Attorney Max Muller was retained by a woman who suffered a shoulder injury following a flu shot and pneumonia vaccine. Immediately following the vaccination, she felt intense left upper arm pain and swelling and developed redness, swelling and a lump at the vaccination sites.
Her pain persisted and she developed wound infections at the injection sites which were later diagnosed as cellulitis. She was also diagnosed with tendonitis, bursitis and a rotator cuff tear through a subsequent MRI. She was eventually forced to undergo a surgical rotator cuff repair when conservative treatment failed to provide relief.
Attorney Max Muller filed a petition in the Court of Federal Claims seeking compensation from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. After nearly a year of litigation, the Department of Health and Human Services conceded that Mr. Muller had proven entitlement to damages on behalf of his client. The compensation package included a six-figure settlement for pain and suffering plus reimbursement of out of pocket medical expenses.
