Lincoln Square is the jewel of Chicago’s North Side. We have represented clients from Ravenswood Gardens, Bowmanville and Budlong Wood and other neighborhoods. On weekends, some of us frequent Lincoln Square’s cobblestone streets, explore its vibrant arts and crafts scene and enjoy its tremendous variety of ethnic cuisine. With all of this to enjoy, sometimes it is easy to forget the dangers that lurk in any urban area (or anywhere else, for that matter) – car crashes, slip and fall accidents, dog bites and even more insidious dangers such as medical malpractice and defective prescription drugs. Most of us spend little time reflecting on these everyday dangers until they hit us.
The immediate aftermath of a serious accident is a time of shock, pain, and confusion. All of this may give way to anger when you realize that your accident was caused by someone else who acted negligently, recklessly, or even intentionally. This is the moment when you need to start thinking about how you will enforce your legal claim for compensation against the party who caused all of this. At Malman Law, protecting the rights of the injured is what we do – in fact, it is all we do, all day long. You won’t find us writing wills, setting up trust funds, defending criminal defendants or litigating business disputes. Personal injury law is what we do, and it is all we have been doing for nearly a quarter of a century now. And we are good at what we do.
At Malman Law, you only pay if we win your case, and only after the defendant pays your claim. If we don’t win, you will owe us nothing.
“If anyone has a problem and is in need of help call Malman Law. At Malman Law you are not just a client, you are part of the family.” — Donyell G.
The most common types of claims that we handle include:
It is easier to win a dog bite claim in Illinois than it is in many other states. The Illinois dog bite statute doesn’t even require you to prove negligence on the part of the dog owner. The two most common defenses are trespassing and provoking the dog. Most homeowner’s insurance policies cover dog bite claims.
Yes, you can sue a pedestrian, although pedestrian accident cases can be difficult to win because of the pedestrian’s general right-of-way. Some of the most common causes of pedestrian-initiated car accidents include:
Following are some important principles:
Statistically, few of our clients’ personal injury claims ever go to trial. Most are negotiated and finalized in private settlement agreements. In many cases, however, it is necessary to file a lawsuit to gain negotiating leverage. Even then, most cases are resolved before trial.
Which law firm you choose to represent you is an incredibly important decision. Not only might it make the difference between victory and defeat, it will almost certainly play a large part in exactly how much money you receive. At Malman Law, we bat .950 – we win about 95 percent of our clients’ cases. Among these, the same percentage – about 95 percent – are settled out of court.
They area very helpful and when it come to getting things done with your case I had the pleasureof working with Jason Kellerman he was awesome I highly recommend them.

I was rear-ended by a semi-truck on my way to work. I was transported to the hospital and my car was totaled. In the aftermath, Dan Petrich and Anna Schmidt from Malman Law helped me get set up with physical therapy and negotiated with the insurance companies to make sure the resulting settlement would cover my medical bills and a rental car until I could get a new car. I would highly recommend their services.
would do everything they could for me.
