Beach Park Toxic Cloud Results In Many People Being Seriously Injured

People being seriously injured by the negligence of others often seek to get injury compensation for the injuries and other harm that has occurred. As seen on this site, people being seriously injured can have many lasting impairments and other ill-effects stemming from an injury.

A personal injury lawsuit is often filed by a personal injury lawyer to get injury compensation. This injury compensation is often needed to help cover medical expenses – which, depending on the type of injury, can be (very) large – as well as other financial issues and hardships that can result from the injury, such as lost wages. In addition, there are various other reasons for getting injury compensation.

An April 25, 2019 incident in Beach Park resulted in many people being seriously injured and hospitalized. The incident involved a chemical spill of anhydrous ammonia that created a toxic cloud. The ammonia was being transported by a tractor.

The incident is discussed in various media sources, including the April 25, 2019 Lake County Sheriff’s Office media release titled “Message from Sheriff John Idleburg Regarding the Beach Park Incident.” An excerpt:

“Today, approximately 140 first-responders responded to an active incident, to keep our community safe.  The spill of anhydrous ammonia had a major impact on the people of Beach Park and surrounding communities.  The Lake County Sheriff’s Office worked diligently with Fire and Village officials to notify the community of the danger as quick as we possibly could.  

The latest report we have is 37 members of our community required transport to an area hospital, after breathing in the toxic fumes.  This includes 11 firefighters, two deputies, and one police officer.  One of those firefighters, along with six other members of the community are currently in critical condition.

 
The chemical spill occurred near the intersection of North Green Bay Road and East 29th Street.

An excerpt regarding the chemical spill that resulted in people being seriously injured and hospitalized, from the April 25 NBC Chicago article with video titled “Beach Park Chemical Spill Prompts Hazmat Response…“:

Anhydrous ammonia is a colorless gas with “pungent, suffocating fumes,” per the CDC, which said it can cause difficulty breathing, chest pain, burns and more, becoming potentially fatal at high concentrations.

Wearing A Sport Helmet To Reduce The Odds Of A Serious Head Injury

Wearing a sport helmet are one way to avoid head injuries – or lessen the severity of head injuries – in the event of a head impact.

On this site, there are many discussion of brain injuries, including those that occur in sports. Brain injuries are notable due to their potential to be complex in nature, and serious brain injuries can have significant if not substantial adverse impacts on one’s health and vitality.

Among sports in which head injuries are common include football, soccer, and hockey. However, the possibility of getting a traumatic brain injury is possible in many other sports, including bicycling and rugby. The subject of concussions in sports is discussed on the “Concussion In Sports” page. An excerpt:

While concussions in football has recently received much attention, there are many sports in which repetitive head impacts and concussions are common.  One of those sports is hockey.  The “Long-Term Health Consequences Of Repeated Head Impacts” page discusses a personal injury lawsuit filed by Steve Montador’s family against the NHL, making various claims.  Montador received a number of concussions during his NHL career, and was diagnosed as having chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).

In many of these sports, wearing a sport helmet is an option. On this site, helmets as a way to reduce the possibility of serious head trauma is discussed on the “Helmet Usage Recommendations” page.

Another activity that is prone to create injuries – some of which may involve head trauma – is electric scooters. The subject of accidents and injuries by riders of electric scooters is discussed in the January 26, 2019 abc7chicago.com article (with video) titled “Only 4% of electric scooter riders injured in accidents were wearing helmets, UCLA study finds.” An excerpt:

The 228 patients who were riding a scooter at the time they were injured were divided into three categories based on the nature of their injuries: 40 percent sustained head injuries, 32 percent suffered bone fractures and the remaining 28 percent had cuts, sprains or bruises but no head injury. The vast majority of the injuries were caused by riders falling off scooters, though some were involved in collisions.

As seen in the article, the UCLA study found that the vast majority of electric scooter riders were not wearing helmets at the time of the accident.

Additional details concerning these wearing a sport helmet topics can be seen in the sources mentioned above.

Traumatic Brain Injuries And The Difficulties They Cause

Traumatic brain injuries are often discussed on this site, as such injuries often lead to temporary as well as permanent impairments. These impairments, as well as other difficulties associated with head injuries, can cause significant hardships.

Such traumatic brain injuries can result from a broad range of accidents, including car accidents, other types of vehicle accidents, and other types of personal injury.

Due to the hardships that such head injuries can cause – especially if they result in serious brain injuries – extensive medical care can be required. This medical care can include hospitalization, testing, surgeries, and various types of rehabilitation.

Some traumatic brain injuries, such as concussions, can have short-term impacts.  For example, mild concussions can have symptoms that subside in a couple of weeks.  However, even in these instances, the long-term health impact is unclear, and many believe that numerous mild concussions can have significant adverse long-term health implications.

For severe traumatic brain injuries (TBI) that aren’t fatal, such injuries can lead to permanent impairments.  In such instances, significant amounts of medical treatment and medical care may be required.  Since medical treatment for traumatic brain injuries is often costly and can have other adverse financial impacts (such as lost wages due to an inability to work) many who are injured seek to file personal injury lawsuits if the accident was the fault of another person or party.

