Leigh Day is currently investigating claims by blood transfusion NHS patients who were infected with Hepatitis C virus (HCV) after receiving contaminated blood in the 1970s, 1980s and early 1990s.
We have been contacted by many people, including family members of loved ones who have passed away, who were either directly or indirectly infected with HCV after the provision of blood by the NHS.
We act for individuals, but often we find that a problem faced by one person is not an isolated case so we launch a group action.
These group claims help us build a stronger case and our clients benefit from knowing they’re not alone, coming to terms with what’s happened with fellow sufferers is comforting and can empower people to fight back and make sure everyone gets the help they need.
We are based in London, Manchester and Liverpool.
Our clients have been campaigning for many years for answers to their questions, the most burning question being how could contaminated blood have been given to so many NHS patients? We are taking steps to ensure that the surviving victims, and their families, are able to move forward with their lives
Leigh Day is a leading law firm with a track record of taking on governments, businesses and powerful institutions on behalf of individuals. We believe everyone should have access to justice.
