Zostavax Injury Attorneys in Flowood

Representing Patients Injured by the Shingles Vaccine

Zostavax is a shingles vaccine that is manufactured by the prescription drug company Merck. Attorneys have begun filing lawsuits on behalf of their clients who have suffered serious injury after getting this vaccine because the company failed to warn patients of the potential risks. The attorneys at Shelton Davis, PLLC offer legal representation to clients with vaccine injuries from Zostavax. A Flowood Zostavax injury lawyer can explain your options for recovering damages for your injury.

Injuries Caused by the Shingles Vaccine

Shingles are caused by the chickenpox virus. The virus may remain dormant in the body for many years before resulting in an outbreak of shingles. This problem is most common in adults who are over the age of 50, so doctors often recommend that their older patients get vaccinated. Although shingles are certainly uncomfortable and may have some possible complications, the vaccine has been causing injury in some patients.

Patients are claiming that they have suffered serious injuries, such as:

  • Shingles
  • Liver failure
  • Blindness
  • Brain damage
  • Death

Lawsuits that have been filed on behalf of patients assert that the manufacturer failed to warn of the risks associated with the vaccine. For example, there is evidence that the manufacturer was aware that the vaccine may cause shingles, but did not disclose this information until 2014, which was 8 years after the drug was approved. When a manufacturer fails to warn of potential risks, patients may file product liability lawsuits.
