Although train accidents are statistically rarer than car, bike and truck accidents; when they do occur, the results can be nightmarish. For instance, in 2007, many died and dozens were injured when the operator of a Southern California train got distracted while text messaging and careered off the tracks. Your train accident need not have made the news in order for you to bring suit, however. A sudden unexplained stop that sends you lurching backwards into a pole or another passenger can lead to whiplash, torn ligaments, severe bruising, or soft tissue injuries. The resulting chronic pain can require many thousands of dollars in medical costs to fix.
What makes our Chicago train accident lawyers different from the rest? First of all, we’ve been around since 1994. In the past decade and a half, over 6,000 clients have trusted us for help with cases including: medical malpractice, product liability, slip and falls, police brutality, Civil Rights violations, nursing home neglect, birth injuries, and motor vehicle accidents of every stripe. We have an on-staff physician who also holds a law degree. He can assess your injuries and help us build a compelling and thorough case on your behalf. We emphasize good preparation, client communication, and a methodical approach to getting you the best possible recovery in the shortest amount of time.
Our compassionate IL train accidents attorneys are on call for you 24/7 at 1-888-625-6265 (alternatively, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org), and we build our relationships around what’s known as a no-fee guarantee. You pay us nothing until we collect money for you. If we can’t get a settlement or can’t win a verdict at trial, you pay nothing out of pocket. We minimize your risk to maximize your comfort and also to motivate our Chicago train accident lawyers to work as hard as possible on your behalf. We can do this because we get results, time and again. We invite you to check out some of our settlements and verdicts at www.malmanlaw.com, where you can also explore a little bit about our philosophy and passions and read up on our credentials. Make the critical call now, and set us to work battling for your rights.
What Do We Mean 24/7?
We at the Law Offices of Steven J. Malman & Associates understand that injuries don’t occur according to a schedule. That’s why we offer maximum flexibility. Our Chicago injury lawyers are on call now – whether it’s the middle of the business day or Christmas Eve – for immediate help. Simply dial 1-888-MALMAN LAW, and one of our seasoned, client-focused attorneys will call you back to discuss your matter, for free and at no obligation.
Often, Illinois workers’ compensation and personal injury clients wait too long to secure legal representation. This can be a mistake. The hours immediately after an injury can be critical. Chances are, the liable insurance company won’t wait around to investigate the matter. Claims adjusters may even be at the scene right now, taking pictures, collecting witness testimonies, and extract statements and signatures -- all in a proactive attempt to limit your options.
Mistakes in the early hours can your case needlessly complicated and difficult to win. In addition, the longer you go without retaining a qualified Illinois personal injury attorney, the greater the chances are that you’ll make a misstep. Simplify the process and reduce your uncertainty now by phoning us or emailing us at email@example.com.

Slip and Fall
When you retain our services, our team of attorneys will immediately go to work. We’ll investigate precisely how the dog attack occurred and leverage our formidable resources and deep knowledge of Illinois state law (we’ve served over 6,000 clients over the course of more than 15 years of operation) to see that justice is served and that you're fairly compensated for your medical bills, pain and suffering, additional costs.
Illinois law is very clear about how dog bite matters should be handled. If a dog (that you did not provoke) bites you, you're entitled to damages. Similarly, if you sustained injury while fleeing from an aggressive dog – for instance, if you broke your ankle or got hit by a car while running away from the vicious animal – you're similarly protected, and you can seek damages. (Often, the dog owner's homeowners insurance will pay for medical bills, surgery to repair scar damage, and wages lost.) Illinois is also what’s known as a "first bite" state. That means that the first time a dog bites someone – even if it’s never bitten any one before – you're entitled to damages.
All that said, while Illinois law is favorably predisposed to dog bite claimants, making an effective personal injury claim requires the hands-on assistance of proven, aggressive, and thorough Chicago personal injury lawyers. We've tackled cases of all sizes and levels of complexity, including spinal cord injuries, nursing home abuse, Civil Rights violations, slip and falls, medical malpractice, and, of course, premises liability matters. We have an on-staff physician who holds a law degree, so we can thoroughly assess your injuries and figure out the most strategic way to move your claim forward.
Phone us ASAP at 1-888-625-6265 (1-888-MALMAN LAW), or email us through www.malmanlaw.com to discuss your dog bite case with us. We make the process as risk free and stress free as possible. Your initial consultation is free. And if you choose to retain us, you will only pay if and when we collect for you. Find out more about our no-fee guarantee and about our services, philosophy, and litany of successful cases at www.malmanlaw.com.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Railroad Worker Accident
When most of people think of railroad injuries, they conjure up images of people like Phineas Gage. Mr. Gage was a 19th century railroad worker who took a tamping iron through his skill after an ill-timed explosion went off. The spike completely pierced his brain, but amazingly it didn’t kill him. It did, however, alter his personality, changing him from an affable gentleman into a despondent aggressor.
But while some Chicago railroad injuries occur in a flash and result in acute devastation, not all do. Many rail workers get injured slowly, over the course of years of service. Strained backs, ligament and soft tissue damage, and exposure to industrial toxins, solvents, and particulate matter can all result in debilitating injuries that can knock even the stoutest men off the tracks and lead to the accumulation of massive medical bills, suffering and ultimately even death.
