Beverly Personal Injury Lawyers

Malman Law. Premier Personal Injury Attorneys

Injury Attorney Steven J. Malman

A Personal Injury Law Firm for the People of Greater Chicago

Beverly could be called the “roof of Chicago” because it is located right in the middle of the Blue Island Ridge. Many of us are frequent visitors. You might run into one of us shopping along 103rd Street, for example, or attending the South Side Irish Parade. When we get back to work, however, more serious issues await.

Quite a number of our clients over the years have called Beverly home. All of them contacted us for the same reason – they suffered injury through the misconduct of someone else. Of course, that kind of injury gives you a legal claim for damages under Illinois personal injury law. Having a claim, however, is useless if you don’t know how much it’s worth or how to enforce it.

How Much Is Your Claim Worth?

It’s difficult to say without knowing the details of your case. It is likely, however, that your claim is worth more than you realize. You are entitled to compensation for all of your losses – both economic and non-economic. Most people do not realize, for example, that damages for pain and suffering might amount to several times the amount of reimbursement for medical expenses

If you don’t understand the value of your claim, you can be certain that the opposing party (typically an insurance company) will take advantage of your lack of knowledge. You might be offered a lowball settlement before you even get out of the hospital, or they may try to unfairly blame the accident on you. We won’t let them get away with it.

A Word from a Former Client of Ours

“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.”

Types of Cases We Handle

Following are only a few examples of the types of cases we handle:

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1) Can I recover for a truck accident even if my seatbelt was unbuckled at the time of the accident?

Yes. In Illinois, a defendant is not allowed to argue that you wouldn’t have been injured if you had been wearing a seatbelt. This is true even though Illinois law requires everyone to wear a seatbelt on public roads.

2) What is a family exclusion?

A family exclusion is a paragraph that is included in many auto insurance policies. If you suffer an auto accident injury that was caused by a family member, and your family member’s auto liability insurance contains a family exclusion clause, you cannot file a claim against your family member’s auto liability insurance for the injury.

3) What kind of damages can I claim?

Depending on the nature and extent of your injuries, you might be eligible for:

  • Hospital bills
  • Physical therapy expenses
  • In-home care
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Loss of income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Other intangible losses
  • Estimated future medical expenses
  • Punitive damages (occasionally awarded)

4) Does my claim qualify for punitive damages?

Perhaps, although most plaintiffs do not qualify. To qualify:

  • You must also qualify for ordinary compensatory damages;
  • The defendant must have caused the accident through particularly inappropriate behavior (e.g., an intentional assault); and
  • You must prove the defendant’s behavior by an elevated standard of proof;

How Malman Law Can Help

At Malman Law, we can negotiate with the other side on your behalf (although we will never finalize a settlement without your consent). We may need to file a lawsuit to pressure the other side into issuing a decent settlement offer, and in about five percent of cases we may need to go all the way to trial. Either way, we’ve got your back and we will guide you through the process.

Malman Law has been fighting for injured victims since 1994. In that time we have served over 20,000 clients and collected over $200,000,000 in compensation. We settle 95% of our cases, usually at the settlement table, but sometimes in court. We are so sure of our ability to win that we offer our Zero Fee Guarantee – if you don’t win, you pay us nothing.
