Statistically, deaths and serious injuries are about 15 times as high for motorcyclists as they are for motorists. The frightening aspect of this statistic is that most motorcycle accidents are the fault of a motorist who simply didn’t see the motorcyclist because he wasn’t watching out for one. In addition to this inherent danger, Chicago motorists are notorious for making sudden and unsafe lane changes. Normally this results in a honked horn; sometimes it results in an accident. When a motorcycle is involved, however, the seriousness of an accident is greatly multiplied. Catastrophic injuries and death are not uncommon.
Even though just about everyone knows that an injury victim is entitled to compensation for an accident caused by someone else, insurance companies love to take advantage of victims who don’t know the true value of their claim. Fortunately, most of them know better than to try to pull a fast one on a Malman Law client. If they don’t, they’ll have to learn the hard way.
The woods are thick, so to speak, with personal injury lawyers. In fact, any lawyer fresh from passing the bar exam can hang out a shingle and call himself a personal injury lawyer. At Malman Law, by contrast, we’ve got a stellar track record to back us up:
“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
Malman Law handles all different types of motorcycle accident claims, including:
Victory is not automatic, but proving that the defendant broke the law definitely helps your case. Nevertheless, the driver might argue that:
Perhaps. Although Illinois has no law requiring motorcyclists to wear helmets, it is still possible for you to be found at least partially responsible for your own injuries if you fail to wear one. Even if you are found negligent, you can still recover partial damages if the defendant’s fault was greater than yours.
Yes. Technically, the Illinois wrongful death act only permits the victim’s estate representative to file the claim. As the victim’s spouse, however, you are eligible for damages even if you’re not the one who files the claim. Damages might include:
If the truck’s gross weight is at least 10,000 pounds, the minimum insurance coverage is:
You have no doubt heard the “billable hours” horror stories. However, None of those stories originated from our office, because we don’t fool with billable hours – we only get paid if you do. That means if we don’t win your case, you will owe us nothing. And if we do win (as we almost always do), your bill won’t come due until your money is in the bank.
They area very helpful and when it come to getting things done with your case I had the pleasureof working with Jason Kellerman he was awesome I highly recommend them.

I was rear-ended by a semi-truck on my way to work. I was transported to the hospital and my car was totaled. In the aftermath, Dan Petrich and Anna Schmidt from Malman Law helped me get set up with physical therapy and negotiated with the insurance companies to make sure the resulting settlement would cover my medical bills and a rental car until I could get a new car. I would highly recommend their services.
would do everything they could for me.