Fortunately, if you or a loved one is in need of a railroad accident attorney in Illinois, you can trust the dynamic team here at the Law Offices of Steven J. Malman & Associates. We have tackled over 6,000 cases of Illinois personal injury and worker’s compensation since we opened our doors in 1994. In addition to railroad accident cases, we have litigated and settled matters involving slip and falls, dog bites, police brutality, wrongful death, nursing home abuse and neglect, cerebral palsy, construction accidents, medical malpractice, and traumatic brain injuries. We provide a no-fee guarantee for our services. Thus, if we fail to collect a settlement or win a verdict for you in court, you pay nothing. We offer this guarantee to give you peace of mind and to motivate our attorneys to fight as hard as possible on your behalf. (If we don’t win, we don’t get paid.)
Phone our compassionate, aggressive IL personal injury lawyers now at 1-888-625-6265, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Whether you want to launch a class action against your railroad employer or wrangle an insurer who has a history of acting in bad faith, count on us to battle for your rights. We have the resources, and we do whatever it takes.
Workers' Compensation - Injured on the Job
You need someone who’s purely on your side. Our Chicago workers’ compensation lawyers boast more than 15 years of experience wrangling bad faith insurance companies, uncooperative employers, and other parties. We passionately believe that injured workers deserve good compensation, and we know the law inside and out. We’ve served over 6,000 clients since 1994, and we're happy to provide testimonials upon request.
Many insurance companies will pay for your medical bills, and they even may pay you while you're off of work. However, what they likely won’t tell you is that you're also entitled to a lump sum settlement. This lump sum can be worth thousands of dollars – or much more.
Studies show that claimants who “go it alone” (file without the help of an attorney) get two to three times less than what they get with good legal counsel on their side. When you call 1-888-625-6265 or email email@example.com, you’ll immediately be connected with an experienced Il workers’ comp attorney, who will go to work filing your claim. We’ll present your case to an arbitrator and set the process of getting you your benefits in motion. We know the typical tricks and tactics insurance companies use to deny claims or to withhold benefit checks. We can counter those if they're deployed, and we are not afraid to take insurance companies to court on your behalf, if need be.
You work hard to deliver for your family, and you do your job well. You deserve the most effective legal representation possible for your workers’ comp case. Our lawyers are on call 24/7, and you pay no upfront fees. Indeed, if we can’t collect money for you, our services are free.
But what happens when the person who hit you doesn’t have insurance or doesn’t have enough insurance? Can you hope to obtain any compensation at all? Or must you be saddled with the additional indignity of paying out of pocket for your own care and time off work?
The seasoned Chicago personal injury lawyers of Steven J. Malman & Associates, can advise you for free and at no obligation. Simply call us at 1-888-625-6265 (1-888 MALMAN LAW) or e-mail our staff at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will immediately get back to you. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a weekend, a holiday, or even in the middle of the night – accidents don’t happen on a schedule, and we understand that.
If you’ve been hurt recently or even several weeks or months ago by an uninsured driver, chances are, you still have good legal options. According to Illinois Law, every insurance policy sold must come with Uninsured Motorist Coverage. That means that your insurance company is obligated to pay some or all of the costs for damages and injuries sustained. It may also be possible to locate other liable parties to pay for your care and treatment. For instance, if a delivery service driver hit you while on the way to drop off a pizza, you can theoretically sue the restaurant or even the restaurant’s insurance company to collect. Similarly, if an uninsured truck driver hit you, you can potentially sue the trucking company he was working for.
To explore your options in detail, get in touch with our Chicago personal injury attorneys ASAP. We will battle for your rights. And we never back down from a fight – even if that means taking your action all the way to trial.
Due to simple physics, motorcyclists are at more risk of catastrophic injuries such as broken bones, spinal cord damage, fractured wrists, and even death. If you’ve been hurt, call the Law Offices of Steven J. Malman & Associates right now at 1-888 MALMAN LAW (1-888-625-6265). Our Chicago personal injury attorneys are on call 24/7/365. We respect motorcyclists, and we deeply appreciate the unique safety concerns that you face.
We’ve amassed a vast amount of experience litigating and settling Chicago motorcycle accident cases. Indeed, since 1994, our Illinois personal injury attorneys have worked with over 6,000 clients, and we’ve won many six, seven, and even eight figure results.
Often, the key to winning a complex motorcycle crash case is keen investigative work. By reconstructing the accident scene, we can precisely assign liability and compel the negligent or careless driver who hit you (or that driver’s insurance company) to pay damages, such as medical bills and wages lost. Don’t delay getting the help you need. Our Illinois motorcycle accident attorneys are on call to answer your questions – for free and at no obligation. And if you do retain our services, we provide a no-fee guarantee. Unless we win money for you, you owe us nothing for our services.
