Not only are you entitled to past, present, and estimated future medical expenses, you are also entitled to everything you lost as a result of the accident. How long did you have to take off work to recover? You are entitled to full compensation for your lost earnings. Did you incur child care expenses while you were in the hospital? You are entitled to reimbursement for that as well.
That’s not all – not necessarily, anyway. You are also entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering. Although there is no easy way to put a dollar value on something as intangible as pain and suffering, in some cases pain and suffering compensation amounts to several times the amount awarded for medical expenses.
Insurance companies, in particular, absolutely love unrepresented claimants. These poor people almost always drastically underestimate the value of their personal injury claim. Our East Garfield Park personal injury lawyers won’t underestimate it, though.
Following are only a few examples of the types of claims that our Chicago personal injury attorneys frequently handle:
“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
East Garfield Park, home of the Garfield Park Conservatory, is also home to many of the personal injury victims we have served over the years. We have visited several clients at the nearby Sacred Heart Hospital on West Franklin Boulevard, and we have met with others at RML Specialty Hospital on West Van Buren Street.
Since the human body is such a fragile instrument, there are many different ways to get injured. The one aspect that all personal injuries share in common, however, is that one person was injured through the misconduct of another. That’s simply not right, and it is our job here at Malman Law to set it right by making sure you receive the full compensation to which you are entitled.
There are too many to list here. However, some of the most common tricks include:
If you signed an arbitration clause, arbitration might be impossible to avoid. Arbitration, however, is quicker and simpler than courtroom litigation, and even an arbitration clause cannot stop you from negotiating a settlement. So you’re not necessarily at a disadvantage.
A deposition is a pretrial proceeding in which witnesses are questioned by each party’s lawyers. The witnesses are under oath, the proceedings are recorded, and anything said at a deposition can be used against you at a trial. Unless a trial is near, you probably won’t have to attend a deposition.
Any lawyer who passes the bar exam can rent an office and represent clients in most types of cases – regardless of whether he has any actual real-world experience. In nearly a quarter of a century of practicing personal injury law, however, our East Garfield Park personal injury lawyers have picked up the experience that makes all the difference in our clients’ lives.
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
