As a Zostavax defective vaccine lawyer Tennessee has relied on for more than thirty years, I want you to know that you are not alone in your Zostavax vaccine injury.

Hundreds of people are suing Merck, the company that manufactures the popular Zostavax shingles vaccine. Shingles is a serious and painful disorder that often manifests as a rash with blisters. And Merck developed Zostavax to prevent shingles in adults 50 years and older.

Well, claimants allege that Zostavax actually caused the very thing it meant to prevent: shingles. In some cases, reports link serious health problems to the widely-used vaccine. These include vision loss, facial paralysis, heart failure, and even death.

Zostavax is given in one shot and contains a dose of the live shingles virus (herpes zoster). However, victims allege that Merck formulated the vaccine improperly, exposing them to a too-powerful dose of the live virus. Instead of triggering the immune system to fight against shingles, Zostavax allegedly caused its recipients to develop hard-to-treat, recurring viruses instead.

Merck is still making a profit from its allegedly defective vaccine.

Make no mistake: Merck has made a hefty profit from Zostavax. In fact, they’ve made billions of dollars since it came on the market in 2006. They marketed it as a safe and effective way to prevent shingles. Yet, according to the National Vaccine Information Center, “…as of August 31, 2018, there have been 46,561 reports of shingles vaccine reactions, hospitalizations, injuries and deaths following shingles vaccinations.” This is outrageous, and it’s why I’ve become a Zostavax defective vaccine lawyer TN relies on.

If you received the Zostavax vaccine and developed shingles, heart problems, vision loss, or facial paralysis within six months, call us right away for a free legal consultation.

Personal injuries like this can be devastating. This is why I am offering a free legal consultation to anyone injured by the Zostavax vaccine. We must hold Merck accountable for the pain and suffering they have caused good people who were simply trying to prevent a painful disease.

The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 does not cover the shingles vaccine. This means that an individual can sue the vaccine manufacturer directly for injuries associated with the vaccine. It also means you’ll need an experienced lawyer who knows how to navigate a complex case like this, and win. And I am proud to say that I have taken on cases like this many times, and won.
