The human body is so fragile that it is surprising that we stay healthy as long as we do. A personal injury can happen in a myriad of ways, from a car accident on the Eden Expressway to a dog bite in your next-door neighbor’s front yard. Many of these accidents are unavoidable, but a legal claim arises when one person carelessly (or intentionally) injures another.
More specifically, about 95% of our winning clients end up with private settlements without ever having to go to trial. When we do go to trial, however, we almost always win. The irony is that the better your courtroom record is, the less often you have to go to court! This is because the opposing party would rather settle a claim than risk losing a courtroom battle against a firm with a strong record of success in trial.
At Malman Law, we know our way around both the courtroom and the settlement table. That’s not surprising, since we have served over 20,000 personal injury clients since 1994, bringing in over $200,000,000. With a batting average of .950 (95% of our clients win compensation), we are confident of our ability to maximize your chances of receiving full compensation.
The Forest Glen community of Chicago is a peaceful oasis on the Northwest Side of Chicago. Indeed, strolling through neighborhoods like Sauganash Park and Wildwood is a delightful way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Following are only a few examples of the types of claims that our Forest Glen personal injury lawyers frequently handle:
The ultimate measure of the success of your personal injury claim is how much compensation you eventually receive, not how many hours we work on your case. That is why we don’t charge by “billable hours.” You pay nothing upfront and, since our fees are calculated as a percentage of your compensation, you will owe us nothing – ever – unless you actually receive compensation.

Under the Illinois Dram Shop Act, if you are injured by a drunken driver you can sue the bar, nightclub, or restaurant that served him the alcohol that intoxicated him. You don’t have to prove that the establishment knew or should have known he was intoxicated at the time he was served.
Some of the most common errors are:
Compensatory damages are designed to compensate the injured victim for his economic and non-economic losses, while punitive damages are designed to punish the defendant for malicious behavior or gross negligence. An award for punitive damages is relatively uncommon.
A good law firm pays it own way, by allowing you to win a claim that you otherwise would have lost, or by securing far more compensation than you would have been able to arrange on your own. Here is what our Forest Glen personal injury lawyers at Malman Law can do for you:
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
