You could be compensated for your injury. We can help.

Vehicle accidents are an ongoing reality of life in an urban city. Every year people in Chicago, IL are involved in accidents involving an auto, motorcycle, truck, train, bicycle or as a pedestrian. These accidents can cause personal injury, severe injuries or death. If your injury was the result of another person or entity’s negligence or recklessness, you may be entitled to compensation to help you cover your expenses so you can focus on making a quick, smooth, and full recovery.

Highways and roads in Chicago, IL grow more and more crowded each year with commuters and travelers. With such congestion, auto accidents are an unavoidable reality and the frequency of such accidents increases annually. Even with better laws and insurance coverage, a car accident will sometimes cause injury as a result of someone else’s carelessness or impairment.

Some auto insurance carriers work under an assumption that unless an accident victim is killed or seriously maimed, a car accident injury case is not valid. A car injury lawyer at Malman Law understands these realities and is committed to getting you the compensation you’re entitled to as a result of an auto accident in Chicago, IL.

Since 1994, we have handled more than 1,000 car accident cases in Illinois and have experience with a range of car accident injuries, including broken bones, spinal cord injuries, internal injuries, burns, and bruises. We have also helped families that have lost a loved one as a result of the negligence or carelessness of a driver.

Most people have at some point driven while using a cell phone. However, data offered by the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society may make you rethink your actions.

According to a recent study, cell phones have caused more than 2,600 auto crash-related fatalities and over 330,000 auto crash-related injuries. Research indicates that the usage of cell phones dramatically slows down reaction time and reflexes.

Although talking on your cell phone is more socially permissible than drunk driving, the risk factors are similar if not higher. Research has repeatedly proven that there’s only a slight difference in terms of attentiveness.

Motorcycles make a visually imposing presence on today’s traffic scene and, throughout Chicago, IL you can observe everything from restored vintage cycles to modern, high-octane monster cycles. The city of Chicago, IL strictly enforces its policies regarding motorcycle driving and on-road safety. That said, motorcycle accidents can and do occur.

The freedom of motorcycling is exciting but, with minimal protection, even the most safety-conscious motorcycle drivers and passengers have a natural vulnerability to injury. Motorcyclists involved in an accident can sustain serious injuries including broken bones, brain and internal organ injury, spinal cord damage, and even death.

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. However, “el” trains, commuter railroads and buses can be hazardous places. Of course, the city and transportation companies make every effort to ensure the safety of all passengers, but high speeds, derailment accidents, and sudden stops can all result in serious injuries and even fatalities.

If you or a loved one has been injured on the CTA, Metra or any other Illinois transpiration system, speak today with the experienced Illinois train accident attorneys of Steven J. Malman & Associates.

Passengers on Illinois public transit systems are required by law to receive to utmost care. Still, train conductors who drive under the influence, inspectors who fail to notice critical malfunctions, maintenance crews who do sub-standard work, and companies that don’t make the right decisions can put literally hundreds of lives in jeopardy.

Truck accidents in Chicago, IL are always more complex than those accidents involving cars, motorcycles, pedestrians, or bicycles because of the massive equipment involved. And personal injury cases involving truck accidents are generally more serious, due to the force of impact from a collision involving an 18-wheeler truck, a semi-truck, tractor-trailer or another large truck.

At Malman Law we are very familiar with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and state commercial vehicle regulations that govern truck drivers and truck companies operating in Chicago, IL. When determining liability or negligence in a trucking accident, we know exactly what to look for to protect your rights.

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?

At Steven J. Malman & Associates, our seasoned Chicago personal injury lawyers can help you for free and with no obligation. Give us a call, or request a free case evaluation—we’ll get back to you immediately. We know that accidents don’t happen on a schedule, so no matter if it’s the weekend, a holiday, or in the middle of the night, we’re there.

The Law Offices of Steven J. Malman and Associates, P.C. secured a large settlement in this case, in which a father of five tragically died when his tire treads failed, causing his vehicle to roll over. Our team investigated the crash carefully and pieced together a convincing argument that the manufacturer of the tire should be held liable for the damages sustained. In addition to the driver, two other passengers died in the accident. A fourth passenger was rendered quadriplegic by the crash. $11,800,000.00 was the total settlement.


Steven J. Malman obtained a large settlement of behalf of a pedestrian who was struck standing on the side of the road while his semi-tractor trailer was being repaired. Our client suffered multiple broken bones which required surgery and a lengthy recovery including extensive physical therapy. While our client was released back to work, we were able to establish that his pain and suffering warranted such a recovery.


In this case, we were able to prove that the driver of a van was responsible for the death of a bicyclist even though our client and the driver of the van were deceased. Through careful investigation and examination, the insurance company agreed that our client had the right of way at the intersection and the deceased van driver was at fault. Our client left a husband and two adult children.


In this matter, Steven J. Malman represented a hemophiliac who had suffered soft tissue injury to his finger as a result of an auto accident.
