Traffic often snarls on 59th street, and an accident somewhere in Gage Park is a daily occurrence. Auto accidents are not the only dangers that Gage Park residents must guard against, however. Like anywhere else, a host of potential dangers await you as soon as you walk out your door. Distressingly, no matter how careful you are, you can always be blindsided by the carelessness of someone else.
The Illinois justice system offers fair compensation for people who are injured by the misconduct of someone else. The Illinois justice system, however, is adversarial to its core – settling a claim at trial, or even at the negotiating table, sometimes resembles a boxing match.

A hospital bed is no place to be fighting a battle for justice, especially at just the moment when you are least emotionally prepared to deal with it all. That is where we come in if you want us to. At Malman Law, we bring formidable weapons to the battle – nearly a quarter century of experience and nearly $200 million in compensation awarded to over 20,000 former clients.
Our legal fees are taken out of your compensation – and if we don’t win, you don’t pay us anything at all.

As a consequence, well over 90 percent of our clients’ claims are resolved out of court. The bottom line is that you probably won’t have to testify.
It is possible, but difficult. Uber drivers are independent contractors, not employees. This means that Uber is not responsible for the negligence of its drivers, only its own negligence. Uber does offer liability insurance coverage to its drivers.
No, we absolutely cannot accept a settlement without your written permission, and we would be subject to severe professional discipline if we did. We would never do this even if it wasn’t a violation of attorney’s ethical rules, because it is against our firm’s ethics.
To the extent that you are physically able, you should:
Under the Illinois dog bite statute, you must prove:
You do not have to prove that the dog owner was negligent.
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
