Dedicated Near South Side Lawyers

A Personal Injury Law Firm for the People of Greater Chicago

A serious accident can turn your life upside down in a millisecond. You might find yourself literally upside down in an automobile accident on the Stevenson Expressway, for example. Or you might fall down a flight of stairs at a local shopping center. No matter how it happens, a lot of distress will enter your life immediately.

When you realize that the accident that injured you was somebody else’s fault, it is natural to feel angry. You would be wise to contact a personal injury law firm to help you demand the proper compensation. Many of our clients over the years have called Near South Side home; in fact, we have met with quite a few at nearby Mercy Hospital and the University of Illinois Hospital.

How a Personal Injury Claim Typically Unfolds

The first step in formulating any personal injury claim is identifying the defendant. Once that is accomplished, the typical next step is to identify his insurer and file a claim with the insurer. Of course, not all personal injury claims are paid by insurers, but most are. Never forget that insurance companies are for-profit businesses that lose money every time they pay a claim.

Insurance company executives are professional negotiators with only one goal – to save as much money as possible for their employer. And they will eat you alive if you attempt to represent yourself in a substantial claim. But that’s OK – at Malman Law we are professional negotiators too. We know all their tricks, and we won’t let them take advantage of you.

We’re Here to Help

Insurance companies lose money when they pay your claim. It’s different with us. Our fees are calculated as a percentage of your eventual compensation, so we only make money when you do. And if we come out empty-handed, we won’t charge you a dime for our services –  that’s our Zero Fee Guarantee.

A Word from a Client of Ours

“Two 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.” – Malman Law Client

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Yes, you can. The pedestrian’s general right-of-way, however, can make the claim more difficult to win. Some of the most common instances of pedestrian negligence are:

  • Jaywalking
  • Drunkenness/intoxication
  • Attempting to cross an interstate highway

Any expense can be denied – the real question is whether they can get away with it. They can get away with it if they can establish that the expense was:

  • Unrelated to the accident
  • Unnecessary
  • Excessive
  • Not approved by your primary care doctor
  • In excess of your policy limits

Possibly. Some of the most likely candidates are:

  • The defendant’s assets
  • Your own insurance policy
  • The defendant’s employer (under certain circumstances)

The defendant’s umbrella policy (in an auto accident)

Yes, you can. Under the Illinois Product Liability Act, under most circumstances you can claim against the manufacturer or anyone else in the product’s chain of distribution for an injury caused by a defective product.

It’s Time to Make it Happen

It is important to get started with your claim as soon as possible after your accident, while the evidence is still fresh. We are committed to keeping the process as easy as possible for you, so that you can concentrate on recovering from your injuries. Call us today at 1-888-836-5975 or simply fill in our online contact form, and we will schedule you a free initial case consultation.
