Product liability refers to the liability of any or all parties along the chain of manufacturing or distribution of a particular product for any damage caused by that product. This will apply to the manufacturer of individual component parts, or the assembling manufacturer, the designer, the wholesaler, and even the retail store owner. Product liability covers both the consumer of the product and also anyone to whom the product was given or loaned.
An insurance claim is a request for benefits or compensation for damages that result from a motor vehicle accident. The claim is typically made with the insurance company representing the driver who is at fault.  Both drivers will need to report the accident to their insurance companies, however, in accordance to the requirements of their individual policies. Many car insurance claims are made each day around the nation, and the process has become relatively standardized. That doesn’t mean the insurance company won’t push back if they believe they shouldn’t recognize their liability, but the process will be similar to most other accidents of the same type.
The healthcare system is a large and complicated process to navigate through, and you tend to be navigating through it when you aren’t at your best. You are likely in pain or ill, and the doctors, nurses, and techs are quite possibly overworked and understaffed, which can create unfortunate opportunities for errors to occur.

Dictionary definition of word negligence, selective focus.
Per se negligence laws are a useful tool in a lawsuit when evidence of negligence is harder to acquire. If you are trying to win a slip and fall settlement, for example, your attorney will likely approach the case in a manner that fits a standard negligence case. However, if you’ve been hit by a drunk driver or otherwise injured in a car accident by someone who violated traffic laws and was cited in the process, you may be able to use negligence per se laws to sue for damages due to the injuries you sustained.

If you’ve been injured on the job, you’ll need to file a claim first with the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission. In Illinois, you’re allowed to select your own doctor to treat workers’ comp injuries. This is so that you have a better chance of securing a physician who has your recovery and best interests in mind, rather than one who has a vested interest in the insurance company’s profits.  You will, however, need to secure a doctor who accepts workers’ comp insurance, so make sure you let them know upfront that you were injured on the job, and it will be the company’s insurance policy paying. The doctor will need to know this information ahead of time because the insurer will certainly require the doctor to obtain authorization before performing certain treatments or tests.
