Albany Park

Malman Law. Premier Personal Injury Attorneys

Injury Attorney Steven J. Malman

Chicago Injury Attorney serving Accident and Injury Victims in Albany Park

Albany Park is a delightful kaleidoscope of ethnic diversity.  Among its amazing variety of culinary delights, Noon-O-Kabab competes with the Lawrence Avenue Mexican and Korean restaurants for our affections. The North Mayfair Historic District completes a delightful afternoon itinerary for the intrepid Chicago explorer, and every August you’re likely to find a few of us enjoying the annual Ecuador Parade.

All of life doesn’t go as smoothly as a sunny Sunday afternoon, however. Sometimes it seems like life is booby-trapped – traffic accidents, medical malpractice, and even vicious dogs present hidden dangers that can turn life upside down in a moment. The infuriating part of all it is that you can be seriously injured in an accident that resulted from someone else’s misconduct.

We Can Help You Enforce Your Claim

A personal injury claim is a legal entitlement to damages from someone else, whether that someone is an individual or a company. If you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s misconduct, you have a claim. Claims don’t enforce themselves, however – to turn it into cash, you’re going to have to negotiate a settlement or win a lawsuit. That is where Malman Law can help.

Experience is Wins Cases, Not Bluster

Just about anybody who passes the bar exam can rent an office and call himself a lawyer. Insurance companies, however, laugh at lawyers who think they can bluff their way through negotiations but haven’t demonstrated an ability to win in court. Our courtroom track record is well-known to all – which is why they almost always settle rather than meet us to court.

Our Main Practice Areas

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1) How do I win a dog bite claim?

Illinois dog bite law allows injured victims to win a dog bite claim against the owner or keeper of a dog without even having to prove that the defendant was negligent. The defendant can successfully defend against your claim, however, if you provoked the dog or were trespassing at the time of the attack.

2) How does “causation” affect a personal injury claim?

Proving that the defendant was negligent is not enough to win a personal injury claim. You must also prove that the negligence caused the accident. Even an intoxicated driver can win if he or she can prove that the accident would have happened even if he or she had not been intoxicated.

3) Can a truck’s “black box” help me win a traffic accident case?

Yes. A truck’s “black box,” or Electronic Control Module, works something like a black box on a commercial airliner. It records various data including speed, braking times, and other information that can be used as evidence to establish whose fault the accident was.

4) Can I sue Uber over an accident involving one of its drivers?

It is possible, but difficult. Since Uber drivers are independent contractors, not employees, Uber is not automatically responsible for the negligence of its drivers. Nevertheless, Uber offers liability insurance coverage to its drivers, and this insurance applies even when drivers are merely on “available” status.

5) Can I file a claim over a “whiplash” injury?

Yes, although you may face certain challenges. “Whiplash” is not a formal medical term – in fact, it refers colloquially to a wide variety of soft tissue injuries. Unfortunately, some “whiplash” injuries can cause considerable pain, even when there is little medical evidence for their existence.

Our Zero Fee Guarantee

We don’t think our clients should pay for nothing. Consequently, we guarantee that your total legal bills from us will be based on a percentage of the amount you are awarded. Since any percentage of nothing is nothing, if we fail to win you compensation, your total legal bill will be precisely $0.00. This arrangement doesn’t concern us, because we win 95 percent of our cases.

The First Step to Victory is Yours to Take

Enforcing personal injury claims is what we do all day, every day, 365 days a year. We represent victims, never defendants. Over the years, our 20,000 clients have won over $200,000,000 in damages through us. The overwhelming majority of our clients win settlements – only five percent ever walk into a courtroom.
