Indeed, there are as many types of personal injury cases as there are ways to get hurt. What they all have in common, however, are the fundamental principles of Illinois personal injury law. When the accident that injured you is not your fault, Illinois personal injury law is your ally. And so are we, should you choose to retain us.
If you decide to represent yourself, you are likely to be sitting across the settlement table from an insurance executive who has negotiated hundreds or even thousands of claims before. This executive has one purpose. Their sole purpose is to minimize your claim, or even deny it, so his employer can save money. If the opposing party is a business other than an insurance company, you will likely face one of their in-house lawyers who share the same objective.
Don’t expect things to be straightforward. For example, a favorite trick in a vehicle accident claim is to press you for the exact time of the accident, and then turn around and blame you for the accident by saying you took your eyes of the road to check the time. At Malman Law, most opponents know better than to even try pulling something like that on us. Let us do the negotiating for you.
Steve and Kelly were great! The entire process moved much faster than we thought it would. We received a nice size settlement. I would highly recommend Malman Law! — Susan
Below is only a partial list of the types of personal injury claims we handle:
We realize that personal injuries don’t just happen to the independently wealthy. It really doesn’t matter to us, as long as you have a good claim. We win 95 percent of our cases, and our fees are taken out of your recovery as a percentage of your compensation – which means you will owe us nothing until your money arrives. If we don’t secure compensation, then our legal fees will total $0.00.
A strong personal injury claim can become weaker over time if you delay pursuing it. You need to make sure not to miss the statute of limitations deadline, and you need to make sure that your lawyer has enough time to prepare your case. Call us today, 24/7, at 1-888-836-5975 or contact us online for a free initial case evaluation. Even if you are too hurt to come to us, we can come to you.
Not necessarily. A doctor cannot guarantee that your treatment will be successful any more than an attorney can guarantee that you will win your case. Even a medical error does not guarantee that you will win your lawsuit – after all, if every error was malpractice, doctors would have to be perfect to avoid malpractice liability. The real question is not whether the treatment was successful or not, but whether the doctor’s treatment rose to the level of a professional standard of care. Often it doesn’t.
The three of the most common misconceptions are:
Product defects can be divided into three different types:
It is possible to win a product liability lawsuit without proving that the defendant was at fault (you can sue a distributor for a manufacturing defect, for example).
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
