January 25, 2017 – Mintz & Geftic has announced a $405,000 settlement of a premises liability action. The New Jersey law firm obtained the settlement on behalf of their client, who suffered major injuries when her foot became snagged in a gap in the floor of a busy office building in Middlesex County.

The floor gap where the plaintiff's foot got caught in was the result of construction work done by the defendant. The defendant then failed to repair this gap in a timely manner. 

The Plaintiff suffered injuries to her upper extremities triggering a complex regional pain syndrome that forced her into extensive medical care and disability from work for over two years. Her injuries are permanent yet under control.

The recovery included compensation for pain, suffering and disability as well as reimbursement for medical bills owed.

January 17, 2017 – Mintz & Geftic has announced a $400,000 settlement of a wrongful death accident case. The Elizabeth, NJ law firm secured the settlement on behalf of their client, an elderly man who was involved in a tragic slip and fall accident in Union County.  

Mintz & Geftic's client was on the way to his doctor appointment when he encountered a ramp at the building entranceway to the doctor's office. The ramp was too steep and it did not contain railings to help him steady his progress. As a result, the elderly man backpedaled and fell hitting his head on the ground causing a skull fracture. The skull fracture triggered a deteriorating condition that culminated in the plaintiff's death three months later.

The wrongful death accident case ensued resulting in the recovery of wrongful death damages on behalf of the plaintiff's survivors.

$3.2 Million settlement in a medical malpractice case brought on behalf of a 14-year-old girl from Hillside, New Jersey. When she was just 16-months-old, our client was misdiagnosed by a New Jersey hospital emergency room. As a result of the misdiagnosis, there was a delay in treatment at a point when timing was absolutely critical. Consequently, the young girl had to undergo multiple surgeries and placement of a feeding tube for many of the years that followed. She now has chronic kidney disease. The settlement monies will fund a short term trust and an annuity to ensure that all of this child’s needs are met during her lifetime (Bryan H. Mintz, Essex County, 2015).

August 1, 2016 – We are very pleased to congratulate Mintz & Geftic’s partner Bryan H. Mintz. After four years of a hard fought legal battle involving complex medical issues, Bryan secured a $3.2 Million settlement in a medical malpractice case brought on behalf of our client, a 14-year-old girl from Hillside, New Jersey. An Essex County Superior Court Judge approved the settlement on June 30, 2016.

When she was just 16-months-old, our client was misdiagnosed with a viral illness and sent home from the emergency room. It turned out that she had bacteremia at the time of that emergency room visit and required further workup and antibiotics. Bacteremia is an invasion of the bloodstream by bacteria.  In this case, the bacteria turned out to be streptococcus pneumoniae.

As a result of the misdiagnosis at the New Jersey hospital emergency room, there was a delay in treatment at a point when timing was absolutely critical. Consequently, the young girl had to undergo multiple surgeries and placement of a feeding tube for many of the years that followed. She now has chronic kidney disease.

The settlement monies will fund a short term trust and an annuity to ensure that all of this child’s needs are met during her lifetime.
