Needlestick injury claims

If you have been injured or pricked by a needlestick, you may be entitled to claim compensation with assistance from Blackwater Law personal injury solicitors.

Blackwater Law solicitors are experienced personal injury solicitors and can help you to put together a claim for injuries arising from:

  • Syringes
  • Hypodermic needles
  • Other sharp medical objects

If you’ve suffered an injury that wasn’t your fault due to any of the above, we can provide you with the help that you need. We have helped a plethora of clients to get the compensation they deserve after suffering a needlestick injury. As soon as you contact us, we will talk to you in-depth about your claim and quickly identify the chances of success as well as the sum you’re likely to be entitled to.

There are many reasons why a needlestick injury might occur. Whilst an incident may occur at a hospital or other medical organisation, you may also come into accidental contact with a needlestick whilst working for a local authority or contractor. Whatever the causes are, you can rely on us to work hard to put a strong claim together. Needlestick injuries can lead to expensive treatments, viruses or infection. You may find yourself needing immunisation or treatment jabs. You may suffer a great deal of emotional pain as a result of the incident and could lose income whilst you recovery from the injury. Counselling may need to take place and your friends or family members may need to take time off work to care for you.

The psychological effects of a needlestick injury can be intense, so it’s important that any compensation you are given reflects the disruption that is caused. Many needlestick injuries are caused by the needles being disposed of carelessly. All needles need to be disposed of responsibly and carefully in UK hospitals, but this doesn’t mean that this is always the case. Many doctors and nurses have suffered from needlestick injuries at work but a great deal of them have failed to press forward with a claim despite being perfectly entitled to do so. Whether you’re a dentist, council worker, patient or anyone else that has suffered a needlestick injury as a result of someone else’s negligence, we urge you to come forward.

The more evidence you can present to us, the bigger the chances of needlestick injuries being successful become. More and more people are coming to us when they require needlestick injury compensation, so why not get in touch with our expert team today if you too have been injured by a needlestick due to someone else’s actions?
