Dedicated Whiplash and Neck Injuries Lawyers in Chicago

Chicago’s Trusted Personal Injury Attorneys Serving Whiplash and Neck Injury Victims

Whiplash is an injury to the soft tissues of your neck that occurs when your head is thrown violently backward and then forward again, as often occurs during a car accident. In some circles, however, the word “whiplash” it is so synonymous with bogus personal injury claims that it has become a joke. Anyone who has ever suffered whiplash, however, will tell you that whiplash is no laughing matter.

The Problem With Insurance Companies

Most neck injury claims are paid by insurance companies, typically auto insurance companies. Despite their efforts to convince you that they are a good neighbor for a friend in need, the reality is that their interests are directly adverse to yours. The more money they pay you the less money they can keep, and vice versa. Here are some of their favorite tricks:

  • Bait and switch: Agreeing to accept liability and then partially backing off later, after you have already incurred expenses (“But this procedure was unnecessary…”)
  • Rushing to the hospital to get your signature on an inadequate settlement agreement while you are still in shellshock from the accident that injured you.
  • Sweet-talking you into thinking that you don’t need a lawyer.

The Malman Law Difference

Unlike insurance companies, our interests are not adverse to yours. In fact, they are in complete harmony. We have seen to that by arranging our fee structure so that you will owe us nothing until your money actually arrives. At that point, your legal fee is calculated as a percentage of your recovery. We don’t make money unless you do, and that’s just the way we like it.

Our Practice Areas

The basic principles of personal injury law are largely the same no matter how you are injured. Below is a partial list of the types of cases we handle:

Frequently Asked Questions

Whiplash can be quite traumatic, resulting in symptoms such as:

  • Neck pain
  • Stiffness
  • Loss of motion in the neck
  • Numbness and tingling in the arms
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue

Other symptoms, such as loss of memory and depression, are possible as well.

Yes. In Illinois, a night club is liable for a drunken driving accident if it sold the defendant alcohol prior to the accident, and if the sale of alcohol to the defendant was a “proximate cause” of the accident. You don’t even have to prove that the defendant was already intoxicated at the time he was served.

Your damages might include:

  • Medical expenses (including anticipated future expenses)
  • Lost wages for the time you were out of work
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages (sometimes awarded)

Although nothing is certain, it is possible that your damages might total several times the amount of your medical expenses.

It is best to seek medical treatment immediately, even if you don’t think you were injured. Even a low-impact collision can cause a neck injury. Moreover, in some cases symptoms can be delayed. If you delay seeking medical treatment because you don’t feel any pain yet, you might damage your claim.

Don’t Let the Glue of Circumstance Harden Around Your Feet With Your Whiplash and Neck Injury Claim

Your claim might be worth a lot more than you think it is, especially if your injury is long-term or if it causes you severe pain. The sooner you begin pursuing your claim in earnest, the fresher the evidence will be and the better your chances of full compensation will be. The time to act is now.

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
