Personal Injury and Workers' Compensation Claims

Sometimes, a personal injury case is not simply a personal injury case. From time to time, other avenues of compensation open up as well. When a personal injury is the result of an accident in the workplace, there may be a personal injury claim and a workers’ compensation claim. Such a situation often arises when a person is in a car accident while on the job. Likewise, construction accident cases often involve both workers’ compensation claims and personal injury claims against a negligent third party. Almost all employers (99.7 percent) are covered under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation system. Common types of workers’ compensation accidents include repetitive stress, vehicle accidents, equipment mishaps, construction accidents, and neck and back injuries.

What can You Expect From a Personal Injury case?

While every claim is unique, the personal injury case process generally follows a similar set of steps, beginning with your first meeting with an attorney and ending in settlement or trial.

Having the right attorney can be the difference between winning and losing your case, so it is important to ask lots of questions and carefully evaluate the firm you hire. The right attorney will be able to investigate your case and handle insurance companies and paperwork while you focus on getting better. A good attorney will guide you toward the strategy that will produce the most compensation, but the choice on how to proceed is always yours. Therefore, it is critical that you trust your attorney.

Vigilant Advocates for Car Accident Victims

Most car accidents are entirely avoidable. If drivers followed traffic laws and used sound judgment, accidents would not happen. In our experience, the most common causes of Illinois traffic accidents are:

Distracted Driving

Studies have shown that between 25 and 50 percent of all traffic accidents involve some level of distraction. Most often, cell phones are responsible, as many drivers continue to talk and text while driving despite the state’s ban on using handheld devices while driving. Other distractions may include talking to passengers, eating, grooming, changing the radio station or daydreaming.

Drowsy Driving

Perhaps in response to the escalating responsibilities many have taken on in recent years, the instances of drowsy driving across Illinois have steadily increased. Motorists who get behind the wheel while fatigued are making a conscious decision to drive in a compromised condition and should be held accountable when their negligence results in another’s injury.

Drunk Driving

Anyone who has a driver’s license knows that driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is extremely dangerous – and illegal. Drunk and drugged driving continue to be a major cause of traffic accidents in Illinois. Each year, over 300 fatal Illinois drunk driving accidents occur, and hundreds of others that cause serious injury.

Aggressive Driving

Speeding, running stop signs and frequently changing lanes are all types of aggressive driving. Aggressive drivers often think that they are better drivers than everyone else on the road. Of course, that simply is not the case. By engaging in aggressive driving behavior, a motorist puts everyone on the road at risk.

Car Accidents in Illinois

Nobody ever thinks that a car accident could happen to them. Each year, thousands of unsuspecting motorists find themselves in an accident—often due to no fault of their own.

According to the most recently available data from the Illinois Department of Transportation, over 310,000 Illinois car accidents occur every year. This is truly a shocking number for a state with fewer than 9 million drivers and 13 million people. This means that almost 2.5 out of every 100 people in Illinois are involved in a car accident each year.

Some accidents are minor, such as fender-benders and certain low-speed collisions. However, in about one in five Illinois car accidents, at least one person is seriously injured. For example, in 2019, more than 63,000 people across Illinois were hurt in car accidents.

Incapacitating Injuries from Car Accidents

Car Accidents and Duty of care

Illinois motorists have a duty to always drive in a safe and responsible manner. Those who are injured as a result of another driver’s negligence can pursue a claim for compensation against that driver. Often, these claims are defended by the insurance company that holds the at-fault driver’s policy. At Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, we routinely handle cases against the nation’s largest insurance companies. With over 30 years of experience handling Illinois car accident cases, we can confidently help you navigate this complicated process, vigilantly advocating on your behalf at every step of the way.

Additional Types of Motor Vehicle Accidents

Truck Accidents

Truck accidents are unique from other types of motor vehicle collisions in a few important ways. First, truck accidents are much more likely to result in severe or fatal injuries. Given their size, this should come as no surprise. According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, there are over 22,000 Illinois truck accidents per year. These accidents result in more than 2,200 injuries and 100 fatalities. Fewer than 200 of those hurt in a truck accident were truck drivers; the rest were other drivers, passengers, pedestrians and cyclists.

Truck accidents also differ from other types of collisions in what causes them. The nature of the trucking industry incentivizes drivers to stay on the road for as long as possible. Thus, one of the leading causes of Illinois truck accidents is fatigued driving.

