Deciding where to eat dinner is easy compared to the trauma you will face if you become the victim of a personal injury. It is the financial aspect of this multidimensional trauma that you are likely to overlook until it is thrust upon you by circumstance – medical bills accumulate while you run out of sick days. This state of affairs is absolutely unfair if the accident was someone else’s fault.
Illinois personal injury law protects your right to full compensation when you are injured by someone else’s misconduct. “Full compensation” generally means a lot more than simple reimbursement of your medical expenses, however – several times more, in fact, if you know how to work the system. At Malman Law, “working the system” to ensure justice for people like you is what we do all day, every day.
To get a bit more specific, ensuring justice is what we have done for 20,000 personal injury victims over 25 years of practice. In personal injury law, “justice” means money, and in terms of money, we have obtained over $200,000,000 for our clients – that’s about $10 million a year, or over $25,000 every single day. As professionals, this level of success is simply routine for us.

Although our accident and injury attorneys can handle just about any type of personal injury claim, most of our cases fall within the following categories:
Ninety-five is a magic number here at Malman Law, because it represents the percentage of cases that we win. Because we are so confident of victory, we can afford to offer what we would never dare to offer otherwise – free legal fees until and unless we win your case. Feel free to get the process started with us even with empty pockets, because we operate on a “no win, no pay” system for legal fee.
The number 95 means something else to us too – it is the percentage of our cases that are ultimately resolved out of court. We understand that you would probably rather not testify, and that you need money fast. Right from the start, our personal injury attorneys will be aiming for a quick but full settlement. Nevertheless, we are “ready to rumble” in court if the opposing party insists on being stubborn.
You must prove four elements to win:
Normally, you must prove each element by a “preponderance of evidence,” which means roughly “more likely than not.” This is a much more lenient standard of proof than the “beyond a reasonable doubt” standard applied in criminal cases.
An Illinois jury is entitled to award any amount that is just and reasonable. Some of the most common types of damages are:
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
