November 1, 2022 in

In a Nassau courtroom on Jan. 12, 2021, firm partner Eleni Coffinas obtained a settlement totaling $2.1 million for the family of a woman who died 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 died after suffering a six-month delay in receiving a breast cancer diagnosis. Her radiologist failed to properly diagnose her condition by misreading her studies and failing 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.
