Blood Product Errors

WHEN PATIENTS ARE GIVEN THE WRONG BLOOD

When a patient needs a blood transfusion, medical professionals must act quickly and with absolute precision. If a patient is given the wrong blood product in a transfusion, the results are disastrous and often lead to death.

THE EFFECTS OF BLOOD TRANSFUSION ERRORS

Errors may lead to transfusions of blood infected with AIDS or hepatitis. Patients can also receive a transfusion of the wrong blood type, or blood that was tainted because of improper storage. At the law offices of Friedman, Domiano & Smith, we represent victims—and the families of victims who died—of blood transfusion errors. In addition to winning award settlements for our clients, our litigation has led to policy changes in hospitals.
