An unexpected injury can suddenly disrupt almost every aspect of your life. When a preventable injury results from another’s negligence, you can obtain compensation for your injuries.
At the law firm of Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, we help victims of serious accidents. Our Wheeling personal injury attorneys are committed to our clients and put our vast knowledge, resources and skills into every case we handle. Whether you were injured in a Wheeling car accident or slip and fall, or you were hurt due to a doctor’s negligence, we can help.

At the Wheeling personal injury law firm of Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, our dedicated team of personal injury attorneys represents individuals injured in a wide range of accidents. While we handle almost every type of injury claim you can think of, most of our clients’ injuries involve one of the following types of accidents.
Although Wheeling has a much lower population density than many surrounding areas, as a suburb of Chicago, Wheeling sees a fair amount of traffic. Not surprisingly, car, truck, and motorcycle accidents are a leading cause of preventable injury and death. Drivers have a legal duty to drive safely, and when they do not, they put everyone on the road at risk. Regardless of the type of accident that caused your injuries, Briskman Briskman & Greenberg can investigate the accident, effectively prepare and file a claim on your behalf and negotiate with the insurance company to help you secure the compensation you need to move on with your life.
Doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals owe all patients a duty to provide reasonable, well-thought-out medical care. While no one can guarantee a specific outcome, when a medical provider’s negligence causes harm to a patient, the patient can pursue a Wheeling medical malpractice lawsuit against the provider. If you have suffered due to negligent medical care, our attorneys can help you understand your rights and what you can do to hold at-fault parties accountable.
Anyone who has suffered injuries in a Wheeling slip and fall knows just how serious these accidents can be. While many incorrectly assume that falls only impact older people, the reality is that falls affect all age groups. Businesses, homeowners and even government entities must ensure that their property is safe for those who visit. If you were hurt due to an unmarked hazard or another dangerous condition of another’s property, the Wheeling premises liability attorneys at Briskman Briskman & Greenberg can help.
Dangerous and defective products pose a serious hazard to consumers. Manufacturers must take the necessary steps to ensure that their products are well-designed and safe for their intended uses. Of course, some products are inherently dangerous. Still, manufacturers are responsible for warning customers about the product’s proper use and providing detailed instructions to avoid injury. Under Illinois product liability laws, strict liability applies in many situations. Thus, injured parties may not even need to show that the manufacturer was negligent. If you have been injured by a dangerous or defective product, the Wheeling product liability lawyers at our firm can work with you to get you the compensation you deserve.
No worker should even be asked to jeopardize their own personal safety for the benefit of their employer. Often, employers fail to follow state and federal rules and regulations, putting employees at risk. Generally, anyone injured in a Wheeling workplace accident can pursue a claim for workers’ compensation. In some cases, it may be possible to pursue a third-party personal injury claim against non-employers who caused or contributed to the worker’s injuries. If you were injured on the job, the Wheeling workplace injury lawyers at Briskman Briskman & Greenberg are here for you. Our experienced team of attorneys commands an in-depth knowledge of the Illinois workers’ compensation and personal injury laws, which we use to ensure our clients are fairly compensated for what they have been through.
Selecting a nursing home for an aging loved one is not an easy decision. No matter how much research you do, you cannot know how the facility is run when you are not there. While most Wheeling nursing homes provide acceptable care to residents, that is unfortunately not always the case. To cut down overhead costs, many nursing homes run barebones operations. Thus, nursing home employees are often overworked, undertrained and underpaid. This leaves them unable to care for and supervise residents properly. If you have a loved one who suffered from nursing home abuse, either at the hands of staff members or a fellow resident, you may have a claim against the facility. Our nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys can help you understand your rights and what you can do to hold negligent or abusive staff members or management accountable.
Accidents can happen anytime, anywhere, to anyone. There is no telling when another person’s negligence or carelessness is going to cause an accident. And when it does, you may suddenly find yourself at the hospital, looking at a long road to recovery.
The types of injuries an accident can cause are almost endless. However, a few of the most common types of injuries Wheeling personal injury victims face include:
These cover just a small portion of the types of injuries you may have suffered. Regardless of the nature or extent of your injuries, the dedicated Wheeling personal injury lawyers at Briskman Briskman & Greenberg can help you pursue a claim against those responsible for your injuries.
While the immediate concern after an accident is overcoming your physical injuries, that is not the end of your journey. An accident can set you back in many ways. You may have missed work while you were recovering. You may suffer from lingering pain for months, years, or even the rest of your life. You may not be able to do the things you used to love. And then there are the accident-related medical expenses, which can easily reach into the tens of thousands of dollars, if not more.
Bringing a personal injury lawsuit can help you defray these costs, so you do not end up paying for someone else’s mistake. Illinois personal injury law allows accident victims to recover compensatory damages for their economic and non-economic losses. These include:
In some cases, you may also be able to pursue a claim for punitive damages. Unlike compensatory damages, punitive damages punish a party for their especially bad conduct. However, punitive damages are rarely awarded. Specifically, courts will only consider punitive damages when the defendant’s conduct was “willful or wanton,” outrageous, or in situations where the defendant acted intentionally to cause you harm.

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.
