An Aggressive Personal Injury Law Firm for the People of Chicago’s West Pullman Area

If you live or work in West Pullman  and you have suffered a personal injury, we are ready to take your side and fight until you receive the justice you deserve. Although we have seen the traffic carnage that is sometimes visible on thoroughfares such as 115th Street and Ashland Avenue, we know from years of experience that traffic accidents represent only a fraction of personal injury claims.

What turns a personal injury into a legal claim can be summed up in one word – fault. If the accident that injured you was someone else’s fault, Illinois personal injury law entitles you to financial compensation in ways that you might not expect. Did you know, for example, that it is not unusual to receive damages for “pain and suffering” that far exceed reimbursement for medical expenses?

The Malman Law Difference

Anyone who has passed the bar exam in Illinois is legally entitled to represent you in a personal injury claim. Many lawyers, however, operate a “jack of all trades” practice – after they finish negotiating a personal injury claim, for example, they may be off to represent a criminal defendant. Such is not the case with us. Personal injury law is all we do, and it is all we have been doing for the last 25 years.

Our Zero Fee Guarantee

When you win 95 percent of your cases (as we do!), a lot becomes possible that wasn’t possible before. Because of our confidence in eventual victory, we can afford to offer you our Zero Fee Guarantee – we either win your case, or you pay us nothing at all for our services. Since we don’t charge upfront fees, our bill will not come due until your money has already arrived.

A Word from a Client

“Two 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.” — Malman Law Client

Personal Injury Claims We Handle

We handle the following types of personal injury claims, among others:

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1) How will uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage protect me?

In Illinois, uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage will cover you if the at-fault driver was uninsured, if he was insured but his insurance is insufficient, or if the driver fled the scene of the accident and cannot be located.

2) How do personal injury claimants commonly damage their claims?

  • By giving out too much information to the insurance company (unlimited access to your medical records, for example).
  • By delaying medical treatment because you believe your injuries are minor.
  • By neglecting to collect contact details for eyewitnesses.
  • By accepting a quick but inadequate settlement offer.
  • By trying to handle your claim without an attorney.

3) Can I file a claim if my close relative was killed in an accident?

Under the Illinois Wrongful Death Act, the personal representative of the deceased victim’s estate (the executor) can file a wrongful death lawsuit. Damages are apportioned among next of kin. Workplace accidents are usually handled differently, however.

4) How much can I receive in “pain and suffering” damages?

How much you receive depends on the specific facts of your case, including:

  • The degree of your pain.
  • The expected duration of your pain.
  • How difficult it is to prove the degree of pain caused by your injury.

Pain and suffering damages sometimes amount to as much as five times the amount awarded for medical expenses.

You Probably Won’t Have to Go to Court

Only about five percent of our cases end up being resolved at trial. The other 95 percent are resolved through private settlement (although it is sometimes necessary to file a lawsuit to increase pressure on the defendant). Defendants, and particularly insurance companies, tend to be unwilling to meet us in court after they learn of our stellar trial record.
