Products Liability

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. It is very important that you contact a skilled and proven Chicago Personal Injury Attorney to discuss your injuries as a result of a consumer product.

Traumatic Brain Injury

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.

Wrongful Death

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. Having a compassionate and experienced Chicago injury lawyer by your side at this time can help you through this difficult time.

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 Chicago personal injury attorneys at Malman Law can file a wrongful death claim for you and help you seek damages from the party (or parties) responsible for the death of your family member.

Policy Brutality / Civil Rights Violation

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 Chicago personal injury lawyers at Malman Law 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.

Having a compassionate and dedicated Chicago nursing home abuse lawyer by your side can help if abuse issues arise.

Abuse in nursing homes is disturbing and, in some cases, downright disgusting. Since 1994, as a nursing home injury lawyer in Chicago, IL, Steven J. Malman has seen it all.

In more than 25 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.

Medication Errors

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

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.

Train Accidents

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.

Uninsured Motorists

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?

Workers’ Compensation Benefits

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.

Types of Workers’ Compensation Injuries

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.

Cerebral Palsy

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 medical malpractice attorneys.

Surgical Errors

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.

Brain Injuries

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 personal injury attorneys at Malman Law in Chicago, IL can help.

Obstetrical & Gynecological Malpractice

Obstetricians and gynecologists are trusted with women’s reproductive health, as well as the health and safety of unborn children. From conception through delivery, OBGYNs are expected to provide quality medical care and preventative treatment to both mother and baby.

Did your OBGYN practitioner fail to meet acceptable standards of care? Did you undergo an operation or procedure that was later found to be unnecessary? Was your disease or condition not diagnosed and treated within a reasonable time frame? If you have experienced a situation where you did not receive the proper care, leading to injury or illness, it makes sense to speak to one of our qualified medical malpractice lawyers. We care about you, your quality of life, and that of your child. We have been fighting for the rights of the injured since 1994, and we can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Plastic Surgery Error

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.

Medication Errors

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.

Vast Experience

Since 1994, our Illinois personal injury attorneys have helped more than 25,000 claimants. We have handled practically every kind of personal injury and workers’ comp case that there is, and our knowledge of injury Law is vast and complete.


Our Chicago workers’ comp and personal injury lawyers have won millions of dollars for clients over the years, including cases that carried six, seven, and eight figure settlements.



Client Focus

Our approach, though systematic, is never “cookie cutter” or the same for each client. Each case we deal with in Illinois, regardless if it’s injury or workers’ comp, is different. Your case required a lot of attention and focus, and our attorneys listen to your wants and needs.




Frequently asked questions

Answers to some of the most common personal injury questions we’re asked.




If you drive a vehicle for work, you may be concerned about the potential of being involved n an accident while on the job. While some accidents are unavoidable, there are a few things you can do while driving a commercial vehicle that will lower your chances of getting into an accident. Learn to recognize certain driving situations that can be dangerous, such as merging onto and off of expressways. Assume that other drivers will make mistakes in their driving so you can anticipate what to do. It’s also important to feel very comfortable with the vehicle you’re driving so that you can anticipate how it will handle in traffic and other situations.

Remember not to text or talk on the phone while you’re behind the wheel, as this can distract you from things going on in traffic (and in many municipalities, is illegal). Always remain alert when you’re using a commercial vehicle, and give yourself extra time and space to stop suddenly. Make sure the company regularly maintains their vehicles, as well, to avoid having to deal with accidents caused by faulty mechanics.



Can an Illinois personal injury lawyer help you get money for an accident that happened months or even years ago? What if you got hurt at work? Is it too late to file a workers’ compensation claim in Illinois?

Although Illinois law does stipulate that claims must be filed within a certain amount of time – known as the statute of limitations – you may still have a case. But if that time limit lapses, you may be out of legal options – even if the damage you suffered was real, significant, and can be clearly traced to another party’s negligence, carelessness, or aggression.

We at Malman Law can talk to you today – right now – to determine whether you have a case; and, if so, how much time you have left to file a claim. For most injury victims, time is indeed of the essence. Insurance companies immediately get to work after accidents, fortifying themselves against having to pay out settlements. The longer you wait to file a claim or seek benefits, the more difficult it can be to assemble evidence to support your claim (i.e. photographs of the accident scene, names and addresses of eyewitnesses, etc.) Your memory of events may grow foggier, and it can become more difficult to prove that your injuries stemmed specifically from your accident.



While it would be nearly impossible to collect a truly accurate number for how many personal injury cases are filed each year in the U.S., a rough estimate has been projected at about 700,000. That’s a lot of injuries—some of which surely could have been prevented. The types of personal injury lawsuits run the gamut from slip and fall accidents and construction accidents to dog bites and wrongful death suits, to product liability and civil rights violation cases.

If you have a personal injury case you need help with, talking with an attorney is the best route to go. Contact the aggressive personal injury attorneys of Malman Law today!



As practicing Chicago personal injury attorneys for almost 25 years, we at Malman Law are often asked “how long will my case take?”

Unfortunately, outside of the context of your case, we can’t make accurate predictions. Some matters resolve in a few short months. Other cases – particularly complex matters that require lots of litigation and ultimately go to trial – can stretch on for years.

Fortunately, our personal injury and workers’ compensation lawyers in Chicago have built a streamlined system to obtain maximum compensation in the shortest amount of time. Our attorneys boast over 40 years of combined litigation experience, and we pride ourselves on excellent customer service.

Injury clients often feel anxiety because of uncertainty. If you don’t know if or when you will collect money, the disconnect between what you have and what you might have causes psychological strain. When the duration of that uncertainty itself is uncertain, that strain can evolve into profound anxiety. This is true for all people, injured or not. So on top of these feelings, injured clients must also contend with financial stresses (such as lost wages), rehabilitation (which can be time consuming and physically taxing), and emotional trauma.

To counter these stresses and strains, our Il personal injury lawyers will be there for you every step of the way. From your initial consultation – which is free, confidential, and no obligation – through the investigation of your claim and onto settlement hearings or trial (if need be) – we’ll answer your questions, explain our strategies and tactics in clear terms, and keep you in the loop.



Workers’ compensation benefits will vary from person to person, injury to injury. For example, some people may receive medical bill compensation, while others may need more complicated forms of compensation, such as disability benefits, which are calculated by taking an average of the person’s wages and paying out a percentage of that.

In terms of how long a person can receive workers’ compensation benefits, again, this depends on the injury. If you lose the ability to use a certain body part, the amount of time that you are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits will vary from part to part.

For more minor injuries that do not result in temporary or permanent disabilities, workers’ compensation benefits will typically involve a worker being paid for wages lost and being reimbursed for medical costs.

2 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
