“Ashley” (not a real person) knew that fighting her breast cancer would be difficult, but she had no idea how difficult it was going to be. The cold that washed over her during chemo, the nausea, the fatigue, the psychological shock of seeing all of her hair fall away—that was what made it real, the first time she cried after getting the diagnosis—it was all adding up to the struggle of her life.
When Ashley’s oncologist suggested that they add radiation treatment to the regiment, Ashely agreed. She was eager to battle her cancer by any means necessary, and the doctor said the radiation would help destroy the malignant cells which were causing her so much suffering.
What Ashley did not anticipate, however, was the burning. Burning that went above and beyond anything she could have reasonably expected. After her first radiation treatment, entire layers of skin were peeled away and her chest was left weeping, red and raw, as if she had suffered an extremely bad sunburn. The pain was nearly unbearable, and the doctors were at first dumbfounded.
A review of the machine used in Ashley’s therapy showed that it was putting out radiation at an unsafe level, bombarding her with enough radiation to cause the severe burning. Further investigation into her case revealed the manufacturer may be to blame, and Ashley sought the help of an experienced personal injury attorney, who quickly filed suit against the medical equipment manufacturer.
The manufacturer employed a team of lawyers to keep the civil case locked in a seemingly endless stream of motions, filings, injunctions, and “fact finding” breaks. The goal was to use their superior resources to bleed Ashley out, perhaps get her to settle for less rather than risk everything. Ashley’s lawyer suggested she take her case to USClaims to help keep her fight going.
