Injury Lawyers


Work With Us At No Cost

Have an Injury?

For everyone who has had serious side effects from a tetanus shot, our attorneys can help. Tetanus shots are important for preventing infections, but they can sometimes cause severe reactions like shoulder injuries or allergic reactions.

Our experienced lawyers specialize in vaccine injury cases and will help you get compensation through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). We offer free consultations, and you won’t pay any fees unless we win your case. Don’t go through this alone—contact us today for the support and justice you deserve.

What is a Tetanus shot?

A tetanus shot is an important part of keeping yourself safe and healthy. However, in the event of negative effects from a tetanus shot, it might be time to consult with an attorney. Our Tetanus shot injury lawyers specialize in seeking compensation for individuals who have suffered injuries related to the administration of a tetanus shot. The Tetanus shot, also known as a tetanus booster, is a vaccine that offers protection against the potentially fatal tetanus disease. It's an important step in maintaining your health and well-being. It is especially helpful for those engaging in manual labor or strenuous activities.

This vaccine consists of dead proteins that stimulate the production of antibodies to protect your immune system when exposed to the actual organism that causes tetanus. Although it's most commonly given in adolescence, many adults are advised to receive booster shots every ten years to maintain immunity levels.

Common Tetanus Shot Side Effects

Receiving a common tetanus shot can be beneficial in protecting a person from a serious and life-threatening illness. Yet, certain side effects may occur. As with most substances injected or ingested, mild reactions such as:

  • Redness, swelling, or pain near the area of injection
  • It is also normal to feel tired
  • Muscle stiffness in the arm

Generally, these side effects are minor and should subside within a few days without any medical intervention. Contact your doctor immediately for more severe reactions, including difficulty breathing or chest pain.

How does an injury from the tetanus shot occur?

It is not unusual to experience pain or other negative reactions after receiving a tetanus shot. In some cases, these side effects can be serious and may include the following:

If you suffered an adverse reaction or injury after receiving the tetanus vaccine, you might be entitled to compensation from a federal trust fund called the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. Call your doctor's office immediately if you have severe symptoms after getting a vaccine.

Diagnosing and Treating Tetanus Shot Injuries

Tetanus, a serious bacterial infection spread through contact with contaminated objects, can cause painful muscle contractions and severe spasms all over the body.

Although vaccinations protect us, injuries resulting from tetanus shots occur on rare but unfortunate occasions. If an individual experiences extreme pain, irritation, or swelling at the injection site for more than a few days after receiving a tetanus shot, it could indicate an injury caused by the shot and may require medical attention. Fortunately, diagnosing and treating tetanus shot injuries does not require a long process. Most often, it involves just a physical examination to identify the origin of symptoms, followed by treatment.

How we can help with your Tetanus shot claim

Injuries from vaccines 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 Lawyer, 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.
