security and fraud concerns, as well as identity verification techniques. This helps deter those who may attempt to defraud the U.S. immigration system. It also gives USCIS flexibility to amend resources as needed. Previously, the agency had to move resources away from other types of immigration benefit requests in order to comply with the 30-day time frame.

USCIS implemented the 30-day time frame more than two decades ago. In the past 20 years, the number of people applying for asylum has increased exponentially. As a response, USCIS created enhanced background screening and vetting protocols to safeguard against fraud or threats to public safety and national security.

Lombard, IL car accident attorney speeding

The roads in Illinois -- especially those closer to larger cities such as Chicago -- are rarely empty. They are usually teeming with cars full of people trying to get to work, school, appointments, and everywhere else. Lately, however, the roads have been much less crowded -- and noticeably so. This was to be expected because of the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the country. Illinois issued a stay-at-home order in mid-March that prohibited non-essential travel and work, which greatly cut down on vehicles on the road. Despite the drop in traffic, the number of speeding tickets and speeding-related accidents has increased greatly. An Illinois car accident injury lawyer can assist you with pursuing compensation if you are injured in a vehicle crash caused by speeding.

Traffic Fatalities Increase in Illinois

Most people know that speed is one of the factors that can increase the severity of a car accident. Typically, the faster the speed you are traveling at when you get into the accident, the more severe the damages are. A speed-related car accident can cause serious injuries to yourself and your passengers, including broken bones, spinal cord damage, brain damage, and even death in some instances.

Lombard divorce lawyerSimilar to other kinds of losses, a divorce never looks or feels exactly the same for every person. We all grieve and process that grief differently, and because the divorce experience can vary in complexity depending on the circumstances of a given relationship, the journey can be especially unique and challenging to navigate. Emotional setbacks throughout a divorce are common and to be expected, regardless of your circumstances. The key to having victory over those setbacks and keeping them from controlling you begins with having coping strategies in your arsenal when times get tough.

Conquering the Tide of Discouragement

Thankfully, there have been countless studies on the psychological ramifications of divorce and the most effective ways to manage the stress, disappointment, and setbacks they entail. Psychologists recommend the following to heal, stay positive, and move forward, despite the emotional roadblocks you may experience along the way:

  1. Stop Beating Yourself Up - Whether you lose your temper in front of your children, snap at your ex-spouse, or are struggling with a depressed mood, it is important to be patient with yourself and remember that you will have good days and bad days as you adjust to the effects of divorce. Make self-care a priority: Eat well, get enough sleep, and exercise daily. Avoid ruminating on your mistakes, which hold you hostage in the past. If you are stuck in a negative thought cycle where you are continually punishing yourself, speak with a counselor or other mental health professional who can help equip you with the tools you need to break this counterproductive pattern of thinking.

IL immigration lawyerThe U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency is a federal law enforcement agency under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The agency is responsible for protecting the United States by enforcing border control, customs, trade, and immigration laws for public safety and national security. ICE officials detain those individuals who are considered a “flight risk” and may move to another place within the country or who may be a danger to others. By being detained, the government ensures that the non-citizen will appear before the Immigration Court to plead his or her case. It is crucial that immigrants seek professional legal counsel for guidance on their options.

Grounds for Detention

If a person is detained by ICE officials, it does not mean he or she will automatically be deported. A detainee can plead his or her case to an Immigration Judge, who will make the final decision. There are several grounds that an immigrant can be detained, including:

  • Committed a crime or multiple crimes
  • Arrived at the border without a visa before officially applying for refugee or asylum status
  • Has a pending or past due deportation order on record
  • Missed prior immigration hearing dates

Immigration Bonds

After being detained, a non-citizen can seek to be released on a bond. In situations where detention is based on a criminal conviction, an individual may not be eligible to receive a bond. The two types of immigration bonds available to immigrants detained by ICE are:
