When you're involved in an accident and your seat belt fails to provide the protection you were counting on, you have the right to compensation for the injuries you suffer. Consult with a Chicago seat belt injury attorney for more information.
Defective seat belts can cause serious damage when you're injured in an auto accident. It happens more commonly than you might think: The piece of equipment designed to protect you can actually cause you even greater harm than if you hadn't been using it at all. That sort of harm may be the result of a manufacturing defect or simply the negligence of the driver who caused your crash.
Either way, your Chicago seat belt injury lawyer will work hard to determine who should be held accountable for your losses. At Lane & Lane, LLC, our team of highly trained professionals is at the ready to build you a claim so powerful that you can't help but be successful. You can count on us to see to it that you aren't taken advantage of and that you receive maximum compensation for your suffering.

Your seat belt injury shouldn't have happened. We rely on safety belts to protect us if we are involved in an accident. When yours has hurt you, a seat belt injury lawyer in Chicago can hold the at-fault party responsible for any negligent actions that contributed to your injuries.
Getting Your Damages Covered
To make sure we get the most out of your claim, we will consider the impact that your injuries have had and may continue to have on your life. The wages that you were unable to earn while out of work and your medical expenses in their entirety should be considered first and foremost, particularly due to the astronomical cost of healthcare.
We will also consider non-quantifiable aspects of your life, such as your pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, the loss of consortium, the effects of disfigurement, mental anguish, and the loss of household services.
There is no reason why any of the damages you've endured because of a Chicago seat belt injury should be left out when calculating the value of your claim. On the contrary, it will be critical to the success of your case that we include every loss you have dealt with as a result of your seat belt injury.
