Elkhart, IN asked in Personal Injury for Indiana

Q: Can i sue the plasma donation center?

So, I am not new to donating by any means. I used to allllllll the time in HS. I go to BioLife to donate for the first since I graduated. Well, the nurse had to keep coming back and messing with the machine(about 3 times) then a different nurse comes to me and says "let me monkey around with you for a minute" readjusted the needle. Hurt a little, not bad. But then not even 5 mins after. She's pulling the the needle out and im feeling so much pressure in my arm, feels like its just going pop! Ended up getting a hematoma. The day of and 2 days after. I couldn't move my arm at all. And now I can move it, but it hurts. And my whole arm is bruised. And I have a clot in my forearm

A: An Indiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. I'm sorry for your ordeal. But based on the brief description, it isn't clear if the damages are of a fleeting nature or something of significant impact that would be of a lasting duration. If the impact of the incident is transient in nature, where in the immediate future most traces of injury will be gone without meaningful medical documentation, it could be difficult to establish a case based on that. That's something that a doctor, and not an attorney, would be able to express an opinion on. You could reach out to Indiana attorneys to discuss in further detail to get their perspective on it. Good luck
