Experienced Legal Representation for Auto Accident Victims in Rockford

Malman Law is a team of experienced personal injury lawyers who have represented thousands of accident victims in Rockford and throughout the Chicago area. We have won millions of dollars for our clients, including numerous million-dollar and multi-million-dollar settlements and verdicts in auto accident claims. When we take your case, our attorneys will work quickly to secure maximum compensation through an out-of-court settlement, and if necessary we will aggressively pursue justice in court.

While some vehicle collisions can be classified as “freak accidents,” most crashes are a result of driver negligence. If someone else was at fault in your accident, our attorneys can help you seek full compensation for all of your accident-related losses. Examples of driver negligence that may entitle you to a financial recovery include:

  • Distracted driving (including talking on the phone, texting, or using social media)
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol, marijuana, or other drugs
  • Fatigued driving
  • Failing to yield
  • Merging or changing lanes without looking
  • Reckless driving
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Speeding (including driving too fast for traffic or weather conditions)

We handle all types of auto accident claims in Rockford, including those involving passenger vehicles, Uber and Lyft drivers, buses, trucks, and other commercial vehicles. As your personal injury lawyers, our mission is simple: We want to help you secure maximum compensation as quickly as possible.

FAQs: Seeking Financial Compensation After an Auto Accident in Rockford

Q: How long do I have to seek financial compensation after an auto accident in Rockford?

Illinois has a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury claims. However, to protect your legal rights, it is important that you start your claim as soon as possible.

Q: Is it okay to talk to my insurance adjuster about the accident?

While it is okay to report the accident to your insurance company, you should not provide your insurance adjuster with any more information than what is necessary to meet your obligations under your policy. For the most part, dealing with the insurance companies is something you should let your attorney handle on your behalf.

Q: How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer in Rockford?

Our firm handles all personal injury cases (including auto accident insurance claims) on a contingency-fee basis. As a result, it costs you nothing out of pocket to hire our lawyers, and you do not pay anything unless we help you win just compensation.

Do You Need a Rockford Auto Accident Attorney?

When you get into a vehicle accident, you’ll need to exchange information with the other involved parties.
