Holding Individuals and Companies Accountable for Injuries To Minors

In our role as advocates for injured children, we frequently take on additional challenges as we attempt to decipher what happened in cases where the children may be unable to articulate the details regarding the circumstances surrounding their injuries.

After using those details to reconstruct the scene of the incident, we seek out all of the evidence needed to prove the responsible individual or corporation’s liability. Our dedicated child injury lawyers work to secure the most favorable resolution in all of our cases with the understanding that the recovery we secure may be necessary to compensate the child for the remainder of his or her life.

Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC is proud to represent children in the following types of cases:

Unique Considerations for Illinois Accident Cases Involving Minors

The immediate and long-term impact of an event or incident on a child must be considered in all personal injury and medical negligence cases involving children. In cases involving common childhood injuries such as fractures or closed head injuries, it is crucial that the injuries and damages be assessed to determine their future impact on the child as he or she matures into adulthood.

Long-term ramifications of injuries on the growth, development and mental well-being of children are often overlooked, and it is our goal to detect and assess all of the current and potential complications that have resulted from each injury and could manifest themselves later on in life.

Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC represent babies, infants, and toddlers in different forms of medical negligence and personal injury scenarios. Our attorneys are always mindful of how injuries may impact the child in the future, and regularly seek out some of the leading specialists in the fields of pediatric neurology, orthopedics, and neuro-psychology to assist in assessing our clients’ strengths and deficits thoroughly.

Going the extra step for our personal injury cases involving children frequently means the difference between an excellent recovery that can genuinely help a child receive the care that they may require to live a meaningful life.

Watchful Eyes of the Illinois Courts Going the Extra Step to Protect Children in Personal Injury and Medical Negligence Settlements

All Illinois verdicts and settlements involving cases for minors exceeding small amounts must be approved by a judge to ensure the fairness of the settlement. In most child injury cases, an estate or trust is opened where the funds are held in an interest-bearing account until the child reaches the age of majority or until the disability has been lifted. Opening a trust or estate is an additional procedural step, but it is just one more way in which the law works to protect innocent children from harm and deceit perpetrated by caregivers.

In the case where a child has died in an accident or due to medical negligence, the family may be entitled to pursue a civil lawsuit to recover compensation under the Illinois Wrongful Death Act.

Client Reviews
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 helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan! Giulia
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