In some instances, accidents involving traumatic brain injuries lead to death, either at the accident scene or at some later time.

There was a January 2, 2019 Riverside car crash that involved a driver being injured and hospitalized with a head injury. An excerpt regarding the head trauma suffered by the driver, Tyler Plunkett, from the January 4, 2019 La Grange Patch article titled “Drugged Driver Hits Car Stopped At Red Light: Riverside Cops“: 

The officer went to the scene to render medical aid, and found Plunkett had a severe head injury. He was taken to MacNeal Hospital by Riverside paramedics.

Additional details concerning head injuries can be seen in the sources mentioned above.

Man Attacked By Pit Bulls In Chicago’s West Englewood Neighborhood

A man was attacked by pit bulls Wednesday (October 31, 2018) in Chicago’s West Englewood neighborhood.  According to news accounts, the elderly man who was attacked suffered injuries to his hands and shoulder, and according to a witness was extensively bleeding following being attacked by pit bulls.  The victim was hospitalized.

Additional details regarding this man being attacked by pit bulls can be seen in a variety of media sources, including the October 31, 2018 abc7chicago.com article (with video) titled “2 pit bulls attack man on South Side.”

As seen in the Illinois dog attacks discussed on this site, dogs that attack people can lead to many types of serious injuries.  While some attacks result in a single dog bite, other attacks cause far more extensive injuries and harm.   Many of these dog attacks – such as the incident discussed above in which a man was attacked by pit bulls – happen without the person attacked provoking the dog in any way.

If extensive injuries occur, medical bills and other costs resulting from an attack can be substantial.  Many dog attack victims seek injury compensation for their medical costs, pain, and other hardships through the filing of a personal injury lawsuit.

Additional details and possible updates concerning the incident in which a man was attacked by pit bulls as well as the broader issue of dog attacks can be seen in the sources mentioned above.

Pit Bull Attack Involving Two Women In Chicago’s Burnside Neighborhood

When a pit bull attack occurs, there is the possibility of significant harm.  While some of these attacks result in a single dog bite, other attacks lead to substantial injuries.

A pit bull attack can lead to extensive injuries that can be life-threatening in nature.  Some have led to fatalities, such as the South Deering fatal pit bull attack that happened on August 4, 2018.

As seen in various incidents covered by the media, as well as the Illinois dog attacks discussed on this site, dogs that attack people can lead to many types of serious injuries.  While some incidents result in a single dog bite, other attacks cause far greater injuries.   Of note, many of these vicious dog attacks happen without the person attacked provoking the dog.

For serious non-fatal dog attacks, extensive injuries can occur.  Among common injuries is disfigurement.

If extensive injuries occur, medical bills and other costs resulting from these attacks can be substantial.  Given these injuries and the accompanying costs, pain, and other hardships that can result from such attacks, dog attacks victims often seek to file lawsuits as they have a significant need for injury compensation.

There was a pit bull dog attack in Chicago’s Burnside neighborhood (Chicago’s South Side) on Wednesday (August 8, 2018) evening.  The Chicago Sun-Times article of August 9, 2018, titled “2 women attacked by pit bull in Burnside” discusses the incident.  An excerpt:

Two women were attacked by a pit bull Wednesday night in the Burnside neighborhood on the South Side.

The women, ages 67 and 46, were standing in front of their home when they were attacked by the dog at 7:49 p.m. in the 9100 block of South Woodlawn, according to Chicago Police.

A neighbor hit the pit bull with a shovel, which allowed the women to escape.  They were taken to the hospital for treatment of their dog attack injuries.  The injuries were considered to be non-life-threatening in nature.

Additional details regarding dog attacks can be seen in the sources mentioned above.

Chicago Dog Attack Leads To Death Of Woman In South Deering Neighborhood

Whenever a Chicago dog attack occurs, there is the possibility of significant harm.  As seen in various incidents covered by the media, as well as the Illinois dog attacks discussed on this site, dogs that attack people can lead to many types of serious injuries.  While some incidents result in a single dog bite, other attacks cause far greater injuries.   Of note, many of these vicious dog attacks happen without the person attacked provoking the dog.

In addition, there have been a significant number of dog attacks that have led to fatalities.

For serious dog attacks in which injuries are not fatal, extensive injuries can occur.  In many of these vicious dog attacks, disfigurement – including scarring – has occurred.

Medical bills and other costs resulting from these attacks can be substantial.  Given these injuries and the accompanying costs and hardships that result from such attacks, victims of serious dog attacks often have a significant need for injury compensation.

There was a fatal Chicago dog attack Saturday (August 4, 2018) in Chicago’s South Deering neighborhood (Chicago’s Far South Side).

According to Chicago Police, this fatal Chicago dog attack happened at approximately 2:30 p.m., in the 10100 block of South Calhoun.  At that time, a 57-year-old woman was mauled by a large pit bull.  The woman’s injuries included dog bites to her neck and throughout her body.

The woman, identified as Karen Brown, 57, was pronounced dead after being taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center.

The pit bull was shot dead by Chicago Police after the dog charged at the officers.