Truck Accident Lawyers

Truck Accidents

Driver fatigue is not a new concern when it comes to truck drivers. The federal government imposed strict rest requirements that require truckers to pull over and take rest breaks every few hours. Additionally, they must take a certain amount of time between longer trips to ensure they are fully rested. However, trucking companies pay drivers by the mile and impose strict timelines that must be met. Thus, truck drivers (and even trucking companies) have been known to fudge rest log entries to make it look like drivers complied with the law when, in fact, they did not.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles are common across Illinois for many months out of the year. While motorcycles offer a great way to get around, they also present increased risks for riders. Some of these risks, such as the lack of protection offered by the bike, relate to the motorcycle itself. However, the most serious hazards facing motorcyclists come from other drivers.

Motorists have historically had a hard time safely driving around motorcyclists. Drivers have a harder time noticing motorcycles on the road and, even when they see a motorcycle, they may have difficulties assessing its speed. This frequently leads to a driver attempting a turn in front of a motorcyclist without enough time to do so. Other common types of Illinois motorcycle accidents include:

  • > Merging into a motorcyclist
  • > Rear-end accidents
  • > Failure to yield the right of way
  • > Left-turn accidents
  • > Road hazards
Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycle Accident Compensation

Motorcyclists injured in an accident face an uphill battle when bringing a claim for compensation due to the unfair societal stigma that all motorcyclists are aggressive drivers. A recent study found that 75 percent of all motorcycle accidents involve more than one vehicle—a figure comparable to the rate of single-vehicle car accidents. Further, two-thirds of multi-vehicle motorcycle accidents involve another driver violating the motorcyclist’s right of way.

Many continue to believe that motorcyclists are at fault for an accident when the evidence supports the opposite conclusion. This is where the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney can come into play. By disproving this false narrative, Briskman Briskman & Greenberg has successfully represented many motorcycle accident victims, helping them obtain fair compensation for their injuries.

Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents

The last thing anyone thinks about when going out for a stroll or a casual bike ride is getting into a life-changing accident. However, each year thousands of people are seriously injured or killed in Illinois pedestrian accidents and bicycle accidents. In 2020, there have been over 114 pedestrian deaths and 21 bicyclist deaths on Illinois roads. Pedestrian-related accidents accounted for 1.4 percent of all car accidents, while bicycle-involved accidents resulted in less than one percent of all car accidents. At Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, we proudly represent pedestrians, bicyclists and their families in cases against those responsible for their injures. Our skilled attorneys are prepared to negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf or take your case to trial if the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement offer.

Injuries Caused by Professional, Premises or Product Liability

Medical Malpractice

When you go to the doctor, you shouldn’t worry about your condition getting worse due to a medical professional’s negligence. Yet, preventable medical errors are a leading cause of injury and death in the United States. While the exact number of medical errors is hard to assess, given that most errors are self-reported, recent studies estimate that upwards of 250,000 people die each year due to preventable medical errors. Hundreds of thousands of others suffer serious and lifelong injures due to medical negligence.

Common types of medical errors include:

  • > Misdiagnoses and delayed diagnoses
  • > Surgical errors
  • > Birth injuries
  • > Prescription errors
  • > Nursing home neglect
  • > Inadequate follow-up treatment
  • > Premature discharge
Medical Malpractice Attorney

Medical Malpractice Laws

Doctors, nurses, dentists, pharmacists and other medical professionals have a legal duty to provide patients with an acceptable level of care. While the extent of a medical professional’s duty to a patient depends on the circumstances, the care provided must align with the prevailing professional standards. When a doctor provides care that falls below this level, they can be held liable through an Illinois medical malpractice lawsuit.

Medical malpractice lawsuits are some of the most complex personal injury cases for a few reasons. First, these cases involve a complex intersection of law and medicine. Most medical negligence cases present issues that are beyond the scope of a common juror’s understanding. These cases typically require a patient to give testimony from an expert witness who can help explain why the provider was negligent and how their negligence led to the patient’s injuries.

Adding to the complications of medical malpractice claims are the precise procedural requirements these claims must follow. For example, before you file a claim, you must present an “affidavit of merit” from a qualified healthcare professional. This affidavit must indicate that your claim has merit in the expert’s opinion.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Falls are the leading cause of both preventable injuries and accidental deaths across the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 39,000 people die each year due to a fall, and over three million people are treated in emergency rooms each year for fall-related injuries.

