Beasley Allen attorney Mike Andrews tells NBC affiliate Alabama’s13.com the “short story” of a man who allegedly received contaminated blood from LifeSouth Community Blood Centers is “he went in for open heart surgery and came out with HIV.” A lawsuit filed May 14, 2012 in the Circuit Court of Montgomery County, Alabama, says the Plaintiff, Howard Midkiff, received a blood transfusion on October 18, 2010, during a coronary bypass grafting surgery. In May 2011, the lawsuit alleges LifeSouth discovered blood products were contaminated with HIV and notified the hospital where the product had been distributed. At that time, the blood was linked to Mr. Midkiff. He underwent blood tests and was diagnosed as HIV-positive in June 2011. Of his client, Andrews says, “He is devastated. There is really no facet of his life that an HIV infection doesn’t touch.”
