Some of our Montclare clients contact us after a vehicle accident on Harlem Avenue, Belmont Avenue, or another local thoroughfare. Others seek assistance obtaining justice after a dog attack, medical malpractice, a workplace injury, or an accidental death. What binds these people together is their common circumstance – they were harmed by the wrongful act of another.
You don’t have to simply accept the devastating consequences of serious personal injury. At Malman Law, we won’t let them get away with it. Once you are injured through the wrongful conduct of another, a personal injury claim arises under Illinois law. Claims don’t enforce themselves, however. That’s OK, because enforcing personal injury claims is exactly what our highly experienced Montclare personal injury lawyers do.
Settling your claim out of court is generally the best option because it is quicker, easier, and less stressful. In fact, over 95 percent of our clients receive settlements without ever having to go to court. Nevertheless, just as the best way to prevent a war is to prepare for one, the best way to win a generous settlement is to prepare thoroughly for trial. Our Montclare personal injury lawyers know just how to do that.

A family exclusion is a clause that prevents you from filing a claim against a family member’s insurance policy. For example, suppose you are a passenger in an accident caused by your husband. If your husband’s auto insurance policy contains a family exclusion clause, you cannot successfully claim against it for your injuries.
Not necessarily. You might have signed a rent-a-car agreement that included a liability waiver, for example. Whether the liability waiver is valid under Illinois law depends on several factors, including:
To win a medical malpractice claim, you must prove:
To qualify for medical expenses reimbursement, your expenses must be:
When you win 95 percent of your cases as we do, you don’t need to worry about “billable hours.” We don’t. Instead, our fee is calculated as a percentage of your eventual recovery. That means you will owe us nothing until your money arrives – and if it doesn’t arrive, your bill from us will be zero.
2 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
