Hemophilia is a group of genetic disorders which limit the body’s ability to form blood clots. In practice, this means that people suffering from hemophilia continue to bleed from an injury when others would have stopped. Someone who suffers from hemophilia requires immediate, specialized medical attention in the event of an injury. In the school or workplace, failure to quickly seek medical attention for an injured hemophiliac can lead to charges of negligence.

If you or someone you love suffers from hemophilia and was seriously injured because of negligent employers or caretakers, you may be able to seek damages.

Impact of Hemophilia

When someone is injured who does not suffer from this condition, his or her body responds to the loss of blood with chemicals that cause the bleeding to slow down. The hereditary genetic mutations that cause hemophilia reduce the body’s ability to produce these chemicals, meaning that blood continues to flow. Hemophiliacs don’t bleed any faster than other people; their bodies are just much slower to reduce the blood loss.

This disorder is nothing new. Queen Victoria of England famously passed the genes for hemophilia on to several of her children. Anyone who has heard of hemophilia realizes how serious a condition it is, and anyone who suffers from it should identify themselves in the event of an injury. Prompt treatment with clotting agents can help the patient’s body stop the bleeding, but neglecting an injured employee with hemophilia can have serious consequences.
