While Illinois workers' compensation is a no-fault system, some employers still pressure workers not to file claims. Some employers are known to push back, claiming an injury is not work-related.
At Kanoski Bresney, we have a team of lawyers devoted to protecting injured workers through settlement negotiations and at arbitration. With office locations in Bloomington, Champaign, Decatur, Macomb, Pekin, Quincy, Rushville, and Springfield, we are ready to serve injured workers throughout central Illinois.

Injuries occurring on the job are covered by workers' compensation — regardless of whether the employer was negligent. A workplace injury can involve anything from a construction accident to repetitive stress injuries, back injuries to occupational diseases. The attorneys at our law firm help ensure that workers get all the benefits they deserve and are entitled to receive.
Am I Coming Up Against a Statute of Limitations in my Case?
Do not delay. Illinois has state laws governing the time allowed for filing specific lawsuits. If you miss the deadline for filing your case, you jeopardize your rights and may not be able to file. Discuss your case with an attorney as soon as possible.
We Have Collected Over $100 Million for Injured Workers
Employees often fail to report injuries because they fear employer retaliation. Our attorneys have the experience to ensure that injured workers get medical benefits and lost wages. We work hard to understand the extent of our clients' injuries and determine whether they are eligible for temporary total disability, permanent total disability, or permanent partial disability.
We have collected more than $100 million for injured workers, proving that we have the skill and knowledge to advise our clients on the following:
- Reimbursement for rehabilitation costs
- Clients feeling pressure to not report injuries or minimize the effects of their injury
- Being required to go to a company nurse instead of the family doctor
- Worry about retaliation for filing a workers’ compensation claim
The lawyers at our law firm often handle difficult cases, including those involving carpal tunnel syndrome, occupational diseases, broken bones, repetitive motion damage and knee injuries. We are committed to understanding the specifics of our clients’ cases, taking the time necessary to learn about the injury to best meet their legal needs and offering an honest evaluation of any possible claims.
