The Loop is the heart of Chicago. Unfortunately, it is also the most congested, and it sees more than its share of traffic accidents on Lake Shore Drive, I-290, State Street and elsewhere – despite the fact that the frequent congestion keeps the average speed low. A traffic accident is not the only type of personal injury you risk every day. Anything from medical malpractice to a dog bite can trigger liability. Many personal injury victims end up at the Northwest Memorial Hospital, and we have met many clients there. A personal injury becomes a legal claim when an accident is one person’s fault yet another person is injured as a result. If this has happened to you, it’s OK to get angry – especially if your anger motivates you to seek the justice you deserve.
Private settlement is the best option for most people – as long as the other party is willing to make a fair offer. Defendants have been known to laugh at claimants who cannot demonstrate the ability to force them to pay by winning in court. However, nobody is laughing at us – which must be why 95 percent of our clients walk away with private settlements rather than trial verdicts.
The way we have set up our billing arrangements, it is essentially the opposing party who pays, not you– our fees are charged as a percentage of the amount we win for you. And under our Zero Fee Guarantee, if we don’t win, you don’t pay – at all, ever. If you do win, you won’t owe us a dime until the money arrives. The reason we can afford to do business this way is that we win 95 percent of our cases.
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:
Illinois dog bite law , a section of the Animal Control Act, allows injured dog bite victims to win a personal injury claim against the owner of a dog without even proving negligence. Two relevant defenses are trespassing and provocation. Most homeowner’s insurance policies cover dog bites.
Depending on the seriousness of your injuries, you should:
You will have to prove negligence, recklessness or intentional misconduct on the part of the at-fault driver. Some examples of negligence are:
The standard of proof is “preponderance of the evidence”, which means something like 51% likely.
A deposition is an out-of-court Q&A session that is used to gather evidence for a trial. If you are questioned, you will be placed under oath. If you contradict yourself later in court, your answers in the deposition can be used to attack your credibility and, in extreme cases, charge you with perjury.
In over 25 years of practice, we have represented over 20,000 clients, and we have brought home an astounding $200 billion and counting for these clients. Although we cannot make any ironclad guarantee of results, it is a fact that some of our clients have walked away with multimillion dollar recoveries. Let us put our abilities to work for you.
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.
