Roseland’s Dedicated Personal Injury Lawyers, Serving the People of Chicago
Chicago’s Roseland district is home to many of our clients. Over the years we have represented injured victims from Fernwood, Lilydale, Princeton Park, Rosemoor, Sheldon Heights, West Roseland, West Chesterfield and even Chicago State University. Like all of our other clients, none of these people paid a dime in legal fees until they won their cases.
Our Zero Fee Guarantee
Here at Malman Law, we are just like anyone else – we don’t like wasting our money. No matter who you are, we’re pretty sure you’re no different. Because of this, and because we win 95 percent of our cases, we charge no upfront fees. If you are like 95 percent of our clients who receive compensation, your legal fees will be deducted from your compensation after it arrives.
In the unlikely event that you are among the five percent who do not recover compensation, your total legal bill will be precisely $0.00. Unlike, for example, an auto insurance company (which loses money when it pays your claim), we only win if you win too. And if you win big, we win too. That’s what puts us on the same side, and we like it that way.
Your Claim Might Be Worth More Than You Think
The human body is fragile – a car accident, a dog bite, medical malpractice, or even an intentional assault can all send you to the hospital. If your injury occurred because of the misconduct of someone else, you have a legal claim for damages under Illinois law. Even if the defendant lacks the financial resources to pay, in many cases an insurance company or an employer, can be compelled to pay. It is our job to make sure that happens, and to make sure you get 100 percent of what you’re entitled to.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1) Can I file a claim over a “road rage” incident or another criminal act?
Yes, you certainly can, even though most personal injury claims arise out of negligence. You might even qualify for punitive damages in addition to ordinary compensatory damages. Keep in mind, however, that few insurance policies cover punitive damages.
2) What are the chances I will be awarded punitive damages?
Fairly low, although it depends on the facts of your case. Illinois courts are reluctant to award punitive damages even when the accident was clearly the defendant’s fault. To win, you will need to offer solid evidence that the defendant’s conduct was outrageous. You might win punitive damages, for example, if a surgeon operated on you while intoxicated.
3) What information should I bring with me to my initial consultation with you?
You should be prepared to tell us:
- The date of the accident.
- A general description of the accident.
- Whether you have been contacted by an insurance company.
- Whether you have any pre-existing injuries that might be relevant to your claim.
3) How do I secure compensation if the at-fault driver was uninsured?
You will need to seek an alternative source of compensation, such as:
- the defendant’s personal assets;
- your own uninsured motorist coverage;
- the defendant’s employer, if he was on duty and acting within the scope of his duties at the time of the accident; or
- the manufacturer of a defective product (a defective automobile air bag, for example).
You Probably Won’t Have to Go to Court
Only about 5 percent of our clients’ claims are resolved in court. Although we can make no guarantees, it is overwhelmingly likely that your claim will never be litigated in court. Instead, we can negotiate a private settlement with the defendant. Insurance companies are particularly likely to settle – since they already know our reputation, they certainly don’t want to face us in court.
