Experienced Norwood Park Personal Injury Lawyers Serving the People of Chicago
So many of our current and former clients call Norwood Park home that we cannot even begin to count them all. They hail from places like Big Oaks, Old Norwood Park, Oriole Park and Union Ridge, among others. We visit frequently, and a couple of us have only recently admitted our fondness for Superdawgs, especially during the Memorial Day Parade and the annual Serb Fest.
When the time comes for work, however, our thoughts are drawn to a couple of more sobering realities – first, the human body is fragile and very easy to injury, and second, sometimes the wrongful behavior of one person causes serious injury to another. It’s not fair, of course – you shouldn’t have to suffer from an accident that was someone else’s fault. It is this very injustice, however, that gives rise to a personal injury claim.
Justice Has to Be Fought For – And That’s Our Job
Malman Law has been around awhile – nearly a quarter of a century, to be a bit more precise. During that time, we have dedicated ourselves to our sole occupation – helping injured victims receive the compensation they are entitled to. After 20,000 clients and over $200 million in compensation awarded, we feel we are just getting started. Let us put our experience and expertise to work for you.
We know that with medical bills piling up, you need money fast. Insurance companies and defendants know that too, which is why they often take advantage of personal injury victims by offering them quick but inadequate settlements. We won’t let them get away with it. Instead, we will work for the quickest fair settlement we can arrange. If that doesn’t work, we are ready to go to court for you.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1) What should I do immediately after an injury traffic accident?
To the extent that you are able, you should:
- Call the police.
- Exchange contact and insurance details with the other driver
- Collect contact details from eyewitnesses.
- Seek medical attention. Do not delay, even if you believe your injuries are minor.
- Contact a lawyer if you believe the accident was the other driver’s fault.
2) What are some common mistakes I should avoid?
- Speak to your insurance company without consulting with your lawyer first
- Contradict yourself (insurance companies will seize on this!).
- Accept a quick settlement without consulting your attorney.
- Delay medical treatment.
- Post material about your accident on social media.
- Talk to other people about the accident (they could be used as witnesses against you).
- Delay contacting a personal injury lawyer.
3) Is it possible to file a claim over a single-vehicle accident?
Yes, if the facts of your case support such a claim. The road may have been improperly maintained, for example, your accident could have been caused by a defective auto part, or another vehicle could have caused you to swerve into a tree.
4) What is “comparative fault”?
When more than one party is at fault for the accident, Illinois comparative fault principles determine how much the claimant receives, if anything. If you were less at fault for the accident than the defendant was, you will receive damages that are precisely discounted by your own percentage of fault (you might lose 35 percent, for example). Otherwise, your claim will be dismissed.
Our Zero Fee Guarantee
We win 95 percent of our clients’ cases, and that makes a huge difference in the way we do business. We are so confident that we can win compensation for you, that if you turn out to be one of the five percent who walks away empty-handed, you will owe us a grand total of $0.00 in legal fees. If you are among the 95 percent who win, you still won’t owe us anything until the other side actually pays your claim.
