Decatur Motorcycle Collision

Car Accidents


Collisions often occur in Champaign and the surrounding areas because of drunk driving, distracted driving, dangerous highways, and a variety of other reasons. Following a car accident, you may be covered by the at-fault driver's insurance policy, or you may be able to pursue compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. Our attorneys can help you understand your options and provide you with the legal help you need.

Truck Accidents


Large trucks are a common sight on the roads and highways in central Illinois, and when collisions with these vehicles take place, people in passenger vehicles are likely to suffer serious injuries. We can help you determine whether a truck driver, trucking company, or other parties may be held liable for truck accident injuries involving driver fatigue, dropped cargo loads, or other factors.

Medical Malpractice

Mistakes made by medical professionals can lead to long-lasting injuries or permanent disabilities. For example, misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose an illness can lead to a condition going untreated, or surgical errors can lead to internal injuries. If doctors, nurses, hospital personnel, or other medical providers did not follow the proper standards of care, and a patient suffers injuries as a result, this is considered medical malpractice. Our attorneys can help you determine whether your injuries were caused by medical negligence, and we will work with you to determine who was responsible and help you receive compensation for your damages.

Wrongful Death

While serious injuries can affect a person and their family for years, in the worst cases, a person may lose their life due to someone else's negligence. In these situations, a deceased person's surviving family members can pursue compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit. The damages that can be recovered in this type of claim include the deceased person's medical expenses and pain and suffering before they died, as well as the loss of the income they would have earned, the loss of companionship they would have provided to their loved ones, their family's grief and sorrow, and expenses related to their funeral and burial.

Nursing Home Abuse

Elderly or disabled people who live in nursing homes or assisted living facilities may be seriously injured because of the negligence of staff members. In addition to suffering harm because of nursing home abuse, issues such as inadequate staffing, improperly trained staff members, and lack of supervision can lead to injuries due to neglect, including bedsores, falls, and wandering.

Premises Liability

If you have been injured while at someone else's home, in a public place such as a restaurant or store, or on a college campus, the property's owner may be liable for your damages. In premises liability cases, including those involving dog bites, slip and fall accidents, or bar fights, a property owner may be liable if they did not take the proper measures to protect the safety of visitors to their property.

Farming Accidents

The agricultural industry involves some of the most dangerous occupations in the United States, and farm workers in central Illinois can be injured in a wide variety of situations, including combine accidents, tractor accidents, or grain bin explosions. Our attorneys can help you understand who is liable for farm accidents, and we will work to make sure you receive compensation for your injuries.

Defective Products

Manufacturers, distributors, and retailers should make sure that products are safe to use, and consumers should be provided with instructions about how to use a product safely and warnings about the potential risks of injuries they may face. People who are injured by defective products may be able to pursue compensation because of design defects, manufacturing defects, or failure to warn about a product's dangers. We can help you determine your legal options in cases involving motor vehicle recalls or defective tools and equipment, drugs and pharmaceutical products, baby products, or medical products.

  • 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.
