A Chicago Personal Injury Law Firm with a Stellar Track Record Serving the People of Lincoln Park
For those outside of Chicago, Lincoln Park may conjure up the image of the millennial rock band with a similar name. For those of us who call Chicago home, however, the Lincoln Park district is the heart of the city. Indeed, life would be drearier without shopping on Armitage Avenue, dining on Clark Street, catching shows at the Apollo Theatre Chicago or attending the Lincoln Park Greek Fest every spring.
In the midst of all of this cosmopolitan excitement, however, it can be easy to forget about danger until an accident strikes. With dizzying speed, you can find yourself in unexpected pain, perhaps in the unfamiliar surroundings of a hospital. When the dust settles, you may find yourself under financial distress while medical bills pile up as you count down your remaining sick leave days.
Fair Compensation Means a Lot More Than Just Reimbursed Medical Expenses
Illinois personal injury law secures your right to fair compensation when you are injured through the fault of someone else. Most people, however, drastically underestimate the true value of their claim, and many end up settling for a paltry sum while greedy insurance adjusters rub their hands in glee. You don’t have to let that happen. Instead, retain experienced legal counsel to represent you.
At Malman Law, securing verdicts and settlements for injured clients is our job. It’s what we do all day, every day – we have never represented defendants and we never will. Over 20,000 clients have already obtained compensation through our efforts, to the tune of over $200,000,000 in the aggregate. On top of that, 95 percent of our clients secure settlements, meaning that they need not to testify in court.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1) Can I sue an alcohol vendor for serving alcohol to a driver who later injured me?
Yes, you can. Under the Illinois Dram Shop Law, you can sue a vendor who sold or gave alcohol to someone if their resulting intoxication was a substantial cause of your injuries.
2) What are some common mistakes that I should try to avoid?
Some of the most common mistakes are:
- Delaying medical treatment.
- Lying or contradicting yourself in statements to the insurance company or the opposing party.
- Giving a verbal or written statement to the insurance company, or accepting a settlement, without consulting your injury attorney first.
3) Can I win the case by proving that the defendant broke the law?
Yes, if you meet the following conditions:
- You are in the class of people the law was designed to protect;
- The law was designed to prevent the type of injury you suffered; and
- The defendant’s violation actually caused your injuries.
4) What is “comparative fault?”
Comparative fault determines who wins the case, and how much they receive, when both parties were at fault. As long as the accident was less than 50 percent your fault, you will receive at least some compensation. The court will subtract from your damages in proportion to your degree of fault.
We Understand That Time Matters to You
We realize that you probably have pressing financial needs. From the moment we take your case, we will be aiming to secure full compensation for you, as soon as we possibly can without allowing you to be shortchanged. If the opposing party insists, however, we are ready and willing to slug it out in court until we achieve victory (which is, by the way, about 95 percent of the time).
