AIDS and Blood Transfusions

With advances in medicine, many routine hospital stays or medical procedures involve blood transfusions. Recent cases, however, have shown that this procedure can lead to serious complications. In some cases, infection with incurable HIV/AIDS has occurred.

In a recent announcement in India, Mumbai's AIDS control organization reported that at least 85 people in the city have been infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, from blood transfusions in the last three years alone.

HIV can be spread by blood transfusion when an infected blood donor provides blood and blood banks and hospitals fail to properly screen it. Once the blood is transfused to a hospital patient, that patient is at very high risk of developing the virus as well.

In the United States, Americans have the right to bring legal action when they are infected with HIV or other blood-borne diseases through blood transfusions. In Texas, a TX Personal Injury Attorney can work with you to help make you whole.

Throughout India, according to the British Broadcasting Corporation, more than 2,200 people contracted HIV from blood transfusions in the 17 months to May 2016.

While India's medical system is not as consistently sophisticated as the United States, cases have surfaced in recent years of similar transmission of HIV/AIDS and other serious diseases throughout the country. Most of these cases were the result of negligence at hospitals and blood banks.