Cell Phone Accidents
Driving while talking on the cell phone may be less taboo than driving while drunk. But statistics affirm that there's little difference between driving while chatting on the cell phone and driving drunk. If you've been hurt in a car, truck, bike, or pedestrian accident, and the driver who hit you had been chatting on a cell phone or texting at the time, you may need the counsel of a veteran Chicago personal injury attorney to advise you about your rights and help you file a claim.
The resource rich IL personal injury lawyers of Steven J. Malman & Associates strive to deliver compassionate and attentive service for clients. Choose to retain us, and you will pay no fee unless we can collect for you via either a settlement out of court or via a verdict at trial. We will fight for your rights – against bad faith insurers, deep pocketed trucking companies, and other uncooperative or callous defendants. For a partial list of our settlements and verdicts, see www.malmanlaw.com.
E-mail email@example.com or call us at 1-888-MALMAN LAW to discuss your next steps. Time may be of the essence. The longer you wait to file a claim, the greater the chance that you may give poorly advised statements to insurance company adjusters, for instance.
Car and Truck Accidents
On top of the immediate panic and pain, you must obtain emergency medical care, recover from injuries, deal with medical bills, insurance companies and employers, and process the stress and trauma. The good news is that you don’t have to do this all alone. The Law Offices of Steven J. Malman & Associates can leverage the skills of our battle proven Chicago personal injury lawyers to fight for your rights. You may be able to obtain compensation for your injuries, wages lost (both current and future), and pain and suffering.
If you’ve been hurt in a Chicago car accident, first and foremost, obtain emergency medical care. Take photos of the accident scene and of your injuries. Collect the names, numbers, and addresses of anyone involved in or who witnessed the accident. Good information gives you power to negotiate effectively. For instance, did you know that federal law requires semi truck drivers to maintain a daily logbook of their activities? If a semi truck hit you, and you can prove the driver had logged more hours than he was legally allowed, you can win a liability claim and collect compensation.
Our personal injury lawyers in Chicago have dealt with literally thousands of car and truck accident cases. We have the wherewithal, fortitude, and passion to deliver results for you. Our goal is to get you the most compensation in least amount of time, so that you can take back control of your life.
Call 1-888-MALMAN LAW or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for a zero obligation consultation. Contact us any time. After all, car accidents can (and often do) occur “after hours.” What you do immediately following a crash can crucially impact your future legal options. So get in touch with us ASAP.
Why Should You Hire an Attorney?
Insurance companies are businesses. They're driven by the bottom line. They want and need to make profits. This isn’t to say that insurance companies are evil, per say. But it's crucial to realize that they're not exactly on your side, either. They have no motivation - ZERO - to pay out full settlement amounts. To the contrary, insurers often hire consultants to help figure out ways to get out of paying policyholders, methods that can even violate the law.
To battle back, it makes sense for Illinois personal injury and workers’ compensation claimants to retain attorneys. A recent study found that claimants represented by lawyers received on average two to three times more than unrepresented claimants did. Think about that. We can get you more money – even after you’ve paid our fees – than you can get by dealing with your insurance company yourself. Statistically speaking, it just makes sense to get an attorney. Furthermore, on top of that extra money, you'll also save time (no haggling directly with the insurance company) and likely also reduce your anxiety about your case.
When you choose the Illinois personal injury attorneys of Steven J. Malman & Associates, PC, you can leave the nuts and bolts to us. Instead of fruitlessly dwelling on the case, you can instead spend this time healing and taking care of your needs and your family's.
Take advantage of our no-fee guarantee and call us immediately to get seasoned advice about your next steps. Our lawyers are always on call, 24/7, at 1-888-625-6265. You can alternatively send us an email at any time at email@example.com.

Construction Accident and Work Injury
If you, a co-worker, or a loved one has been injured at a construction site in and around the Chicago area, connect with the personal injury attorneys of Steven J. Malman & Associates today. Our veteran litigators can help you explore protections and benefits that you may not know even exist. In over 15 years of battling for the rights of injured construction workers (and others), we've dealt with practically every kind of case imaginable, from matters involving traumatic brain injuries and death to cases involving police brutality, dog bites, slip and falls, and medical malpractice.
Our Chicago construction accident attorneys can investigate your claim and draw up a systematic approach to get you the compensation you deserve. More than one party may be responsible, since a variety of factors often play into these types of accidents.
Parties who may be legally liable for your injuries (and the resulting medical bills and other costs) can include but are not limited to:
• Manufacturers of equipment that you or your co-workers used
• Construction companies
• Other workers or supervisors
• Insurance companies
• Anyone else who has a legal obligation to ensure a safe work environment
Given the number of potentially liable parties and the complexity of these accidents, it behooves you to contact us immediately. Gathering information about what happened is critical. The longer you wait to get in touch with an Illinois construction accident attorney, the more difficult it can be to determine what exactly took place and figure out whose negligence caused or contributed to the accident.
Injured workers may be tempted to give statements to insurance companies or other investigators. Resist that temptation. You may accidentally compromise your case and imperil your ability to collect for missed wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
For a no obligation, no pressure consultation with one of our expert Chicago accident lawyers, dial 1-888-625-6265 or send an e-mail to email@example.com. Thanks to our no-fee guarantee, you pay nothing unless and until we win money for you.
