ARE YOU SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS?
Our experienced legal team helps those who have suffered a particular kind of vaccine injury called “SIRVA.” This stands for shoulder injury related to vaccine administration, and just as it sounds, it is an injury that follows the injection of the needle into the shoulder during a vaccination. It results in sudden and ongoing pain, limited range of motion, and often damage to the shoulder structures. Sometimes the condition requires surgery to repair the damage and alleviate the pain.
Have You Suffered a SIRVA Injury?
Commonly, a person with a SIRVA injury will have little or no history of shoulder problems, and experience the onset of pain, dysfunction, or discomfort immediately, or within a very short time after the injection. It is believed that most SIRVA injuries are caused by the improper insertion or placement of the needle into shoulder area, and some may result from an immune reaction with the vaccine, causing a neurological injury.
Conditions Association with SIRVA Include:
SIRVA injuries are recognized by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. If you have experienced any of these shoulder conditions after receiving any of the covered vaccines, you may be entitled to compensation.
