Variations in terminology, same deadly consequences

Sometimes referred to as: severe sepsis, sepsis infection, septic shock, severe sepsis or septicemia– sepsis must be identified and treated as early on as possible in order to provide the best chances of survival. When left undiagnosed and untreated, sepsis can be fatal.

In order to make a diagnosis of sepsis, at least two of the following must occur:

  • Heart rate above 90 beats per minute
  • Hyperventilation (more than 20 breaths per minute)
  • White blood cell count below 4000 cells/mm

Client Reviews
  • Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld.
    ★★★★★
  • Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own.
    ★★★★★
  • This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you.
    ★★★★★
  • Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan!
    ★★★★★
  • 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.
