Personal Injury Attorneys Providing Legal Services to The Near West Neighborhood

If you have been injured by the negligent actions of another individual or entity, you have the legal right to seek financial recovery, which can be a substantial amount of money to pay your ongoing accident-related expenses. However, most personal injury and wrongful death cases are complicated and require the skills of attorneys who specialize in injury cases. The law firm of Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC have extensive experience taking on insurance carriers and can fight on your behalf to protect your rights to ensure you receive full financial compensation for your damages.

To determine the true worth of your case, you need to understand the principle of civil tort law and the process of “making you whole” again to cover your damages. By law, the money obtained as financial compensation is to provide a remedy for your losses and injuries. While it is impossible to return to the exact moment you were before the incident or event occurred, the law provides financial recompense to recover the money it costs, including:

  • All your medical expenses including emergency care, surgeries, treatment, rehabilitation and ongoing therapies;

  • The total expense of to repair or replace any damaged property including your vehicle involved in the crash;

  • Compensation to offset your missing wages because you are unable to return to work immediately after the accident;

  • Recompense for your non-economic losses including pain, suffering, mental anguish, emotional trauma, and discomfort.

While calculating tangible costs including medical bills and missed wages is simple, determining how much your pain and suffering is worth can be significantly more challenging. However, a personal injury attorney can use proven methods for calculating the monetary impact to your life-changing damages if you are unable to restore your life and health to their previous conditions.

How do I Maximize my Financial Compensation Award?

If we lived in a perfect world the insurance company that provides coverage to the person at fault for your damages would simply write out a check to cover your expenses and make you “whole again.” Unfortunately, the claims adjuster working for the insurance company is determined to make sure you accept the lowest amount of financial compensation possible to hold onto the company’s profits. Comment tactics used by claims adjusters include:

  • Make the Claim That You Are Responsible for Your Injuries – Redirecting the blame onto you is a simple a solution for insurance companies to avoid paying out on a claim. They know that if you caused the accident, they have no obligation to pay you any amount of compensation at all.

  • Claim That You Are Partially at Fault – If it is impossible to redirect all the blame and make a claim that you the only one to blame for the accident, the insurance company or claims adjuster might state that you are partially at fault. If they can convince you that you share equally in being at fault, then they are entitled only to pay 50% of what is due.

  • Argue That Your Injuries Are Pre-Existing – The claims adjuster may dispute your claim by stating that all your injuries were pre-existing and not a result of the accident or event. The adjuster might also say that you are falsely claiming that your injuries are as bad as you state. Without having a legal professional representing your side if the case, the dishonest approach used by the claims adjuster might be enough to support their case at trial if their lawyers can convince the jury.

  • Use Delay Tactics – The financial burden of your case could be costing you a lot and causing you to go under financially because you are unable to pay your bills, receive much need accident-related care or return to work. The insurance company representing the defendant understands that by delaying a payout, you are more likely to accept any amount of money to ease the drain on your financial situation if you believe you might not resolve the case for years.

The easiest solution for circumventing the devious tactics used by claims adjusters who works for the insurance carrier is to hire a skilled personal injury to protect you and your side of the case legally. Our attorneys are eager to fight for your claim and can help you maximize the amount of financial compensation you receive.

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.
