Malman Law. Premier Personal Injury Attorneys

Injury Attorney Steven J. Malman

Avondale Personal Injury Lawyers Serving the Injured of Chicago

Avondale’s ethnic diversity intrigues the visitor, even those of us who live right here in Chicago. The district “where Eastern Europe meets Latin America” is home to a great number of our current and former clients who live in the Polish Village, Belmont Gardens and Kosciuszko Park (the so-called “Land of Koz”).

Kennedy Expressway will get you in and out of town, but only at the cost of risking your life, especially if you get distracted by the towering silhouette of the Basilica of St. Hyacinth visible from the highway. Car accidents are only one of many potential dangers that threaten us, however – slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice and even dog bites are a few examples of the Pandora’s box that we face daily.

When Someone Else’s Misconduct Injures You

It is difficult enough to face the consequences of an injury accident that “just happened” due to icy roads or other unavoidable causes. It is infuriating, however, to realize that all of the pain you are suffering occurred simply because someone else wasn’t watching what he was doing. When this happens, you have a legal right to full financial compensation.

Turning your claim into cash is exactly what we do at Malman Law. After 23 years, 20,000 clients and over $200 million recovered for our clients, we know how the Chicago personal injury system operates, and we know how to work it to your advantage. The aftermath of an injury is the worst possible time for you to be facing financial distress. Leave it to us, while you concentrate on regaining your health.

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

The following are just a few of the types of personal injury claims we handle:

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1) Can I sue a bar or nightclub for serving alcohol to a driver who later injured me?

Yes, under certain conditions. Under the Illinois Dram Shop Law, you can sue a bar or nightclub that sold or gave alcohol to the defendant, if their resulting intoxication was a substantial cause of your injuries. In this case, you can sue both the bar or nightclub and the intoxicated driver.

2) Can I be certain that you will keep our conversations confidential?

Yes, you can. We simply don’t reveal client confidences, and we wouldn’t be fit to practice law if we did. In addition to the ethical issue, we could be subject to serious penalties from the bar association, including loss of our license to practice law.

3) How can I win “pain and suffering” damages?

Pain and suffering damages compensate you for physical pain and suffering, not abstract emotional distress. The amount you receive will depend on:

  • The intensity of your pain.
  • The expected duration of your pain.
  • The type of injury that you suffered (since it is easier to prove severe pain for certain types of injuries).

4) Will I lose if I was partly at fault for the accident?

Not necessarily. Under Illinois comparative fault rules,

  • You can recover partial damages if your fault was less than the defendant’s fault, as determined by the court. Your damages will be reduced by your degree of fault (35 percent, for example).
  • If your fault was at least equal to the defendant’s fault, you will recover nothing.

If We Don’t Win, You Don’t Pay

We realize that you don’t pay for eloquent arguments or impressive-looking legal documents – you pay for victory, and that means money in your bank account when it’s all over. Since we come through for our clients 95 percent of the time, we are willing to guarantee that if we don’t win your case, our legal services will be free of charge. If we do win, you still won’t owe us anything until your money comes in.

Time is of the Essence

It takes time to prepare an effective claim, and it takes time to negotiate a private settlement (which is how most of our clients’ claims are resolved). Don’t delay — call us today at 1-888-836-5975 or contact us online for a free initial consultation. We are ready to take your call 24/7, and if you can’t come to us, we’ll come to you.
