How to Prove an Illinois Personal Injury Lawsuit

You may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit if you sustain an injury due to someone else’s actions. However, not all accidents will qualify for a personal injury claim.

To prove your right to compensation, you and your attorney will need to provide sufficient evidence and establish the following elements of negligence:

  • Duty: The at-fault party owed you a duty of care at the time of your accident.
  • Dereliction: The at-fault party breached his or her duty of care in some way.
  • Causation: The at-fault party’s breach of duty caused your accident and your resulting injuries.
  • Damages: You can recover compensation for damages you sustained in the accident. Medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and property damages are examples of potential damages in your claim

For example, property owners have a duty to maintain safe premises and respond to hazards within a reasonable timeframe. Say that you inform your landlord that your stairs are broken. The landlord ignores your calls and emails for weeks, failing to respond to the hazard.

One day, you are walking up the stairs when the structure collapses underneath you, leading to a broken leg. If the landlord had fixed the stairs, you would not have sustained injuries—thus establishing his or her negligence.
