Veterans with Prostate CancerBetween the years 2002 and 2008, more than 100 veterans received "brachytherapy", a form of radiation treatment for prostate cancer at the Philadelphia Veterans Administration Hospital. They were unaware that, in a majority of cases, the radioactive "seeds" required for the treatment had been implanted in the wrong parts of their bodies. As a result, the treatment caused damage or, even worse, was ineffective in combating the veterans' cancer.
WCB has successfully handled many veterans' claims. If you or someone close to you is a prostate cancer victim who may have suffered damage as a result of brachytherapy received at the VA Hospital of Philadelphia, please feel free to contact us.
