Kitchen porter awarded compensation following needlestick injury

A kitchen porter has successfully pursued a claim for compensation after suffering a needlestick injury whilst at work.

Our client was clearing away food trays from a hospital ward when he felt a sharp pain in his middle finger. He discovered that that he had been pricked by a needle that had not been properly disposed of. He was immediately seen by an occupational health professional and received a Hepatitis B vaccination and anti-viral treatment.

He also underwent tests for HIV but later received the all-clear from any infection. His employer accepted liability for the incident.

Following the injury he contacted our specialist personal injury solicitors who successfully pursued a compensation claim on his behalf. He was awarded damages for the pain and considerable stress that he suffered.
