Products liability is an area of law concerning injuries that are caused by consumer products. In Illinois, a person can sue the manufacturer, wholesaler, or retailer of a product that they bought if they are injured while using the product. It is key that the person was using the product in a way that it was meant to be used, and the product was either defective or otherwise unsafe.

Any sort of product that is sold to consumers can be the subject of a products liability lawsuit. The product in question could be a car, a toy, a garden hose, a kitchen appliance, food, a prescription drug, or any other item that someone commonly buys.

A spinal cord injury denotes severe spine damage that results in the loss of movement, range of motion or physical sensation. Annually, the United States records at least 11,000 new cases involving such injuries. Many originate from slips and falls, car accidents and personal injury accidents.

Common spinal cord injuries include contusion, compression, and spinal fractures. Such injuries could produce side effects including severe depression, emotional trauma, and respiratory problems.

A spinal cord injury is a life-changing event and can be particularly traumatic if it occurs as an accident caused by another party. Recovery could take an extended period of time, and is often very costly.

You should be concerned about traumatic brain injuries because they can happen easily from any number of causes, such as an automobile wreck, a fall, a workplace accident, or non-contact sports, like bicycling. All that is required is a bump or a blow to the head, although a penetrating head injury, such as one from a bullet, qualifies as well.

Obviously, some people experience a bump to the head or a mild concussion and they recover completely. This may have happened to you or someone you know, maybe more than once. Unfortunately, not all traumatic brain injuries are so innocuous.

A person can suffer a closed head injury that is serious, but he or she might not experience any immediate, obvious signs that something is wrong. Sometimes the symptoms that signal a serious problem may not show up for days or even weeks.

When you lose a loved one – a son or daughter, a mother or father, a wife or husband — to a sudden and unexpected death, the situation is most challenging and the pain is unimaginably deep. When that death comes about as a result of carelessness or negligence, the grief competes with anger and frustration and the suffering is often unresolved. At the time of death, no amount of money can bring back your loved one or reduce the pain caused by the tragedy.

However, if you relied on your loved one for ongoing financial support, you may have a right to seek financial recovery from a wrongful death. A committed and caring wrongful death lawyer like the lawyers at Malman Law can help you fight for your legal rights. The attorneys at Malman Law can file a wrongful death claim for you in Chicago, IL and help you seek damages from the party (or parties) responsible for the death of your family member.

Police brutality is more than just a sad occurrence that shames law-abiding police officers and hurts victims, it is a violation of the basic rights secured by the United States Constitution for regular citizens and for convicted criminals. The Civil Rights Act of 1871 says that people who have had their Constitutional rights violated may sue the violator in a state or federal court. This includes victims of police brutality, whether or not they have been convicted of a crime. A person who has suffered from police brutality, no matter the form of brutality inflicted, has the right to recover damages for personal injuries and the violation of his or her civil rights in a court of law.

There are plenty of decent, hardworking, honorable police officers in the state of Illinois, but there are also some bad ones. Police officers who do not uphold the law should be held accountable for their actions. This is where the Law Offices of Steven J. Malman & Associates, P.C. comes in.

Sadly, nursing home neglect and assisted living abuse is a disturbing reality that cannot be denied. Although nursing homes are supposed to provide a safe haven for seniors and the disabled, staffed by caring and professional caregivers, regrettably, that is often not the case. As people live longer, and the number of nursing homes and assisted living facilities increases, the number of cases of nursing home neglect, assisted living abuse, and retirement home negligence grows exponentially.

Abuse in nursing homes is disturbing and, in some cases, downright disgusting. Since 1994, as a nursing home lawyer in Chicago, IL, Steven J. Malman has seen it all. Based on our experience, we can identify warning signs of abuse and neglect, help with improvements in the care, and acquire the deserved compensation for injuries, medical costs and suffering related to neglect or abuse

In more than 20 years of practicing personal injury law in Illinois, nursing home abuse and cases of neglect comprise some of the most infuriating matters we have handled. Regrettably, most family members and residents are unaware of the resources available to them.

Thanks to the Nursing Home Care Act, carelessness, neglect, and abuse are actionable offenses. If either you or a family member develops bedsores at a nursing home, the facility should verify that the sores were inevitable and that the staff offered efficient care after the detection.

