Illinois Accident and Injury Laws
Accident and injury law encompasses medical malpractice, automobile accidents, slip and fall injuries, product liability, workers' compensation, even dog bites. State courts handle these sorts of claims, each a little differently. Illinois courts, for example, allow plaintiffs in injury suits to collect damages even if they are partially at fault (less than 50 percent). Also, the state imposes a $500,000 cap on compensatory damages for medical malpractice claims and does not allow punitive damages for such claims. Injury law is a dynamic practice area that changes with the changing tide of public opinion. Click a link below to learn more about Illinois accident and injury laws.
