Lipsitz, Ponterio & Comerford represented a young woman in a medical malpractice case against a physician who administered radiation treatments following surgery for cancer. According to our client’s physician, the woman became sterile after receiving the radiation treatments in her pelvic area. Reasonable steps must be taken to protect patients from harm. In this case, our client’s ovaries were not shielded from radiation exposure. After a week-long trial, our client received a substantial settlement for their radiation exposure.
