Failure To Notice Epidural Mass- Spinal Discs. Synopsis: The plaintiff went to an internist complaining of pain radiating down her legs. The plaintiff claimed that the internist suggested exercises and prescribed Tylenol with codeine, but did not perform any diagnostic tests or studies. The following day, the plaintiff returned to the health care group complaining of increased pain and weakness in her legs. At that time, the plaintiff was seen by a physician's assistant who allegedly prescribed a muscle relaxant even though the plaintiff had no relief from the Tylenol. The plaintiff claimed that neither diagnostic studies nor neurological evaluation were performed. The next day the plaintiff complained that her legs were giving out from under her. When she was seen by another physician, she had marked decreased range of motions in all parameters. The plaintiff claimed that she was given another muscle relaxant, but did not undergo any diagnostic testing. The following day the plaintiff was transported by ambulance to a local hospital where a CAT scan revealed a large epidural mass at L4-5 in the mid-line. She was immediately transferred to another facility where she underwent a lumbar discectomy and laminectomy. Following surgery, the plaintiff was left with a severe cauda equina. The plaintiff, mother of three, is now a residual paraparetic with sensory motor deficit of the bowel and bladder. She has chronic low extremity pain and has limited ability to mobilize without crutches and is mostly confined to a wheelchair for ambulation.

Patient's undiagnosed fracture leaves her unable to walk. The plaintiff arrived at the emergency room with full cervical restraints after her air bad deployed when her vehicle struck a tree, but she was discharged after the on-call radiologist read a negative CT scan. Prior to being discharged, the plaintiff was unable to stand on her own, was assisted to the floor by the nursing staff and then into a wheelchair. That information was never relayed to the emergency room physician who had already signed the discharge papers. The plaintiff's husband was unable to get her into his automobile and other nursing staff personnel arranged for alternate transportation to take her home. Prior to discharge, the plaintiff was unable to dress herself. The plaintiff returned to the hospital the following day after she woke up unable to move her legs. A review of the CT scan from the previous night, along with an MRI, confirmed an undiagnosed fracture. The plaintiff was med-flighted to another hospital for emergency surgery and underwent extensive rehabilitation. Although she has feeling in her lower extremities, the plaintiff is unable to walk and has limited use of her upper body. A suit was brought against the emergency room physician, radiologist and nurses who argued that the injuries were caused by the automobile accident and not the delay in surgical intervention. The plaintiffs also claimed that there was issues of secondary gain due to the fact that the plaintiff had had previous psychiatric history. The case was settled through mediation.

"Any time I need legal work done, it will be someone from this office! They are outstanding!"

5 stars - Based on 5 reviews

The Lawyer's group of Pellegrini,Seeley and all of the other layers within that office are OUTSTANDING, they pay personal attention to the needs of their clients. I say this because of the efforts they have made on my behalf, which is extended beyond my personal lawyer; Charles R. Casartello Jr. I have become totally disabled secondary to a work accident, and have a very hard time getting about. I needed to bring some papers to Charles, and was having a difficult time walking with my crutches up to the office.A lawyer from that office who was going to work volunteered to bring those papers into the office and bring them to my attorney, he certainly did not need to offer to bring them up to the office but did so willingly, and placed them correctly with the person they needed to get to. This is only one example(among many) of things above and beyond what was/is needed of them.

A year ago, I was hospitalized and Charles Carartello Jr visited me while I was there,about each week.As far as my Workman's Compensation case is concerned, they Charlie and his paralegal Amy have bent over backward to make sure all issues that needed addressing are taken care of.He is also has very much character also I say that because at one point, I asked him what I should do and he politely answered that he would not suggest one way or another that /what I should do.Leaving the decision entirely up to me.

Each and everyone from that office is polite and respectful of me the person.

Any time I need legal work done, it will be someone from this office! They are outstanding!



"You can find no better champion..."

"You can find no better champion than the law firm Pellegrini, Seeley, Ryan & Blakesley. My attorney was extremely professional, respectful and quick to respond to all of my questions. I wouldn't think twice about returning to Pellegrini, Seeley, Ryan & Blakesley."

Earl Seeley is by far the best lawyer I have ever used; we feel like he has not only been exceptional at his job but also part of our family. Would highly recommend this firm.
