Needlestick compensation awards

The damages award to any needlestick claim victim is really assessed on a case by case basis. However, in cases such as this there is often compensation for the emotional and psychological impact that the injury has had on the person. Find out what you should do if you are injured by a needlestick.

Other heads of damage may include:

  • Damages for the injury itself that includes the pain and suffering caused. In the majority of claim this is purely for the pin prick itself. However, this would also include the psychological injury and stress that a person has suffered as it may be months before a person receives the “all clear”. It is rare to find that a person has contracted a viral infection such as HIV, Hepatitis B and C but if they do then this would be compensated for as well;
  • Loss of earnings, bonus and commission;
  • Medication charges such as sleeping tablets or anti-depressants;
  • The cost of counselling and other therapy for the psychological damage caused;
  • Travelling expenses
