Humboldt Park Personal Injury Lawyers Serving the People of Chicago
The Humboldt Park neighborhood is, quite frankly, an interesting place to be. This is particularly true in the summer, with the Division Street People’s Parade and the Fiesta Boricua beckoning visitors from across the country. The 606 elevated trail and park system, however, is one of Humboldt Park’s most innovative ideas and is probably the best way to view the neighborhood.
No place, no matter how interesting, is immune to danger, and Humboldt Park is no exception to this rule. Humboldt Park sees its share of injury traffic accidents, as well as other types of mishaps such as dog attacks, slip and fall accidents, and construction accidents. When something like this happens, nothing is more infuriating than the knowledge that it was caused by someone else’s misconduct.
Illinois Personal Injury Law Offers Justice
In theory, at least, anyone injured by the misconduct of someone else should receive full financial compensation for all of their losses – not only economic losses such as medical bills, but also intangible losses such as pain and suffering. Real justice, however, is not an abstract right that gathers dust in a law library. Real justice means cash in your pocket in the form of a verdict or settlement.
At Malman Law, our job is to make that happen for you. It is what we have been doing for nearly a quarter of a century now, to the exclusion of any other field of law. As our 20,000 former clients can testify, we have gotten good at what we do. “Good” doesn’t mean smooth talk – it means over $200 million recovered for our clients, and it means a 95 percent success rate.
What Our Clients Say
“Two 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.” – Malman Law Client

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1) Can I be certain that you will keep our conversations confidential?
Yes, you can. None of us would ever reveal a client confidence without the explicit permission of the client. In addition to personal honor, we could be subject to severe penalties from the bar association for such unprofessional behavior.
2) My damages exceed the defendant’s policy limits. Is there any other source of compensation I can rely on?
Potential alternative sources of compensation include:
- Your own underinsured motorist insurance policy
- The defendant’s personal assets
- The defendant’s umbrella policy
- The manufacturer of a defective and unreasonably dangerous, such as tires
3) What are some common mistakes I should watch out for?
Some of the most common pitfalls include:
- Lying or contradicting yourself (insurance companies will seize on this!)
- Accepting a quick settlement
- Delaying medical treatment
- Talking to other people about your case, or posting related material on social media
4) Is it possible to receive compensation for a single-vehicle accident?
Yes, under certain circumstances. The road may have been defective, the accident could have been caused by a defective auto part, or a pedestrian or another vehicle could have caused the accident even if there was no collision.
5) Can I file a claim over a “road rage” incident or another intentional act?
Yes, you certainly can. It is even possible that you might be eligible for punitive damages in addition to the normal compensatory damages. You might have trouble collecting punitive damages from the defendant’s insurance policy, however.
“But I Can’t Afford to Hire a Lawyer”
Yes, you can. At Malman Law, we will charge you nothing upfront to take your case. We don’t charge by the hour, either – our legal fees are calculated as a percentage of the amount we bring back for you. Although our batting average for verdicts and settlements is .950, in the unlikely event that we fail to win compensation for you, our legal fees will total precisely $0.00.
The Sooner You Act, the Better
We know that you are in a hurry to receive compensation, and we know that you’d rather not testify in court. Fortunately, over 95 percent of our care resolutions are out-of-court settlements, not courtroom verdicts.
