Car Accidents

Motor vehicle collisions are one of the most common causes of injuries, and they often occur because of driver negligence. We can work to hold drivers responsible for accidents involving distracted driving, drunk driving, or failure to stop. We also assist with accidents that occur on dangerous highways or at open intersections, as well as collisions with uninsured or underinsured drivers.

Truck Accidents

Collisions with semi-trailer trucks can be incredibly dangerous, and people in other cars or trucks are likely to be seriously injured due to the large size and weight of commercial vehicles. Our lawyers can help determine whether a truck driver, trucking company, or other parties are liable for truck accidents involving speeding, driver fatigue, jackknifed trucks, or dropped cargo loads.

Medical Malpractice

Negligence by doctors, nurses, surgeons, chiropractors, or other medical professionals can cause severe, long-lasting harm to patients. These injuries may occur because of a delay in diagnosis or failure to diagnose, medication errors, infections, or a wide variety of other reasons. Birth injuries to children or mothers can affect victims and their families for a lifetime. Our attorneys can help demonstrate that injuries occurred because medical providers did not meet the proper standard of care, and we will work to make sure victims are fully compensated for their damages, including medical treatment for an injury, loss of income, and pain and suffering.

Wrongful Death

When injuries are so serious that they lead to a person's death, a victim's loved ones may struggle to pick up the pieces. Whether a wrongful death was accidental or occurred intentionally because of homicide or assault, the person or company who was responsible may be held liable. Surviving family members can receive multiple different types of damages, including compensation for the costs of medical treatment before the victim's death, the income and services the victim would have provided to their family, loss of companionship, funeral and burial expenses, and grief, sorrow, and mental anguish.

Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing homes should be safe facilities where an elderly or disabled person can live comfortably while receiving the care and assistance they need. Unfortunately, these facilities are often understaffed, and they may fail to fully train employees or perform background checks. Patients can suffer serious injuries due to nursing home abuse and neglect, including falls, bedsores, or sexual assault.

Premises Liability

A property owner or the tenant in control of a property may be liable if a visitor is injured because of the failure to repair hazards or provide warnings about the risk of injury. Our lawyers can help victims recover compensation in cases involving slip and fall accidents, dog bites, bar fights, potholes, uneven pavement, electrical fires, swimming pools, and injuries in restaurants or malls and stores.

Farming Accidents

Accidents on farms can result in serious injuries for workers, and drivers can also be injured in collisions with farm equipment or free-roaming livestock. Our attorneys can provide representation in cases involving injuries that occurred due to grain-handling accidents, grain bin explosions, combine or harvester accidents, tractor rollovers or collisions, or ventilation violations.

Defective Products

Products that are sold to consumers should be safe to use, and instructions should be provided to inform people about how to use a product safely. Injuries may occur because of design defects, problems during the manufacturing process, or failure to warn about the risks a person may face when using a product. Our lawyers can help hold a product's manufacturer or distributor or a retailer who knowingly sold a dangerous product responsible for injuries caused to consumers. We assist with defective medical products, baby products, pharmaceutical products, tools and equipment, and parts or vehicles that were subject to motor vehicle recalls.

  • 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.
