Chicago Car Accident Lawyer
Car Accident Attorney in Chicago, Illinois
For years, insurance companies have worked to develop policies that minimize the amount of compensation they pay to victims of car accidents caused by another person's negligence or carelessness. Some companies have even gone so far as to use computer programs to determine what a personal injury case is worth. Some companies even try to claim that unless victims are seriously maimed or killed, there's no injury case to be made. Our Chicago Car Accident Lawyers are committed to changing the way that insurance companies view car accident injuries.
Injured in a car crash? Think you have a case?
At Malman Law, we know about how busy the roads are in Chicago. We know how frequently accidents happen, and we know that every year, thousands of people are injured or killed by other drivers. If you or one of your loved ones has been in a car accident and suffered a personal injury, consider hiring an auto accident law firm for legal representation.
Since 1994, Malman Law has worked with auto accident victims and maintained a commitment to treating each case with urgency. One of our staff members is a physician with degree in law. Not only can he perform an examination of your injuries, he can also determine how much time and compensation is needed for you to recover. Contacting us as soon as possible after an accident is important, so that one of our car accident attorneys in Chicago can come inspect the scene and collect evidence that can be used to build a case. Our Chicago car crash lawyers will contact the other party's insurance provider so that proceedings can start as soon as possible.
At Steven J. Malman & Associates, our primary goal is to get you the compensation you're entitled to for injuries sustained from car accidents.

Our team of experienced car accident attorneys has filed more than 1,000 cases in Illinois, and we never back down from a fight.
Car Accident Injuries Involving Pedestrians and Bicyclists
Drivers and passengers of cars aren't the only ones eligible for compensation after a car accident. Pedestrians and bicyclists have rights, too—in 2005, 164 pedestrians across the state lost their lives because of negligent drivers, and 64,000 pedestrians were injured nationally that same year. Also in 2005, 22 cyclists died after being involved in car accidents. Malman Law has helped many cyclists and pedestrians take action and receive compensation for their injuries.
Underinsured and Uninsured Drivers
All drivers are required by the law to carry auto insurance, however some people still fail to do so. If you've been involved in an accident involving an uninsured motorist, your insurance company will have to handle a recovery claim. If the other driver is at fault and is only partially insured, your insurance company will have to collect the remaining damages. Either way, you will have to prove that the other driver was at fault and negligent, and that is how an experienced car accident and personal injury lawyer can help. At Steven J. Malman & Associates, we have experience proving negligence, and we can negotiate the amount of damages for which you should receive compensation.
