Attorneys for Patients Mistreated at Cornerstone Rehab & Health Center

Nursing home abuse is a serious and challenging problem, especially for families who have no other option than to leave a loved one in the hands of caregivers. In some situations, the abuse or neglect that occurs in a nursing facility is difficult to define and challenging to identify. The elderly loved one may suffer with challenging communication problems or memory loss making it difficult to notice any significant change in behavior or appearance. Sadly, the Peoria Heights nursing home abuse attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have handled numerous cases involving abuse in skilled nursing facilities in Illinois.

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.
★★★★★
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.
