Uptown, Chicago

Malman Law. Premier Personal Injury Attorneys

Injury Attorney Steven J. Malman

Experienced Personal Injury and Accident Attorney Serving Victims in the Uptown Community of Chicago

Uptown is…well, Uptown. Most of us are familiar with the urban attractions of Buena Park, Sheridan Park, Margate Park, and Little Vietnam. We must admit, though, that the Uptown Entertainment District is our favorite part of Uptown, where we imagine that we stroll alongside the ghosts of Al Capone and John Dillinger.  When it comes time to eat, however, Argyle Street has no serious competitors.

When we return to the office, a distressing reality awaits us – lives thrust into crisis by unexpected personal injuries. These injuries happen in many ways – truck accidents, work injuries, medical malpractice, and a myriad of other occasions for the human body to reveals it fragility. When one person’s misconduct injures another, however, it is the injustice of it all that angers us the most.

We Protect the Rights of the Injured

Here at Malman Law, we work day in and day out, as we have for nearly a quarter of a century, to restore justice to lives like yours. While we cannot undo the accident that turned your life upside down, we can seek fair compensation for all that you have suffered.  A personal injury claim typically far exceeds mere reimbursement for medical expenses – your claim might be worth more than you think.

Our Zero Fee Guarantee Means You Don’t Pay Unless You Win

As a personal injury victim, you have a claim for compensation. An abstract claim is useless, however, until we turn it into cash in your bank account. That is why we offer our Zero Fee Guarantee – you will owe us nothing legal fees, until and unless you receive compensation for your injuries. Even then, the amount of our fees will be scaled to how much you receive, so that you will still come out ahead.

What Our Clients Say

The Malman Law team is exceptional. Knows personal injury law, very responsive to my personal workers comp case, recovered money I thought I would never see. And it happened twice as fast as I thought it would. Thank you, Malman Law.

Types of Claims We Handle

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1) How common is medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice is far more common than any of us would like it to be. According to the American Medical Association, medical malpractice is one of the three leading causes of death in the United States. Considering the fact that many victims do not even realize that their malady was caused by malpractice, the actual figure could be much higher.

2) What are some of the most important facts about my case that my lawyer needs to know?

At your initial consultation, you should be prepared to tell your lawyer:

  • The date of the accident.
  • A description of the accident.
  • Whether you have been contacted by an insurance company.
  • Whether you have any pre-existing injuries.

Your lawyer will probably have other questions for you as well.

3) How do I secure compensation if the at-fault driver was uninsured?

Alternative sources of compensation include:

  • Your own uninsured motorist policy (part of your liability insurance, unless you rejected it in writing)
  • The defendant’s personal assets
  • The defendant’s employer (maybe), if he or she was on-duty at the time of the accident
  • The city, state, or federal government, if it was at fault.

4) Can my child file a lawsuit in his or her own name?

A minor under 18 may not file a lawsuit in Illinois. The age of your child at the time of the accident is irrelevant; what matters is the age at the time the lawsuit is filed. The court will normally appoint a parent to file a lawsuit on a child’s behalf
