Car Accidents

From head-on crashes to rear-end collisions, all types of car accidents have the potential to cause severe injuries. We believe that negligent drivers should be held responsible for the damages they cause, and we can help you build a case for compensation against a driver who was drunk or distracted, driving recklessly or speeding, or otherwise endangering you and others on the road.

Truck Accidents

Large commercial trucks can be difficult to operate safely even for experienced professionals, and factors like driver fatigue, speeding, and improper maintenance and loading can significantly increase the potential for truck accidents that cause serious injuries. If you have been hurt, we can help you pursue compensation from the truck driver and other trucking industry employees who may bear partial fault.

Medical Malpractice

When you require medical care, it is important that you can trust that doctors, nurses, and other providers will give you the quality of treatment that you need. When their carelessness causes you harm, this not only damages your trust but may also result in unexpected expenses and long-term health effects. A medical malpractice lawsuit may be your best chance of obtaining the compensation necessary to aid in your recovery. With our extensive legal experience, we know how to get to the bottom of medical malpractice cases to uncover the source of the incident that has harmed you and confidently handle settlement conferences and trial litigation.

Wrongful Death

Unfortunately, many accidents involving another person's negligence result in the victim's death before he or she has the opportunity to recover damages. However, this does not necessarily signify the end of the case, as the victim's family members also have the right to pursue compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit. A wrongful death claim can recover all damages for which the victim would have been entitled, including medical bills, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering, and it also may result in punitive damages and additional compensation for the surviving family members' grief and loss of companionship.

Nursing Home Abuse

The decision to move into a nursing home is rarely easy, and it can be devastating when you or your family member suffers abuse or neglect from nursing home staff. We can help you in cases of clear physical or sexual abuse, as well as cases in which harm comes as a result of improper or insufficient care, or a lack of supervision for residents who require it.

Premises Liability

When you are legally on someone else's property, such as a store, a restaurant, a college campus, or a friend's home, the owner owes you a reasonable duty of care to ensure that you are safe from harm. If you are injured in a slip-and-fall or another type of accident because the owner fails to uphold that duty, we can help you pursue the compensation you are owed.

Farming Accidents

Central Illinoisans who work with heavy farm equipment, livestock, and grain bins know that the unexpected can sometimes happen, but that does not excuse preventable accidents caused by another person's carelessness. Unlike some personal injury attorneys, we have direct experience with farm accident cases and are prepared to handle their complexities.

Defective Products

You may worry that an injury caused by a malfunctioning product is somehow your fault for using it incorrectly, but this is often not the case. Sometimes, a defect in the product's design means that it poses a danger to anyone who uses it, and in other cases, a manufacturing error can lead to product units that do not meet typical safety standards. Product sellers may even be responsible if they falsely advertise a product's capabilities. With so many possible at-fault parties, you need an attorney who can help you sift through the details of your case to determine the best strategy for compensation.

  • 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.
