A serious personal injury, whether it arises from a road accident, medical malpractice, a dog bite or some other cause, creates at least three different classes of problems in your life – physical, emotional and financial. Here at Malman Law, we see it as our job to provide attention, guidance and experienced legal representation, so that you can concentrate on regaining your health.
The number 95 means two things to us: 95 is the percentage of our clients who walk away with compensation in their bank account, and 95 is also the percentage of our winning clients whose cases were settled out of court. Although you will probably never have to walk into a courtroom, we are ready to win if it comes to that – which is probably why most defendants choose to settle with us.
We are so confident of our ability to secure compensation for you, that we will waive all our legal fees if you don’t end up receiving compensation. This is not a “money back guarantee” – since we charge no upfront fees, it means that you will never pay us a dime, EVER, unless we win compensation for you. Our bill won’t come due until your money arrives.
The Malman Law team is exceptional. Knows personal injury law, very responsive to my personal workers’ comp case, recovered money I thought I would never see. And it happened twice as fast as I thought it would. Thank you, Malman Law. — Malman Law Client
Following are a few of the kinds of cases that we handle. Keep in mind that this is only a partial list.
We have been in business for over 25 years, and in that time we have represented 20,000 clients, enough people to fill a small football stadium. At Malman Law, 20,000 clients ago means $200 million dollars ago, because that is how much money we have recovered for our clients over the years. Some of our clients have walked away with multimillion dollar recoveries.
A personal injury claim is subject to the statute of limitations, which sets a deadline for resolving your claim. Even before the deadline, however, it is best to begin preparing your claim while the evidence is still fresh. Call Chatham’s personal injury attorneys any time 24/7 at 1-888-836-5975 or contact us online for a free initial consultation. If you cannot come to us, we can come to meet you wherever you are.
The insurance company will calculate your settlement value with an eye towards asserting any deductions that they can justify. They may claim that your injury merely represents the mere worsening of a pre-existing injury, or they may attempt to assert that the accident was partly your fault. They will reach for anything that will help them to minimize your claim, or deny it altogether.
No. You must be at least 18 to file a lawsuit. It is the complainant’s age at the time the lawsuit is filed that matters, not his age at the time of the injury. A court can appoint a guardian to file the lawsuit on behalf of the minor (usually a parent).
The Illinois dog bite statute carves out two exceptions to liability – provocation and trespassing. In other words, you cannot win damages if you provoked the dog into biting you, or if you were trespassing on the owner’s property. If neither of these two exceptions apply, you might win without even having to prove negligence.
You should prepare at least the following information:
2 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
