Result: Adam Rothenberg Recovers $2 Million Medical Malpractice Settlement

$2M Medical Malpractice Settlement

Levinson Axelrod, P.A. Partner Adam Rothenberg of our Edison office recently recovered a $2 million medical malpractice settlement for the family of a victim who passed away due to complications arising from surgery.

Adam represented the family of a patient who suffered complications after undergoing abdominal surgery. As a result, she was comatose for most of the time following surgery and later succumbed to the complications.

While representing the patient’s surviving adult children, Adam was able to effectively prove liability, in part, by researching the publications of the defendant. However, he encountered difficulties when seeking damages, as the law limits financial recoveries in medical malpractice cases only to damages for conscious pain and suffering (in addition to tangible economic losses) and because the plaintiff had very limited periods of conscious pain and suffering and was not an income producer.

Despite these challenges, Adam was able to effectively negotiate a six-figure settlement with the defendant, which will provide his clients with $2 million in compensation.

Adam L. Rothenberg is a Levinson Axelrod, P.A. Shareholder and Partner who focuses his practice on complex civil litigation involving medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, products liability, construction accidents, and other serious personal injury cases. He has been a New Jersey Certified Civil Trial Attorney for more than 15 years and has recovered well over $50 million in verdicts and settlements for clients across the state over the course of his career.
