FLU SHOT - FROZEN SHOULDER

$106,160

An Alabama woman suffered various shoulder injuries after a flu shot. She was diagnosed with severe adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder) and treated with steroid medication and physical therapy.

HPV VACCINE - TRANSVERSE MYELITIS

$140,000

An Oklahoma child who suffered Transverse Myelitis following an HPV vaccination. Approximately two weeks after receiving the second dose of the Gardasil vaccination, the client was admitted to the emergency room with severe weakness in his left leg.

FLU SHOT - GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME

$162,500

A North Carolina man suffered Guillain-Barre Syndrome after a flu shot. About three weeks after receiving the flu shot, the client began experiencing numbness and tingling in both feet.

A South Carolina man suffered a torn rotator cuff requiring surgery after a meningitis vaccination.

He was later diagnosed with a rotator cuff tear, subacromial impingement and bursitis by his orthopedic surgeon. He underwent a left shoulder arthroscopy with debridement, subacromial decompression and rotator cuff repair, which greatly improved his symptoms.

FLU SHOT - FROZEN SHOULDER

$110,000

A California woman suffered adhesive capsulitis caused by improper administration of a flu shot. The client participated in physical therapy for several weeks. When she did not improve with therapy, her orthopedic surgeon recommended arthroscopic surgery.

Unfortunately all conservative treatment failed, leading to an arthroscopic surgery to repair the damage.

CHICKENPOX VACCINE - ANAPHYLAXIS

$150,203

A Virginia child suffered an anaphylactic reaction to the chickenpox vaccination. The initial reaction occurred within only hours of the vaccination. The auto-immune response led to several food allergies. The client must now carry an Epipen at all times.

A Delaware woman suffered Guillain-Barre Syndrome after a flu shot at her local pharmacy. The client’s initial symptoms, including numbness and tingling in her arms, started approximately three weeks post-vaccination.
