        AMAZING! I highly recommend this group. We had quite an unusual case, this group was our only glimmer of hope when our options were limited and no one would accept a complicated case. We worked closely with Colin O’Malley and his team. Words cannot do justice to how wonderful they are; highly competent, professional, very responsive, thorough and friendly. Colin went above and beyond to make himself available and to answer all our questions and concerns. If you need an excellent proficient injury lawyer that would fight for you, look no further!

        Mike took care of my case and I’m thankful for all of the help, time, and effort he put forth for me. Any time I had questions, Mike was always there to answer and then answer them again if I needed further clarification. Nobody really wants to be put in this position and dealing with a process like mine, but if you absolutely have to, go with him.

        Naperville Truck Accident Attorneys

        Have you been seriously injured in a truck accident and don’t know what to do next? Your injuries might be keeping you from doing what you need to do for your livelihood. These life-altering injuries could have been prevented had someone else not acted in a careless or negligent way and we are passionate about getting you justice for this wrongdoing. Our Naperville truck accident attorneys have brought success to many people like you and we want you to enjoy the same. Please call us as soon as you possibly can. We will set up your first, free consultation with us where you will get much-needed advice to questions that have been weighing heavy on your mind. Call today and get started.

        Illinois Statute of Limitations for Truck Accidents

        The term “statute of limitations” refers to how long you have from the date of your accident to bring a claim seeking compensation for your damages and injuries. In Illinois, your statute of limitations is two years from the date of your accident.

        We certainly hope that you reach out to our Naperville truck accident attorneys much sooner than two years because these cases can be time-sensitive, meaning you can miss out on having success if you wait too long to reach out and get started. The evidence on the scene can be cleaned up or go missing very quickly. Your witnesses can forget key details of your case right away after the accident, and the sooner you get their contact information to your attorneys the better off your case will be when they have important information that can help you and your claim.

        If you were to try to bring your claim past the two-year deadline of statute of limitation, unfortunately you would be unable to receive justice for this wrongdoing. This is a hard and fast deadline with no wiggle room. You either make the deadline or you don’t. In some cases, if you wait right up until just before the statute of limitations runs out the lawyers might not be able to help you because they won’t have sufficient time to build you a strong case.

        We can get started on your case very quickly after you are involved in an accident. We urge you to reach out as soon as you possibly can, even if you were still in the hospital bed getting treatment. We understand that justice takes time and we want as much time as we can to work on your case and get you that justice.

        Getting in touch with the lawyer is also going to help you avoid making case-ruining mistakes. There is probably so much about truck accidents that you are not aware of that lawyers can help you understand and that can be vital to the success of your case. For instance, you might not know that the insurance company of the liable party cannot be trusted when they ask to get a recorded statement from you. Our Naperville truck accident lawyers will always encourage you to not give that insurance company a recorded statement because it can hurt your claim and ruin your chance of getting justice.

        With something like a recorded statement, you may answer their questions in a way that you think is innocuous but they can twist your words and use them against you to reduce what they owe you or completely throw away your claim all together.

        Illinois Truck Accident Compensation

        The amount of compensation that someone gets for a truck accident is directly related to the details surrounding their particular case. Compensation is a very fact-based thing and it’s also situational. There’s no perfect formula that fits every accident. You can be compensated for lost wages, medical bills, and your pain and suffering. You should also be aware of the laws in Illinois regarding your compensation and the fault you bear in causing the accident. 

        Let’s say you were on the highway going roughly 5 mph over the speed limit when a truck from the left lane swerved into your car, causing you to spin out and crash into other vehicles on the highway. Of course, most of the blame is going to fall on the truck driver who, let’s say, was driving overtime and hadn’t had the sleep necessary to safely operate a vehicle. The insurance company, however, could try to say that part of the fault should be pinned on you because you were speeding slightly and, had you not been, the accident may not have ever happened. If an insurance company successfully pins you for a partial fault, it will affect the compensation that you receive.

        In Illinois, if you are deemed 50% at fault or more, you will not be allowed to receive any compensation. This is the way the law works. If you were deemed at fault for anything under 50% at fault you can receive a reduced compensation award.

        Going back to the original example of someone going slightly over the speed limit but being hit by a truck driver who was driving drowsy, we need to look at how that would affect compensation. Let’s say that your damages and injuries came out to be $100,000. Let’s also say that the insurance company successfully blamed 20% of the fault on you for causing the accident. If that were to happen, then 20% of your compensation award would no longer be yours. You would collect $80,000 of your $100,000 award to account for your fault in the accident.

        Our Naperville truck accident attorneys work diligently to ensure that the insurance company does not pin any unnecessary blame on you. We don’t want to see you lose out on justice because of the tricks insurance companies can use on you.

        For you to get a full understanding of how compensation works, we need to take a deeper look into what compensation you can receive. A regular type of compensation that many people have received before is called punitive damages. Punitive damages are meant to give you compensation for damages suffered based on someone’s malicious intent or gross negligence. You might receive punitive damages if the truck accident company knew that they hired someone with a drinking problem and their intoxicated employee crashed into your car on the highway.

        More common forms of compensation include economic damages and non-economic damages.

        Economic damages include all of the ways in which you’ve lost money because of the truck accident. It includes all the medical bills that you’ve had to pay, including ambulance rides, ER visits, follow-up doctor visits, surgeries and medication etc.

        Non-economic damages are all of the ways in which your life was affected. If you are no longer able to pick up your child because of a back injury related to the truck accident, that’s a non-economic damage. Your pain and suffering are also non-economic damages.

        Tip for a Successful Case

        One of the biggest tips we can give clients or potential clients if they want to have a successful claim is to tell them to receive immediate and comprehensive medical care. We will never know what the value of your case is until we understand what your maximum medical recovery will be. That matters because we need to know how long you’re going to be in pain and what your expected recovery is going to be. This tells us what medical treatment you need, how long you’ll be out of work, and how long your injuries are going to continue to impact your life financially, physically and emotionally.

        We also know that clients who have delayed seeking medical attention have raised the suspicions of insurance companies who want nothing more than to say that you lied about how you were hurt or claim you lied about how badly you were hurt so they can reduce the value of your compensation or throw away your case altogether.
