Why Are There Zostavax Lawsuits?
Zostavax is a vaccination used in people who are 50 years or older that can help prevent Shingles and works by boosting your immune system to help protect against the disease. However, the vaccine is made with a small amount of weakened, but live, chicken pox virus. Individuals who have already weakened immune systems may not be able to fight off the small dose of live virus that is injected into them and in turn may sustain a variety of injuries, such as Chickenpox or Shingles itself. Additionally, the vaccine only works in about 50% of people and has been reported to only last for about six years.
What Are The Zostavax Side Effects?
Some side effects that individuals have suffered include, but are not limited to:
- Brain Injuries
- Hearing Loss
- Liver Damage
How Do I Proceed With My Lawsuit?
Individuals who have sustained injuries from Zostavax may be eligible to pursue a direct claim against the pharmaceutical manufacturer of the vaccine. These lawsuits are based on the allegation that the manufacturer failed to adequately warn physicians and their patients about the serious risks associated with the drug. In fact, approximately 36,000 adverse events have already been reported. Our firm works with experienced Zostavax lawyers who can file a lawsuit on your behalf if you have been adversely affected by the drug.
