I was subjected to over-radiation during cancer treatment. What can I do now?

When you or a loved one undergoes treatment for cancer, your expectation is for the treatment process to hopefully result in a positive outcome—or at least to make you or your loved one better, not worse. Unfortunately, some cancer patients suffer serious injuries as the result of excessive dosages of radiation during the course of their treatment, leaving them with significant injuries after the treatment is complete.

Over-radiation can occur if the machine conducting the radiation is calibrated incorrectly. This could be the fault of a physician, medical personnel, or cancer center where the treatment took place. Over-radiation can also occur as the result of an incorrect or overzealous course of treatment prescribed by an oncologist.

Side-effects and symptoms of over-radiation are typically specific to the area on which the radiation treatment occurred. For example, if you or your loved one received radiation during the course of treatment for a brain tumor, then side-effects of excessive radiation may include loss of teeth, loss of hearing and sight, and a loss or reduction of motor skills, or other cognitive deficits. Regardless of the specific location of the radiation treatment, side-effects from excessive radiation are frequently serious in nature and can cause permanent damages.

Sometimes these side effects can take months or years to manifest themselves. If you or a loved one has experienced excessive radiation during cancer treatment, contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney immediately. A competent medical malpractice lawyer could help you obtain a recovery for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages, which you may suffer now or in the future. Statutes of limitation can be relatively short and may expire before the full extent of an excess radiation injury or side effect is fully known, thus you should contact a lawyer immediately upon learning of the excessive radiation.

Our firm accepts medical malpractice, wrongful death, and personal injury lawsuits on a contingency fee basis, meaning you would owe us neither legal fees nor costs unless we recover money damage for you—thus, there is no up front cost to you for us to handle the case. Our firm handles cases throughout Florida and has offices in Gainesville, Ocala, Chiefland, Lake City, Palatka, Jacksonville, Daytona, Palm Coast, St. Augustine, Orlando, Kissimmee, Lake Mary, and Melbourne, or in serious cases where a client is unable to travel, we will send an attorney to you.

If you or a family member has been seriously injured or died in a bicycle accident, car crash, tire failure crash, rollover or other incident or as the result of someone else’s negligence or malpractice, contact the Law Offices of Stephen K. Miller for a free phone consultation at (866) 496-8752 or via email at Info@ForYourLaw.com
