What is Personal Injury Law In Illinois?
In Illinois, like other states around the United States, cases between members of the general public are tried in the civil courts.
For a case to be tried in civil courts, an individual (called a plaintiff) must establish that the defendant owed them a specific duty of care and that duty of care was breached, which resulted in harm and damages to the victim. Damages are intended to restore the injured party to their financial position before the wrongful act occurred.
In many civil cases, no crime was committed. However, what can be confusing about the distinction between criminal and civil courts is that one negligence action could yield a civil and criminal case.
For example, a family could bring a wrongful death lawsuit due to a negligence action committed by another individual. If that negligence action could be considered a crime (such as vehicular manslaughter or homicide), that tragic situation could also yield a criminal case.
