Illinois law requires you to prove 2 things if you are injured.
This includes injuries from a car or truck crash, or falls on someone’s property.
The first thing you must prove is that the party who injured you is negligent.
Negligence means that someone has a duty towards you that is broken or not met.
For instance, other drivers have a duty to obey traffic signals, signs, and to travel at a safe speed.
The second part of your injury case is to prove damages.
Damages are medical treatment such as medications, injections and surgery.
It also includes permanent limitations such as reduced ability to lift or reduced range of motion.
Loss of salary or income is also part of damages.
