I’m a personal injury and medical malpractice attorney at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers in Chicago, IL with a nationwide practice who represents the most vulnerable members of our society: the very young and the very old. They have the same rights as everyone else — to be treated with compassion and respect — but their vulnerability means they need special protection and representation against those who injure, neglect or abuse them. This is my life’s work.

 

Nursing Home Negligence

I represent elderly nursing home residents against the people and institutions that have caused them harm. Whether by physical abuse or neglect, fraud or emotional trauma, I believe that no one deserves to be a victim of exploitation. My mission is not only to ensure my clients receive all the damages they deserve; it’s also to help them restore the personal dignity to which they’re fully entitled.

 

Some of my nursing home negligence (click here) cases involve:

 

  • Bed Sores (see here)
  • Falls (see here) 
  • Medication Errors (see here)
  • Wrongful Death (see here)

 

Birth Injuries & Injuries To Children

I also represent infants and children who have been hurt, exploited or neglected. I stand up for children damaged by medical negligence, abused in foster care, and poisoned or injured through others’ carelessness. I do this because children truly have no defense against the thoughtless or the predatory in our society, and because they deserve the same concern and protection that adults take for granted.

 

Some of the child injury cases (learn about them here) my office is currently involved with include:

 

  • Birth Injuries (see here)
  • Cerebral Palsy (see here)
  • Erb's Palsy (see here)

 

Serious Personal Injury Cases

I am a zealous and powerful advocate for vulnerable clients and their families in their time of need. But I’m also a trustworthy counselor who will listen to and empathize with my clients and their loved ones. I am a proud father and a devoted grandchild, and I draw upon my own life experiences when helping families whose worlds have been turned upside down by abuse, a severe injury, or death.

 

I’m proud to say that I’ve made a difference in how society treats our most vulnerable members. In addition to recovering millions of dollars on behalf of my clients, my successful representation of nursing home victims has forced nursing homes to make changes to their resident care policies and to fire unfit employees. Many elder groups have engaged me to speak about my work and my accomplishments in this area.

 

Some of the pending personal injury matters that my office is involved with include:

 

  • Car Accidents (look here)
  • Bicycle Accidents (look here)
  • Dog Bites (look here) 
  • Motorcycle Crashes (look here)
  • Truck Wrecks (look here)
  • Defective Medical Devices (look here)
  • Pedestrian Accidents (see page here)
  • Slip and Falls (view page here)
  • Workplace Accidents (see page here)

 

A Commitment To Clients

When I became a lawyer, I made a vow to myself and to every one of my future clients: I would always remember that every client and every case is unique and deserves to be handled with respect and attention to detail. If I cannot personally assist in a matter, I use that same dedication to secure the most qualified attorneys called for by the circumstances.

 

Nothing takes the place of hard work, completed with integrity. That is my professional code, and it is my promise to you.

We specialize exclusively in personal injury cases. If you've been in a car accident, we can help get your fair due compensation from responsible insurance companies.

 

The business model of the insurance industry is to minimize payouts to accident victims; our business model is to make them pay you every cent you are owed.

 

OUR PROCESS

After that, we take the reins. We'll investigate all potential avenues to ensure you're not being short-changed by an insurance company. We'll open communication channels to make it clear that you will not be a victim twice over.

 

We dedicate all necessary resources to resolving your case quickly, and with the maximum possible compensation for your pain and suffering. Most cases end in settlements, but we'll go to court for you if we need to.

Nursing Home Error - Positive Settlement
My family experienced a medical error in my grandmother’s nursing home in Illinois. We live in Colorado and were unable to be near as we would prefer, which caused a lot of stress for my wife and I. I contacted Jonathan Rosenfeld with Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers and am very happy I did. Jonathan explained the process, provided frequent status updates, and ultimately delivered a positive result. Thank you for helping when we really needed you.

Top Notch Service
A family member was neglected in a nursing home. Consulted with other firms but moved to Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers after a friend recommended them. One of the best choices I have made. Great communication and the case closed faster than expected.

Best Injury Attonery in Chicago!
Jonathan is great! He helped me settle a dispute I was having with a shady doctor. The best part is we never had to even go to court! It’s great to have a lawyer who actually cares about his clients. After hearing my circumstances he didn’t even charge me for the consultation. I highly recommend him.

Best Attorney Ever!
A really good attorney for an accident case. I’ve worked with a number of attorneys in the past on different types of injury cases, and am very pleased with this attorney and his office. He was always extremely pleasant and patient with me as I asked questions. I really feel like he knew what he was doing.

A big help. Thank you
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. I will definitely keep his information should I get in another accident or have a friend who needs a top lawyer who will do the job well. Thank you.

Wrongful death lawsuit
Would recommend and use this lawyer again if needed. Friendly, easy to deal with, seemed to know what he was doing. Keep us informed in a timely manner. We ended up settling during mediation. Jonathan laid out our options and let us choose what to do without pressure - he said he would be happy to take the case to trial if we wanted him to do so.

Jonathan is a Hard Worker Who Delivers GREAT Results
Jonathan took on my case and immediately made me feel confident that hw would give his full effort to making sure I got a positive and fair resolution. He was able to get me a very large settlement that will never heal my injuries, but will take care of my ever mounting medical bills. I would not have been able to fight for this justice in my condition. I would recommend Jonathan to anyone who has been injured or who has a friend or family member who could use his help. Thank you Jonathan Rosenfeld!!

I would not hesitate to use Jonathan for any complex personal injury case.
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. I now consider Jonathan to be a friend of the family and appreciate his willingness to talk with me about any legal questions I have.
