Guillain-Barre Syndrome and How We Can Help

Featured Image

When you cannot bend your shoulder or index fingers, daily activities become a major challenge. One of our clients was unable to put her contact lenses in, hold a pen, or even type on a computer. It turned out she had a mysterious disease, Guillain-Barre Syndrome ("GBS"), caused by a flu shot. Guillain-Barre (gee-YAHN-buh-RAY) Syndrome is a rare disorder in which your body's immune system attacks your nerves. Weakness and tingling in your extremities are usually the first symptoms. These sensations can quickly spread, eventually paralyzing your whole body. Although reported cases remain relatively rare, awareness of the link between Guillain-Barre Syndrome and the flu shot is growing. Our firm has helped clients obtain compensation for vaccine-related GBS. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, it is important to determine whether the condition is related to the flu vaccination. If your injury was a result of the flu vaccine, you may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages and reimbursement of medical expenses under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program ("NVICP"). We are the premier firm for you or someone you love who has been diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome. Our law firm is dedicated to representing individuals that have suffered a vaccine injury, such as a shoulder injury from a flu shot. Our mission is simply to achieve the best possible results for our clients. For more information about seeking compensation for Guillain-Barre Syndrome that results following a flu shot, contact our offices today for a free case evaluation.
