Skokie Personal Injury

Malman Law. Premier Personal Injury Attorneys

Injury Attorney Steven J. Malman

Effective Skokie Personal Injury Attorneys

Serving clients from all over the greater Chicago area including Lincolnwood, Morton Grove and the surrounding communities.

Our clients have two things in common – a personal injury, and an injustice that needs to be addressed. At Malman Law, our Skokie personal injury attorneys don’t allow injustice to go unaddressed.

Let Us Handle Your Claim While You Concentrate on Recovery

It can be overwhelming to deal with a serious injury and a personal injury claim at the same time.  Insurance companies know this, and they will not hesitate to take advantage of your infirmity to the extent that the law allows them to. Let us take over the reins. You concentrate on physical recovery and we will concentrate on your financial recovery.

All major decisions are yours, of course, but our proven Skokie personal injury attorneys will pull out all the stops to make the experience as stress-free as possible for you, including negotiating your claim for you. Insurance adjusters are professional negotiators who “collect the scalps” of injured victims who they have smooth-talked into accepting substandard recovery amounts. They’re not going to smooth-talk us.

If Your Injuries Are Serious, It May be Time to Call in the Professionals

At Malman Law, we have been representing injured victims for nearly 25 years now.

In that time we have:

  • obtained recoveries for over 15,000 clients – nearly the entire population of Skokie,
  • won 95 percent of our cases,
  • settled over 95 percent of our successful cases out of court,
  • recovered over $200,000,000 for our clients (and counting!), and
  • won multi-million dollar recoveries for many clients.

Types of Claims We Handle

Following is an incomplete list of the types of personal injury claims our winning Chicago accident and injury lawyers frequently handle:

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Do I have to prove my claim 'beyond a reasonable doubt'?

No. “Beyond a reasonable doubt” is the standard of proof for a criminal prosecution, not a civil claim. In most cases, the standard for a civil claim is “preponderance of evidence” which means something like “more likely than not.” In other words, you have to prove every element of your claim is more than 50 percent likely to be true.

What kind of treatment qualifies as 'nursing home abuse'?

Nursing home abuse can take many forms – it is not limited to physical abuse. The most common forms are:

  • Physical abuse

  • Emotional abuse

  • Sexual abuse

  • Financial abuse

  • Neglect

Nursing home abuse is considered just as much of a civil offense as an accident caused by negligence is, and punitive damages are sometimes justified.

What do I have to prove to win a products liability claim?

To win a products liability claim based on a manufacturing or design defect, you just have to prove:

  • the existence of a design or manufacturing defect;

  • the defect rendered the product unreasonably dangerous;

  • the defect already existed when it left the defendant’s control; and

  • the defect caused your injury.

To win a claim based on failure to adequately warn, you must prove that the manufacturer failed to disclose the product’s unreasonably dangerous condition or failed to instruct on the proper use of the product (unless it is obvious).

What are my possible legal options arising out of a traumatic brain injury?

There are three main options, depending on the facts of your case:

  • File an ordinary personal injury claim (against a negligent driver, for example)

  • File a medical malpractice lawsuit, if medical negligence was involved, and/or

  • File a product liability claim, if you were injured by a defective product (an airbag that did not deploy, for example.

Our Zero Fee Guarantee – We Don’t Win Unless You Do Too

You pay nothing upfront, and you will never owe us anything until we bring home a recovery for you – and that means money in the bank.
