It’s easy to get lost on the streets of West Town. It is perhaps almost as easy to suffer a sudden accident that could leave you flat on your back in a local hospital. It is then that an unpleasant reality competes with your pain for your attention – medical bills are mounting while you lose work time. If the accident that turned your life upside down was someone else’s fault, you have a personal injury claim.
It is true that Illinois personal injury law protects your right to full compensation when you are injured through someone else’s misconduct. Stand on this right and you have a claim. Turning a claim into cash, however, is the tricky part. At Malman Law, turning claims into cash is what we do for a living – to the tune of over $200 million recovered for our clients over 25 years of practice.
Filing a personal injury claim is not like filing a claim in small claims court. Rules of evidence and civil procedure are complex, formalistic, and confusing. Even negotiating an out-of-court settlement with an insurance company invokes this complexity, because no one is going to offer you a decent settlement unless they are convinced you could win in court.
Here at Malman Law, 95 is a very special number – 95 is the percentage of cases we win and, coincidentally, 95 is also the percentage of claims that we end up settling out of court. In all likelihood, you will never have to testify in court. We will work hard to obtain the quickest possible settlement for you – but not at the expense of full compensation.
“If anyone has a problem and is in need of help call Malman Law. At Malman Law you are not just a client, you are part of the family.” – Donyell G.
We handle just about any type of personal injury claim; following are but a few examples:
Because our Chicago accident lawyers win 95 percent of our cases, we can afford to offer our services to you risk-free. If we take your case, you will owe us nothing in up-front legal fees, and you will continue owing us nothing until and unless you actually receive a settlement or verdict. In the unlikely event that we cannot obtain compensation for you, you will owe us nothing in legal fees for the entire case.
Unless you are a lawyer, it is likely that you are not even sure whether you have a valid claim, or whether you can prove it even if you do. Take heart. If your claim arose in Greater Chicago, call Malman Law or fill out our online contact form to schedule a free, no-obligation evaluation where we can discuss your claim.
The profession of law is not like the profession of medicine. A lawyer straight out of law school can hang up a shingle and advertise as a “personal injury lawyer” with no internship, no residency, and no case experience. The personal injury attorneys at Malman Law, by contrast, have been doing our job for over two decades.
We have won hundreds of millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for over 20,000 clients. All told, this adds up to a legal batting average of .950 (a 95 percent victory rate) and quite a number of multimillion dollar verdicts. There isn’t much that can happen in your case that we haven’t seen many, many times before.
Probably not. You may be able to escape an arbitration clause if you were fraudulently induced to sign the agreement, but under normal circumstances you will be stuck with arbitration. Nevertheless, arbitration does offer certain advantages, such as simplicity.
“Negligence” means essentially carelessness, and it can be established in many ways, including evidence of:
Maybe, maybe not. Although courts usually uphold liability waivers, in some cases they don’t. The court might determine that the waiver was worded too broadly, for example, or that the company’s employee acted so outrageously that it would be a miscarriage of justice to uphold the liability waiver.
Yes. Contaminated food is subject to Illinois product liability law. Under many circumstances, you can sue anyone in the food chain of distribution, including the grocery store, and you can win without proving fault.
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
