Brighton Park

Malman Law. Premier Personal Injury Attorneys

Injury Attorney Steven J. Malman

Brighton Park Personal Injury Lawyers Serving Accident Victims of Chicago

Brighton Park‘s explosive growth in the 1990s has stabilized but the district’s dynamism remains, fueled largely by its ever-changing ethnic diversity. The Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture draws visitors from elsewhere in Chicago (including some of us from time to time) as well as from out of town.

Although Brighton Park is a relatively peaceful neighborhood, Stevenson Expressway and Interstate 55 can get quite congested, and traffic accidents are not uncommon. Traffic accidents are not the only way to get hurt, though –there are so many ways to get hurt that sometimes it seems like life is booby-trapped. When the accident that hurt you was someone else’s fault, however, it’s time to take action.

Let Us Handle It

A serious personal injury comes at you like a bolt from the blue – it is typically unexpected, and it can turn your life upside down. In addition to the shock and pain that unfortunately come with the territory of an injury accident, you may suddenly find yourself in financial distress due to sudden medical bills and lost work time. Life hits you with all of this just when you are in the worst position to deal with it all.

Let us handle it. At Malman Law, we have been in business since 1994. In that time, we have represented over 20,000 personal injury victims – enough to fill United Stadium to about 75 percent capacity. 95 percent of these clients have won compensation, including a number of multi-million dollar recoveries. Your job is to recover from your injuries — our job is to fight for your rights.

Our Zero Fee Guarantee

Because of our 95 percent success rate, we don’t worry about receiving legal fees for the few cases we don’t win. That means if we don’t win, you don’t pay. And if you do win, you won’t owe us anything until your recovery comes in.

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

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1) What are the primary causes of injury traffic accidents?

Most serious traffic accidents are caused by:

  • Not driving defensively, or driving too aggressively
  • Intoxication
  • Mechanical malfunctions such as brake failure
  • Distracted driving (texting while driving, for example).
  • Speeding, especially on wet or icy roads
  • “Road rage”

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

Ironically perhaps, proving negligence is not enough to win a negligence claim. You must also prove that the defendant’s negligence was a “substantial cause” of the accident. It need not be the only cause – for example, under certain circumstances, you can sue both a drunk driver and the nightclub that sold him alcohol.

3) How common is medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice is shockingly common. Even the American Medical Association admits that medical malpractice is one of the three leading causes of death in the U.S. Many victims of medical malpractice are not even sure that their injury or disease was caused by malpractice until after an investigation is conducted.

4) How can I successfully negotiate an out-of-court settlement?

Following are some general principles:

  • Know how much your claim is worth.
  • Know what your chances are at trial.
  • Pay attention to what the other side is saying and not saying.
  • Don’t allow yourself to become intimidated or discouraged.
  • Bring your lawyer with you! We can negotiate on your behalf if you wish.

Your Claim Will Probably Be Settled Out of Court

If you attempt to negotiate with a defendant without a lawyer, or with a lawyer who hasn’t demonstrated an ability t win at trial, you are likely to be laughed at, at least behind your back. Nobody is laughing at Malman Law, however, because our attorneys have proven time and time again that they can win in court. That must be why we settle over 90 percent of our clients’ claims out of court.

The Sooner You Act, the Better

The Illinois statute of limitations keeps the clock ticking on your claim. If time runs out, your claim will be worthless. Meanwhile, evidence grows more stale with every day that passes. Contact 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.
