LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pegalis and Erickson, LLC, announces it obtained the fourth highest verdict amount in New York State in 2012 for medical malpractice, and the tenth highest for all overall verdicts in NY State, according to Verdict Search, publisher of verdict and settlement news and research. Their publication, Top New York Verdicts, annually ranks the highest obtained verdicts of 30 law practice categories from all of New York State.

The particular case which earned the fourth highest verdict was tried by Robert V. Fallarino, of Pegalis and Erickson, LLC, in February 2012.  "We are pleased to win another top verdict in our practice area, which is also in the top ten overall verdicts, "said Robert Fallarino, Esquire.

The case involved a mother on Long Island, NY whose radiologist, Dr. Paul Fisher, failed to diagnose cancerous tumors in her breast. Dr. Fisher failed to order a breast sonogram which would have allowed for earlier detection.  The jury found that Fisher departed from an accepted standard of medical care. It determined damages totaling $15 million dollars.
