Bringing a Blood Transfusion Compensation Claim
If you have received negligent treatment during a blood transfusion, our solicitors should be able to help you to win the compensation you deserve. Scenarios, where we are highly likely to be able to assist you, include the following.
- You were given the wrong blood type
- You were treated with contaminated blood and contracted Hepatitis A, B or C or HIV as a result
- You were given a blood transfusion without your consent
- You were given a blood transfusion in error
There are extremely high standards set for the manufacturers and suppliers of blood products. It is their duty to ensure that contaminated products do not reach hospitals for use on patients. Equally, hospitals also have a duty of care towards patients, ensuring that they make the correct decisions and apply appropriate treatment options. If either healthcare suppliers, clinics, or hospitals fail in their duty, you are likely to have a case against them. Contact our expert medical negligence team today for further advice.
