Dedicated Oak Park Accident Lawyers

Knowledgeable Personal Injury Attorneys Serving Victims In Oak Park

Oak Park, Illinois seems like a whole other world when compared to its neighbor of Chicago. With more than 80 acres of land, Oak Park is a place many people enjoy because of its diversity and its vast differences from the Windy City. It’s a place where people enjoy riding their bicycles and simply go on with a quieter way of life.

Yet, every year, dozens of people are injured in Oak Park. If you or someone you love suffered a personal injury, you need the expertise and help of an Oak Park accident lawyer. Despite Oak Park’s picturesque way of life, dozens of car accidents occur in Oak Park. People out riding their bicycles on the Grand Illinois Trails get injured. People walking in the winter on city sidewalks and other public areas slip on ice or snow and suffer with debilitating injuries that change their entire life.

Lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and expensive medical bills are only the top of the iceberg for people who are hurt in Oak Park. Combine this with the stress involved in trying to get compensated for your injuries and get your medical bills paid.

Accidents and Negligence

Accidents happen each and every day. However, there are many accidents in Oak Park that are the result of someone else acting in a negligent manner. This means that if the other person had or hadn’t done something specific, you wouldn’t have been injured or your property wouldn’t have been damaged. It doesn’t matter if it’s a slip and fall, a car accident, or tripping on a broken city-maintained sidewalk. You may be eligible to file a lawsuit and be compensated for your injuries.

However, you don’t have an unlimited amount of time to file a lawsuit because of an accident. Each state has a time limit called a statute of limitations. In Illinois, you only have two years from the time of your accident to file your claim. If you’ve been in an accident in Oak Park, call Malman Law right away.

The Elements of Negligence

Negligence, like any cause of action, has elements. If you notice the following four factors in your case, call us right away to set up your free and confidential consultation. Remember, you only have a limited amount of time that a legal claim can be filed with the court.

  • A duty must be owed. For example, dog owners have a duty to keep their pets on a leash. The city has a duty to keep public city-owned sidewalks in good repair. Drivers have a legal duty to other drivers to drive the speed limit.
  • That duty must be breached by another party. If someone had their dog off of a leash, that would be a breach of duty. If there was a sidewalk with a deep hole in it, that may be a breach of duty. Drivers who speed are breaching their legal duty.
  • There must be an actual injury. Breach of duty isn’t enough. A dog that doesn’t bite anyone while off of its leash may be inconvenient, but there’s no actual injury. An actual injury in that instance would be the dog biting you or attacking your pet. A broken city sidewalk must result in someone breaking an ankle or some other injury. A speeding driver must be the cause of a wreck that causes personal injury or a property damage.
  • The accident must be the actual cause of the injuries. This is often referred to as the ‘but-for’ test. “But-for the defendant’s dog being off of its leash, it would not have charged the plaintiff nor would it have bit him on the leg.”

You may be eligible for lost wages, pain and suffering, and other compensation.

2 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
