At Malman Law, we have discovered that the most effective response when someone has injured you through their carelessness or other misconduct is something we call “empowering anger,” to be contrasted sharply with “helpless anger.” Our East Side personal injury attorneys see it as our job to provide you with the legal muscle you need to demand and obtain full compensation for everything you have lost.
You may have heard talk about retainers and billable hours, and that might have led you to believe that you cannot afford to retain us. At Malman Law, however, we don’t ask for retainers and we don’t charge by the hour. Our fees are taken out as a percentage of the amount we eventually recover for you – and if you don’t win, you don’t pay.
Winning is a way of life at our firm, however. Although we cannot offer any guarantees, we can point to the fact that we win over 95 percent of our cases – and the vast majority of these victories are settled out of court. If the opposing party insists, however, we are more than ready to battle it out in court. And our successful track record proves our highly experienced East Side personal injury attorneys know what they’re doing.
Insurance companies in particular tend to become a LOT more cooperative once our clients inform them that we are the firm representing them!
Following are only a few examples of the types of personal injury claims our Chicago personal injury lawyers handle:
East Side, Chicago attracts visitors from elsewhere in Chicago and further afield to enjoy Eggers Woods and Calumet Park. Our East Side personal injury clients contact after suffering a serious injury such as a motorcycle crash or a workplace accident. Many of them end up at the South Shore Hospital, the Advocate Trinity Hospital, or another nearby medical center.

The following policies (among others) should help to protect your claim:
An insurance company will use anything it can, including:
Perhaps. Under Illinois contributory fault law, you can still win as long as the defendant was even more at fault than you were. However, your damages will be reduced in proportion to your degree of fault. For instance, if you were 15 percent at fault, then 15 percent will be subtracted from your compensation.
Your claim might be worth more than you think it is. For example, pain and suffering damages often amount to far more than reimbursement for medical expenses. Over the last 20-plus years we’ve collected more than $200,000,000 in personal injury damages for over 20,000 clients, including many multi-million-dollar settlements. Let our East Side personal injury lawyers put their experience to work for you.
The fundamentals of personal injury law are broadly similar no matter how you are injured, and in certain types of claims you can win even without showing fault on the part of the defendant. To win, though, you will need to prevail over an intricate and brutally competitive Chicago personal injury compensation system.
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
