How to Get a Newfoundland & Labrador Breast Cancer Class Action Lawsuit Settlement Claim Form | www.nlbreastcancersettlement.ca
Between 1997 and 2005, the Newfoundland and Labrador Eastern Health Authority of Canada reported erroneous test results to breast cancer patients, and subsequently failed to report the full scope of the error when it was discovered. Following a scathing press report by the Canadian Broadcasting Company, a government inquiry known as the Cameron inquiry was set up to investigate the affair. The inquiry ended with a report listing multiple mistakes by Eastern Health, and was followed by an apology by Eastern Health. Concurrently, a group of several hundred breast cancer patients treated by Eastern Health launched a class action lawsuit against it. The lawsuit has since been settled, and members of the class are now eligible for compensation.
If you underwent estrogen and progesterone receptor tests (breast cancer tests) for your breast tissue samples at the Eastern Health hospital system between 1 May 1997 to 8 August 2005, you may be eligible for the financial compensation in this Breast Cancer Class Action Lawsuit Settlement.
