Malman Law. Premier Personal Injury Attorneys

Injury Attorney Steven J. Malman

Ashburn Personal Injury Lawyers Serving the Injured in Chicago

After representing over 20,000 personal injury victims, we like to think that we have gained almost as much familiarity with Chicago neighborhoods as a taxi driver. Ashburn is no exception — from Cicero Avenue to Western Avenue and from Wrightwood to Scottsdale, Chicago’s Ashburn district is home to many of our current and former clients. You could even say that “we’re sold on Ashburn.”

It’s nice to retain a lawyer to sort out the details of an inheritance that you received. It’s not so nice to need a lawyer due to an injury that was caused by someone else’s misconduct. When something like this happens, you have a right to full compensation from the responsible party. You also have a right to be angry about what happened. Anger won’t put money in your pocket, however – that’s our job.

“But I Can’t Afford to Hire a Lawyer”

You won’t need a penny to hire us. At Malman Law, it is the strength of your claim that matters, not the thickness of your wallet. If we take your case and you end up winning compensation, your legal fees will be deducted from your compensation, and the rest will be yours to keep. If we don’t win compensation for you (which happens only about five percent of the time), you will owe us nothing for our services.

Don’t Settle for an Amateur

We have represented over 20,000 clients over the years – more than enough to populate a small town. 95 percent of these clients ended up receiving compensation, including some who won millions of dollars. All told, we have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation for our clients. Don’t settle for less than the best representation — your claim might be worth more than you think.

What Our Clients Say

“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 [greatest] 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

Types of Cases We Handle

We handle the following types of cases, among others:

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1)  Can I win punitive damages?

Possibly. Illinois courts will award punitive damages if the defendant’s conduct was particularly outrageous – a “road rage” incident in which the defendant intentionally caused the accident, for example, or a surgeon operating on you while intoxicated. Punitive damages are awarded, if at all, in addition to ordinary compensatory damages.

2) How do I win a dog bite claim?

Illinois dog bite law holds a dog owner strictly liable for dog bites. That means you don’t even have to prove that the owner was negligent. Common defenses include trespassing and provocation. Fortunately, homeowner’s insurance usually (but not always) cover dog bite claims.

3) What common mistakes should I avoid?

The following advice is standard:

  • Don’t give out unnecessary information to the insurance company you are claiming against – they will use it against you if they can.
  • Seek medical treatment immediately, even if your injuries appear to be minor.
  • Make sure to obtain contact details for all eyewitnesses.
  • Do not sign a settlement agreement without having your lawyer look it over first.

4) How will I pay my bills while I am waiting for my claim to be paid?

Depending on the circumstances, you might be able to rely on:

  • your auto insurance policy (even if you are claiming against the defendant’s auto insurance policy); or
  • your health insurance policy.
  • a lien against your future compensation in favor of your health care provider

Your Claim Will Probably be Settled Out of Court

Over 90 percent of our clients end up with out-of-court settlement agreements rather than jury verdicts because defendants (especially insurance companies) don’t want to take the risk of litigating against our top-tier trial lawyers. Although it may be necessary to file a lawsuit to motivate the defendant to settle, it is relatively unlikely (although not impossible) that you will ever have to testify in court.
