Class action filed for Cedars radiation patients
Professor Robert Rabin, an expert on regulation of health and safety, is quoted in this article on a class action suit by patients overdosed with radiation at Ceders-Sinai Medical Center:
Legal action is already underway for the 206 patients who received overdoses of radiation from CT brain scans at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
But a class-action lawsuit filed this week on behalf of the victims has little chance of succeeding, several experts said.
U.S. courts have generally been unsympathetic in so-called fear of cancer cases, said Robert Rabin, a law professor at Stanford University Law School. The likelihood of future harm must be high, he said.