When it comes to fall-related injuries, Illinois is no exception. On average, there are more than 100,000 emergency room visits each year due to fall-related injuries among patients 65 and older. More than 11,000 of these fall victims are admitted to the hospital, and nearly 850 will not survive their injuries.

Falls are one of the leading causes of emergency room visits in Illinois and across the country. Falls can occur anywhere, including in the hardware store, at the library, or on the job. Under Illinois premises liability law, property owners owe a duty to those whom they invite onto their land.

Caution Signs in Slip and Fall Accident

Fall Accidents and Reasonable Care

Falls are not limited to older adults, however. Everyone faces the risk of a fall anytime they visit the store, cross the parking lot or head in to work. Premises liability refers to the area of law governing a landowner’s obligations to their guests. Generally, property owners owe guests a duty to ensure a reasonably safe location. As long as a person is legally on the property (i.e., not a trespasser), a landowner owes them a duty of care. While the extent of the duty a landowner owes to a guest will vary depending on the circumstances, generally, the law requires a landowner to exercise “reasonable care under the circumstances.”

What constitutes “reasonable care” will depend on the situation. For example, for a grocery store, it may mean conducting routine inspections of all aisles to ensure they are free from spilled liquids or other hazards. For a mechanic’s shop, it may mean ensuring that all dangerous areas are adequately marked, preventing customers from entering. And for an apartment complex, it means promptly addressing tenant complaints about dangerous conditions, such as defective stairs, uneven pavement or any other hazard. When a property owner fails to provide a safe place for invited guests, they can be held liable through an Illinois premises liability lawsuit.

Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

More than 1.3 million people in the United States live in nursing homes and other long-term care options. These facilities are charged with providing a safe place for residents as well as ensuring their wellbeing. With an average cost of more than $100,000 per year, one would expect that nursing homes could afford to meet a resident’s basic needs.

However, 90 percent of nursing homes are understaffed, and in some cases, the ratio of staff to residents can get as low as 1 to 30. The result is that five million older Americans report experiencing elder abuse each year, and more than one in three nursing home residents report witnessing abuse or neglect. While the state and federal governments do their part to hold nursing homes accountable, these efforts do little to help families affected by nursing home abuse and neglect.

At Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, our team of nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers work closely with residents and families, helping them recover financial compensation for the wrongs committed against their loved ones.

Nursing Home Abuse

Dangerous Products

When you buy a product, you assume that it is safe for its intended use. However, manufacturers are under tremendous pressure to release their products to market and, too often, cut corners. When manufacturers cut corners, consumers are put at risk.

Manufacturers and others in a product’s distribution chain have a legal duty to consumers and others who may encounter their product. For example, a product must be free of design and manufacturing defects and should include warnings describing any unavoidable hazards the product presents. When a manufacturer fails to live up to its obligations, it may be strictly liable for resulting injuries.

Dangerous Products

Dangerous Products — Strict Liability

When a manufacturer fails to live up to its obligations, it may be strictly liable for resulting injuries. In most cases, Illinois law allows injury victims to hold manufacturers strictly liable for injuries caused by a product. This means that there is no requirement that you prove the manufacturer was negligent. However, you still must show that the product caused your injuries. In some cases, such as a defective chainsaw or power tool, this may be straightforward. However, manufacturers have experienced lawyers specifically trained to defend against these cases.

Even when strict liability applies, product liability cases are exceptionally complex and require an attorney with hands-on experience litigating these claims. At Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, our dedicated team of product liability lawyers works with a team of nationwide experts to help prove our clients’ cases. Over the last 35 years, we have successfully represented countless clients in cases involving dangerous and defective products.

Workplace Accidents

Workers' Compensation and Personal Injury Claims

Nobody gets up and heads to work, thinking that they will suffer a serious on-the-job injury. Yet, each year, nearly 105,000 employees are injured and over 150 killed in Illinois workplace accidents. Over 55 percent of Illinois work accidents result in an employee being limited in their ability to work, either by missing one or more days of work or requiring a transfer or reassignment. Most of these accidents are preventable. 