Bedsores, otherwise known as pressure ulcers, can be debilitating and even fatal to confined elderly patients. In some instances, bedsores arise due to poor decisions by nurses. In other cases, the facility’s pervasive culture of neglect and nursing home abuse may be to blame.

Unexplained fractures and falls among the elderly (65 years and older) are the principal cause of death and injuries. If you are seeking reliable resources to assist a loved one or an elderly friend who has sustained injuries in a fall, you can trust the reputable, reliable, and highly successful personal injury lawyers of Malman Law.

At Malman Law, we seek to protect and fight for our clients. The most likely cause of most fractures and falls in the elderly population are unfortunate accidents. However, a considerable number of these injuries are preventable with appropriate precautions, supervision, and resources.

When an elderly person moves into a nursing home, it becomes the facility’s responsibility to offer a hazard-free environment. Incompetence, abuse, and even neglect can result in fractures and falls.

For over ten years we have handled complex cases involving nursing care. Owing to our extensive experience, we have created an effective, comprehensive, and systematic approach for fighting for victims’ rights.

Death is an unfortunate occurrence in nursing facilities around the nation. According to published statistics, approximately 1 out of 5 to as many as 1 out of 4 deaths in the U.S. occur in nursing homes.

If you believe the death of a friend or loved one was directly or indirectly related to nursing home abuse, a Chicago wrongful death lawyer at Malman Law could offer the necessary guidance. For over ten years, the attorneys at Malman Law have worked relentlessly to fight for their clients’ rights.

Establishing the exact grounds for death can be hard, especially without an autopsy. Frequently, ailing elderly patients exhibit several conditions concurrently. Therefore, establishing whether or not neglect contributed to or caused any medical issues can prove difficult in the absence of a precise investigation.

The personal injury attorneys at Malman Law have tirelessly fought against outrageous nursing home neglect and abuse for over 15 years. Furthermore, we have dealt with issues ranging from accidents to neglect.

We adopt a methodical, client-centered, and time proven process to probe allegations, develop structured arguments, and leverage our expertise to produce results.

In today’s society we expect medical interventions to be beneficial rather than detrimental. However, the Chicago personal injury attorneys at Malman Law can prove that many of the nation’s nursing homes frequently fail in this regard.

A recently published study in the American Journal of Medicine reveals the severity of nursing home neglect. According to this study, researchers discovered that randomly chosen nursing facilities in the Northeast could have prevented more than 40% of injuries.

In another study conducted in Massachusetts, researchers discovered that almost 75% of injuries among elderly patients were preventable. These statistics underscore a great disconnect between the principles held by society on the treatment that seniors should receive and the reality of nursing home care.

Every year, 200,000 Americans die from sepsis. Reliable reports suggest that nearly 20 million people worldwide suffer from these bacterial blood infections. The Chicago Illinois personal injury lawyers here at Steven J. Malman & Associates have successfully litigated a variety of sepsis related injury claims.

Nursing homes can be havens for bacteria and viruses that cause infections. Elderly residents’ weakened immune systems, relative social isolation, and medical complications put them at much higher risk — not only for sepsis itself but also for complications from infection.

Highways and roads in Chicago, IL grow more and more crowded each year with commuters and travelers. With such congestion, auto accidents are an unavoidable reality and the frequency of such accidents increases annually. Even with better laws and insurance coverage, a car accident will sometimes cause injury as a result of someone else’s carelessness or impairment.

Some auto insurance carriers work under an assumption that unless an accident victim is killed or seriously maimed, a car accident injury case is not valid. A car injury lawyer at Malman Law understands these realities and is committed to getting you the compensation you’re entitled to as a result of an auto accident in Chicago, IL.

Since 1994, we have handled more than 1,000 car accident cases in Illinois and have experience with a range of car accident injuries, including broken bones, spinal cord injuries, internal injuries, burns, and bruises.

Most people have at some point driven while using a cell phone. However, data offered by the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society may make you rethink your actions.

According to a recent study, cell phones have caused more than 2,600 auto crash-related fatalities and over 330,000 auto crash-related injuries. Research indicates that the usage of cell phones dramatically slows down reaction time and reflexes.

Although talking on your cell phone is more socially permissible than drunk driving, the risk factors are similar if not higher. Research has repeatedly proven that there’s only a slight difference in terms of attentiveness.

