Motions: The Art of Shaping your Nursing Home Case

Motions are a critical tool to be used in your nursing home case. Used effectively and they can stifle the defendant’s strategy and maximize your client’s recovery. You must draft, file, and argue a motion any time you want the court to compel the other side to do something or settle an issue. There are many different kinds of motions but some common ones in nursing home litigation include those to summarily end a case, compel discovery responses, or question the legitimacy or subject matter of an expert witness. Also, motions in limine, a specialized motion, can be used to limit or stop entirely the introduction of evidence or testimony at trial. You can raise a motion at any point during a case-even after a case has ended. Here are some examples of motions from Illinois nursing home cases:

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
