Can I Pursue Multiple Personal Injury Claims for the Same Injury?
If more than one person is responsible for your personal injury, you may pursue claims against all parties involved. The more parties are involved, the more complex the case will be, making it all the more important to enlist the services of an experienced Illinois personal injury attorney.
How Can I Initiate a Claim Against Multiple Parties?
As with any other personal injury claim, you must be able to prove that that your injury was caused by the negligence of a party of parties. If you can prove that negligence on the part of all parties involved led to your personal injury, you may be able to initiate a claim against multiple parties for the same injury.
What constitutes negligence will vary from case to case. It is common for the defendant’s behavior to be compared with that of an average reasonable person. For example: a reasonable person would not browse the internet while driving, and if they caused an accident by doing so, that would constitute negligence on their part.
It is important to be aware that negligence is not a one-size-fits-all concept. That is why it is important to consult a Illinois personal injury lawyer, who can review the facts of the case and help you determine whether your injury was caused by negligence.