Additional details and possible updates concerning this fatal Chicago dog attack can be seen in a variety of media sources, including the August 4, 2018 Chicago Tribune article titled “Pit bull mauls woman to death on Far South Side, is killed by police” as well as the August 4, 2018 CBS Chicago article (with video) titled “South Side Woman Killed By Pit Bull.”

Accidents Involving Brain Injuries In Chicago June 2018

Accidents involving brain injuries are often discussed on this site, as such injuries often lead to temporary as well as permanent impairments.  They can occur in a broad range of accidents.

Some brain injuries have short-term impacts.  For example, mild concussions can have short-term symptoms that subside with time.  However, even in these instances, the long-term impact on health is unclear, and many believe that numerous mild concussions can have significant long-term health implications.

For severe traumatic brain injuries (TBI) that aren’t fatal, some injuries can lead to permanent impairments.  In such instances, significant amounts of medical treatment, including various types of rehabilitation, may be required.  Since medical treatment for traumatic brain injuries is often costly and can have other adverse financial impacts (such as lost wages due to an inability to work) personal injury lawsuits are often filed if the accident was the fault of another person or party.

In some instances, accidents involving brain injuries lead to death.  Such is the case involving two recent Chicago incidents in which people fell and struck their heads.

The first accident occurred on Monday (June 11, 2018) near the Wrigley Building.  This accident is further discussed in the June 12, 2018 Daily Southtown article titled “18-year-old Burbank man dies in fall from walkway near Wrigley Building.”  In this accident a man fell from an elevated pedestrian walkway and hit his head.

The second accident occurred on Tuesday (June 12, 2018) afternoon at a trade show at the Merchandise Mart.  In this accident (further discussed in the June 13, 2018 Chicago Sun-Times article titled “Florida woman dies in fall from swing at NeoCon Show in Merchandise Mart” a woman (Jacqueline E. Albertine, 57) fell from a swing and hit her head.

An excerpt from the article:

Albertine, of Miami Beach, Florida struck her head and was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 4:23 p.m., the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said. An autopsy Wednesday found she died of blunt force head trauma and her death was ruled an accident.

Improperly Maintained Sidewalk Focus Of Lawsut Against Joliet

A common accident involving unsafe infrastructure is when there is a “trip and fall” accident involving an improperly maintained sidewalk.  Often, these sidewalks will have broken concrete or some other abnormal condition which may cause a person to lose their balance and trip.  If the person then falls, they may be injured during this fall.  Many “trip and fall” accidents that have been featured on this site have resulted in a range of serious injuries.  Some of these injuries have caused temporary or permanent physical impairments.

The May 10, 2018 Joliet Patch article titled “Joliet Slip, Fall Lawsuit Settled For Six Figures” discusses a lawsuit naming the City of Joliet as well as the Pace bus service as defendants.  The alleged accident involved a woman (Estella Jurkovich, the plaintiff) who fell after tripping on a Joliet sidewalk near Plainfield Road and Connecticut Avenue.

An excerpt from the article:

The 2013 lawsuit accused Joliet of negligence by “failing to properly inspect the sidewalk upon which the public could walk” and also having “failed to provide a safe walking surface.”

Next month will mark five years since Jurkovich took her tumble to the ground, not far from the Tezak Funeral Home, the lawsuit notes. The lawsuit states that Jurkovich “was caused to fall and be severely injured as a result of the unsafe conditions” of the city sidewalk.

The article further discusses the effect of the injuries and other adversities (including pain and anguish) allegedly caused by the accident.

Additional details and possible updates concerning the lawsuit concerning the improperly maintained sidewalk can be seen in the article.

Negligent Maintenance Claimed In Sidwalk “Trip & Fall” Lawsuit

On this site, many injuries and deaths (as well associated lawsuits) that have been caused by alleged negligent maintenance of unsafe infrastructure have been discussed.  In most instances, these accidents and accompanying injuries are caused because the infrastructure (including sidewalks, streets, sewers, buildings, bus shelters, etc.) has not been properly maintained.  An unsafe condition can develop, which can cause injuries, some of which can be life-threatening to those who have been hurt.

Many of these injuries require hospitalization as well as follow-up medical care, such as tests, surgeries, and rehabilitation.  In many instances lawsuits are filed against the person, company, or other entity (such as a city or state) that owns the infrastructure and has been negligent in its maintenance and/or operation.  These lawsuits typically seek compensation for medical costs, impairments, pain and suffering, any lost wages, and other adversities caused by the injuries.

There was a lawsuit filed against the Village of Bethalto over an alleged incident in which a woman tripped and fell on a sidewalk.

The lawsuit and alleged injuries are discussed on the April 25, 2018 Madison Record article titled “Woman sues Bethalto over sidewalk trip, fall.”  An excerpt:

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on May 12, 2017, Bonnie Coleman was using the public sidewalk located on Woodcrest Drive when she tripped and fell over reinforcement steel used in a concrete manhole.

Coleman claims she sustained severe and permanent injuries that prevented her from attending to her usual duties and affairs. She also claims she has suffered great pain, mental anguish and incurred medical expenses.

Additional details regarding the lawsuit, including claims regarding how the Village was negligent, can be seen in the article.
