Attorneys for Patients Mistreated at Champaign County Nursing Home

The quality of care that is provided in a nursing home is often reflected on the level of dignity and respect given to every resident. Most prominently, residents should be given a level of privacy and independence and be seen as human beings in a compromised state during rehabilitation, while disabled or at the end stages of life. Unfortunately, fostering dignity is often not the focus of many healthcare providers in nursing facilities, assisted-living homes and rehabilitation centers in Illinois.

Our team of dedicated nursing home advocacy lawyers strive to protect the rights of every Illinois nursing facility resident. We take legal steps to intervene on behalf of victims of abuse, mistreatment and neglect. In addition, we post publicly available data that outlines current safety concerns, opened investigations and filed complaints against nursing homes statewide.

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case.

★★★★★
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, Google User

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, Avvo User

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home.

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, Avvo User
