Experienced Injury Attorneys Serving Accident Victims in North Chicago
Just north of the City of Chicago is an outer suburb, North Chicago, that boasts many of the “small town” perks while remaining in relative proximity to the hustle and bustle of the city. According to census data from 2010, the population is just over 30,000, making this area’s cultural and social landscape much different than its larger suburbs. Many would agree that North Chicago’s location – with its beautiful lake views, forest preserve, and several sprawling parks and golf courses – makes this area a small oasis from the city.
While North Chicago houses prestigious institutions like Chicago Medical School and the Great Lakes Naval Training center, the city has been hard hit by the economic recession. With a relatively non-affluent population saddled with an oversized tax burden, North Chicago faces serious economic difficulty. At one time, the city served as the home of Jelly Belly’s main factory and attracted visitors to tour the facility. Today, that factory is gone, and many businesses on Sheridan Road have similarly gone by the wayside. For these reasons, when residents of North Chicago are injured, especially by no fault of their own, it can have a devastating impact of their lives, their families, and their financial futures.
Car Accident Attorney
While it can difficult to navigate the city during a booming economy, it is even harder to conduct your life effectively after being injured in North Chicago. If you’ve been involved in a car accident on Green Bay Road, Sheridan Road, down Skokie Highway, or even on a smaller city street while on your way to a local park or to the downtown area, you will need the legal expertise of Malman Law.
Our lawyers can help you determine who was at-fault, and make sure that you are able to receive compensation for your injuries, medical bills, and even pain and suffering. Don’t let someone else’s negligence ruin your life.
Medical Malpractice Attorney
When you visit a hospital or physician – for anything from a standard check-up to outpatient surgery to more life-threatening treatments and diagnoses – you place a certain level of faith in the healthcare provider. When something goes terribly wrong, and you suspect that the doctor or treating facility acted negligently, call Malman Law for a case evaluation.
While not all incidents of unexpected medical side-effects or poor results are cases of medical malpractice, this is a growing problem each year in the U.S., and you don’t want to be victim of hospital, staff, or physician negligence.
Workers’ Compensation Attorney
If you have been injured on the job while working in North Chicago or anywhere else in the city, you may be entitled to just compensation through workers’ compensation. Although workers’ compensation is a “no fault” system, which means that employees do not need to provide proof of employer fault, employers and their insurance companies are ready to fight against your claim for compensation.
If you feel that your employer is unwilling to cooperate, or if there is retaliation from the company, it’s important to contact an expert attorney immediately. The team at Steven J. Malman Attorneys at Law are ready to fight on your behalf against employers. We handle workers’ compensation claims for workers in the following industries:
- Construction workers
- Factory workers
- Railroad workers
- Truck drivers
- Union employees
- And more
Not only is it important to consult an accident and injury attorney at Malman Law to ensure that your claim is processed fairly and lawfully, but there may be other avenues for additional compensation, depending on the specifics of your case. Call us now to get started.

Injured North Chicago residents often refrain from retaining personal injury attorneys out of concern over the costs of legal services. What these injury victims do not realize, however, is that personal injury lawyers can represent claimants on what’s known as a contingency basis. This means that, unless the attorney can recoup money for you – either via a settlement or via a victory at trial – you don’t have to pay anything. In other words, it’s a risk-free strategy.
At Malman Law, we offer a zero fee guarantee to empower clients, and make it possible for everyone to seek compensation for injuries. Our firm has earned a reputation as a client-focused, aggressive, creative, and successful team of legal professionals. We are ready to help evaluate your case and strategize the next steps.
