Although claims vary from individual to individual there are common features that we look for when putting forward claims on behalf of our clients.
The actual physical injury involved in a needlestick is often very minimal. The majority of compensation for injury (known as general damages) is for the stress, worry and in extreme cases, psychological disorders resulting from coming into contact with a needle. The more extreme the reaction to the incident, the higher the level of damages likely to be awarded.
As well as compensation for physical and mental injury, we also look for additional compensation if you have been required to undergo a course of post-exposure prophylactics (PEP). PEP is a course of medication given when it is suspected that the needle donor may have been a carrier of the HIV virus.
Additionally, we also look to recover any financial losses you may have suffered. These are known as special damages and include lost income as a result of time away from work for treatment or recovery, the cost of any treatment or medication or any other financial losses arising from the incident.
