As a Zostavax lawsuit 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.
In fact, hundreds of people are suing Merck, the company that manufactures the popular Zostavax shingles vaccine. Claimants are accusing the Zostavax vaccination of causing the very thing it was meant to prevent: shingles. Shingles is a serious and painful disorder that often manifests as a rash with blisters.
Where did Zostavax go wrong?
Victims allege that Merck formulated the vaccine improperly, exposing them to an excessively powerful dose of the live virus. Instead of triggering the immune system to fight against shingles, this too-powerful dose caused its recipients to develop hard-to-treat, recurring viruses instead.
In some cases, reports link serious health problems to the widely-used vaccine. These include vision loss, facial paralysis, heart failure, and even death.
But just like so many other Big Pharma companies out there, that didn’t stop Merck from making a profit. They made billions of dollars off the Zostavax vaccine 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.”
Personal injuries like this can be devastating. This is why I am offering a free legal consultation to anyone who developed shingles after receiving a Zostavax vaccination. We must hold Merck accountable for the pain and suffering they have caused good people who were simply trying to prevent a painful disease.
Contact us today for your completely free legal consultation.
You may be eligible for financial compensation for your Zostavax injury. And it would be my honor to tell you our plan to get you the justice you deserve.
If you received a Zostavax vaccination and then developed shingles, Bell’s palsy, heart failure, or if your loved one passed away within six months of receiving the Zostavax shot, contact us right away.
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, how to take on Big Pharma’s lawyers, and win. And I am proud to say that I have taken on cases like this many times, and won.
