Vaccine

Those who have suffered an injury from the Zostavax (shingles) vaccine remain ineligible for compensation through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP).  However, new information has come to light and victims may be eligible to pursue a direct claim against the pharmaceutical manufacturer.

We are working with a law firm that is currently investigating the possibility of lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies involved in the production of the Zostavax (shingles) vaccination.

Zostavax was developed as a vaccination against the chickenpox and shingles viruses, but the relatively new vaccine has been found to be ineffective, causing a range of very serious side effects. The drug is designed to keep the virus dormant and prevent the development of shingles, however, it seems to be causing the opposite effect.

 

If you or a loved one has suffered any of the following injuries within a year of receiving the Zostavax vaccination, contact us today for a free consultation:

  • Chickenpox
  • Shingles (herpes zoster)

Effective Immediately: The Statute of Limitations for Shoulder Injuries and Guillain-Barre Syndrome Cases Has Been Extended [Retroactively] to March 27th, 2009.

Effective March 21, 2017, the vaccine injury table was amended to include: Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) from an influenza vaccine; and Shoulder injury cases (SIRVA).   This means that someone diagnosed with a shoulder injury or GBS following a flu vaccine as far back as March 20, 2009, could be entitled to money damages.   Accordingly, if you or someone you know had GBS or a shoulder injury from vaccination at any time from March 20, 2009 forward, and you or that person either did not know about the vaccine program in time to file a claim or the claim was filed within the past 8 years...

We are Seeing a Definitive Increase in Shoulder Injury (“SIRVA”) Claims

SIRVA (“shoulder injury related to vaccine administration”) is caused by an injury to the musculoskeletal structures of the shoulder – ligaments, tendons, bursae –  due to trauma from a needle entering the bursa and/or rotator cuff, resulting in an inflammatory response. The injury is typically the result of injecting too high on the shoulder. Rather than entering the muscle tissue in the portion of the shoulder between the elbow and the joint, the needle enters the joint space, resulting in a physical trauma injury to the shoulder.

Max Muller of My Vaccine Lawyer Wins Compensation for a Victim of Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (“CIDP”)

Attorney Max Muller was retained by a man who suffered from CIDP as the result of a flu shot. Approximately three days after vaccination, he felt significant leg weakness and numbness which developed into an inability to walk over the following few days. He was ultimately diagnosed with CIDP and continues to undergo Intravenous Immunoglobulin (“IVIG”) treatments more than three years after diagnosis. Attorney Max Muller filed a petition in the Court of Federal Claims seeking compensation from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.  The case was complicated by the client's prior back injury from which he experienced leg weakness and tingling for...

An Article from The Washington Post feat. Paul Brazil

Last December during a routine physical exam, I received a vaccination to protect against several strains of pneumonia. It hurt, more so than the usual injection. In the days that followed, the pain in my left shoulder worsened. Initially, I dismissed it as typical post-shot soreness. But it didn’t go away. All these months later, it still hurts. My orthopedist says I have subacromial bursitis, which is a chronic inflammation and excess fluid buildup in the bursa (a thin, lubricated sac that prevents friction between a bone and surrounding soft tissue) separating the acromion bone at the top of the shoulder from the rotator cuff.

Vaccine Injury Payouts Rise

Below is an article from the Wall Street Journal regarding the rise of vaccine injury payouts over the past few years — specifically those involving shoulder injuries related to vaccine administration (“SIRVA”).  Our firm is part of the reason for this rise, as we have dedicated our practice to the representation of hundreds of clients suffering from SIRVA injuries over the past few years.  If you or someone you know has suffered a shoulder injury from vaccination, please contact us for a free case evaluation.   

California Bill Would Require Nearly All Public School Children to be Vaccinated

On Thursday, California’s assembly approved a hotly contested bill requiring that nearly all public schoolchildren be vaccinated.  The bill will now be set forth before Governor Jerry Brown.

The bill aims to increase immunization rates after a measles outbreak linked to Disneyland in December sickened over 100 people in the U.S. and Mexico.

A New Treatment for Guillain-Barre Syndrome in Phase II Clinical Trial

Guillian-Barre Syndrome (GBS) is the most common cause of acute neuromuscular weakness in the Western World. GBS is a rapidly progressive disorder of the perihperal nerves often leading to sever paresthesia of the limbs. Most GBS patients also have sensory disturbances such as numbness and tingling and some can have issues involving the respiratory muscles, leading to breathing issues. Up to 30 percent of patients are left with a permanent disability, including some who cannot walk unassisted.

Transverse Myelitis from Vaccination

Transverse Myelitis can be caused by various vaccinations including influenza, human papillomavirus virus (“HPV”), hepatitis B, hepatitis A, measles-mumps-rubella (“MMR”), meningococcal and diphtheria-tetanus (“DtaP”).  Specifically, a vaccination can trigger an autoimmune response targeting the myelin basic protein that provides a protective sheath around the body’s nerve fibers because of the structural similarity between components of the vaccine and the spinal cord.
