C.A.M. attempts reform while keeping Domestic Violence and DUI offenders out of jail

Web Admin - Tuesday, April 16, 2013

There is a little-known reform program in Illinois, at least in Cook County, that applies to individuals who are charged with offenses involving alcohol called C.A.M.  This is an acronym for Continuous Alcohol Monitoring.  It is designed to allow defendants to avoid jail time by wearing an ankle bracelet that is able to determine if, and when, an individual consumes alcohol.

CAM is not for everyone.  The primary user is the “Hard Core Drunk Driver”.  This is the person repeatedly driving with a blood alcohol content (“BAC”) greater than 0.16 or a driver with multiple DUI convictions at any BAC . The secondary user is the criminal offender that has been charged with domestic violence where alcohol is a contributing factor.

CAM was introduced as a way to punish and treat an offender while also protecting the community.  It is designed to be a “happy medium” between allowing offenders to  freely walk the streets and spend time in jail.  It is a 24/7 automated system that conducts a test every 30 minutes.  The CAM bracelet is able to detect, via sweat excretion through the skin, how many drinks a person has had over a given period of time.  It operates much in the same way a bracelet for house arrest does.  The offender is required to wear it at all times, the exception being that they are allowed to leave their premises.       

The most positive element of CAM is its ability to reform while helping criminal offenders avoid jail time.  Judges are sometimes in the business of punishing offenders, while at the same time attempting to reform them.  If a Judge can accomplish this without sentencing jail time they will certainly try to do so.  CAM has been in place in Illinois since 2008.  According to SCRAM from AMS (one of the companies responsible for administering CAM), DUI convictions are down 6% in Illinois over that period of time.  More startlingly, during that same period of time, DUI convictions were down more than 29% in Champaign and Macon County.

If you are one of the above referenced types of offenders, CAM may be a solution for you if you are looking to avoid jail time.  When facing these serious charges, talk with your criminal defense / DUI attorney about taking advantage of the CAM program prior to your court appearance.  It may mean the difference between prison food or pizza on a Friday night.

The Illinois Home Repair and Remodeling Act – Where do we stand?

Web Admin - Monday, April 08, 2013

By: Jay A. Andrew


The Illinois Home Repair and Remodeling Act (“HRRA”)
http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/ilcs/ilcs3.asp?ActID=2359&ChapterID=67 was enacted and became effective on January 1, 2000. The intent of the original Act was to protect the elderly from so called “Storm Chasers”. “Storm Chasers” are contractors who move from state to state seeking repair work after natural disasters in an effort to collect the insurance proceeds. The HRRA’s five main requirements are that: 1) a contractor must provide the consumer a written contract on any home repair or remodeling job over $1,000.00 2) If that contract contains an arbitration and/or a jury waiver the contractor must get the consumer to acknowledge those provisions in writing 3)  the so-called “Storm Chaser” provisions 4) a contractor must provide the consumer with a Consumer Rights brochure for any home repair or remodeling job over $1,000.00 and 5) Minimum insurance requirements for contractors.

The original version of the HRRA stated that it was “unlawful” for any person not to comply with the HRRA. Some very creative attorneys in our state decided that this meant that consumers could use this as a shield to paying contractors for home repair and remodeling work when disputes arose and in some cases they argued that it wiped out the contractor’s Mechanics’ Lien. Thereafter, the Illinois Appellate Courts weighed in on the issue. They had different opinions on these theories[1]. The Act was rewritten in July 2010 to remove the word “unlawful” from Section. At the same time, the K. Miller Construction Company, Inc. v. Joseph McGinnis[2] case was being considered by the Illinois Supreme Court. In September 2010, the Illinois Supreme Court issued their opinion. They found that in light of the statutory amendments, a violation of the HRRA did NOT invalidate the Mechanics’ Lien or effect the enforceability of the construction contract.

Therefore, as consumers you are now left with a private right of action under the statute for a violation. The key to that action is the consumer’s ability to prove actual damages from the violation. The consumer’s attorney can attempt to “boot strap” the violation under the Illinois Consumer Fraud to obtain punitive damages and attorney’s fees. However, a finding of “bad faith” by the trier of fact would become necessary to recover those additional damages under the Consumer Fraud Act.

For the contractor, you should take a look at the HRRA and verify that you are in compliance before you head out to your next job. Your lien rights and enforceability of your own contract appear not to be in jeopardy with a violation, however, suffering through a direct action can also be a costly venture.

Dealing with denied or delayed life insurance claims

Web Admin - Monday, April 01, 2013

After consistently paying premiums on a life insurance policy for years, you should be able to expect the insurance company to live up to their end of the agreement.  Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. Many Illinois life insurance claims are wrongfully delayed or denied.  Here are a couple of tips should you find yourself with a denied life insurance claim:

Trust your instincts. A lot of times, I hear from clients who say that they had a feeling  right away that something just did not seem right from the outset of their initial interactions with the insurance company to collect on a loved one’s life insurance policy.  Maybe the insurance company inaccurately or unfairly categorized the manner of death, or claimed that the policy value was actually less than what they were led to believe.  Frequently, insurance corporations assert that some mistake on the insurance application now prevents the beneficiary from collecting on the policy.  You do not, and should not, assume that they are always right or are being completely truthful.

Don’t give up without a fight. The bottom line is that you do not have to take the insurance company’s word for it.  It could be a simple miscommunication.  It could also be that the insurance company is acting in bad faith or wrongfully denying your claim, which happens when an insurance company denies or delays a claim without a legitimate  legal justification.  Let’s face it, most life insurance claims involve significant dollar figures and insurance companies only make money if they take in more money in premiums than they pay out in claims.  Make sure that the insurance company’s denial is completely legal and justified before walking away.

Don’t sit on your rights. Justice delayed is justice denied.  While already dealing with the loss of a loved one, the prospect of taking on a colossus of an insurance corporation and its legion of highly paid lawyers can seem crushingly overwhelming.  Don’t just ignore the problem and let the insurance company win. Waiting too long to find the energy to take on the insurance corporation can sometimes preclude you from recovering on an otherwise valid claim.

Get help. You do not have to deal with the insurance company on your own. Too often,  beneficiaries inadvertently reduce their chances to recover under a policy by failing to submit paperwork completely, properly and on time.  It’s a good idea to get an experienced life insurance attorney involved if things are not going as they should.  Keep in mind that no matter how nice the person who sold the policy is, the insurance corporation’s interests are directly in conflict with yours.

If you have questions about life insurance benefits that you believe are being unfairly delayed or denied, feel free to contact Ken Apicella of DGAA, LLC. W: www.dgaalaw.com E: KCA@dgaalaw.com P: 847.934.6000.
