Dedicated Intersection Accidents Lawyers in Chicago

Chicago’s Qualified Personal Injury Attorneys Serving Intersection Accident Victims

Close to half of all traffic accidents occur at intersections, and the accident is usually the fault of one of the motorists. If you have been injured in an intersection accident and you are laid up in the hospital or trying to recover at home, you are not in a good position to be negotiating with an auto insurance company, Insurance companies know this, and they take advantage of it. They won’t take advantage of any of our clients, however, because we won’t let them.  At Malman Law, it really makes us angry when insurance companies try to take advantage of our client’s vulnerability simply to pad their own bottom line. We know all of their tricks, and we won’t fall for a single one of them.

Common Insurance Company Tricks

It is impossible to list all of the sharp negotiating tactics available to a skilled insurance adjustor. Some of the most common, however, are:

  • Bait and switch (agreeing to “accept liability” and then denying most of your claim later)
  • Sending a representative to the hospital while you are still in pain to collect your signature on a quick but inadequate settlement agreement
  • Lulling you into missing the statute of limitation deadlines through numerous small delays

The Numbers Speak for Themselves

In 25 years of practicing personal injury law, we have won compensation for over 20,000 clients. Insurance companies know our name, and their attitude towards settlement negotiations tends to change rather quickly when they discover that we are the ones representing the injured party. We really can’t blame them for that, since we win 95 percent of our cases.

A Word From One of Our Clients

“Two 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.” – Malman Law Client

Our Practice Areas

Below is an incomplete list of the kinds of cases we handle:

Frequently Asked Questions

The rules for approaching an intersection are simple:

  • Yield to whoever will reach the intersection first.
  • If you are approaching the intersection at the same time as another vehicle, yield to the other vehicle if it is to your right.
  • Of course, you don’t have to yield if the other vehicle is required to stop at the intersection (if you have a green light, for example).

The four most common causes of intersection accidents are:

  • Running a stop light or stop sign
  • Making an illegal U-turn. In Illinois, U-turns at intersections are illegal unless posted otherwise.
  • Turning into oncoming traffic
  • Navigating a rural intersection that has no stoplight or stop sign

No, because they will be trying to elicit a statement from you that they can use against you later. Instead, send a letter notifying the at-fault driver’s insurance company of the accident. Include:

  • Your name
  • The place and date of the accident
  • A brief description of your injury, and
  • The date of the letter

Keep a copy of the letter for your records. It is best to have your lawyer check over the letter before you send it.

Illinois allows punitive damages only if you also win compensatory damages. To win punitive damages, you must prove that the defendant’s conduct was outrageous in some way. While a DUI case is a good candidate for punitive damages, there is no guarantee.

Yes he can, within limits. The following parties are entitled to place such a lien:

  • Hospitals
  • Doctors
  • Dentists
  • Physical therapists
  • Chiropractors

In general, the total amount of all liens combined cannot exceed 40 percent of your recovery.

Fortune Favors the Bold With Your Intersection Accident Claim

In personal injury law, what you can prove matters more than what actually happened – and evidence grows stale over time. That is why it is important to act quickly to establish your claim. Call us today at 1-888-836-5975 or contact us online for a free initial consultation. We can even meet you at the hospital if you so require.
