Hermosa, Chicago Experienced Personal Injury Attorneys
Hermosa, Chicago, including the neighborhoods of Hermosa and Kelvyn Park, sits on Chicago’s northwest side and is dominated by single-family homes – along with the spectacular architecture of the St. Philomena Catholic Church. Many Hermosa residents have come to see us over the years after suffering a personal injury caused by someone else’s wrongful behavior.
You Don’t Have to Submit to Injustice
It is truly unfortunate when you suffer a personal injury that “just happened.” Sometimes, an accident really isn’t anybody’s fault. But if your accident was the avoidable consequence of someone else’s careless or even intentional misconduct, justice demands that you be fully compensated for all of your losses, both physical and psychological.
When you are injured through someone else’s wrongful conduct, Illinois law gives you a legal claim for compensation based on the severity of your injury. A claim is an abstract legal concept and nothing more, however, until you enforce it. Enforcement might not even take place in court – in fact, most of our clients’ claims are resolved at the settlement table.
The Number 95 and What It Means When You Retain Us
At Malman Law, 95 is a lucky number. It is “lucky” because historically, 95 percent of our clients have received monetary compensation for their injuries through our efforts, for an aggregate total of over $200 million. 95 means something else too – it is the percentage of our winning clients who obtained private settlements without having to endure the hassle of a courtroom trial.
Since our firm’s 1994 founding, we have obtained compensation for over 20,000 clients – equivalent to about 60 percent of the population of Hermosa. We can help you determine how much your claim is worth, and we can help you enforce it – preferably at the settlement table or, if necessary, in court.
Malman Law did everything I asked for and more. After I contacted the firm, someone came out to see me immediately. They were courteous and made sure all of my calls were returned. I was very happy with the result. – Jerry J

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1) I was injured in a drunken driving accident. Can I sue the bar that sold alcohol to the driver?
Maybe. The Illinois Liquor Control Act allows victims of intoxicated drivers to collect damages from a bar that sold alcohol to the driver, if and only if the driver’s resulting intoxication actually caused the accident. You don’t need to prove that the establishment had any reason to believe that the driver was already intoxicated when he was served.
2) I broke my hip because I slipped on a wet floor at a grocery store. Can I sue the grocery store?
Perhaps. Owners and renters of property are legally bound to keep their premises reasonably safe for invited guests, including customers of business establishments. If you can prove that the shopping center was negligent and that this negligence caused your accident, you likely have a winnable case.
3) Do I automatically lose if the accident was partly my fault?
Depending on your degree of fault, you could either lose or face reduced damages.
- If you were at least 50 percent at fault, you will lose.
- If you were less than 50 percent at fault, your damages will be reduced but not eliminated.
- If you were not at fault, you will be entitled to 100 percent of your damages.
4) What types of personal injury damages are available?
- Economic damages are awarded for medical expenses, lost earnings, and other countable losses.
- Non-economic damages are awarded for intangible losses such as pain and suffering, or for grief and sorrow (in wrongful death cases).
- Punitive damages are awarded in certain cases where the defendant’s conduct was particularly egregious. Punitive damages are limited to three times the amount of economic damages.
