We successfully represented a woman who contracted Hepatitis-C after receiving spinal epidural injections at a local pain clinic for back treatment following a motor vehicle accident. After an investigation by the NYC Department of Health and information we obtained through litigation, we were able to demonstrate that the pain clinic and its anesthesiologists, in an effort to save money, were improperly re-using Propofol single dose vials upon multiple patients at the pain clinic which caused our client to contract Hepatitis-C.
Additionally, we were able to demonstrate numerous other lapses in hygienic technique at the pain clinic which may have contributed to other patient’s developing serious injuries and/or infections.
The case settled for an undisclosed amount just prior to jury selection.
If you believe you or someone you know may have developed Hepatitis-c as a result of treatment rendered at a hospital or other medical facility, please call us to set up a consultation.
