Needlestick Injury Compensation Claims


Needlestick injury compensation claims

Needlestick injury compensation claims can be made when someone has suffered as a result of a needlestick injury in work that wasn’t their fault.

While a punctured needle can be very painful, it is actually the risk of infection of diseases such as HIV and Hepatitis B and C that causes the most concern for victims of needlestick injuries. Even if someone affected by a needlestick injury does not get infected, the psychological stress they suffer can be great, and they may consequently require counselling.

Needlestick injury compensation claims can help victims cover the costs that arise from being infected by these diseases, as well as the physical and psychological injuries they cause.

Who can make a needlestick injury compensation claim?

It is up to your employer to ensure that you work in a safe environment. There should be procedures in place to safeguard you from the risk of needlestick injuries, but sometimes these procedures may not be sufficient or someone else’s negligence may lead to injury.

People working in an environment with needles most commonly make compensation claims. These include nurses, doctors, hospital porters and cleaners.
