Types of Accidents

Each accident case requires its own unique approach, as the circumstances of a head-on collision may be very different from a rear-end or rollover accident. The involvement of pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcycles, and other recreational vehicles can also change the situation, as can commercial vehicles like trucks, buses, and trains. You need an attorney who has experience with a wide variety of car accidents to advise you on the best approach for your specific case.

Uninsured and Underinsured Motorists

Pursuing compensation from a negligent driver can be challenging under any circumstances, and it may be especially disheartening to learn that the driver lacks the insurance coverage necessary to cover all of your damages. However, in many cases, you have another option for recovery through your own car insurance provider if you have uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage. We will help you work with your insurance company to ensure they are treating you fairly and that you obtain as much relief as your policy allows.

  • 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.
