Portage Park

Malman Law. Premier Personal Injury Attorneys

Injury Attorney Steven J. Malman

Qualified Chicago Personal Injury Attorneys Serving the Portage Park Area

Whether shopping on Six Corners, enjoying the green spaces in Chopin Park, or watching underground films at the Portage Theater, Portage Park has plenty to offer both resident and visitor alike. Apart from these attractions, Portage Park’s picturesque bungalows and stunning church architecture endow the neighborhood with a quiet residential charm that gets lost in Chicago’s more commercial districts.

Charm can blind you, however, to the potential hazards that to some extent stalk all of us, especially those of us who live in an urban landscape. When an accident occurs, whether it be a car crash, a botched surgical procedure, or even the slow horror of nursing home neglect, the consequences you face are more than just physical – they are financial as well.

Your Rights Are Useless Unless You Enforce Them

Here at Malman Law, we are professional advocates who represent only one type of client – your kind, if you were injured through the misconduct of someone else. After 25 years and 20,000 clients, we have learned how to deal with greedy insurance companies and byzantine rules of evidence and civil procedure. It is our job, quite simply, to fight for your rights.

Our Zero Fee Guarantee

You might imagine that only a wealthy person could afford to retain Chicago’s top personal injury law firm. If so, you are in for a pleasant surprise – we will charge you nothing in up-front fees. You only pay after the case is over and the money is in the bank. If we don’t win for you, you simply don’t pay us legal fees. Ever. We can afford to do this because we win 95 percent of our cases.

A Word from One of Our Clients

“If anyone has a problem and is in need of help call Malman Law. At Malman Law you are not just a client, you are part of the family.” – Donyell G.

Types of Cases We Handle

We handle just about any type of personal injury claim, including:

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1) What are some of the types of damages I can receive for a wrongful death claim?

Following are some typical examples:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • The victim’s medical expenses
  • Loss of financial support
  • Emotional suffering by survivors

Damages go exclusively to the surviving spouse, the next of kin, and the victim’s probate estate.

2) What is “comparative fault?”

Comparative fault is a way of calculating damages when more than one party was at fault. No one who was at least 50 percent fault for an accident may recover damages. If the accident was less than 50 percent your fault, your damages will be reduced in proportion to your percentage of fault.

On what basis might an insurance company deny or reduce my claim for medical bills?

An insurance company might assert that:

  • Your claim is based on a pre-existing injury;
  • Your treatment was unnecessary or excessive; or
  • Your treatment was not approved by your treating physician.

There are many other potential bases for the denial of a claim.

3) Should I issue a verbal or written statement to the insurance company?

Not without the approval of your lawyer. Insurance companies have many ways to trick you. It might, for example, ask the exact time of the accident and then use your answer to assert that you were checking the time on your phone rather than watching the road.

Make it Happen

We don’t need gimmicks to recommend us, because the numbers do a fine job of that all by themselves. Numbers like $200,000,000 in verdicts and settlements brought home by our clients over the years, including many multimillion dollar resolutions. We accomplish this by crafting individualized strategies that are tailor-made for the unique facts of each individual case. No two cases are alike.

We will assign your case to a team of injury attorneys with specialized expertise – a nursing home abuse lawyer, for example, if that is the nature of your claim. We know you need money fast, and right from the start, we will be seeking the quickest possible settlement, as long as it results in full compensation for you. If a lawsuit is required, however, our offices are located only two blocks from the courthouse.

Contact Us Today

We realize that you may be unsure whether you have a valid claim, and that is something we need to talk about. If your claim arose in Greater Chicago, call Malman Law or fill out our online contact form to schedule a free, no-obligation evaluation of your case.
