Families suffer emotional and financial trauma in wrongful death cases.
Families suffer emotional and financial trauma in wrongful death cases.
Each year, more than 100,000 people are killed because of someone else’s negligence. Victims of wrongful death pay the ultimate price, but their families often suffer psychic and financial injury when a loved one is lost.
As a family-owned law firm, we understand that losing a loved one is one of the most difficult things a person can go through. If your loved one’s death was caused by another’s carelessness, then you deserve compensation. Our attorneys will treat you with respect and compassion while fighting for your rights.
Medical Malpractice Is a Leading Cause of Wrongful Death
The depth of experience that our law firm offers means we can handle even the most complicated wrongful death cases, such as those involving death caused by medical malpractice. In recent years, studies have shown that medical mistakes are a much greater problem than was previously thought. According to a recent study in the Journal of Patient Safety, between 210,000 and 440,000 patients die each year at least in part because of preventable medical errors. This makes medical mistakes the third leading cause of death in the United States, behind only heart disease and cancer.
Negligence on Roads and Highways Causes Thousands of Deaths every year
We can also handle cases in which a life has been lost due to the negligence of a motor vehicle driver. Auto accidents are a major cause of death in the United States, with more than 30,000 fatalities occurring each year, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. In Illinois, there are nearly 1,000 highway deaths per year, with 991 occurring in 2013, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation

The lawyer I worked with at Briskman Briskman & Greenberg provided me great advice and guided me well through my unique situation. I highly recommend their counsel to advocate on your behalf!
Paul Greenberg and his staff did an excellent job of representing me. I was called weekly and ask about my injuries and if I was getting good treatment. They took care of everything while I recovered.
After my car accident the attorneys at this firm really stood behind me and represented me so well. My attorney Maria Merman was amazing. She went above and beyond to ensure that the entire process remained stress free. Thank you Maria for your dedication, professionalism and hard work.
I had a great experience with this law firm. My attorney was Maria, she handled a car accident case for me.

My friend recommended Briskman Briskman & Greenberg. It was one of the best choices I made in 2015. Maria Merman was my lawyer and boy she was amazing, I will recommend this law firm to all my friends and family.
My old firm compared to BB&G was like night and day. When I called BB&G I was surprised to see that the attorney that was gonna substitute my case was Robert Briskman himself. When the insurance company saw that my firm was changed to BB&G they shaped up quickly.
Unlike the car accident, it was a painless process. They followed up with me often keeping me up to date on the progress. The case was settled and I was provided with a check for my damages. It was friendly and professional, and they took the time to explain everything.
We feel fortunate to have met you and we are thankful you represented us. In truth, we feel blessed you were able to take up our case and ensure that justice is done. In the future, we will make sure to refer any of our friends to you because we know they will get the ...
I was hit by a car, and my life changed in an instant. I was in pain, confused, and overwhelmed with medical bills. A friend told me not to settle with the insurance company, and she recommended I talk to Bob Briskman (of BB&G) about starting a law suit. From the minute we met, I ...
Hello my name is Evelynne Roth, I met Robert Briskman thru a lady on the airport bus that recommended him. I called him to tell him that I had fallen down the steps at school. I had broken my ankleand fractured my left and right foot. He was terrific with me and his legal expertise ...
I just wanted to thank you both for helping me through this process! I appreciate everything more than you know. You both are great, and were a pleasure to work with.
We think you have done a great job capturing what we went through and the general anguish and uncertainty we dealt with from the time of the accident on April 7 until our daughter was born on May 28. It is natural that our focus has been on raising our daughter this past year but ...
I just wanted to thank you for taking my case so late in the game and for trying to get everything that was so messed up, back on track. I’ve been struggling, stressed out, and depressed while dealing with this insurance company but now I can sleep just a little better knowing you have my ...
My husband was in a severe accident at work. We have been dealing with workers comp for over two years. I don’t know what we would have done without Robert Briskman and his team!

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.
