Medical Negligence

One of my clients received chemotherapy for breast cancer.  The drug the nurse administered to her was quite toxic and is required to be injected into a vein.

However, the nurse used the wrong injection site, causing the drug to leak into the client’s surrounding breast tissue.  This negligence caused severe tissue damage which required surgical intervention.

Through litigation, I secured a settlement for the maximum allowed under California law for pain and suffering damages in a medical negligence case.
