Can You Sue in Illinois?

If you live in Illinois but you are injured outside of the state while on vacation or, alternatively, if you live in another state but are injured while on vacation in Illinois, can you file the lawsuit in Illinois? It is important when considering filing a lawsuit to understand what venue you can file in. Typically, you will be required to comply with the rules of venue that require filing in either the county where the defendant resides, where the incident occurred or, if a business is involved, where it does business. However, there are exceptions. Because venue issues and selections can become complicated based on circumstances, if you have any questions about a case and the applicable venue options available to you, please contact our law firm.
