Experienced Blood Transfusion Errors Attorneys – File Your Claim Here
Thanks to advances in modern medicine, it is now possible to transfuse or donate blood to another person who may be in need due to conditions such as surgery or the aftermath of a car accident where massive amounts of blood are lost. Blood transfusions are fairly routine, but if the attending physicians do not do the due diligence, it is possible that the individual may get infected or incompatible blood, which can end up causing permanent health complications moments after. To this end, blood transfusions must be done in a safe and controlled manner, and doctors must adhere to a certain standard of care when carrying out the transfusion. Should the physician make an error during the transfusion that could be easily avoidable by being diligent, the injured patient has every right to file a blood transfusion lawsuit in order to recover money damages, and we’re here to help with that.

Blood Transfusion Mistakes Can Be Deadly
It is important to understand that blood transfusion mistakes can be deadly, and that the body can for instance attack all organs when the patient gets the wrong blood type, causing a severe reaction known as acute hemolytic transfusion reaction, which may occur anywhere from minutes after the patient gets the blood, or days or even weeks after the procedure, giving them a false sense of security.
