Car Accidents


Driving is a common activity for many people, but it is also one of the riskiest things you do on a regular basis. Drunk, distracted, and otherwise negligent drivers pose a danger to everyone else on the road, often causing crashes and severe injuries. We can help you hold negligent drivers accountable for any harm done to you by pursuing compensation for your medical bills and other losses.

Truck Accidents


Commercial truck drivers are on the road for long hours almost every day, and the size and weight of their vehicles can cause major damage if they are operated unsafely. When you are injured in a truck accident, we can help you uncover negligence in the form of driver fatigue, improperly loaded cargo, and other breaches of trucking industry regulations, and pursue compensation from all liable parties.

Medical Malpractice

Doctors and other healthcare professionals provide essential services that many people rely on, but the unfortunate truth is that they occasionally do more harm than good. Mistakes including missed or incorrect diagnoses, improper medication, surgical errors, and birth injuries may cause patients lasting damage. If any of these things have happened to you, you may be entitled to compensation through a medical malpractice lawsuit. Your attorney can help you investigate the specific cause of the error and the parties who may be responsible so that you know where to focus your efforts in your claim for recovery.

Wrongful Death

When an accident proves fatal, it is often the victim's family who bears the brunt of the impact as they struggle with grief over the loss of a loved one and financial stress related to the victim's medical expenses and the income the victim can no longer provide to support their family. Fortunately, family members of the deceased can also pursue compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit that covers financial losses, healthcare and funeral expenses, and pain and suffering. A wrongful death lawsuit is also possible in cases in which the death was intentional, and you may be awarded punitive damages to account for the responsible party's callous actions.

Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse and neglect is a widespread problem in the United States that affects a vulnerable segment of the population. If you or a loved one has suffered abuse at the hands of nursing home staff in the form of physical or sexual assault, substandard care, or insufficient supervision, an attorney can help you seek justice.

Premises Liability

Whether you are visiting a friend in their home or shopping at a local business, the property owner owes you a reasonable duty of care to mitigate risks that could lead to injuries. Possible injuries involving premises liability include those resulting from slip and fall accidents, unsafe structures or products, and inadequate security.

Farming Accidents

Farms are abundant in McLean County and Central Illinois, and along with them comes the potential for accidents involving combines, tractors, and livestock, as well as grain bin explosions. When farm accidents are caused by another party's negligence, your attorney can help you pursue compensation for your resulting injuries.

Defective Products

Sometimes, the products you rely on the most prove defective, and in the most serious situations, you may suffer injury or harm as a result. A product may malfunction because of a flaw in its design or an error in the manufacturing process, and there may be multiple at-fault parties, including a retailer who knowingly sells a defective product. We represent clients in defective product cases involving medical equipment and pharmaceuticals, power tools and appliances, and baby products. We will help you identify the root cause of your injuries and pursue compensation from any liable parties.

  • I contacted Kanoski Bresney. I met with Todd and one of his associates. We talked for a better part of an hour. He took my case, and from that moment on, I was up to date on everything. He did more in two weeks than that other attorney did in three years.

  • After a work related injury I was dealing with resistance from an insurance company. I felt lost in a world I knew nothing about the legal world. Kanoski Bresney helped guide me to make the best decision for myself. I am incredibly grateful.

    - Mariah Johnson

  • Todd handled my case and I thank God for him. He was more than dedicated at getting me the settlement I deserved. He has a good heart and did more than he had to to make sure I was taken care of. Thank you so much

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a time limit for filing a personal injury claim?

In Illinois, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years in most cases. This means that person must file a claim within two years after an accident or within two years after they first knew about an injury. In some cases involving government liability, the statute of limitations is one year.

What is my personal injury claim worth?

The value of a personal injury will be based on a number of factors, including the age and health of the victim, the extent and severity of their injuries, disabilities that have affected the victim's ability to earn an income, the physical and emotional pain and suffering of a victim and their family, and whether an injury occurred because of someone's gross negligence.

Can I receive compensation if I was partially at fault for an injury?

Under the comparative negligence laws in IL, you can pursue compensation as long as you were 50% at fault for your injury or less. If it is determined that you were partially at fault, the compensation you can receive will be reduced by the percentage that you were at fault. If you were 25% at fault, you will receive 75% of the total amount of your damages.

What are my options if I was in a car accident with an uninsured driver?

If an at-fault driver was uninsured, or if their insurance policy will not fully cover your damages, your own insurance policy may provide uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage. Our attorneys can help you negotiate a settlement with your insurance company and determine whether you have other options for receiving compensation in an accident.
