How long do I have to file a Claim or Case after Vaccinations?
With respect to a vaccine-related injury, the statute of limitations requires
that you file a claim with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims within 3 years
from the onset of first adverse symptoms post vaccination. In the event
of a vaccine-related death, a claim must be filed no later than 2 years
from the date of death.
What Is Transverse Myelitis?
Transverse myelitis is the inflammation of the spinal cord and may occur
as a result of a vaccination. The source and type of vaccination are often
disputed—it may be linked to a reaction to the flu vaccine or hepatitis
B, as well as other types of vaccinations.
Transverse myelitis affects the body in the following ways:
- The spinal cord becomes inflamed and damages myelin, which offers protection
for the nerve fibers.
- When nerve fibers become damaged, the signals from the brain become disrupted.
- The patient begins experiencing the symptoms, including muscle weakness
Other symptoms of transverse myelitis:
- Lower back pain
- Abnormal or no feeling in the toes and feet
- Loss of bowel control or movement
- Urinary retention
Patients may obtain recovery for transverse myelitis and other
vaccine related illnesses from The
National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). This is a government-run program that provides individuals financial
compensation after being injured due to certain vaccines. Proving a vaccine
caused an illness is complicated. That is why it is so important to have
a knowledgeable and trusted vaccine injury lawyer on your side.
