  • Failure to Provide a Residential Environment Free of Accident Hazards

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 07/18/2014, an investigation report is opened at the facility concerning its failure “to provide supervision during bedtime snack for [a resident], who is cognitively impaired resident, with poor safety awareness, who require supervision and assistance with ADL (activities of daily living).” This is in response to an incident where the resident sustained “first-degree burn to left anterior thigh and second-degree burn to right anterior thigh” showing that the resident called for help “stating he accidentally spilled coffee on his thighs.”

  • Failure to Provide Adequate Treatment to Heal or Prevent Pressure Sores

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. Ethan Armstrong, Google User
★★★★★
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, Avvo User

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, Avvo User
