Needlestick/sharp injury claims

Anyone can be hurt by a sharp object, but needlestick injuries are especially a concern for people who work in disposal services, social care, the NHS or the private medical sector.

However, this type of work injury is not limited to any particular field. Sharp injuries often affect people who operate within the construction industry, due to hazards such as protruding nails.

A puncture wound can be distressing enough but there is also a risk of infection.

In some cases, infections such as hepatitis, tetanus or even HIV can be passed on via a small cut or prick from a sharp object.  

If you suffer a needlestick or sharps injury in work, you could be entitled to claim compensation if your employer:

  • Failed to assess a risk in the workplace
  • Failed to provide proper training
  • Failed to provide adequate personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Failed to make sure the working area was safe
  • Failed to properly secure or label needles and other sharps
  • Failed to ensure that work equipment or machinery was safe