Motorcycles make a visually imposing presence on today’s traffic scene and, throughout Chicago, IL you can observe everything from restored vintage cycles to modern, high-octane monster cycles. The city of Chicago, IL strictly enforces its policies regarding motorcycle driving and on-road safety. That said, motorcycle accidents can and do occur.

The freedom of motorcycling is exciting but, with minimal protection, even the most safety-conscious motorcycle drivers and passengers have a natural vulnerability to injury. Motorcyclists involved in an accident can sustain serious injuries including broken bones, brain and internal organ injury, spinal cord damage, and even death.

Public transportation is absolutely essential in a massive metropolis like Chicago. Trains and buses get us to work and back, and out on the weekends – usually quickly, conveniently and more cheaply than driving. However, “el” trains, commuter railroads and buses can be hazardous places. Of course, the city and transportation companies make every effort to ensure the safety of all passengers, but high speeds, derailment accidents, and sudden stops can all result in serious injuries and even fatalities.

If you or a loved one has been injured on the CTA, Metra or any other Illinois transpiration system, speak today with the experienced Illinois train accident attorneys of Steven J. Malman & Associates.

Passengers on Illinois public transit systems are required by law to receive to utmost care. Still, train conductors who drive under the influence, inspectors who fail to notice critical malfunctions, maintenance crews who do sub-standard work, and companies that don’t make the right decisions can put literally hundreds of lives in jeopardy.

Truck accidents in Chicago, IL are always more complex than those accidents involving cars, motorcycles, pedestrians, or bicycles because of the massive equipment involved. And personal injury cases involving truck accidents are generally more serious, due to the force of impact from a collision involving an 18-wheeler truck, a semi-truck, tractor-trailer or another large truck.

At Malman Law we are very familiar with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and state commercial vehicle regulations that govern truck drivers and truck companies operating in Chicago, IL. When determining liability or negligence in a trucking accident, we know exactly what to look for to protect your rights.

Dealing with car accidents that have caused you injury is stressful. You’ll have to wrangle with insurance providers and fight for compensation for things like medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, damages, and physical therapy, and that’s when you and the driver who hit you both have insurance. Even in the best of scenarios, negotiations can drag on for a long time and give you a serious headache. This can get very costly very fast, and can leave you feeling financially unstable.

This can be even worse if the person who hit you is underinsured or has no insurance at all. Then what do you do? Can you expect to be awarded compensation when there’s no insurance company backing them, or are you stuck with paying out of your own pocket for injuries they caused, wages they caused you to lose, and the time you need to recover?

At Steven J. Malman & Associates, our seasoned Chicago personal injury lawyers can help you for free and with no obligation. Give us a call, or request a free case evaluation—we’ll get back to you immediately.

State law limits the amount of worker’s compensation benefits you can receive, but there is no limit to the amount you can be awarded in a “retaliatory discharge” lawsuit.

Workers Compensation is a form of insurance that protects employees against work-related illness and injury. Businesses are required to have this insurance under state law. Workers compensation insurance can offer payment when an employee sustains an injury while working.

Rather than sue the employer, you can file a claim with your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance provider. Similar to other intricate bureaucratic systems fulfilling the needs of people, workers compensation law for Illinois comprises vast information, instructions, and guidelines.

This sphere of law can be confusing and complex. For this reason, it is prudent you engage the services of a proficient worker’s compensation lawyer. If you sustain an injury that has a direct association with your job, you may be eligible for workers compensation benefits.

Sustaining an injury or developing an illness is not something people think about and plan for. However, when you sustain a work-related illness or injury, it suddenly becomes essential to equip yourself with as much information and as many facts as possible.

Your insurance carrier may claim that you are liable and therefore lack a case upon learning about your injury. They may also claim that you are not entitled to benefits since you made an error while performing your duties.

These assertions may or may not be accurate, and you will need the advice of a legal expert to determine which arguments are legitimate.

When seeking medical care, you trust your medical provider to apply his or her skills responsibly to deliver premium care. However, healthcare providers at times fail to meet this expectation.

Although there is the implementation of routines and procedures, medical providers still fail to act in accordance with their specified policies. The list of imaginable medical malpractice circumstances is endless.