When you go to work, you trust that your employer is doing everything they can to provide a safe workplace. And most employers do. However, sometimes an employer overlooks a crucial safety point. Other times, a third party unrelated to your employer causes an accident. Whether an accident is caused by another motorist, a contractor, or a building or job site owner, injured workers have options. 

Workers who suffer injuries related to their employment can pursue a claim for compensation through either a workers’ compensation claim or a personal injury claim, depending on the circumstances. While there is some overlap between these two types of cases, they are very different. 

Workers’ compensation in a no-fault system allowing injured employees to obtain medical benefits and income benefits due to a work-related accident. A personal injury case, on the other hand, requires an injured worker to prove someone else other than their employer was responsible for their injuries. However, personal injury cases typically allow for an accident victim to recover more significant damages. 

The question is whether a workers’ compensation claim or a personal injury claim is best for your particular situation. At Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, our dedicated team of personal injury and workers’ compensation lawyers represents injured workers and grieving families in all types of Illinois work injury cases. 


Of course, nothing can bring back a loved one who was lost in a Chicago car accident or workplace accident; however, a wrongful death claim can help families cope with the financial aspect of their loss.

Common Causes of Workplace Accidents

Workplace accidents are a significant cause of injury and illness in Illinois, especially in and around the Chicago metropolitan area. When discussing workplace accidents, certain types of incidents come to mind like a manufacturing employee being injured by a malfunctioning piece of equipment; however, employees in many industries face unique hazards associated with their job. Common causes of workplace accidents include:

Third-Party Liability Claims

Sometimes, an injured employee may be able to bring a third-party liability claim. These claims are named third-party claims because they are brought against a non-employer who was responsible for, or contributed to, the employee’s injury. Non-economic damages are available in Illinois third-party liability claims. For example, an injured worker who successfully brings a third-party liability claim against a non-employer may recover compensation for the following:

Pain and Suffering

These damages compensate injury victims for the emotional and physical pain caused by an accident, including emotional trauma, new mental health diagnoses, or any other change to a person’s emotional wellbeing. In some cases, damages for future pain and suffering are also available.

Loss of Normal Life

Workplace accidents that result in severe injury routinely impact a person’s ability to carry on with the life they once knew. For example, an injury victim may not be able to partake in the hobbies they once enjoyed or may not be capable of deriving joy from what used to be their favorite activities.

Disability and Disfigurement

Many on-the-job accidents cause permanent changes to a person’s body. This may be the result of burns, scars, broken bones, amputations or skin grafts. Naturally, these changes can serve as a constant reminder of the accident and negatively impact a person’s life.

Recovering After a Workplace Accident

Workplace accidents can raise various complex and difficult issues

Chief among these issues is the availability of a third-party claim against a non-employer. At Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, our dedicated team of Illinois personal injury lawyers is exclusively dedicated to helping injury victims recover full and fair compensation for their injuries. From the moment you allow us to work on your case, we will unceasingly investigate and litigate your claim to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

Dog Bites

More than 50 million households own dogs in the United States

While most dogs are friendly companions that will live their whole life without harming a human, that is not always the case. According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 1,000 people are bitten by dogs each day, with 800,000 of these attacks resulting in an emergency room visit. Any dog can attack without notice, however, the most dangerous breeds of dogs are:

• Pitbull Terriers
• Rottweilers
• German Shepherds
• American Bulldogs
• Mastiffs

Illinois dog bite infographic

The most common injuries after a dog bite include cuts and lacerations, bruising, torn ligaments, broken bones or fractures and nerve damage.

Injuries from Dog Bites

Anyone who is bitten by a dog also faces the risk of infection. The two most common types of infections caused by dog bites are rabies and Capnocytophaga. Rabies is a virus that is spread through the saliva of infected animals. Once the symptoms of rabies show up, the disease is often fatal. Capnocytophaga is another disease spread through the saliva of cats and dogs. Most people with healthy immune systems will not contract Capnocytophaga if bitten; however, if you suffer from a weakened immune system or are taking certain medication, you may be at a greater risk.

Under Illinois law, dog owners are strictly liable for any injuries caused by their animals. This means that if you have been bit or attacked by a dog, you do not need to prove that the animal’s owner was negligent. Instead, you only need to prove that you were in a place you were legally entitled to be and did not provoke the animal.

In most cases, an animal’s homeowner’s insurance will cover damages stemming from a dog bite. Illinois ranks near the top of the list of dog bite claims, with more than 732 claims settled in 2020 alone. The average value of these claims was over $48,000.

