Radiation Injury

Hawaii Radiation Injury Lawyer

Radiation from Diagnostic Testing & Radiation Therapy Error

Radiation is used both to diagnose and treat illnesses. Health care providers that perform radiation therapy are expected to be trained on how to give appropriate radiation doses and ensure the safety of patients. Inappropriate exposure to radiation can cause devastating injuries.

There are three different types of radiation exposure:

  • External irradiation
  • Contamination
  • Incorporation

External irradiation results when a person is exposed to an external radiation source such as an x-ray. A patient is considered contaminated by radiation when residual amounts of radiation stay in their body. Patients can also experience radiation incorporation in which cells, tissues, and organs absorb the radiation. You cannot incorporate radiation without contamination.

Too much radiation in a body can result in serious illnesses and injuries such as nausea, bone marrow failure, infection, vomiting, diarrhea, peeling, sores, loss of sensation, paralysis, as well as nerve, circulation and heart damage.

If you or a loved one were injured during radiation treatment, contact a Hawaii attorney at Bostwick & Peterson, LLP to discuss your potential medical malpractice case. You may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering.
