Answers to Illinois Personal Injury Law FAQ Regarding Serious Accidents, Medical Malpractice, and Wrongful Death Cases

No one ever expects to be involved in an accident or mishap where he or his loved one is seriously injured or killed. Of course, the immediate attention rightfully focuses on getting necessary medical care or comforting the family following a loss.

Questions Arising After an Injury or Death

In circumstances where the injury is caused by the conduct of another person or company, the focus then begins to move toward what their legal rights are in terms of recovering compensation for losses including hospital bills, surgical fees, long-term care, lost income, pain, disability and other damages that the law allows an injured party to recovery.

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

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

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 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.
