Have You Been Exposed to Hepatitis?
Staying healthy can be hard enough without the fear of being exposed to contagious viruses against your will. Unfortunately, some healthcare providers and food service companies are not careful enough to protect their patients and customers from exposure to dangerous viruses like hepatitis. Sidestepping safety protocol may help a company complete its tasks faster, but efficiency doesn’t matter if it puts clients at risk of contracting dangerous illnesses.
A lifetime of caution can be thrown out the window if you contract hepatitis due to someone else’s negligence. Although the different strains of hepatitis affect people very differently, all can result in increased medical bills. If you think you might have been exposed to hepatitis, it is important to get tested. Some types of hepatitis may not show any symptoms, so it can be a good idea to get tested even if you do not feel sick.
If you were exposed to hepatitis at a business or healthcare facility, you might be entitled to a significant financial settlement.
If you were exposed to or contracted hepatitis as a result of someone else’s negligence, you deserve justice. An experienced attorney can help you understand your options, including the health insurance claims process and the possibility of filing a lawsuit.
