Grand Boulevard comprises about half of the Bronzeville neighborhood of the South Side of Chicago. Quite a number of Grand Boulevard residents have contacted us over the years, in great distress after suffering a personal injury that was caused by someone else’s misconduct. Indeed, we have met with clients at the Provident Hospital on 51st Street.
A serious personal injury – whether it arises from a car crash, a slip and fall accident, or even a dog attack – can hit you when you least expect it. Suddenly you are dealing not only with shock and pain but also with hospitalization, lost earnings, medical bills, and the need to deal with a personal injury compensation system that is complex, arcane, and competitive by nature.
Most personal injury victims do not end up receiving anywhere near the amount of compensation that their personal injury claim is worth. Some victims don’t even end up with enough to pay their medical bills. Some victims, traumatized by injury, meekly accept the unfair denial of their claim by an evasive defendant or insurance company.
It really makes us angry when we hear about cases like these, and we are determined not to let the same thing happen to any of our clients. Nobody messes with our clients. You might not realize how much your claim is really worth, but we will be able to come up with a fair estimate once we learn the details of your case. Depending on the circumstances, you may be eligible for:

Under the Illinois Wrongful Death Act, you can file a lawsuit if you are the personal representative of your husband’s estate (named in your husband’s will or appointed by the probate court).
Depending on the circumstances, your compensation may include amounts for:
You must prove the following five elements:
No. “Beyond a reasonable doubt” is the standard for a criminal prosecution, not a civil lawsuit. In a civil lawsuit you must prove your claim by a “preponderance of evidence” (about a 51% likelihood).
We are Malman Law, not a typical “jack of all trades” law firm. We represent personal injury victims, and only personal injury victims – we never represent defendants. And we feel pretty good about the results. Over the last 20 or so years we have:
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
