SIRVA

The Vaccine Injury Table is a chart that outlines vaccines and possible vaccine injuries that are recognized as compensable cases by the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). While vaccine injuries not listed on the table may also be compensated, if a vaccine injury fits within the parameters set forth in the Vaccine Injury Table, the burden shifts to the government to prove that the vaccine did not cause the injury. These “table cases” are often easier to prove in Court.

As of late 2016, two common vaccine injuries, Guillain-Barre Syndrome (“GBS”) and SIRVA (“Shoulder Injury Resulting from Vaccine Administration”), were not listed on the Vaccine Injury Table, although these cases have been compensated for years.

However, due to the publication of various uncontroverted medical literature establishing the legitimacy of these vaccine related injuries, a recent amendment has been made by the Centers for Disease Control (“CDC”) to the Vaccine Injury Table to include SIRVA and GBS (as a result of the seasonal influenza vaccination). This means that certain SIRVA and GBS cases that fit within the parameters of the table may be streamlined through the program and easier to prove in Court.

If you or a loved one has suffered from SIRVA or GBS as a result of a vaccination, please contact us immediately for a free consultation. Our attorneys have successfully litigated hundreds of SIRVA and GBS cases in the VICP.  The Program pays for attorney’s fees and costs so there is no financial burden on the client. We look forward to hearing from you!

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...

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.

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.

Shoulder Injuries Related to Vaccine Administration (SIRVA)

During the March 8, 2012 Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines, Dr. Tom Ryan, Medical Officer from the Division of Vaccine Injury Compensation, presented regarding shoulder injuries following vaccine administration.  Dr. Ryan indicated that evidence convincingly supports a causal relationship between any vaccine that is injected with a needle and shoulder injury.  The injury is caused by the injection itself, not by the specific vaccine injected.
