Malman Law. Premier Personal Injury Attorneys

Injury Attorney Steven J. Malman

Accident Attorneys Serving Injury Victims in the Auburn Gresham Area

Chicago wouldn’t be complete without Auburn Gresham.  The stunning architecture of the St. Sabina Church towers over brick two-flats and bungalow-style housing as a reminder of the tremendous changes the area has seen over the last few decades. We salute organizations, such as the Perspectives Leadership Academy, for educating Auburn Gresham’s youth and keeping the flame burning.

Unfortunately, life has a way of tapping us all on the shoulder sometimes. For some of us, that “tap” feels more like a sledgehammer when we face a serious personal injury caused by a drunken driver, a careless doctor, or even a defective prescription medication. When that happens, pain and suffering will compete with financial distress for your attention, all because someone else did something wrong.

Protecting the Rights of the Injured is Our Mission

When someone else’s misconduct causes you injury – anything from traumatic brain injury to a broken hip – you are entitled to compensation from the responsible party or their insurance company. In other words, you have a personal injury claim. Helping injured victims recover the money they are owed in compensation for their injury is not only our job – it is our mission, and it is all we do, every day.

Think You Can’t Afford a Lawyer? Think Again – Our Zero Fee Guarantee

Have you been told that only rich people can afford to hire a lawyer? It’s not so at our office. At Malman Law, it is the quality of your claim that matters, not the size of your bank account. You won’t owe us a dime upfront, and you will never owe us a dime unless we win. Even then, our legal fees will be taken out as a percentage of your compensation, so you will be guaranteed to come out ahead.

One of Our Clients Speaks

“If anyone has a problem and is in need of help call Malman Law. At Malman Law you are not just a client, you are part of the family.” – Donyell G.

Types of Claims We Handle

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1) Am I eligible for punitive damages?

Probably not, but you might be. Illinois courts will not award punitive damages unless the defendant’s conduct was shocking or outrageous. You might win punitive damages for a DUI accident or a “road rage” accident; however, there are no guarantees. Normal compensatory damages are much easier to win.

2) How likely is it that my claim will go to trial?

Not very likely. Fewer than 10 percent of all personal injury claims are resolved in court. The remainder are resolved by out-of-court settlement. Filing a lawsuit, however, is a good way of pressuring a defendant to raise the settlement offer.

3) Can you accept a settlement offer without my permission?

No, and we would be guilty of legal malpractice if we did. To accept a settlement offer on your behalf, we would need your written consent. Even if it weren’t a violation of our professional ethics, we would never do this, because it is simply not fair to you.

4) What should I do in the aftermath of an injury accident?

If you are not too seriously injured, you should:

  • Call the police.
  • Seek medical attention without delay.
  • Gather insurance information and contact details from potential defendants, and contact details for any witnesses.
  • Contact a personal injury lawyer.
  • Report the accident to your insurance company as directed by your lawyer.

5) How can I win a dog bite claim?

The Illinois dog bite statute requires you to prove:

  • the attack occurred;
  • the identity of the dog’s owner or keeper;
  • that you did not provoke the dog; and
  • you were not trespassing at the time of the attack.

You do not have to prove that the owner or keeper was negligent.

Our Track Record of Success

Our sympathies are with victims, not perpetrators. We have never represented defendants – only injured victims like you. In nearly a quarter century of practice, we have won nearly $200,000,000 for over 20,000 clients in the aggregate.  We win over 95 percent of our cases, and 95 percent of those are settled, meaning that you will probably never have to step into a courtroom.
