Lacerations From Truck Accidents in Chicago

A laceration is a torn or jagged wound. Sometimes the wound is just through the skin, and sometimes it is all the way to the bone. Lacerations can be excruciatingly painful and can cause extensive scarring. In a truck accident, they are often caused by shattered glass. If you have suffered lacerations in a truck accident that was someone else’s fault, you need to seek compensation.

The Four Elements of a Personal Injury Claim

To win a Chicago personal injury claim, you need to prove four elements:

  1. The driver owed you a duty. Every motorist has a duty to drive safely.
  2. The driver breached that duty (by following you too closely, for example).
  3. The driver’s breach of duty caused the accident.
  4. You suffered damages from the accident (medical bills, pain and suffering, etc.).

We’ve Been Winning for Decades

Winning a personal injury claim is no easy feat either in court or at the negotiating table. Even at the negotiating table, you will have to prove your case. After all, why should an insurance company agree to settle with you if you haven’t proven you can win in court? At Malman Law, we’ve been down that road thousands of times, and we know all the games they like to play. It’s easy to spout superlatives. However, in our case, the story is told by dull, dry numbers:

  • 95 – The percentage of cases we win, and the percent of our winning clients who receive out-of-court settlements.
  • 15,000 – The number of injury victims we have served.
  • $200,000,000 – The aggregate amount of settlements and verdicts we have won for our clients.
  • 0 – The number of defendants and insurance companies who look forward to facing us in court.

A Truck Accident Victim Speaks Out

“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
