Projectile objects being thrown at your head create an unsafe work environment and also have the potential to cause serious blindness and bodily injury. Report the incident to your manager. If your manager fails to correct the conduct, then report the matter to Human Resources.

Inability to put any weight on my leg for 12 weeks. The intersection itself was completely unmarked... Read more »

What happens in traffic court will have a huge impact on whether you will be able to be compensated for your injuries. In the meantime, make certain you continue to follow up with medical treatment and hire a personal injury attorney right away.

If you are experiencing pain then you need to seek medical attention right away. An injured person should not allow the Co-vid 19 pandemic to result in untreated pain, or even worse, allowing a severe injury to become permanent or cause death out of fear of going to the doctor. The emergency rooms... Read more »
I’m required to go. What should I expect? First time offense. First time being pulled over. License Suspension? It says “Method of Release $1500” on my ticket.

Speeding 26-34 above the legal speed limit is criminal Class B misdemeanor in Illinois. Driving on a suspended license is a minimum criminal Class A misdemeanor in Illinois. Make certain to show up to Court to preserve your $1500 bond as noted. You will need an attorney to represent you.
I got a speeding ticket going 73 in a 55 what are the penalties I could face will they just count the court supervision because it is 6 days from ending as I have a rather clean driving record.
answered on Aug 14, 2019
Since you are 6 days away from the 90 day mark - wait out the clock and allow the current court supervision to sunset satisfactorily (ie; pay off fines, complete traffic school, etc. ) on day 90 before you answer to this current speeding ticket.
Should I go to court and see if they can reduce or dismiss the ticket?
answered on Jul 25, 2019
Bring the city sticker receipt as proof to Court and see whether they will dismiss the ticket.
One on 6/14/19 for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident. With the graduated license program he is likely to lose his license if plead guilty. What is the best way to handle this to see if can keep his license?

A guilty plea exposes your son to more civil liability than just possibly losing his license. The best way to avoid a conviction is to show up to Court with your son and bring a seasoned Traffic Attorney with you.
I had two court supervisions but when i looked myself up they were still on file, is a court supervision a conviction?

In Illinois, Court Supervision do not count as convictions. However, be mindful the government may ask the Court to revoke Court Supervision and enter a conviction against you if you pick up another ticket while driving on Court Supervision.
answered on Jun 25, 2019
You will have a better chance to get the case dismissed if the Court date was more than 60 days after the day you received a non-criminal traffic ticket.
I recieced two of the same types of tickets and just pleaded guilty and paid the court costs, I travel for work now and didnt realize the ticket from 2017 would effect my job.

Talk to a local traffic attorney near the county where you got denied.
If all else fails, I suggest finding another job. Good Luck!
It happened in Macon County, IL. I was speeding and got a ticket for that also.

The 140 is your bond. The penalty fine for no proof of insurance is much much higher.
I am 20 years old and recently finished court supervision back in November from a different ticket for speeding.
answered on Mar 25, 2019
Under age 21 - Two moving violation convictions within 24 months triggers a license suspension. Court Supervision, when successfully completed, does not count as a conviction.
I did not receive any tickets within the 3 month time period, and I also have the letter from the school stating I completed the driving school. Do I need to have a guardian present, or can I go alone and show them the sheet and be done with the case?
answered on Mar 13, 2019
If you are a minor you should always have a parent or guardian accompany you to Court.
Either way just make certain you do show up to Court to show proof of completion of the driving school.
Knowing i went to court i didnt miss but my bond on the paper said $150 when i was took from my residence i got told at the jail my bond was $1000 i got a small reduction bonded out for $528.

At best you may have been notified that a criminal bench warrant was issued for your arrest. The original signed and court clerk stamped warrant should be in your Court file.
I’m only 18 and I got a ticket for disobeying a stop sign dec 28 2018. I got another way a couple days ago For the same reason. I paid the first one off.

The $1500 is the I-bond amount on the ticket. You do not have to pay it so long as you show up to every Court date. Speeding 26-34 mph above the speed limit is a criminal offense in Illinois. You will need an attorney.

Make certain you show up to Court in person and show proof of registration.
The method of release on my tickets is mentioned as paying 2000 and 120 dollars respectively. My court appearance is scheduled for this coming Monday . I'm a student and couldn't pay those fines. How can i proceed further in the court without taking any attorney.
answered on Feb 2, 2019
The method of release you are referring to is the bond amount you will have to pay if you fail to show up to Court. They are not the fines and fees. Just make certain you do show up to Court on Monday. Good Luck!
I don't have any proof of insurance when pulled over.I got a court date on my ticket. Will the circuit court accepts my insurance paper work with the same start date as my ticket date and dismiss my ticket.
answered on Jan 24, 2019
The Court should dismiss the ticket if you can prove you were covered by your insurance policy prior to the time that was posted on the ticket.
answered on Jan 16, 2019
Illinois law requires you to notify the Secretary of State every time you change your address so they can send you notices. Failure to do so can lead to getting another ticket.
