South Florida Unsafe Blood Injury Lawyers

Skilled Medical Malpractice Lawyers Dedicated to Helping Clients Harmed by Unsafe Blood in Palm Beach County, Broward County and Across South Florida

Blood transfusions are often a necessary and life-saving element of the practice of medicine, especially in surgical cases or other situations where a patient has lost blood through injuries sustained in an accident. Detailed processes and procedures exist to protect patients from receipt of unsafe blood and blood products, but, unfortunately, hospitals, clinics, doctors, nurses and other medical professionals may fail to adhere to those standards and cause serious harm as a result. When this is the case, and you suffer additional harm because of the receipt of unsafe blood or unsafe blood administration practices, you may be entitled to recover financial compensation to hold the responsible parties accountable for their negligence.

Frequently Asked Questions About Unsafe Blood Claims in South Florida

FAQ: Did the person who administered by blood have to know that the blood was unsafe for me to recover compensation for my injuries?

Not necessarily. In some cases, the blood you received may have been contaminated or otherwise made unsafe because of the improper actions of the hospital or medical facility itself—in which case the doctor or nurse may not have had specific knowledge of the unsafe nature of the blood, especially if the medical professional played no role in the blood storage or even in obtaining the donated blood in the first place. In those cases, we would investigate to hold the hospital or facility responsible for their negligence in providing unsafe blood to patients.

FAQ: What kind of compensation can I receive if I was harmed by unsafe blood?

We will fight to make sure you are compensated for all of your medical expenses, including those related to the treatment of any condition arising from your receipt of the unsafe blood. We can also recover compensation for lost wages, lost earning potential, pain and suffering and any rehabilitative care or in-home care made necessary by the harm you have suffered. If your loved one died because of the receipt of unsafe blood, we can recover compensation for funeral expenses and loss of financial support or loss of consortium, depending upon your relationship to the victim.
