Motor vehicle accidents including car accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck accidents are the most common type of personal injury claim. These claims are typically based on the theory of negligence. In most Illinois motor vehicle accidents, the injured party, the plaintiff, must establish the negligence the defendant in order to seek civil damages. Furthermore, the plaintiff must show that the defendant’s negligence was the proximate cause of both the accident and the plaintiff’s injuries. A chicago car accident attorney can help guide you through this process.
