Trusted and Proven Calumet City Accident Lawyer

As delightful as Calumet City can be, living in a rural region of Illinois comes with its challenges. An individual injured in a truck accident on Dolton Avenue, for instance, might have trouble getting immediate, exhaustive medical care. During the icy Midwestern winters, the roads in Calumet City can get sleety and slick; car crashesslip and fallsspinal injuries, and other unfortunate accidents can and do result. Oftentimes, victims of these local catastrophes wind up burdened for life with extra medical costs, decreased ability to bring in income, and emotional and psychological trauma. Contacting an experienced Calumet City Accident Lawyer is an important step on this difficult road.

Whether you’ve suffered a dog bite, spinal cord injury, or motorcycle crash related damage, it may behoove you to seek the advice of legal counsel to determine potential options to recoup costs – not just from the individual(s) who caused the accident but also from other potentially liable entities, such as your insurance company or even the state government. Building a personal injury case for your Calumet City accident will likely require significant resources – even if the case appears at first blush to be pretty cut and dry. Fortunately, Calumet City injury victims can rely on the services of Malman Law. The dedicated lawyers at Malman Law have aggressively, actively, and creatively represented their clients and won myriad victories – both at settlement and at trial. Please contact Malman Law to find out more information about one of Chicago’s most well reputed injury attorneys, or dial 1-(888) 310-9252 or fill out our free online consultation.

Calumet City, IL

Calumet City won national fame in the early 1970’s when, at the behest of a local child, town engineers painted an enormous smiley face on the municipal water towers. These two towers (quickly redubbed the “smiley towers”) vaulted Cal City into the limelight for a few weeks in 1973 and spurred towns across the nation to decorate their water towers and municipal buildings. Today, Calumet City is home to around 40,000 people spread out across an area of about 7.5 square miles. Wild Cal borders the state of Indiana and supports an array of small businesses, farms, and service entities.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Proving negligence is not enough by itself to win a negligence-based personal injury claim. In addition to proving the existence of negligence, you must prove that the negligence was a substantial cause of the accident that injured you. There can be more than one “substantial cause” of an accident.

Yes, you can. Negligence is not the only basis for a personal injury claim – an intentional assault will also support liability. Since insurance generally does not cover intentional assaults, however, you may have difficulty collecting damages if the defendant cannot afford to pay them.

Depending on the circumstances of your case, you might try:

  • Filing a claim against your own uninsured motorist insurance, if you have any;
  • Claiming against the at-fault driver’s personal assets; or
  • Looking for a second defendant (the driver’s employer, for example, if he was on-duty at the time of the accident).

Illinois dog bite law requires you to prove that:

  • the defendant owned the dog;
  • the defendant’s dog attacked you;
  • you did not provoke the dog; and
  • you were not trespassing on the owner’s property.

Illinois contributory fault law does not absolutely bar you from damages in this situation, as long as your fault was less than the defendant’s fault (as determined by the court). Nevertheless, since your damages will be reduced in proportion to your degree of fault, you could lose up to 49 percent of your damages.

You may have other questions about your case. Please contact one of our skilled and proven Calumet City Accident Attorney to discuss your concerns.

2 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 most 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
