Sauder Schelkopf has significant experience litigating cases on behalf of individuals who were exposed to infectious diseases through the negligence of others such as hospitals, healthcare facilities, and food establishments.
We recently settled a case where we represented hundreds of individuals who were exposed to Hepatitis A at a Hardee’s in Charlotte, North Carolina.We are litigating similar cases in Washington and Denver where thousands of patients were exposed to Hepatitis and HIV. In Washington, an emergency room nurse allegedly infected with Hepatitis C was injecting herself with a partial dose of narcotics intended for her patients and then injecting the remaining dose with the same needle into her patients. Read about it here. In Denver, a surgical technician exposed nearly 3,000 patients to HIV. Read about it in the Denver Post.