Determining Fault in a Personal Injury Case

Proving that the other party was at fault

One of the most important aspects of any personal injury lawsuit is proving that the other party was at fault. While some accidents are the fault of just one party, that is not always the case. If you were hurt in an accident, you should expect that the other party or their insurance company will claim that you shared responsibility.

Comparative Negligence in Illinois

When determining who can recover for their injures after an accident, Illinois uses the “modified comparative fault” analysis. Under this system, an accident victim who is partially at fault is not prohibited from bringing a claim against another party unless they are more than 50 percent responsible for the accident. However, the accident victim’s total damages award will be reduced by their percentage of fault.

For example, assume John and Linda get into a car accident. John suffers serious injuries, totaling damages of $300,000. Linda was not hurt. If a jury finds that Linda was 80 percent responsible for causing the accident and John 20 percent responsible, John’s total damages award would be reduced by 20 percent, from $300,000 to $240,000. However, if the jury found that John was 55 percent responsible for the collision, he would be entitled to nothing.

Damages in a Personal Injury Case

We are ready to fight for you

Nothing will ever turn back the hands of time to before the accident. However, through a personal injury lawsuit, you may be able to recover meaningful compensation that will allow you to begin moving on with your life more easily.

Types of Damages

Accidents impact people in different ways, and every case and every client is unique. The result is that even the most experienced lawyers cannot foresee what an exact damages award will be. However, a skilled attorney can often provide a ballpark figure by considering your possible economic and non-economic damages.

Economic damages are the out-of-pocket costs that come along with being in an accident.

Non-economic damages compensate accident victims for the psychological effect that the accident had on their lives and their ability to live their life the way they had planned.

Economic Damages

Economic damages can be proven by presenting receipts, medical records, or paychecks and may include:

  • Past medical expenses
  • Future medical costs
  • Lost income
  • Decreased earning capacity

Proving some types of economic damages may require an expert witness to forecast the present value of a future sum of money, such as in the case of future earnings. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you understand the likely amount of economic damages.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages are much more “personal” than economic damages, as they depend so heavily on an individual’s unique circumstances. However, typically, a non-economic damages award in a personal injury case will include amounts for the following:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of society

Winning Damages in Your Case

At Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, we believe that personal injury cases are about more than winning. Winning a case means proving that another person is liable for your injuries. However, true advocacy requires an attorney’s ability to tell your story effectively. It requires telling a compelling story about what your life was like before the accident, what it will be like in the future, and how those two lives are different. We have the skills, knowledge and empathetic approach necessary to identify the full extent of your damages. This way, at the conclusion of your case, you can rest assured knowing that you will be fairly compensated for what you have been through.

Wrongful Death Claims

Wrongful Death Claim Lawyer

Preventable accidents are the third-leading cause of death in the United States and the fourth-leading cause of death in Illinois. Each year in Illinois, thousands of people die as the result of an accident. In fact, according to the most recently available data from the Centers for Disease Control, there were over 6,000 preventable deaths in Illinois in 2019 alone.

Wrongful death lawsuits can be filed after any type of preventable accident.

A wrongful death claim is a type of personal injury lawsuit in which a victim’s family brings a civil claim against the person responsible for their loved one’s death. In Illinois, surviving spouses and children can recover compensation for a loved one’s wrongful death. Wrongful death claims are very similar to other types of personal injury lawsuits, except that they are brought by the personal representative of the accident victim’s estate on behalf of the surviving family members. A personal representative is an individual you name in your will to handle your affairs after you die. 

The following accidents are frequently the basis for wrongful death claims:

Motor vehicle accidents
Slip and falls
Dangerous or defective products
Medical malpractice
Birth injuries
Construction accidents
Workplace accidents

Damages in a wrongful death claim are also slightly different from damages in a personal injury claim. For example, under Illinois law, the following damages are available through a wrongful death claim:

• The loss of financial support an accident victim would have provided;
• The surviving family members’ grief, sorrow and mental suffering;
• The loss of instruction, education, and moral training the accident victim would have provided to their children; and
• Loss of consortium. 

When dividing up the proceeds from a wrongful death claim, the court will consider the level of dependency of the spouse and each child and distribute the damages accordingly.

If you’ve been injured… YOU MUST READ THIS

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.
