Daylight saving time means more drowsy drivers

Daylight saving time can lead to more and more drowsy drivers on the road, according to a new study from AAA. Drivers in Illinois will want to know what the organization recommends in order to prevent drowsy driving and prepare for the changes that daylight saving time brings. Prevention is especially important because drowsiness accounts for nearly 10 percent of all car crashes in the country.

Making these mistakes after a crash could cost you your claim

Remembering what to do – and what not to do – after a crash isn’t always a simple task when adrenaline and tensions are running high. But what you do at the scene of an accident can be vital to your case. Failing to take action could hurt your chances of successfully pursuing a claim.

Divorce and dividing 401(k) funds

One of the most highly disputed issues that divorcing couples in Illinois may address is the division of 401(k) funds.

Illinois residents may be able to protect assets from creditors or property division by creating a prenuptial agreement. It may also be possible to do so by keeping assets in a separate account. As a general rule, separate property refers to anything a person owned prior to a marriage.
