Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Zostavax Lawsuit Lawyer DC, MD, VA

Zostavax Lawsuit Lawyer DC, MD, VAIf you have suffered from one of the serious side effects of getting the Zostavax vaccination, it may be in your best interest to discuss your situation with a Zostavax lawsuit lawyer in DC, MD or VA

If you have become injured or ill from taking a medication with insufficient warning labels and information, you may be entitled to compensation for expenses related to your illness or injury as well as for damages such as pain and suffering.

Zostavax Lawsuit

Currently, there is a multidistrict class action lawsuit that has been filed on behalf of individuals who received the Zostavax vaccine and wound up contracting shingles – the painful condition that Zostavax was supposed to prevent – or a number of other adverse side effects of this potentially dangerous vaccination. 

If you experienced an adverse health event after receiving the Zostavax vaccine, you may qualify to become a part of an existing class action lawsuit or you may find it better for your particular situation to have a DC, MD or VA lawyer represent only you.

Shingles (herpes zoster)

Herpes zoster, commonly referred to as shingles is a viral infection that causes a painful rash. The rash can occur anywhere on the body but it is common for it to affect one side of a victim’s torso and/or face as a single stripe of blisters that wrap around the affected area. 

Shingles is caused by the varicella-zoster virus which is the same virus that causes chickenpox. Once a person has had chickenpox, the virus lies dormant in nerve tissue that is located near the spinal cord and brain. While it does not happen to everyone who has had chickenpox, the virus can reactivate in the form of painful shingles.

If you got shingles after you were vaccinated with Zostavax, a DC, MD, or VA lawyer may be able to help you with a lawsuit to help pay for expenses that are the result of you suffering from shingles, as well as for things such as your pain and suffering itself.

Zostavax

Zostavax is a live attenuated virus vaccine that is used to prevent shingles (herpes zoster) in adults age 50 and older. 

Zostavax does not treat active shingles (zoster) or the common, very painful, long-lasting pain called postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) that is a result of the shingles virus.  Zostavax does not prevent the primary chickenpox (varicella) infection.

People who got a Zostavax vaccine and then came down with shingles or other harmful side effects of this potentially dangerous medication, allege that Zostavax’s manufacturer, Merck & Co In. Pharmaceuticals, failed to warn doctors and potential patients about its possible harmful side effects.

If you are one of the many people who came down with shingles after getting vaccinated with Zostavax, a DC, MD or VA Zostavax lawsuit lawyer may be able to help you.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
