Pegalis & Erickson, a malpractice law firm in Long Island, New York, has a longstanding history of successfully advocating for our clients in and out of the courtroom. When you watch this video, you’ll see an interview with Robert Fallarino, a medical malpractice lawyer at our firm. Mr. Fallarino discusses how he helped one of his clients obtain a $15 million jury award.
Mr. Fallarino’s client was a woman in her mid-40s with three young children. She detected a lump in her breast and went to a breast care center for a mammogram. The doctor misdiagnosed the lump as a clogged milk duct, when in fact, it was a cancerous tumor. The end result was that the woman wasn’t diagnosed with cancer until about a year later, which allowed the disease to spread well beyond the breast to her lymph nodes and bones. In this interview, Mr. Fallarino offers some valuable advice for patients who think they may be the victim of medical malpractice.
At Pegalis & Erickson, we go the extra mile to walk our clients through each step of the litigation process and ensure they are fully informed of their legal rights and options. Contact our malpractice law firm at (516) 303-9642 or visit our website to read about our jury verdicts.
