Legal Profile: Truck Accidents

    Last updated 7 months ago

    Because of their enormous size, semi-trucks and other large trucks are more likely to cause fatal accidents than other vehicles. They require additional stopping time when they brake, and they cause an unusually large amount of damage when they hit other vehicles. Read on for more information about these serious collisions.

    When assessing who is at fault for a truck accident, there are a number of factors to consider. The truck driver could have made an error, the trucking company could have coerced the driver into pursuing unsafe work practices, or the truck manufacturer could have produced a defective product. Because of this large number of possible factors, it can be difficult to assign liability for a crash caused by a semi-truck.

    If you’ve been injured by a large truck, call Malman Law in Chicago today at (312) 983-6193. We have experience with these serious accidents and can help you get the justice you deserve.

    How a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Protect Your Rights

    Last updated 7 months ago

    If you’ve been in an accident, you need someone to fight for your rights. Though you may think this is your insurance company’s job, your insurance company has only one objective: to settle your claim as quickly and cheaply as possible. This does not always coincide with protecting your rights. For full protection and advocacy, you need an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side. Here are some of the rights a personal injury lawyer will help you protect.

    • The right to medical care. If you’re injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you deserve compensation for your medical treatment, both immediate and ongoing, for as long as it takes to recover from your injuries.
    • The right to have your property repaired. If your car or other property has been damaged, it needs to be repaired so that you can go about your daily life, like you did before your accident.
    • The right to be compensated for pain and suffering. The damage you sustain from an accident isn’t just measured by the cost of your treatment; you also suffer emotional and physical pain. You deserve compensation for this cost, as well.
    • The right to be compensated for lost income. If you are injured and can no longer work, it has a significant effect on your family’s financial situation. To correct this, you need compensation for income you lost while recovering or because of an inability to return to work.
    • The right to damages for a disability or disfigurement. An accident that leaves you disfigured or disabled has permanently affected your life and may cause you prolonged physical or emotional pain and suffering. You deserve financial compensation for this drastic change to your life.

    After an accident, you need help exercising your rights and getting your life back to the way it was. Let Malman Law help you protect these rights by advocating on your behalf in court. Call (312) 983-6193 to reach our Chicago office.
