Gold Law Firm, LLC., National Vaccine Injury Law Firm files Flu Vaccine Injury Claim

Flu Vaccine Injury Claim Filed in Vaccine Court (United States Court of Federal Claims) alleging that vaccine triggered Brachial Plexus Injury (Parsonage-Turner Syndrome)

Gold law Firm, LLC, the national vaccine injury law firm recently filed a vaccine petition for a 52-year old Massachusetts woman who had a severe reaction to the Flu Vaccine resulting in a diagnosis of brachial neuritis (parsonage-turner syndrome). The case, filed in the Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C., sought recovery under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program..

“This case is a striking example of the injuries and adverse reactions that can occur as a result of the flu vaccine,” says Howard Gold, a leading Vaccine injury attorney.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the flu vaccine is designed to protect young and old alike from contracting the flu, which can have devastating affects on the infirmed and elderly and can be debihlitating to otherwise healthy individuals, leading to more severe conditions.

In this most recent case, 17-vv-344. SECRETARY OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, the Petitioner received the Flu Shot and within several hours began to experience pain in her arm, neck and shoulder. After enduring painful diagnostic tests and treatment, the Petitioner was diagnosed with brachial neuritis(parsonage turner syndrome), an uncommon neurological disorder characterized by rapid onset of severe pain in the shoulder and arm.   These reactions, along with shoulder injury related to vaccine administration (SIRVA) and other vaccine injury reactions are continually reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) as occuring after the Flu Vaccine.  “I strongly believe that children and adults alike should be receiving ALL of their mandatory vaccinations. However, it’s important to talk to your health care practitioner about the risks,” states Gold, who has been handling Vaccine cases for 19 years.

Gold also says that there is nothing inherently wrong with the Flu Vaccine but that each person is different and reacts differently to each vaccination. That is why it’s essential that the public be aware of a Program intended to compensate them if they do, in fact, have a vaccine reaction.

Petitioners have three (3) years from the onset of the vaccine injury (or two years from date of death) to file a claim in the Vaccine Court, specifically known as the United States Court of Federal Claims. Gold states that the “Program is not used as much as it could be because the American public is just not aware of it. I receive several calls a week from individuals who cannot obtain compensation because the deadline has passed. They just found out about it too late. We all need to do a better job in getting the word out to the public that the Program exists.”  More information is available on vaccine injuries at
