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.

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.
