Harmful Effects of a Radiation Error

The effects of a radiation error can be absolutely devastating. Recent stories of patients who have been seriously harmed by a radiation overdose have raised the level of concern for this type of treatment. While radiation can be helpful for patients with malignant tumors, a radiation mistake can be extremely harmful.

A radiation error can lead to harmful effects such as: 

  • organ failure;
  • tissue damage;
  • reduced cell reproduction;
  • damaged DNA;
  • burns;
  • cell damage;
  • bone marrow destruction;
  • infection;
  • hemorrhaging;
  • blood vessel damage;
  • brain swelling;
  • shock;
  • neurological disturbances; and
  • death.  

No patient should have to suffer further injuries because of a radiation error. The reality is that many of these types of medication errors are completely preventable.

A Kentucky personal injury lawyer will evaluate your case and order an investigation into your injuries if there is evidence that a radiation overdose has occurred. An attorney will protect your legal rights and collect the necessary evidence to build your Kentucky medication error claim.
