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...
