kanoski bresney scholarship program 2024

Kanoski Bresney is pleased to offer its Stand Up to Distracted Driving Scholarship for the Fall 2024 semester. This scholarship, which awards five students $1,000 each, runs each semester and is now accepting applications for Fall 2024. Kanoski Bresney understands the financial strain pursuing a higher education can inflict on a college student, which is why we are thrilled to assist five students in paying for costs related to their college education.

Since the scholarship’s inception in 2021, Kanoski Bresney has awarded a total of $30,000 to 30 students pursuing a higher education. We created the Stand Up to Distracted Driving Scholarship to highlight an issue that has become disturbingly prevalent in our society: distracted driving. We see clients from all walks of life who have suffered grave injuries or have even lost a loved one in a tragic distracted driving accident. As a law firm that takes pride in providing high-quality legal guidance to injured individuals, we hope this scholarship inspires students to drive safely and keep themselves and others free from harm while out on the road.

Springfield Throws In The Towel After 16-year Battle To Overturn 2 Jury Verdicts In Favor Of A Mother Who Fought For Her Drowned Son

March, 2023

Mary Jones’ youngest son died a hero. While standing in chest deep water and 8 feet directly in front of one of 2 posted lifeguards for 40,000 square feet of water, Michael Jones slipped in a muddy bottom drop off and struggled. After critical moments passed without any action by the city lifeguard, Michael’s 16-year-old younger brother, Eric, grabbed for him, despite being unable to swim. Both boys slipped and spent over a minute struggling for their lives while the lifeguard averted his head toward a diving area of the lake. Michael was pushed and found his footing, but Eric slowly went under the water. Despite immediate yells for help to the lifeguard, the full emergency action plan was not started until anywhere from 15-30 minutes later. Eric was found exactly where his brother initially told the lifeguard. The lifeguard employees testified that had they followed their own training, Eric would be alive.

Two juries and 2 trial judges and 1 appellate court returned and upheld verdicts finding the city was reckless in failing to train their guards and ignoring 30 years of industry knowledge in lifeguard safety.
