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:
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:
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:
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.
