Surgical Procedure Possibly Add to Illnesses

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 15-Feb-2011

A popular, high-intensity cancer therapy that utilizes pinpoint radiation, could be putting patients at significant risk, reports say.

The cancer treatment surgery, called Stereotactic radiosurgery, targets tumors on the brain or spinal cord. Its advantage is that it does little damage to surrounding tissue. But according to recently published reports, the amount of radiation is so concentrated and intense that if not used correctly, overdoses in radiation can occur.

At least one patient was left comatose and nearly 100 patients had been given the wrong dosage of radiation and were at risk for potential long-term problems, reports say. Mistakes involving stereotactic radiosurgery are not solely the problems of the doctors or technicians performing the surgery, but are indicative of shortcomings in the regulation of medical radiation devices and treatements, reports say.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
