Needle Stick Claims
You may be a victim of a needle related injury, often called ‘needle stick injuries’. They are caused by medical needles and syringes being inserted on a part of the body.
If you have been pricked accidentally, this may cause you to worry about infection or you may be suffering from excessive bruising or scarring after an injection.
The pin prick injury could also have been caused by a blood test which was carried out incorrectly or poorly. This is likely to cause bruising, pain and possible scarring.
There are inherent risks to undergoing all medical procedures, the risks should be fully explained to you by the Doctor and/or Nurse practitioner prior to any medical procedure going ahead. Equally if you have been discharged without being properly assessed or investigated and the Doctor/Nurse failed to explain these risks they may be negligent.
If you consider that you have been let down, suffered injury and emotional distress as a result of a failed and negligent needle injection, you may have a claim for compensation and other losses.
