What Causes Transverse Myelitis?
Transverse Myelitis is a serious medical condition that can devastate the victim. It occurs when inflammation affects the spinal cord, which can cause pain, paralysis, and other symptoms. Victims of Transverse Myelitis may be eligible to receive compensation for their injuries depending on the circumstances of their case. If you or a loved one has been affected by Transverse Myelitis, it is important to understand your legal rights and options.
Transverse Myelitis is an inflammatory disease of the spinal cord caused by an autoimmune reaction. It occurs when the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy nerve cells in the spinal cord, which causes inflammation and damage to the affected area.
Hear Cheryl's Vaccine
Cheryl suffered SIRVA (shoulder injury related to vaccine administration) following a flu shot. Her vaccine injury claim was filed in the VICP by vaccine lawyer Max Muller where she obtained a settlement for her injury, lost wages and out of pocket expenses.
Vaccines Linked to Transverse Myelitis
In some cases, vaccines have been linked to Transverse Myelitis, though the exact cause is unknown. Vaccines that have been associated with the condition include:
- Hepatitis B
- Measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR)
- Human papillomavirus (HPV)
While the risk of developing Transverse Myelitis after receiving a vaccine is very low, it's important to speak with your doctor if you're concerned about any potential side effects.
Diagnosing and Treating Transverse Myelitis
Transverse Myelitis is typically diagnosed through a physical exam, imaging tests such as an MRI or CT scan, and a spinal tap. Treatment for Transverse Myelitis usually involves medications to reduce inflammation in the spinal cord, physical therapy to strengthen muscles and improve coordination, and occupational therapy to help with everyday activities. In some cases, surgery may be required to treat the condition.
How We Can Help With Your Transverse Myelitis Injury
Transverse Myelitis can change your life, and you may be qualified to receive financial compensation through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).
After lawsuits against vaccine companies and healthcare providers in the 1980s threatened to reduce U.S. vaccination rates and cause a resurgence of vaccine-preventable diseases, the VICP was created.
At My Vaccine Lawyers, our team can help you file a claim and guide you through the entire process with the VICP if you have suffered from vaccine-related injuries.
