Experienced South Deering Personal Injury Attorneys
South Deering, Chicago is the home of one of our favorite places to dine, Calumet Fisheries. When duty calls, however, it is time to get to work. Our South Deering clients come from all local neighborhoods including Irondale, Jeffrey Manor, Vet’s Park, and Slag Valley. What they all have in common is a desire for justice.
Justice is what we do here at Malman Law. When a personal injury puts you in the hospital, you don’t have to just lie there and take it – at least not if the accident that injured you was caused by the misconduct of someone else. Illinois personal injury law entitles you to compensation, and it might be more than you think. Many of our clients have won multi-million dollar awards.
Your Pain and Suffering Are Worth Something Too
As a personal injury victim, you are normally entitled to to recover more than the amount necessary to pay off your medical bills. In addition to lost earnings and incidental expenses, you may also be eligible to recover for pain and suffering (except for workers’ compensation claims). In fact, intangible damages could amount to more than half of your claim value.
Most of Our Clients Settle out of Court
If you are like most personal injury victims, you do not relish the prospect of appearing in court and perhaps even being subject to cross-examination over your claim. Although we cannot guarantee anything, over 90 percent of our clients never have to go to court. The most common resolution of a claim asserted by one of our clients is an out-of-court settlement.
We Try to Settle but We Are Ready to Fight
With our successful trial record, not all that many defendants are willing to face us in court.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Who do I claim against if I am injured by a defective product such as a prescription drug?
Under the Illinois Product Liability Act, you can file a claim against anyone in the chain of distribution of the product, including the manufacturer, the wholesaler, and the retailer. If you meet the requirements of strict product liability, you do not even have to prove that the defendant was negligent to win your claim.
What are some keys to negotiating a personal injury settlement?
Following are some time-tested tips:
- Understand how the insurance claims process works
- Know how much your claim is worth
- Keep all medical records and medical bills
- Strictly follow your doctor’s instructions
- Let your attorney do the negotiating or you
What are some of the warning signs of nursing home abuse?
Here are some telltale warning signs:
- Unexplained weight loss
- Falls or unexplained injuries
- Unexplained changes in behavior
- Poor hygiene
Not all of these signs are “smoking guns” that prove abuse – but they should put you on notice to investigate the situation further.
What information should I gather at the scene of an auto accident?
Try to collect the following, either immediately or as soon as you can afterwards:
- The date, time and location
- The injuries you suffered
- Insurance and contact information from the other driver
- The names and contact details of all parties involved, including witnesses
- A description of each vehicle, including license plate information
- Photographs of the scene of the accident
Our Zero Fee Guarantee Puts Us Both on the Same Side
Malman Law’s Zero Fee Guarantee works like this:
- You pay us nothing in upfront fees
- If we fail to win compensation for you, your total bill from us will be zero
- If you do win compensation, our bill will be calculated as a percentage of the amount you win
That means if we lose, we lose together; and if we win, we win together. And we don’t like to lose.
