Rear-End Accidents

Premier Personal Injury Attorneys
Skilled Personal Injury Lawyers Serving Rear-End Accident Victims in Greater Chicago

Rear-end accidents are the most common type of vehicle accident in Illinois,and they are almost always the fault of one of the drivers. Generally, a driver is expected to keep his car under control, and he will be found at least partially at fault if he rear-ends someone.A driver will not even be excused due to icy road conditions, according to the Illinois Department of Insurance. Nevertheless, if you were the one rear-ended you are not assured of victory – either in court or at the settlement table – because Illinois applies a comparative fault system to auto accidents. If a court rules that the car that struck you was 40 percent at fault while you were 60 percent at fault (for stopping suddenly, for example), you will receive no compensation.

Your Choice of Lawyer Makes a Difference

Any qualified lawyer fresh out of law school is legally entitled to handle just about any kind of case (patent law cases are a rare exception). Likewise, a contract lawyer with 25 years of experience is legally entitled to handle his very first personal injury case. If you settle for this kind of lawyer, however, you are unlikely to receive the best quality representation. It’s different here at Malman Law. We don’t run a buffet-style practice with lawyers who handle everything from writing wills to defending drug dealers. Personal injury law is all we do, and it’s all we’ve been doing for the last 25 years. Over that time we have represented over 20,000 injured victims, who have walked away with literally hundreds of millions in compensation.

Client Testimonial

“Two 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.” – Malman Law Client
