If you drive a vehicle for work, you may be concerned about the potential of being involved n an accident while on the job. While some accidents are unavoidable, there are a few things you can do while driving a commercial vehicle that will lower your chances of getting into an accident. Learn to recognize certain driving situations that can be dangerous, such as merging onto and off of expressways. Assume that other drivers will make mistakes in their driving so you can anticipate what to do. It’s also important to feel very comfortable with the vehicle you’re driving so that you can anticipate how it will handle in traffic and other situations.
Remember not to text or talk on the phone while you’re behind the wheel, as this can distract you from things going on in traffic (and in many municipalities, is illegal). Always remain alert when you’re using a commercial vehicle, and give yourself extra time and space to stop suddenly. Make sure the company regularly maintains their vehicles, as well, to avoid having to deal with accidents caused by faulty mechanics.
Can an Illinois personal injury lawyer help you get money for an accident that happened months or even years ago? What if you got hurt at work? Is it too late to file a workers’ compensation claim in Illinois?
Although Illinois law does stipulate that claims must be filed within a certain amount of time – known as the statute of limitations – you may still have a case. But if that time limit lapses, you may be out of legal options – even if the damage you suffered was real, significant, and can be clearly traced to another party’s negligence, carelessness, or aggression.
We at Malman Law can talk to you today – right now – to determine whether you have a case; and, if so, how much time you have left to file a claim. For most injury victims, time is indeed of the essence. Insurance companies immediately get to work after accidents, fortifying themselves against having to pay out settlements. The longer you wait to file a claim or seek benefits, the more difficult it can be to assemble evidence to support your claim (i.e. photographs of the accident scene, names and addresses of eyewitnesses, etc.) Your memory of events may grow foggier, and it can become more difficult to prove that your injuries stemmed specifically from your accident.
While it would be nearly impossible to collect a truly accurate number for how many personal injury cases are filed each year in the U.S., a rough estimate has been projected at about 700,000. That’s a lot of injuries—some of which surely could have been prevented. The types of personal injury lawsuits run the gamut from slip and fall accidents and construction accidents to dog bites and wrongful death suits, to product liability and civil rights violation cases.
If you have a personal injury case you need help with, talking with an attorney is the best route to go. Contact the aggressive personal injury attorneys of Malman Law today!
As practicing Chicago personal injury attorneys for almost 25 years, we at Malman Law are often asked “how long will my case take?”
Unfortunately, outside of the context of your case, we can’t make accurate predictions. Some matters resolve in a few short months. Other cases – particularly complex matters that require lots of litigation and ultimately go to trial – can stretch on for years.
Fortunately, our personal injury and workers’ compensation lawyers in Chicago have built a streamlined system to obtain maximum compensation in the shortest amount of time. Our attorneys boast over 40 years of combined litigation experience, and we pride ourselves on excellent customer service.
Injury clients often feel anxiety because of uncertainty. If you don’t know if or when you will collect money, the disconnect between what you have and what you might have causes psychological strain. When the duration of that uncertainty itself is uncertain, that strain can evolve into profound anxiety. This is true for all people, injured or not. So on top of these feelings, injured clients must also contend with financial stresses (such as lost wages), rehabilitation (which can be time consuming and physically taxing), and emotional trauma.
To counter these stresses and strains, our Il personal injury lawyers will be there for you every step of the way. From your initial consultation – which is free, confidential, and no obligation – through the investigation of your claim and onto settlement hearings or trial (if need be) – we’ll answer your questions, explain our strategies and tactics in clear terms, and keep you in the loop.
Workers’ compensation benefits will vary from person to person, injury to injury. For example, some people may receive medical bill compensation, while others may need more complicated forms of compensation, such as disability benefits, which are calculated by taking an average of the person’s wages and paying out a percentage of that.
In terms of how long a person can receive workers’ compensation benefits, again, this depends on the injury. If you lose the ability to use a certain body part, the amount of time that you are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits will vary from part to part.
For more minor injuries that do not result in temporary or permanent disabilities, workers’ compensation benefits will typically involve a worker being paid for wages lost and being reimbursed for medical costs.
2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
