Clark Fountain Wins Award Against Negligent Radiation Oncologist

The Clark Fountain team won a $6,320,000 arbitration award for clients, Belinda and Scott Burns against radiation oncologist Ronald Woody, M.D. Based on expert testimony and other evidence, the arbitrator found Dr. Woody negligent in administering an overdose of radiation to treat squamous cell cancer in situ—a precursor to skin cancer—on Ms. Burns’ hands. The overdose resulted in radiation burns and radiation fibrosis causing disfigurement, and the likelihood of future amputation of one or both of her hands.
