When someone else’s negligent actions cause an accident that injures you, the careless individual should be compelled to pay for your losses. A Naperville injury lawyer can help you recover maximum compensation for your injuries.
Too many accident victims are forced to cover the costs associated with injuries they suffered at the hands of an irresponsible person.

At Lane & Lane, LLC, a Naperville personal injury lawyer will work diligently to investigate the cause of your accident and determine who will be held liable for your injuries. We will do everything possible to secure a reasonable compensation award that will ease your financial worries.
Personal Injury Cases We Handle in Naperville
A broad spectrum of accidents can warrant a personal injury claim in Naperville. Basically, you need to be able to prove two things: You were injured in the accident, and someone else completely or partially caused it. Virtually any kind of accident that meets those specifications may warrant a claim for compensation.
Here are a few of the most common incidents that spark personal injury claims:
Motor Vehicle Accidents
When an automobile, tractor-trailer, bus, motorcycle, or other vehicle is involved in a collision, a suit can often be brought against another driver, the manufacturer of any defective vehicle parts, or a government road authority, among other potentially liable parties.
A premises liability accident occurs when a safety hazard that should have been cleared harms someone who is on someone else’s property. A common example of a premises liability claim is a business owner who fails to clear the walkways of ice after a snowstorm. A patron slips and suffers an injury for which the business owner will be legally responsible.
If you encounter a dog and are attacked, the owner of the canine will be held responsible for your losses because Illinois follows a strict liability law. Unless you were trespassing on the property of the dog owner or you provoked the animal to attack you, the owner of the canine will need to reimburse you for any damages you suffered in the attack.
When a consumer purchases a product and it malfunctions, the consumer can file suit against the product’s manufacturer if he or she is injured. Each individual involved in the distribution or manufacturing of each product carries certain responsibilities to consumers. When these responsibilities are not met, Naperville injury claims can result.
Compensation You Can Expect to Recover
The compensation you can recover will be determined by the seriousness of the injuries you endured and how impactful they were or will be on your life. However, you can generally expect to be compensated for any lost wages and medical bills, as well as damage to your earning potential.
We will also consider aspects of your life that have nothing to do with money, such as pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life, in our calculation of the value of your claim. Your personal injury lawyer in Naperville will work hard to maximize the value of your claim.
