Vaccine Shoulder Injury/ SIRVA Lawyer
Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration (SIRVA) is a serious disorder caused by administration of flu shots in the upper arm. Learn how you or a loved one can receive compensation as the result of suffering a SIRVA injury from a flu vaccination.
Vaccines frequently cause shoulder pain that can be prolonged and debilitating. When vaccine-related shoulder pain is severe, limits shoulder flexibility, and leads to development of frozen shoulder syndrome or other shoulder injuries, doctors may diagnose a person recently vaccinated with SIRVA, or Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration. SIRVA results from inflammation of shoulder structures, such as the bursa, ligaments and tendons, from a vaccination. Most SIRVA cases involve people who have had influenza shots injected into the arm’s deltoid muscle. But, any vaccination given in the shoulder can cause a SIRVA injury. Further, many doctors do not understand SIRVA injuries. So, even if your doctor does not recognize it as being related to a vaccination, if the problems started within 48-hours of the vaccination, then it is most-likely a SIRVA injury.
Symptoms and Treatment of Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration
Severe and often incapacitating shoulder pain is the main symptom of SIRVA. In addition, other shoulder problems may emerge from SIRVA, including rotator cuff injuries, tendinitis, and joint injuries. Although physical therapy and pain medication may help relieve SIRVA symptoms, many people continue suffering pain and extreme stiffness in their shoulder. For some, steroid injections and even surgery is the only alternative to repairing damage inflicted in the shoulder by vaccinations.
What You Can Do If You are Diagnosed with SIRVA Following a Vaccination
The first thing you should do is contact a SIRVA lawyer experienced in litigating vaccine injury cases in Federal Vaccine Court (U.S. Court of Federal Claims). Filing a SIRVA injury claim not only involves compiling large amounts of documentation, but also requires knowledge of specific legal processes involved with vaccine injury claims. Lawyers who are experienced in handling vaccine injuries are familiar with statutes of limitations on claims, and they know which experts to contact who specialize in vaccine injuries, how much compensation should be paid for a vaccine injury, and how to prepare the necessary paperwork to facilitate the VICP process. To prove SIRVA is due to a vaccination, a vaccine injury attorney will obtain all medical records regarding their client’s past and present health and submit these documents to the court as evidence. Further, an experienced lawyer will present the evidence in a manner which ensures the best outcome possible for the SIRVA claim.
Be aware there is a limited time period during which you can file a SIRVA vaccine injury claim in Federal Vaccine Court. The sooner you contact an experienced SIRVA lawyer, the better your chance is of being awarded reasonable compensation for your injuries and damages.
