Diligent Workers’ Compensation Lawyers for Truck Drivers Injured on the Job in Chicago

Truck drivers who suffer work-related injuries are often eligible for workers’ compensation.

At Malman Law, we help truck drivers in the greater Chicago area collect maximum benefits for their medical bills and other losses.

Despite safety measures and precautions required under both state and federal law, numerous truck drivers still find themselves suffering from serious injuries every year. These injuries often lead to piles of unpaid medical bills, and injured drivers frequently miss extensive time from work. As a result, many truckers face financial issues in addition to struggling with their physical impairments and disabilities.

The good news is that under Illinois law, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation. If you are eligible, it is critical that you take action to protect your legal rights. Many truck drivers either (i) don’t realize they are eligible, or (ii) make mistakes when filing their claims. In both cases, they end up leaving a significant amount of money on the table. At Malman Law, our experienced workers’ compensation lawyers can make sure you receive the benefits you deserve.

Are You a Truck Driver Who Has Been Injured on the Job?

The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act provides financial benefits for workers who have been injured on the job. As long as your employer has insurance (and most trucking companies in Illinois are required to have workers’ comp insurance), you can seek “no-fault” benefits for your work-related injuries. This includes injuries resulting from:

  • Collisions with other vehicles
  • Truck accidents on wet or icy roads
  • Truck accidents caused by unsecured or excess cargo
  • Accidents involving other dangerous truck or road conditions
  • Falling from the truck cab
  • Accidents involving loading and unloading of cargo
  • Roadside maintenance and repairs

Workers’ Compensation Benefits in Illinois

In Illinois, the benefits available under workers’ comp can be substantial. To make sure you protect your rights, it is important that you speak with a lawyer right away. If you wait, you could jeopardize your ability to recover full compensation for your losses. Workers’ compensation benefits in Illinois include:

  • Medical coverage for treatment, surgery, and recovery
  • Vocational rehabilitation and maintenance costs
  • Disability benefits (for either total or partial disability)

About Workers’ Compensation Disability Benefits

Disability benefits provide a substitute for your wages while you are unable to work as a result of your injuries. In Illinois, both temporary and permanent disability benefits are available. If you will eventually be able to return to work, temporary disability benefits provide coverage while you are recuperating. Permanent disability benefits provide long-term coverage for drivers whose injuries prevent them from getting back behind the wheel.

Hire an Experienced Chicago Attorney to Help You File for Workers’ Compensation

As you can see, making sure you collect workers’ compensation can be critical to protecting yourself and your family from the financial burdens of your injuries. You should not have to bear the cost of a work-related accident. In many cases, workers’ comp may be your only option for seeking a financial recovery. To make sure you receive full compensation, let our experienced lawyers and expert staff help you file your workers’ compensation claim.

Has Your Employer Denied Your Workers’ Compensation Claim?

We regularly hear from truck drivers and other individuals who have unsuccessfully tried to file for workers’ compensation. If you have filed and your employer or their insurance company has denied your claim, it is not too late to seek help. Whether you made a mistake in the process or you were wrongfully denied benefits, Malman Law can make sure you receive the benefits to which you are legally entitled.

Nevertheless, once your claim has been denied, you may be fighting an uphill battle. To give yourself the best chance at a full financial recovery, we urge you to contact us right away.

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
