Experienced Accident Attorneys Protecting the Injured in North Side Chicago
Near North Side is a jewel that sparkles for resident and visitor alike. Whether we are shopping on the Magnificent Mile, strolling through the Gold Coast Historic District, enjoying the shores of Lake Michigan, or straining our necks to view one of the world’s tallest skylines, Near North Side’s urban vibrancy never fails to dazzle us.
Near North Side’s irrepressible vitality comes with an ironic price tag, however – in the midst of all of the hustle and bustle lurk dangers that most of us shrug off. Once you suffer an accident, however, everything changes in an instant. At first, pain and fear compete with shock and confusion. It usually isn’t until later that the grim reality of your losses begins to set in.
Justice is Available for Those Who Are Willing to Fight
If the accident you suffered was caused by the misconduct of someone else – a drunken driver, a careless doctor, or an abusive nursing home attendant to name a few – Illinois personal injury law entitles you to full compensation as a matter of right. The trick is turning an abstract legal right into the cold hard reality of cash in your pocket. That is where Malman Law comes in.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1) Can I win a claim over a “whiplash” injury?
Yes, you can. The term “whiplash” is an informal term for an entire family of soft-tissue injuries. Problematically, however, many whiplash injuries exhibit scant physical evidence despite the pain they cause, and these types of claims can be challenging to win.
2) Can I sue a nursing home for negligent care?
Yes, you can. Nursing home duties are largely defined by extensive state and federal regulations. To win, you must prove that:
- The nursing home was negligent (it breached its duty of care);
- You suffered harm; and
- The harm you suffered was a result of the nursing home’s negligence.
3) Can social media posts be used against me?
Yes, in many cases they can be. If you post a photo of yourself standing and smiling, for example, the insurance company could use it to claim that your injuries are not as serious as you claim they are. Be sure not to post anything misleading.
4) Who has the right to sue if the victim dies in the accident?
Under the Illinois wrongful death statute, the personal representative of the victim’s probate estate must file the lawsuit. The personal representative may be:
- The surviving spouse
- A surviving child
- A surviving parent
- Someone appointed by the court, if the victim left no will or did not name a personal representative
