Diligent Personal Injury Law Firm for the People of Chicago’s North Center area
If you live in North Center and you have been injured, the attorneys at Malman Law are ready to help. Unfortunately, we have witnessed many traffic accidents on Ravenswood Avenue and Diversey Parkway, and we have counseled injured clients at Kindred Hospital on West Montrose Avenue. Traffic accidents, however, represent just a fraction of the serious personal injuries that can happen.
A serious injury is tragic enough. Insult is added to injury, however, when you discover that your suffering is the completely avoidable consequence of somebody else’s misconduct. When you realize this, it is time to get angry, because anger will empower you to seek justice. After all these years, we still have to fight off indignation when we see the tragic results of someone’s utter carelessness.
If We Don’t Win Your Case, Our Services are Free
In over two decades of practicing only personal injury law, we have represented over 20,000 clients. 95 percent of our clients have won compensation for their injuries. Add it all up and the total amount we have recovered for our clients exceeds $200 million. A number of our clients have even won multimillion dollar recoveries.
If it weren’t for our 95 percent victory rate, we would go out of business offering our clients a 100 percent discount if we don’t win their case. Yet that is exactly what we offer you. And if we do win, you will not owe us anything until your money actually arrives. It is the strength of your claim that matters most to us, not how much money you have.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1) What kinds of witnesses might I need to prove my case?
Two kinds of witnesses are most important – eyewitnesses and expert witnesses (such as a medical expert in a medical malpractice case).
2) What are some common misunderstandings about personal injury claims?
Three of the most common misunderstandings are:
- Personal injury claims take years to resolve. Although this sometimes happens, most claims are resolved within a few weeks or a few months.
- You can save money by representing yourself. In fact, this approach might cost you money, since a good lawyer routinely adds so much value to a client’s recovery that it more than pays for his fees.
- The defendant’s insurance company will pay your hospital bills on time. In fact, they are unlikely to pay out a dime until they have either reached a settlement or lost at trial.
3) What types of product defects do I need to find to support a product liability claim?
Illinois product liability law recognizes three types of product defects:
- design defects;
- manufacturing defects; and
- “warning defects” (inadequate, missing, or misleading product warnings).
You can win a lawsuit by proving that the product was unreasonably dangerous, even if the defendant was not at fault.
4) Can I file a claim over a criminal assault such as a nightclub beating?
Yes, you can, and you may be able to win punitive damages in addition to normal compensatory damages. Unfortunately, few insurance policies cover intentional assaults by the insured. If a bouncer beat you, however, you might be able to sue the nightclub.
95 Percent of Our Clients’ Cases are Settled Privately
A generous private settlement amount is usually superior to a lawsuit judgment, because it is simply quicker and easier than a lawsuit. However, reaching a fair settlement with a professional negotiator (usually an insurance adjustor), is not so easy unless you have done it many times before. We have, and we are ready to put our skills to work for you.
