Head Injuries From Truck Accidents in Chicago

Head injuries, particularly brain injuries, are among the most frightening and potentially debilitating injuries imaginable, sometimes casing lifelong disability.  If your injury was caused by a careless truck driver, justice demands a response. You are entitled to full compensation for your injuries, and your claim might be worth a lot more than you think.

What Are the Symptoms of a Head Injury?

The symptoms of a head injury may show up right away, but they might not manifest until some time after the accident. Some of the most common symptoms include:

  • Fatigue
  • Sleepiness
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Disorientation
  • Nausea
  • Slow breathing
  • Numbness or tingling in the hands and feet
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Dizziness
  • Blackouts

If you experience some of these symptoms after the accident, seek medical attention immediately for your own safety and for the sake of the validity of your claim..

Our Track Record Speaks Volumes

At Malman Law, we’ve been representing personal injury victims since 1994. We don’t practice any other kind of law and we never represent defendants – only victims. The results have been so extraordinary that simply informing the opposing party that you have retained Malman Law to represent you can have a positive effect on your case. Over the years we have represented over 15,000 clients, and 95 percent of them have walked away winners. Of those who win, the great majority receive private settlements without ever having to walk into a courtroom. All told, opposing parties have coughed up over $200,000,000 in favor of our clients. Insurance companies don’t like us very much and we don’t blame them.

Client Testimonial

“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

We Handle the Following Types of Truck Accident Cases…and More:

Frequently Asked Questions

Some of the most-used defenses (common to many different types of injury) are:

  • Expiration of the statute of limitations (two years in most cases, but exceptions exist)
  • The accident was at least 50 percent the victim’s fault
  • The injury already existed before the accident occurred

Liability insurance requirements for commercial truckers must offer:

  • $750,000 in coverage for truckers carrying most types of cargo;
  • $1,000,000 for carriers of autos and certain hazardous materials; and
  • $5,000,000 for truckers who haul the most dangerous hazardous materials (explosives, for example).

Below are some examples of the type of evidence you may need to prove a head injury:

  • A police report
  • Photographs of the accident scene
  • Eyewitness testimony
  • Expert medical testimony
  • Your medical records
  • Your medical  bills

Other evidence may also be required.

Yes, within limits. The following healthcare providers are entitled to place liens on future compensation:

  • Hospitals
  • Doctors
  • Dentists
  • Physical therapists
  • Chiropractors

The lien(s) cannot total more than 40 percent of your recovery.

Maximum medical improvement (MMI) is the point at which your condition has improved as much as it likely ever will. It is difficult to calculate future damages until you have reached MMI.

Our Zero Fee Guarantee Is What Puts Us on the Same Side

The business interests of insurance companies are inherently opposed to yours – every dollar they award you is a dollar less for them. With us it’s different. Since our fee is calculated as a percentage of your recovery, the more you win, the more we win. This also means that you’ll never owe us a dime until and unless your compensation is already in the bank.

    I was rear-ended by a semi-truck on my way to work. I was transported to the hospital and my car was totaled. In the aftermath, Dan Petrich and Anna Schmidt from Malman Law helped me get set up with physical therapy and negotiated with the insurance companies to make sure the resulting settlement would cover my medical bills and a rental car until I could get a new car. I would highly recommend their services.
