Firm Settles Medical Malpractice Claim, Pre-Suit for Above Statutory Maximum

STSW attorneys Andrew G. Slutkin and Jamison G. White have settled a claim in which a man lost vision in one eye after a severe eye infection was not timely diagnosed and treated. The settlement is unusual because it exceeds the Maryland legislature's cap on non-economic damages of $650,000.00 and was accomplished prior to the filing of an inevitably costly lawsuit.
