Nobody is Superhuman

After an injury, the physical and emotional trauma are a lot to deal with. The prospects of legal and financial distress can be overwhelming even if you have a basic understanding of what lies ahead. This is not the time for you to have to bring your best game to the fight for things like compensation for medical bills and lost wages.

Lake Forest personal injury attorneys are prepared and ready to fight for your rights in recovering damages for injuries suffered through the fault of others.

Accidents Happen

Personal injuries occur everyday in ways most people are never expecting. This may be in an automobile or motorcycle accident, injury from medical treatment, an on-the-job injury, slip and fall on property belonging to others, a construction site incident, nursing home abuse, assault or any one of an infinite number of situations that may result in physical or emotional harm due to the actions of another. Despite the fact that there is an expectation that others maintain a property or act in a manner that will not cause harm to others, it is the injured party who must prove damages.

A Duty to Act

It is incumbent upon all of us to act, or not act, in a manner that is not intended to cause injury to others. An example to which we can all relate, the Motor Vehicle Code of Illinois defines how a driver must operate a motor vehicle as per the rules of the road and who has the right of way. There is an expectation that drivers will act appropriately in accordance with the laws. Using this same example, when a person runs a red light resulting in a collision, this represents a breach of duty to act appropriately.

Obtaining the Help of Experts

A cause of action against the driver who ran the red light may be brought as long as there is sufficient evidence in the form of documentation of physical injury, perhaps medical testimony and any medical procedures that were necessary for recovery. This process of establishing a causal relationship to the actions of the other person who ran the red light is the work that Lake Forest personal injury attorneys perform every day. When you have enough to worry about in getting over the damage that may have taken you from your work or otherwise caused distress, you need someone on whom you can rely to ensure that your interests are preserved and protected.

Here are examples of some of the areas you will want to see protected:

  • Hospital bills
  • Medical Expenses
  • Physician expenses
  • Physical Therapy
  • Nursing Care
  • Lost Wages
  • Disability
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Disfigurement
  • Funeral expenses
Don’t Hesitate – Call Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers Immediately

In Illinois, as in most states, there is a limitation on the amount of time allowed to bring action against a defendant in a case of personal injury. This includes filing the lawsuit in time to avoid losing out on the opportunity forever. At least with personal injury cases, attorneys are prepared to take your case on a contingency basis, meaning you do not have to pay until you have prevailed in your case. You are never charged for a consultation to determine the merits of your case, but not acting at all is a guaranty that you will never be able to recover any damages.

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.
★★★★★
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.
★★★★★
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!
★★★★★
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.
