Joliet Personal Injury Lawyer

Romeoville personal injury lawsuit attorney

Attorney for Car Crashes, Defective Products, and Premises Liability in Plainfield, Naperville, and Will County

A serious injury can affect a person and their family financially, while also causing a great deal of difficulty in their lives. In many cases, injury victims are uncertain about their rights and the legal options available to them, and they may struggle to pick up the pieces as they deal with major medical expenses, loss of income, and other issues. Fortunately, injured individuals can take legal action against a person or company that was responsible for their injuries, and they can receive financial compensation that addresses the ways their lives have been affected. To be successful in these types of cases, victims need to secure representation from an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Michael J. Lichner provides dedicated representation to clients who have suffered personal injuries. Throughout more than 10 years of legal experience, he has helped injury victims obtain millions of dollars in compensation. Whether he is negotiating on your behalf with insurance companies or pursuing lawsuits against people or organizations who were responsible for your injuries, he will fight to protect your rights and work to make sure you will be fully compensated for your damages.

Legal Help With Multiple Types of Personal Injuries

With the right attorney on your side, you will ensure you are following the correct steps to recover the maximum financial compensation for your injuries. If you have a personal injury case, we will explain the legal process followed during a personal injury case, and we will provide a checklist of the records and information that can demonstrate liability for your injuries and ensure that all of your damages will be addressed. We provide representation in a wide variety of different types of injury cases, including:

  • Car crash injuries - A negligent driver may be held responsible for injuries and damages suffered in a motor vehicle collision. We assist with rear-end collisions, T-bone collisions, head-on collisions, rollover crashes, vehicle ejections, collisions caused by distracted driving or drunk driving, and crashes involving uninsured or underinsured drivers.
  • Uber, Lyft, limo, and rideshare injuries - Determining liability can sometimes be difficult in crashes involving for-hire vehicles, and rideshare companies will often attempt to avoid liability by claiming that their drivers are independent contractors instead of employees.
  • Trucking injuries - Truck drivers or trucking companies may be liable for collisions caused by driver fatigue, violations of traffic laws, improper truck maintenance, or improperly loaded or secured cargo.
  • Motorcycle crash injuries - Motorcyclists are likely to be seriously injured in a collision with another vehicle, and in many cases, these crashes are caused by negligent drivers who do not notice motorcycles on the road around them.
  • Pedestrian and bike injuries - Negligent drivers can inflict serious injuries in collisions with people on foot or bicyclists who are sharing the road with their vehicles.
  • Construction site injuries - People who work at construction sites or pedestrians or drivers who are traveling nearby may be injured by defective tools, negligent equipment operation, falling objects, electrocution, or structural collapse.
  • Products liability - The manufacturer, distributor, or seller of a defective or dangerous product may be held liable for injuries suffered by the product's users.
  • Dog bites and attacks - A dog's owner may be held liable for injuries suffered by the victims of a dog bite or attack, as long as the injured person did not provoke the dog and was allowed to be in the location where the attack occurred.
  • Premises liability - Property owners or tenants may be held liable for injuries to visitors caused by hazards on their property. We provide representation in slip, trip, and fall cases, as well as injuries that occur at restaurants or entertainment venues.
  • Traumatic brain injuries - Injuries that affect the brain can lead to multiple long-term health issues, including chronic headaches, memory loss, mood disorders, sensory issues, seizures, speech and language disorders, or intellectual disabilities.
  • Wrongful death - Family members of a person who was killed because of someone's negligence or intentional actions can pursue compensation for damages including medical expenses, funeral and burial costs, lost income, loss of companionship, and emotional trauma.
