As a Zostavax shingles vaccine lawyer serving our great state of Tennessee, I am offering a free legal consultation to anyone who has been injured by the Zostavax shingles vaccine.

By now you may have heard about the hundreds of people suing Merck. Merck manufactures the widely-used vaccine Zostavax, meant to prevent shingles in adults 50 years and older. Well, claimants are alleging that Zostavax did not prevent their shingles. They’re claiming Zostavax caused their shingles. And when you look at the facts, it’s hard to disagree. This is why I am a Zostavax shingles vaccine lawyer standing up for the people of Tennessee.

The facts you need to know about Zostavax

  • Zostavax is manufactured by a company called Merck.
  • It is a vaccine, given in one shot, developed to prevent shingles.
  • It contains a dose of the live shingles virus (herpes zoster).
  • Zostavax has been in use since 2006.
  • Reports link thousands of hospitalizations and disabilities to the vaccine.
  • Alleged injuries include shingles, chickenpox, facial paralysis, vision loss, heart failure, and death.
  • Merck has made billions of dollars in profit from its Zostavax vaccine.

The largest complaint against Merck is that they formulated the vaccine improperly. Allegedly, it contains an excessively powerful dose of the live virus. Instead of triggering the immune system to fight against shingles (a serious and painful disorder that often manifests as a rash with blisters), this too-powerful dose may have caused its recipients to develop hard-to-treat, recurring viruses instead.

While Merck is left to reap the profits of its ultra-popular vaccine, good people simply trying to prevent shingles are left injured and empty-handed.

This is why I’m offering a free legal consultation to anyone who received the Zostavax vaccine and developed shingles within six months. I want to hold Merck accountable for your personal injury.

Darrell Castle & Associates, PLLC, has a plan to get you the financial compensation you deserve.

If the Zostavax vaccine injured you or your loved one, it’s important to get an experienced lawyer. You see, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 does not cover the shingles vaccine. In other words, an individual can sue Merck directly for their injuries.

While this could mean a significant victory in court, it will also mean going up against Merck’s best legal defenses. Which is why you’ll need a lawyer who knows how to navigate a complex case like this and win. And I am proud to say that I have done that many times.

It would be our honor to serve you and your family. If you received the Zostavax vaccine and developed shingles within six months, call us at (901) 327-1212 or reach us online right away. The call is absolutely free, and we won’t make a penny unless we win your case.
