Recently ranked in the top 50 places to live, Buffalo Grove is a small suburb of Chicago known for its beautiful parks, tree-lined streets and well-maintained homes. Buffalo Grove has a population of just over 40,000 and extends into both Lake and Cook Counties. Like other Chicago suburbs, there are many serious accidents, injuring hundreds of residents per year. If you were injured in a Buffalo Grove accident, you may be entitled to monetary compensation through a Buffalo Grove personal injury lawsuit.
At the personal injury law firm of Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, we help accident victims and their families obtain financial compensation after life-changing accidents. With our team on your side, you can rest assured that you, your case, and your family, are all in good hands.
As experienced Buffalo Grove personal injury attorneys, we have handled all types of cases. If you were involved in an accident that you believe was caused by another person, business or government entity, we can help you bring a claim against the responsible party. While we have successfully represented clients in a wide range of claims, some of the most common cases we see involve the following types of accidents.
Car accidents are one of the leading causes of accidental injury in Buffalo Grove. According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, more than 1,400 vehicles were involved in car accidents in Buffalo Grove in a single year. While some of these accidents were minor, hundreds of people were injured. Car accidents are also almost entirely preventable; if motorists paid attention to the road, drove with respect for others, and followed all posted traffic signs and signals. However, drivers often make mistakes, whether they are due to inexperience, negligence or aggressive driving.
Buffalo Grove sees significant truck traffic. In part, this is because more than 10 percent of the village’s land area is designated for industrial purposes. Large trucks, such as 18-wheelers and semi-trucks, can pose a genuine threat to motorists. In 2019, more than 4,119 people died in truck accidents across the Country. The overwhelming majority of these accident victims were drivers and passengers in other vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists. In the event of a Buffalo Grove truck accident, accident victims may be able to pursue a legal claim against both the truck driver, as well as their employer.
With ample park space and a growing network of bike lanes and paths, walking and biking are popular activities in Buffalo Grove. Unfortunately, motorists do not always take the necessary precautions when driving around pedestrians and cyclists. According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, the rate of pedestrian-involved car accidents went up more than ten percent from 2019 to 2020. And the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety reports that the rate of fatal bicycle accidents has tripled since 1975. When a driver causes a pedestrian or bicycle accident, they can be held liable for any resulting injuries.
Falls are the single leading cause of preventable injury in the United States, responsible for almost a quarter of all emergency room visits. Buffalo Grove offers shopping centers, stores, museums and numerous outdoor activities. Most businesses and private property owners proudly maintain their property, ensuring that it is safe for guests. However, that is not always the case. If a property owner fails to take the necessary steps to keep a location safe for guests, they may be liable through a Buffalo Grove premises liability lawsuit.
The vast majority of products we use and consume are safe. Unfortunately, sometimes a product suffers from a design defect or manufacturing defect. In other cases, a manufacturer fails to warn consumers about the known risks a product presents adequately. However, manufacturers and retailers are responsible for the safety of the products they create, market and sell, and those injured due to a dangerous or defective product may be entitled to compensation through a Buffalo Grove product liability lawsuit.
Over 104,000 workers were injured on the job in Illinois in 2019 alone. Most employers understand that their most valuable assets are their employees and are careful to provide safe workplaces for all workers. However, several of the major employers in Buffalo Grove operate in dangerous industries. If you were injured in a Buffalo Grove workplace accident, even if another’s negligence did not cause the accident, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. You may also be able to pursue a third-party personal injury claim against any other parties who were responsible for your injuries.
Buffalo Grove has more than half a dozen nursing homes. Instances of Buffalo Grove nursing home abuse and neglect are not unheard of. If you have a loved one in a Buffalo Grove nursing home and believe they may have experienced abuse or neglect, a personal injury lawyer can help you understand your loved one’s rights and what they can do to hold the facility accountable.
Accidents are almost always caused by another party’s negligence. Perhaps a driver was distracted and did not see a light turn red as they glanced down at their cell phone? Or maybe an employee got to work late and did not have a chance to clean the store before opening for business? Whatever the situation was that gave rise to your injuries, chances are the accident was preventable.
Most personal injury cases are under the umbrella of “negligence.” Legally speaking, a negligence claim involves a party’s breach of a duty they owed to you. To successfully bring a negligence claim against another party, you must be able to prove each of the following elements:
Proving negligence in some cases is easier than in others, and a dedicated Buffalo Grove personal injury lawyer can help you determine who was responsible for your injuries and what you can do to hold them accountable.
After an accident, your life is turned upside down. Whatever your daily routine was before the accident will be very different from what it will be afterward. You may not be able to work for weeks or months after an accident. You may not have the physical ability to enjoy the activities that you used to. And you are very likely facing significant medical bills stemming from your accident-related injuries.
At the Buffalo Grove personal injury law firm of Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, we do not think it is fair that these burdens rest with you. You did not cause the accident, and you should not be left on the hook for your accident-related expenses. By bringing a personal injury claim against the negligent party responsible for your injuries, you are not only putting your own family in a better financial position, but you are discouraging parties from engaging in the type of negligent conduct that caused your injuries.
If you successfully bring a Buffalo Grove personal injury lawsuit, you can recover monetary compensation for the damages you suffered. While every case is different, the most common types of damages in personal injury cases include compensation for the following:
You only get one opportunity to bring a lawsuit, and you should make sure that your lawyer seeks the total amount of damages you are entitled to. At Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, we have decades of experience working with injury victims, their families and their medical providers to identify the full extent of our clients’ damages, ensuring that they have the resources they need to move on with their life after the conclusion of the case.

I hurt my back at work in late 2008. My injury was so serious it required surgery. Before I knew what happen, my benefits were denied, I was out of work and my surgery was denied. I've seen Briskman & Briskman commercials for years - thank goodness for that - so I gave them a call.
