Montclare Personal Injury

Malman Law. Premier Personal Injury Attorneys

Injury Attorney Steven J. Malman

Leading Montclare Personal Injury Lawyers Serving the Chicago Area

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.

Settlement vs. Trial

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.

Fighting for Injury Victims for Nearly a Quarter of a Century

At Malman Law, the professional awards and accolades just keep rolling in. We prefer not to dwell on these, however – we’d rather let the numbers do the talking for us:

  • We’ve been practicing personal injury law since 1994
  • Our batting average is above .950 – we win 95 percent of our cases
  • We have obtained compensation for over 15,000 clients, more than the total population of Montclare
  • We have recovered a cumulative total of over $200 million and counting for our clients

A Word from a Former Client of Ours

“The Malman Law team is exceptional. Knows personal injury law, very responsive to my personal workers’ comp case, recovered money I thought I would never see. And it happened twice as fast as I thought it would. Thank you, Malman Law.”

Types of Cases We Handle

Our proven Chicago injury attorneys have handled just about every type of personal injury claim on numerous occasions, including:

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is a family exclusion in an auto insurance policy?

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.

Is my claim hopeless if I signed a liability waiver?

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:

  • How the waiver is worded

  • Whether the waiver is “conspicuous” (e.g., if it is hidden away in the fine print of a long contract, it might be invalidated)

  • The cause of the accident – a liability waiver will not protect a defendant from liability for gross negligence or intentional misconduct

What do I need to prove to win a medical malpractice claim?

To win a medical malpractice claim, you must prove:

  • A doctor-patient relationship existed (roadside first aid administered by a bystander might not qualify, for example)

  • Substandard medical care (negligence)

  • The negligence actually caused your injuries

  • The negligence caused you damages (medical expenses, pain and suffering, etc.)

What are the conditions for medical expense reimbursement?

To qualify for medical expenses reimbursement, your expenses must be:

  • related to the accident,

  • medically necessary,

  • recommended by your treating physician, and

  • consistent with the total amount of damages you are claiming.

Our Zero Fee Guarantee Means You Can Afford Us No Matter What

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.
