Illinois Personal Injury Lawyers Fighting for Accident Victims

Chicago Personal Injury Lawyer Jonathan RosenfeldVictims who have been injured in serious accidents, or who have lost loved ones, may not know where they can turn to get their lives back on track. While they are healing physically and psychologically, they may bear the burden of substantial medical bills and other costs. Through a personal injury claim, a victim can seek compensation from the person or business that caused the accident. Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers, LLC is committed to maximizing compensation for each of our clients. Our practice is 100 percent devoted to advocating for accident victims. We are proud to have obtained more than $250 million in verdicts and settlements.

Car Accidents

Careless or reckless drivers can cause life-changing harm in a matter of moments. A victim of a car accident has a right to hold a driver accountable for their injuries. They would need to show that they would not have been injured if the driver had used reasonable care in operating their vehicle. A personal injury attorney in Illinois can help a victim pursue compensation for their economic and non-economic damages following a car crash. These may include medical bills, lost income, property damage, pain and suffering, and costs related to future treatment for their injuries. Like other personal injury cases, car accident claims must be brought within the applicable statute of limitations. This provides the time window in which a victim can take legal action after an accident.

Truck Accidents

Truck accidents are often devastating because the size of a truck dwarfs passenger vehicles. Truck drivers and trucking companies must comply with federal and state regulations that control their industry. Many accidents result from violations of regulations, which can provide strong evidence of fault. Even if a trucking company was not directly responsible for an accident, a victim may be able to hold the company indirectly responsible. This involves showing that the at-fault driver was an employee of the company, and they were working in the scope of employment when they caused the crash. Trucking companies and their insurers fight hard against these claims, so a victim should hire an attorney who has the tenacity and experience to counter their tactics.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle riders have an equal right to use the road, but drivers of cars and trucks do not always share the road with them appropriately. Drivers may fail to see motorcyclists because they are not paying attention when making turns or changing lanes. In other cases, a driver may act aggressively toward a motorcyclist. Sometimes, however, a driver or an insurer argues that a motorcycle accident victim was partly at fault for a crash. This is an important reason to hire an Illinois personal injury attorney who can protect a victim’s right to the compensation to which they are legally entitled.

Premises Liability

People and entities in control of property have an obligation to keep their property in a reasonably safe condition. If a visitor to the property suffers injuries, they may be able to pursue a premises liability claim. They would need to show that the defendant was aware or reasonably should have been aware of the hazardous condition that caused the accident. Common hazards on property include slippery floors, uneven pavement, broken steps, missing railings, and inadequately cleared ice or snow. A victim should pursue a claim as soon as possible after an accident to ensure that vital evidence is preserved.

Medical Malpractice

Incompetent care by a medical provider can cause serious harm or even death to a patient. Medical malpractice may involve surgical errors, misdiagnoses, medication errors, or birth injuries, among other examples. These cases usually require testimony from an expert witness, who can explain the standard of care that would apply to a medical professional in the defendant’s specialty. An expert also can describe how the defendant’s negligence caused the patient’s injuries and discuss the nature of their injuries. Our Illinois personal injury lawyers can retain persuasive experts for patients bringing claims.

Nursing Home Negligence

Many families face the challenging decision of placing an elderly loved one in a nursing home or assisted living facility when they can no longer live independently. Even if you carefully select a home for your family member, you should remain vigilant to the risk of negligence or abuse. Nursing homes often are understaffed, and the staff may fail to pay attention to a resident’s specific needs. In other cases, a nursing home may hire an employee who is unqualified or who has serious red flags in their history. If you suspect that negligence or abuse may have occurred, you should promptly remove your loved one from the home and contact an attorney. We may be able to help you recover compensation for your loved one’s medical bills and their pain and suffering.

Workers’ Compensation

Illinois residents may sustain injuries or develop illnesses that are related to their jobs. When this happens, they can seek benefits through the state workers’ compensation system. Benefits are available regardless of fault, but this does not necessarily mean that an employer or its insurer will make payments without resistance. A workers’ compensation claimant will need to show that their injury or illness was related to their job, and they may need to provide substantial medical records. Benefits usually cover the costs of medical treatment, in addition to some lost wages. In many cases, a worker may be able to sue a third party that caused the accident in a separate claim as well.

★★★★★
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld. Michonne Proulx
★★★★★
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong
★★★★★
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
