Illinois’s Statute of Limitations on Injuries Puts Property Over People, Cautions Attorney Paul Greenberg

BBGClock 1

Chicago, Illinois – Attorney Paul Greenberg from Chicago’s leading personal injury law firm Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, brings to light a stark disparity in Illinois’s statute of limitations. If a person is involved in a car accident in Illinois due to someone’s negligence, the person has more time to sue to recover for her car damage than for her injuries. The statute of limitations for property damage is five years, while it is only two years for personal injuries. The implications of this are far-reaching and troubling for anyone who has been injured in any form, including but not limited to dog bites, car accidents, and slip-and-fall incidents.

Greenberg emphasizes this discrepancy is not just a legal quirk, but a significant hurdle for victims seeking justice. The swift running out of time can be a hindrance to individuals who might not immediately realize the long-term impacts of their injuries. A victim’s focus is primarily on recovery immediately after an accident, often causing legal action to take a backseat. This time limitation can thus potentially affect the rightful compensation they might be entitled to receive.

Determined to address this issue, Greenberg advises anyone who has been injured to seek legal counsel as soon as possible. With such a narrow window to act, it becomes crucial for victims to understand their rights and initiate legal proceedings as quickly as possible. Greenberg’s firm, Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, is dedicated to assisting victims in navigating through this complex legal landscape and securing the compensation they rightly deserve.

Briskman Briskman & Greenberg’s team of experienced attorneys is committed to providing personalized attention and guidance to victims and their families throughout the entire legal process, ensuring the best possible outcome in each case.

The disparity in the statute of limitations is a reflection on how Illinois law, perhaps inadvertently, puts “property over people.” Greenberg asserts that this gap needs to be addressed for a more balanced and fair legal system that equally protects the rights of all.
