Our West Garfield Park clients come to us after suffering an auto accident in K-town or on S. Kildare Avenue, becoming a victim of medical malpractice at a local hospital, or for similar reasons. At Malman Law, our West Garfield Park personal injury attorneys fight for the rights of clients like you every day, and we absolutely will not allow anyone to take advantage of you.
We realize that lawyers suffer from the reputation of being expensive, with so much talk about “billable hours” and the like. At Malman Law, however, we don’t charge by the hour. In fact, our proven West Garfield Park personal injury attorneys will never charge you anything until and unless we win your claim. And “winning” means money in the bank for you – anything less, and our services are free.
Many clients who attempt to represent themselves, or who retain substandard lawyers, end up short-changed and don’t even know it. You claim might be worth far more than you realize. In addition to medical expense reimbursement, components of your claim might include:

Under Illinois contributory fault law, you can still recover some of your damages as long as the accident was not mostly your fault. An amount will be subtracted from your recovery that is equal to your percentage of fault. You will lose 25 percent of your damages, for example, if the accident was 25 percent your fault.

It is for this reason that you must seek medical attention immediately after an accident, even if you don’t believe you were injured.
Malpractice can take many different forms. Some of the most common forms include:
Compensatory damages are designed to compensate you for the wrong done to you – in other words, they are designed to put you in just as good a position as you would have been if the accident had never happened. Punitive damages are designed to punish the defendant for particularly wrongful behavior.
About 20 of our clients win out-of-court settlements for every 1 whose claim is taken to trial. Although our West Garfield Park personal injury attorneys cannot make any guarantees, our history indicates that you probably won’t have to go to court. There is a reason for this, of course. When we do go to court, we tend to win. Opposing parties know this – and they don’t want to risk going to trial against us.
2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
