Hepatitis A Vaccine Injury Attorney

What is Hepatitis A?

Hepatitis A is a viral infection of the liver that is spread through feces‑infected food/water or close contact with a person already infected by the virus. It is a more common problem in parts of the world that suffer from poor sanitation and a shortage of safe water sources.

In the United States, hepatitis A vaccines were first administered in the mid-1990’s—initially to children in high‑risk areas and then to children living in regions of increasing infection levels. When paired with a booster injection, hepatitis A immunizations are effective for an estimated 20 years. For children, the recommended age for a hepatitis A vaccination is between one and two years old. It is also recommended for non‑immunized adults who will be traveling outside the country.

What Kind of Injuries Can a Hepatitis A Vaccination Cause?

It is not uncommon to suffer soreness, headaches, loss of appetite and fatigue following a hepatitis A vaccination. Generally, these symptoms will disappear after a couple of days. In rare instances, severe and life‑threatening allergic reactions can develop.

If you or your child experienced such a reaction following a hepatitis A vaccination, we would like to hear from you. Contact us today to see how we can help with your case. Working with our team is completely free of charge!

Our vaccine injury attorneys can provide affordable legal advocacy for individuals who have suffered from severe vaccine injuries. Let us represent you in court, allowing you to focus on your recovery.

Hepatitis A Vaccines and Shoulder Injuries

If you were administered a Hepatitis A vaccine six (6) months ago and you are still experiencing symptoms, it may be an indication that something is wrong. Ifyou are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may have suffered a vaccine-related shoulder injury:

  • Allergic reaction – anaphylaxis or anaphylactic shock
  • GBS
  • CIDP
  • Cellulitis
  • Lumps
  • Nodules
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Injuries to nerves at the injection site

Other possible complications include brachial neuritis, tendonitis, and adhesive capsulitis. Our firm can help you file a claim for your shoulder injury so that you may obtain the monetary compensation you deserve.

Common Adverse Reactions Following Hepatitis A Vaccination

Adverse vaccine reactions are most common in children between one and two; they can also impact at-risk individuals. The vaccine protects from diseases but can also lead to severe adverse reactions and long-term health complications. Severe allergic reactions and anaphylactic shocks are also possible. These can typically be treated at local area hospitals.

Guillain-Barre syndrome

This is an autoimmune condition that attacks the nervous system. It can lead to nerve damage. Often, sufferers experience symptoms like tingling, weakness, and numbness. In some severe cases, you can experience paralysis. Many times, it impacts people who are recovering from an infection. If you suffer GBS after a Hepatitis A vaccine, then you should consult with our nationwide vaccine injury attorney.

Other reactions and side effects that have been documented include seizures, neuropathy, and multiple sclerosis. There is still debate about whether these injuries are correlated to the vaccine. However, these injuries have been reported in the Vaccine Injury Adverse Event Reporting System. Various federal health agencies use these reports to monitor vaccine safety. If you have been diagnosed with any of these, speak to a Hepatitis A vaccine injury attorney.

Hepatitis A: Understanding Your Legal Rights and Options

Aside from the health implications of Hepatitis A, you can also suffer monetary losses. Some financial recovery you may be eligible for includes:

  • Medical costs for the treatment of the injury and physical rehabilitation
  • Diminished earning capacity in some instances
  • Lost wages if your condition causes you to miss work
  • Pain and suffering

You can pursue compensation from the federal government. As you might imagine, this is a challenging process, but we can help you assess your damages and file a claim. Speak to the team at Jeffrey S. Pop & Associates.

Legal Considerations: Hepatitis A Transmission and Vaccine Liabilities

Suppose you or your child have experienced adverse reactions to Hepatitis A you must take immediate action. You will have a 36-month timeframe to make a claim. This is three years after your vaccination. We can file a Petition for Compensation with the Vaccine Court. The respondent in the petition is the United States Department of Health and Human Services. The Department of Justice represents them.

Upon reviewing your documentation, the Department of Justice can either process a settlement or take your claim to litigation. The best route for your case will depend on individual factors. Our vaccine injury attorney will use our resources to review your medical documents and craft a fruitful claim.

The National Vaccine Injury and Compensation Program

In 1986, Congress established the National Vaccine Injury and Compensation Program to compensate anyone who suffered injuries from the vaccination. It is also supposed to make it easier for victims to file a claim and obtain compensation. Even so, it is still an arduous process. The claim can be filed with the Office of Special Masters in Washington, D.C., or the United States Court of Federal Claims.

A Special Master will hear the case and determine whether a settlement or litigation is best. The national fund provides compensation for your past and future medical expenses. You also have compensation for lost wages and pain and suffering. The program covers a slew of vaccines such as:

  • Polio live virus
  • Tetanus Toxoid
  • Trivalent influenza vaccines
  • Polio inactivated vaccine
  • Measles-mumps-rubella
  • Hepatitis A and B vaccines
  • Human papillomavirus vaccines (HPV)
