Types of Injuries

Workers can suffer a wide variety of different types of injuries, and these can occur because of workplace accidents or due to the physical stress that some types of work place on a person's body. While workers' comp benefits will address any work-related injuries, demonstrating that an injury occurred while at work or because of the work a person performed can sometimes be difficult. Our attorneys can help injured workers take the right steps to receive benefits that address the medical care for an injury, as well as wage benefits related to temporary or permanent disabilities.

Repetitive Stress Injuries

Certain types of injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, may occur because of repetitive motions or other activities that place stress on a person's body. These injuries often occur over time, and they may involve damage to a person's muscles, tendons, or ligaments.

Occupational Diseases

Workers' compensation benefits will address any illnesses a person contracted while at work or because of the work they performed. In addition to infectious diseases, workers may need to address conditions caused by exposure to toxic substances, such as asbestos.

On-the-Job Vehicle Accidents

A person may receive workers' comp benefits if they were involved in a car accident while working. These benefits not only apply for delivery drivers or others who drive regularly, but also for anyone else who drives during the scope of their employment.

Pre-Existing Conditions

In some cases, workers' compensation benefits may be denied based on claims that an injury occurred because of a person's existing health conditions rather than the work they performed. Our attorneys can help show that an injury was not caused by a pre-existing condition, or we can help with claims involving the aggravation of a previous injury.

Third-Party Claims

To receive workers' compensation, it is not necessary to demonstrate that either an employer or an employee was at fault for an injury. However, victims can also pursue compensation from other parties who may have been responsible for their damages, such as the manufacturers of defective tools or subcontractors at a worksite who did not follow the correct safety procedures. A third party claim may allow a person to obtain compensation for damages not covered by workers' comp, such as pain and suffering.

  • 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.

  • 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.
