A person commits fraud when he or she knowingly makes a material misrepresentation with the intent of inducing another person to act or refrain from acting to his or her detriment. It is also necessary to show that the material misrepresentation was justifiably relied upon when the “victim” acted or failed to act.









Fraud can include, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Oral Misrepresentation
  • Written Misrepresentation
  • Fraud by Silence
  • Concealed Defects
  • Partial Disclosure without full disclosure
  • A Misrepresentation of Law

Negligent Misrepresentation

Negligent Misrepresentation, a form of fraud,occurs when a defendant, in the course of his trade or profession, negligently gives false information to the plaintiff. The plaintiff must reasonably rely upon this information to his or her detriment. Finally there must be no privity of contract, or economic mutuality, between the plaintiff and the defendant. A simple way to test for privity of contract, is if the plaintiff and defendant can enforce the contract by lawsuit against one another.  If so, then there is privity of contract.

    "Working with The Rothenberg Law Firm was a very easy and straightforward process. They actually surprised me with the extra time and additional attention to my case. I'd recommend them to anyone."

    Victoria H.
    New York

    “During the course of the litigation there where a number of settlement offers which the firm promptly and dutifully communicated to me and urged me not to accept. They were right. In the end they got me an enormous amount of money for my injuries and loss of earnings; far more than I could have ever imagined.”
