In a mesothelioma lawsuit, the third step is response from the defendants. The defendants will receive a copy of the written complaint. They will then find their own lawyers to represent them and will have approximately 30 days to respond.

There are some companies that used asbestos or asbestos-containing products that have filed bankruptcy but have established trusts to compensate mesothelioma asbestos victims. If this is an option, we use the documentation of diagnosis and work history to submit claims to these trusts.

Is Roundup Safe to Use on My Residential Property?

Today, Roundup products are still being sold as residential weedkiller. While Bayer has committed to removing the chemical glyphosate from their consumer Roundup products in an attempt to reduce litigation risk going forward, this change will not take effect until the year 2023.

The Roundup products you may find on the shelves of your local gardening retailer now may still include this chemical. Read more about the risks of using Roundup in our recent blog post: https://bit.ly/3DgzEjM

Clergy Sexual Abuse Attorneys

In 2019, a reported 1,700 clergy who had been credibly accused of sexual abuse were found to be living under the radar—little to no supervision or oversight by either law enforcement or religious authorities.

This is one of the few statistics out there around abuse in the church. It's difficult to know the scope of child sexual abuse in addition to underreporting because statistics are not easy to find. Many accusations and reports are covered up by institutions or dealt with by religious leaders.

One of the key differences between commercial trucking accidents and other types of motor vehicle accidents is that the question of liability can be extremely complicated.

In a trucking accident, there are several parties who may be involved and who may be sued for your accident. This includes the driver, the trucking company, the manufacturer of the truck or its parts, and potentially others. A truck accident attorney can help determine this based on the results of the investigation and other information.

Special guests at the mixer were Supreme Court of Illinois Chief Justice Lloyd A. Karmeier and his wife, Mary. NJC Board Chair Sandra Yamate introduced the chief justice. Earlier in the day, Thursday, 70 judges came to the Dirksen Senate Office Building for our program on Best Practices for Handling Self-Represented Litigants.
