There are many people who find themselves in situations every day which could benefit from the expertise of a Chicago personal injury attorney. But many do not take the next step to contact a qualified legal professional. Why? Many people have preconceived notions regarding personal injury attorneys. For example:

I Cannot Afford to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney

In reality, reputable personal injury attorneys in Chicago and nationwide offer free initial consultations at the very least. Most even go beyond the initial complimentary consultation and offer something similar to Malman Law’s “No Fee Guarantee” – meaning you do not pay legal fees unless you receive compensation. The truth is, many people can’t afford not to hire a personal injury attorney.


I Do Not Need a Personal Injury Attorney to Receive Compensation

While it is true that you do not need to contact a legal professional to receive compensation, chances are good that not hiring an attorney will effect the amount of your compensation and the time in which you receive it. Remember, insurance companies are responsible for acting in their own best interest – not yours. They may be focused on settling your claim for the least amount of money possible, often dragging out the process in hopes that you will accept less money. Chicago personal injury attorneys have experience dealing with insurance companies, and know how to avoid unnecessary delays while ensuring that you – the client – receive the maximum possible reward.

My Current Attorney Should Assist Me With My Personal Injury Case

Unless your attorney has extensive experience with personal injury, they are not the best choice to file a personal injury claim; however, they are a fantastic resource for referring you to the right person. Personal injury cases are unlike other types of cases and can be very tedious, time consuming and complicated. Dealing with an attorney who has personal injury experience will save time and likely increase the amount of compensation you receive as a result of their expertise.

If you or a loved one have sustained a personal injury, you should speak with a qualified personal injury attorney right away. The Law Offices of Stephen J. Malman have extensive personal injury experience – including car, truck and motorcycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, dog bites, nursing home abuse and neglect, wrongful death and many more – and are available to discuss your case at any time.
