Eleni Coffinas Secures $3.6 Million Settlement in Medical Misdiagnosis Case

October 4, 2021 in

In a Queens court on September 1st, 2021, top trial attorney Eleni Coffinas secured a $3.6 million settlement on behalf of a woman who suffered an endometrial cancer diagnosis delay. 


37-Year-Old Patient Diagnosis with Benign Fibroids, Actually Suffering from Endometrial Cancer


An otherwise healthy, 37-year-old flight attendant experienced an eight-month delay in receiving an endometrial cancer diagnosis. The physician overseeing her care failed to perform an endometrial biopsy, and as such, misdiagnosed her cancer and concluded that her symptoms were due to benign fibroids. 


By the time the patient was accurately diagnosed with endometrial cancer, eight months had passed and her cancer had progressed to stage IV. Her cancer had also metastasized to other parts of her body, including her colon. If she would have been diagnosed eight months earlier, her cancer would have been at an earlier stage and easier to treat, affording her a better prognosis.
