Personal injury under Illinois’s jurisdiction encompasses personal liability claims cases when an individual is impacted by an accident, a defective drug, or in a residential area with contamination issues. The personal injury rhetoric is painted in broad strokes, with an injury described as something harming a victim physically, mentally, and even emotionally.
Some common personal injury cases include: medical malpractice and motor vehicle accidents being two of the most common, followed by defective drug and product liability. Another common type of personal injury law is neglect, also referred to as wrongful death. You may have known an elderly person or child who died under the watch of a caregiver or nursing home attendant. Food poisoning, train accidents, slip and fall, and others are examples of some less common personal injury cases, but can depend highly on witnesses who can attest to the danger maintained by the injured party. Also helpful to support your case are before and after pictures to prove the damage done following your accident, or an assessment from a recent physical if you’ve suffered a more complex injury through medical malpractice or otherwise.
