Auto Accidents Are the Most Common Personal Injury Accident
Motor vehicle accidents, including car accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck accidents are the most common type of personal injury claim. Given that the City of Joliet is a bustling suburban community, with a number of major thoroughfares for motor vehicles, auto accidents are bound to happen. When a person is injured in a motor vehicle accident, the negligent party may be liable for injuries or damages caused by the accident through a personal injury lawsuit. In order to assert a valid personal injury claim, however, the injured party must prove that the defendant was negligent and that the defendant’s negligence was the proximate cause of both the accident and the plaintiff’s injuries.
