Lawsuits Against Sun Healthcare

Sun Healthcare has had its share of lawsuits and being bought by Genesis in 2012 is apparently not helping matters. An investigation is being performed on behalf of Sun Healthcare stockholders due to the terms of the sale. Back in 2010, a Kentucky court awarded a plaintiff $42.75 million in a wrongful death case against Sun Healthcare.

Justia Lawyer Rating for Jonathan Rosenfeld

Client Reviews

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
After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
