$271,544 – Tennessee Flu Vaccine Caused Severe Nerve Injury

As a result of the flu vaccine, a Tennessee man suffered from a severe nerve injury, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (“CIDP”). About three days after the flu shot, he felt significant leg weakness and numbness which developed into an inability to walk. He was ultimately diagnosed with CIDP.  The case was complicated by a back surgery approximately six weeks before vaccination which caused radiculopathy in the legs. After nearly two years of litigation and a hearing conducted in Memphis, TN, the Department of Health and Human Services ultimately chose to settle the case to avoid further exposure.
