Failure to Immunise Against Hepatitis B

Our client the son of a Hepatitis B sufferer fell into a high risk category and should have been immunised against the disease.

A hospital he attended was aware that he may well contract this disease from his mother. Despite this knowledge there was a failure to protect him and which resulted in our client suffering from hepatitis B. 

There was the possibility that at some stage in the future our client may develop liver cancer but it was too early to determine. However, expert evidence suggested that even if our client developed liver cancer it may well have occurred in any event and therefore it was possible to resolve the claim with our client accepting the sum of £25,000.00.
