Firm Partner Eleni Coffinas Obtains Settlement of $2,100,000 for Breast Cancer Victim’s Family

January 29, 2021 in

In a Nassau courtroom on January 12th, 2021, firm partner Eleni Coffinas, obtained a settlement totaling $2,100,000 for the family of a woman who passed away after her radiologist failed to diagnose her breast cancer in a timely manner. 


A Breast Cancer Diagnosis Delay Led to the Death of a 37-Year-Old Wife and Mother


A breast cancer patient passed away after suffering a six-month delay in receiving a breast cancer diagnosis. Her radiologist failed to properly diagnose her condition, as he misread her studies and failed to detect any sign of breast cancer. Ultimately, the woman’s breast cancer was not properly diagnosed until six months later, and by then it was too late—the patient eventually succumbed to her cancer, and is survived by her husband and 14-year-old daughter.