Malpractice occurs when physicians offer a misdiagnosis or overlook symptoms of harmful or fatal conditions. Other cases of malpractice involve the delay or interruption of treatment by insurance firms and hospital administrators.

In this era of high-tech medicine, it’s difficult to even imagine: an infant coming into the world with a birth injury. Research shows that about 7 out of every 1000 babies born in the United States suffer a disease or injury resulting from medical negligence or carelessness.

These injuries may include broken bones, brain damage, cerebral palsy, Erb’s (brachial) palsy, and other life-altering physical conditions that might have been prevented. Such injuries can have a severe and long-term impact on a young child, parents and other loved ones.

A life-long nervous system condition, Cerebral Palsy strikes in children, unborn babies or infants. Symptoms can range from minor to severe. This tragic disease makes muscle coordination and movement extremely difficult, resulting coordination difficulties, such as ataxia (failure to perform controlled movements because of inadequate muscle coordination), spasticity (over-active reflexes and tight or stiff muscles), a bent walk, the dragging of one leg or foot while walking, walking on tiptoes, and inconsistent muscle tone.

Although conditions can improve with time, there is no cure for Cerebral Palsy. Of course, this is a traumatic and overwhelming experience for a child. Some infants and children are born with the condition; however, there are the few but significant cases where Cerebral Palsy is directly brought on by a medical error. It can be the fault of the doctor or another delivery team member during the birth process.

In a disturbing report, The American Cancer Society found that nearly 1,640,000 Americans were diagnosed with cancer in 2011. Additionally, about half of all American males, and one third of all American females will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives. While these statistics are shocking, what is even more devastating is that many of these cases will fall victim of misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis or failure to diagnose.

We trust physicians, nurses, dentists, technicians and other medical professionals with our health, our safety and our lives. Unfortunately, a work-related mistake can mean the difference between life and death for the patient.

That’s why it’s so important that medical professionals take all the necessary steps to diagnose cancer and other life-threating illnesses in a timely manner. If you know someone (maybe even yourself) who has been a victim of misdiagnosis, it makes sense to seek help from our team of Chicago malpractice attorneys.

Surgeons are considerably trained and highly paid medical professionals. We expect them to do their jobs flawlessly every time. Nevertheless, surgeons don’t always meet our expectations. Of course, there is an amount of risk involved in every surgical procedure. When patients undergo surgery, they are usually asked to sign a waiver of liability. But that contract is breached when the patient is harmed due to neglect on the part of the surgeon or supporting staff.

Sometimes called the “silent epidemic” or “invisible injury”, brain injures are life-altering, traumatic occurrences. What’s more, they are often undetectable to the causal observer, and at times, even to the victim.

In the medical field, understanding the brain is still a large challenge. Even medical professionals with years of experience and training are often forced to resort to trial and error and guesswork. While that fact remains, medical professionals who treat brain injuries are still held to same standards of quality. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury that directly resulted from the mistake of a doctor, nurse, technician or other medical professional, the brain injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Steven J.

Plastic or cosmetic surgery is an investment in one’s personal appearance, and in many cases, it is a positive experience that enhances self-image. In the past decade or so, the cosmetic surgery industry has exploded. Since it’s an “elective” or non-medically necessary procedure, many plastic surgeons offer their services through commercial advertisements. Procedures have come a long way since the early days, and many new treatments have been developed – treatments that can be preformed by individuals without proper training or credentials. Because of this, cosmetic surgery is one of the most common areas for medical malpractice.

Each year, millions of Americans undergo a cosmetic procedure. It can be non-invasive like Botox and laser skin rejuvenation, or a complicated surgical procedure like breast augmentation, liposuction, rhinoplasty or tummy tucks. While many procedures are successful, there are the few but significant cases that result in serious health problems.

In many cases, administering the wrong medication can literally mean the difference between life and death. Unfortunately, we at Malman Law are no strangers to this terrible form of medical malpractice.

Did you know that medication error make up nearly one fourth of all medical malpractice cases? This can mean failure to give medication, incorrect medication, giving too much or not enough, or waiting too long to give medication. Nurses are usually the medical professionals responsible for medication errors –and consequently they are the ones who are charged with medical malpractice. But pharmacists, doctors, technicians and just about any health care worker who dispenses drugs can be held accountable.
