Varicella (Chickenpox) Vaccine Injury Attorney

Put Years of Experience in Your Corner

Varicella (more frequently known as chickenpox) is one of the most common and contagious childhood diseases. It can be indirectly transmitted through the air or directly transmitted through contact with fluid from an infected blister. Though chickenpox causes significant discomfort—primarily through the eruption of itchy blisters—it rarely causes significant problems to healthy children. Nevertheless, about 5 in every 1,000 cases of varicella will cause hospitalization. In extremely rare cases, chickenpox can be fatal.

Because varicella is so contagious, vaccination against chickenpox is required of all children as a prerequisite to entering school. Though chickenpox generally occurs only once, the varicella virus remains in the body into adulthood and possibly triggers the development of other illnesses who have had a history of chickenpox. This disease can be especially severe in adults and in anyone with a compromised immune system.

Our attorneys can provide affordable legal advocacy to individuals who have suffered vaccine injuries. Let us go to court for you so that you can focus on recovering.

The Dangers of Vaccination

Being vaccinated is much safer than becoming infected. Most people who receive the vaccination experience no problems, but there are possible side effects. Mild side effects include fever, mild rash, and soreness, redness, or swelling at the injection site. Serious side effects of the chickenpox vaccine are very rare. They are more likely to occur after the first dose than the second.

Possible severe reactions include:

  • Shoulder Injury
  • Seizure (jerking and staring spell)
  • Severe brain reactions
  • Low blood count
  • Anaphylactic reaction
  • Encephalitis
  • Neuropathy
  • Death
  • ITP (Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura)

Pain at an injection site? You may have a shoulder injury.

It is normal to experience swelling or pain at the site of injection. Other effects of injection include sharp shoulder pain, rotator cuff injury, lumps, nodules, and tenderness at the site of the injection. However, it is not normal to experience these symptoms more than six (6) months after the injection was administered. If you still experiencing these symptoms, you may be entitled to compensation for your shoulder injury. Our firm can launch an investigation into your vaccine case and help you file a claim that best suits your needs.

According to the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) statistics report, nearly 53% of the claims filed for chickenpox vaccine-related injuries have been compensated. More About Shoulder Injuries [+]
