Chicago, IL Truck Accident Lawyer
Truck accidents in Chicago, IL are always more complex than those accidents involving cars, motorcycles, pedestrians, or bicycles because of the massive equipment involved. And personal injury cases involving truck accidents are generally more serious, due to the force of impact from a collision involving an 18-wheeler truck, a semi-truck, tractor-trailer or another large truck.
At Malman Law we are very familiar with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and state commercial vehicle regulations that govern truck drivers and truck companies operating in Chicago, IL. When determining liability or negligence in a trucking accident, we know exactly what to look for to protect your rights.
Truck Accident Injuries Can Be Serious
Commonly-seen injuries in a trucking accident — broken bones, severed limbs, disfiguring burns, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries – often require longer recovery times. Some are even classified as permanent and can be difficult to assess. Our on-staff physician/lawyer can evaluate your injuries and determine the costs of your current treatments and future care before your truck accident claim is filed.
