Personal Injury Attorneys Serving Residents of Humboldt Park Neighborhood

If you have suffered a mild to a severe injury that was caused by another person’s negligence, you deserve financial compensation. However, Illinois civil tort law is complex, and filing and resolving a case without legal representation could cost you thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars in missed monetary recovery. At Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC, our attorneys will fight aggressively on your behalf to ensure you receive maximum financial compensation for the injuries you have endured.

Our experienced Humboldt Park neighborhood attorneys understand that claims adjusters will use a common tactic and offer victims a low initial settlement to resolve their case to save the insurance company’s profits. Unfortunately, these low settlement amounts are usually insufficient to cover all medical expenses, hospitalization, rehabilitation, therapy and additional surgeries. Even so, many victims will still take the quick cash to avoid the stress and hassle of resolving their claim. However, having an attorney represent your case is an easy solution for ensuring you get a higher amount of financial recovery than if you go it alone.

Protect Your Rights

If you have yet to hire a skilled attorney to handle your compensation claim, you need to work as your own advocate to protect your legal rights while your case is under review and resolution. There are two crucial steps to protecting your rights if your case involves injury or property damage that was not your fault. These steps include:

  • Do Not Discuss Your Case with Anyone – After the accident or incident, you might be inclined to discuss your case with family, friends or claims adjusters. However, whatever you say could eventually be used to diminish the amount of compensation you receive if the claims adjuster interviews eyewitnesses. The best option is to consult an attorney to discuss your case and provide legal options before accepting a final settlement.

  • Do Not Accept Money or Sign Away Your Rights – Initially, the claims adjuster will likely be highly cooperative and extremely helpful while you fill out the paperwork to resolve your claim. However, it is important to remember that it is the adjuster’s duties to minimize the amount of payout you receive. A “quick cash” offer might be appealing at first, but at this stage, you are likely not sure how much your case is truly worth. You may have ongoing medical bills and need to stay home and away from work while you heal. The amount of financial compensation you are offered likely does not cover your non-tangible costs including pain, suffering, discomfort and emotional trauma.

  • Consult with a Personal Injury Attorney – Skilled lawyers who handle personal injury, medical malpractice, and wrongful death cases are highly experienced in resolving compensation claims. They can use their resources to connect with doctors, accident reconstruction experts, and other professionals who can provide expert testimony in front of a judge and jury. Their testimony can support your claim that defendant is responsible for all your damages.

While it is true that the personal injury attorney will take a portion of your financial recovery through a contingency fee agreement, statistics show that you are likely to receive far more compensation with legal representation then you could get without an attorney.

Should You File a Claim or a Lawsuit?

Nearly all compensation cases involving accidents, malpractice, premises liability, defective drugs, dangerous products and wrongful death are resolved through negotiating an out of court settlement. Because of that, your attorney will initially file a claim for compensation to resolve your case with the insurance carrier. However, if the claims adjuster is stubborn and refuses to offer a reasonable settlement amount, our law firm is willing to go to court to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve. At this point, our attorneys will begin building your case to present evidence in front of a judge and jury.

What is the Charge?

Likely, your injuries and damages have generated major financial uncertainty that could place your family in jeopardy. Because you are already facing a financial burden, our law firm will handle every aspect of your case including resolving your compensation claim or lawsuit without any upfront payment. This agreement means that we provide a free initial consultation at no charge and do not require fees or payments for our representation until we have recovered your monetary compensation. Also, should we fail to secure compensation on your behalf, you owe us nothing.

About Humboldt Park Illinois

Humboldt Park is home to Chicago’s dynamic Puerto Rican community. Other large ethnic groups include Scandinavians, Swedes, Polish, and European Jews also call the neighborhood home. The area is bordered on the south by the Union Pacific Railroad tracks, on the north by the Bloomingdale Avenue, on the east by Humboldt Park proper and Cicero to the west.

The community was first established in the 1800s and named after German naturalist Alexander von Humboldt. The neighborhood’s large parks link the area to the Chicago’s Boulevard Park system. By the 1970s, the neighborhood became an extremely dangerous community with gang violence, crime, and illegal activity, which caused an economic depression in the area. Housing values declined. While much has changed over the decades, overcrowded conditions continue to be a fundamental problem for residents, local establishments, and business developers.

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 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
