Damage to your internal organs can have serious immediate and long-term risks. If you suffered internal organ damage in a work-related accident in the Chicagoland area, Malman Law can help you seek rightful compensation.
When you are involved in a work-related accident, it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible. There are many reasons why, but one of the most important is that – whether the accident involved a collision, impact, or slip-and-fall – you could have suffered dangerous internal injuries. In particular, internal organ damage can be an extremely serious injury that can quickly become much worse without a proper diagnosis and medical care.
Unfortunately, in many cases, employers and their insurance companies make it difficult and confusing for workers to get the help they need after a job-related injury. Obtaining workers’ compensation benefits can be even more of a challenge. At Malman Law, we have decades of experience helping injured Chicago workers get the medical treatment and receive the financial benefits they deserve.
Internal organs are both vital and extremely delicate. All types of trauma can lead to serious injuries, whether resulting from the trauma directly or as a result of some other injury, such as a displaced broken bone. Some of the most common trauma-related types of internal organ damage include:
At Malman Law, we represent clients who have suffered these and other types of internal organ damage in claims for workers’ compensation.
When seeking workers’ compensation benefits for internal organ damage, there are numerous factors that come into play. In order to receive maximum benefits – and avoid having to pay your own medical bills for your work-related injury – it is important to have a thorough understanding of the full impact of the accident. At Malman Law, we can help you obtain a thorough medical diagnosis and treatment plan so that you can make sure you aren’t leaving any money on the table.

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
