The latest Government figures suggest that around 215,000 people in the UK have a chronic Hepatitis C infection.
Hepatitis C is a largely blood-borne virus that can seriously damage the liver of the person infected. According to the Hepatitis C Trust, around 20% of those initially infected with the virus will defeat it in the first stage of the infection. The remaining 80% will go on to develop a chronic infection.
The consequences of contracting Hepatitis C can be severe – physically, emotionally and financially. But with the proper advice it is possible to limit the impact to some degree. If the infection was negligently transmitted to you, this could include making a claim for compensation.
You may also help to prevent the same thing from happening to someone else.
