Broken Bones From Truck Accidents in Chicago

The sickening crunch of bones breaking during a trucking accident is an event that anyone would prefer to forget, but not many people are able to. When you realize that your injuries were caused by the carelessness of the driver or by a defective truck component, you may oscillate between feelings of rage and helplessness. Justice demands a response.

How the Process Typically Works

The process of pursuing compensation typically works something like this:

  • Investigate to confirm that you have a valid claim
  • Notify the insurance company of your claim
  • Gather admissible evidence
  • Open negotiations with the insurance company
  • File a lawsuit, if necessary to push the insurance company into issuing a fair settlement offer
  • Continue negotiating while the lawsuit is pending
  • Go to trial if the insurance company refuses to offer an acceptable settlement
  • Collect the settlement

Our Numbers Tell the Story

Pursuing compensation for a serious injury is nothing like appearing in small claims court. You must prove every fact you assert and every dime of your damages with admissible evidence. Winning at the settlement table isn’t much easier, because the defendant won’t be motivated to negotiate at all unless you are prepared to win in court otherwise. At Malman Law, we’ve got your back, because we’ve been doing it for nearly a quarter of a century now. With us, you’re likely to avoid court and win at the settlement table, because defendants and insurance companies know about our courtroom reputation.

  • We practice only personal injury law, and we only represent victims
  • 95 percent of our clients walk away with compensation
  • We’ve represented over 15,000 personal injury victims
  • Our clients have won over $200,000,000 through our efforts

Testimonial from a Truck Accident Victim

“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

Types of Truck Accident Claims We Frequently Handle

We handle the following types of truck accident claims, among others:

Frequently Asked Questions

It all depends on whether the driver was an employee of the company at the time of the accident. The company cannot be sued for the driver’s negligence unless it actually employed the driver. Most commercial truckers are independent contractors, and independent contractors are not employees.

That is impossible to say without examining the details of your case. However, the broad categories of compensation include:

  • Medical expenses (including anticipated future medical expenses)
  • Lost earnings
  • Incidental expenses
  • Pain and suffering, mental anguish and other intangible damages
  • Punitive damages, if the driver’s conduct was outrageous

Wrongful death damages are available as an alternative if the victim died (but punitive damages will be unavailable).

Yes. Truckers are regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and by the state of Illinois. This could be helpful to your case. If you can prove that the driver violated a safety regulation, it may be a way for you to win your case. However, proving the violation of a safety regulation is not enough on its own. You must also prove causation, and you must prove that the regulatory violation added up to negligence.

Perhaps. A truck’s “18-wheeler “black box”” records:

  • average speed;
  • maximum speed;
  • times that cruise control was used;
  • braking times; and
  • other relevant information.

This information can be demanded from the defendant and used as evidence in court to reconstruct the accident.
