Radiation Injury Lawsuits If you or a loved one were injured or died from radiation treatment at CentraCare Health Coborn Cancer Center, you and your family may be entitled to financial compensation.
Radiation is a dangerous form of treatment for certain medical conditions, including cancers. It is only used in severe cases due to the damage it can cause a patient’s body. There are strict guidelines for health care providers who oversee and administer radiation given the dangers associated with radiation treatment. You may have a claim if you or a loved one was inappropriately exposed to radiation due to a doctor or medical professional’s negligence or mismanagement.
Medicine has made many advances in the treatment and care of disease. However, medical mistakes by health care personnel or defective medical devices sometimes harm patients. The radiation used to treat a disease can harm the patient if it is improperly administered by overdose or under-dose. Providing the improper amount of radiation may harm the body part for which it was prescribed and expose and harm other tissue and organs as well. Likewise, if the disease is not appropriately treated by an under-dose of radiation that disease may grow and spread.
The severity and symptoms of radiation injury depend upon what body parts receive the excessive or inappropriate dose. In extreme instances, overexposure can result in tissue death, paralysis, skin changes such as peeling and sores, and damage to other body parts and organs. If you or a loved one have been improperly exposed to radiation, it is important to consult with a legal specialist as soon as possible so that your rights are protected.
