Personal Injury Lawyer Making Home VisitsSeveral months ago, I was contacted by the eldest of six adult children who was concerned and angered about the circumstances involving his mother’s death following complications related to a fall that occurred at the facility.

Apparently his 88-year-old mother was admitted to the facility for rehabilitation following a stroke, which left one side of her body motionless.  According to the son, the staff at the facility inappropriately allowed the woman to sit unsupervised on the toilet as two staff members waited outside of the bathroom (for more information on nursing home falls look here).

Considering the woman’s physical condition, it wasn’t too surprising that within minutes, the elderly woman fell from the commode and struck her arm and head on a nearby sink.  The fall resulted in a badly fractured arm and fracture to her skull with a bleed on her brain. Within weeks of the incident, the woman succumbed to her injuries.

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
