Oak Lawn Accident Attorneys

Malman Law. Premier Personal Injury Attorneys

Injury Attorney Steven J. Malman

Dedicated Oak Lawn Accident Attorneys

If you’ve been in an accident in Oak Lawn, Illinois, you need the assistance of an accident attorney. Although Oak Lawn is a beautiful suburb of Chicago and is home to almost 60,000 residents, looks can be deceiving. In 1967, an enormous tornado devastated Oak Law. The damages were assessed at more than $50 million and dozens of people were killed. Although that was what is commonly known as an act of God, it also proves to show you that an accident can happen to you at any time. Havng one of our an experienced and established Oak Lawn Accident Attorneys on your side can help.

If you’re involved in a car accident or if you believe that you’ve been injured as a result of medical malpractice, you should consult with our Oak Lawn accident lawyers to learn more about your legal rights and to get the compensation that you deserve.

The Elements of Negligence

Many accidents that occur in Oak Lawn are a result of negligence. Regardless of whether it is a car accident, a slip and fall, a dog bite, or other accident, it may be the result of negligence by another person. If your accident meets the following four elements, call Malman Law right away to set up a free consultation. It’s imperative that you call right away so that you don’t run out of time. Each state limits how long you can wait after your accident and still be able to recover. In Illinois, the statute of limitations for personal injury is just two years. So, call us right away if:

  1. A duty is owed. For instance, people who drive vehicles have a duty to have a driver’s license, insurance, and to drive in a safe manner. It is their duty to drive the speed limit.
  2. The duty must be breached. For example, all drivers have a duty of stopping at a red light. Running a red light is a breach of a legal duty.
  3. The accident must cause an actual injury. An accident that causes no injury, either personal or to property, doesn’t require going to court. However, if someone runs a red light and hits your vehicle, you may suffer actual injuries. These injuries will likely be physical, and your car will be damaged. Maybe you’re lucky and have no physical injuries, but your car is totaled. That’s still considered an actual injury. In these instances, you need an Oak Lawn accident attorney.
  4. There must be proximate cause. That means that the facts satisfy the ‘but-for’ test in order to be eligible to receive compensation for damages. “But-for the defendant running a red light and hitting the passenger side of the plaintiff’s vehicle, the plaintiff would not have suffered from broken ribs and sustained $5,000 in damages to their vehicle.” In short, you wouldn’t have been injured and your car wouldn’t have been damaged if it weren’t for the defendant running a red light and hitting your vehicle.

These elements are extremely important. During our consultation with you, we’ll help you determine if the other party who caused the accident was negligent. If so, you may be entitled to receive compensatory damages, pain and suffering, lost wages, and to have your medical expenses and the cost of repairing your vehicle paid.
