Congratulations to Levinson Axelrod, P.A. Partner Adam Rothenberg on securing another six-figure medical malpractice settlement.
Although the details of the settlement are confidential, the case involved a medical malpractice claim arising from a failure to timely diagnose an infection. Thanks to Adam’s experience in this field, he was able to secure a sizeable $600,000 settlement for our client.
Adam’s work in this case and another failure to diagnose claim he recently resolved for $750,000 exemplifies his extensive experience litigating claims of medical negligence and failures to diagnose. In New Jersey, these are among the most challenging types of personal injury cases, as they involve complex standards of law and medicine and require plaintiffs contend with powerful medical malpractice insurers that care more about profits than people.
Fortunately, New Jersey law makes it clear that medical providers can be held liable for negligence. Specifically, this means liability for causing injuries because they failed to meet the standard of care – such as being able to diagnose a condition or infection that a reasonably skilled and trained provider, under the same or similar circumstances, would have diagnosed.
