Some of the most common types of personal injury cases include slip and fall, automobile accidents, medical malpractice, and product liability. The goal of a personal injury action is to determine who was responsible, hold them accountable, and then compel the responsible party to compensate the injured person for the losses sustained.
But what if it was not a person, but rather an object, one you accidentally hit on the road, that caused you injuries?
In Illinois, the legal definition of an auto accident is when any road vehicle collides with another object, such as a pedestrian, road debris, or another vehicle. If another driver is at fault, and you suffered injuries or property damages, you may be eligible for compensatory damages from the driver. In most situations, you should consult with a motor vehicle accident attorney before pursuing your personal injury case. Most people are not prepared to face insurance companies and their legal teams, who are experts at minimizing insurance payouts to wronged parties.
There are laws to protect you from accidents regarding road debris, especially if you were injured. For more information or to consult with a Chicago Personal Injury Attorney, contact The Horwitz Law Group Today.
