Radiation Injury

San Francisco Radiation Injury Lawyer

Have You Been Injured by Incorrect Use of Radiation in California?

Injuries sustained as a result of inappropriate exposure to radiation can be physically devastating to a patient. When the medical professional that is performing radiation therapy on a patient acts negligently or wrongfully and the patient is harmed by the radiation, the provider may be guilty of medical malpractice.

Our legal team at Bostwick & Peterson, LLP has experience litigating radiation injury cases and may be able to help you receive compensation for injuries sustained as a result of improper exposure to radiation.

Types of Injuries

The incorporation of radiation into the body can cause a wide range of painful and potentially life-threatening symptoms for the patient. If you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice in San Francisco involving radiation injuries, we advise that you contact our firm at once. Radiologists and other medical professionals should be knowledgeable in all radiation procedures and protocols. You deserve a generous settlement to help your family recover from this traumatic event, so do not hesitate to call a lawyer from our firm to discuss your claim and how we can move forward against the negligent parties.

No matter how the patient is exposed, two types of serious injuries can occur as a result of inappropriate exposure:

  • Contamination - Contamination occurs when the patient is improperly exposed to radiation treatment. The skin can become contaminated and the radiation can potentially be deposited inside the body.
  • Incorporation - Incorporation occurs when the body's cells, tissues, and organs (such as thyroid, kidney, or bones) take up the radiation.

Radiation injuries are very serious, and they often require extensive medical treatment to try to resolve the radiation damage. Receiving compensation for your injuries other damages is of the utmost importance. Our successes include recognition in Newsweek, Forbes magazine and a nomination for "Top Lawyer" in the Bay Area.
