Gold law Firm, LLC, a national vaccine injury law firm recently filed a vaccine petition for a 74-year old Florida man who had a severe vaccine injury reaction to the Flu Vaccine resulting in Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP), a neurological disorder – that targets the bodies nerves. 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 vaccinations,” 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 effects on the infirmed and elderly and can be debilitating to otherwise healthy individuals, leading to more severe conditions, including Pneumonia.
In this most recent case, 17-vv-00061v. SECRETARY OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, the Petitioner received the Flu Vaccine and shortly thereafter began to experience tingling and numbness in his lower extremities. After a somewhat lengthy process he was diagnosed with Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) and responded partially to IVIG therapy. (Learn more about CIDP here http://www.gbs-cidp.org/) He has made an incomplete recovery and continues to have residual weakness and numbness from his flu vaccine injury. CIDP and other reactions are continually reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) as occurring after the Flu Vaccine. See, http://www.vaers.hhs.gov. “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 20 years.
Gold, a vaccine injury lawyer and head of the Gold Law Firm, a national vaccine injury law firm 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, suffer a vaccine injury.
Petitioners have three (3) years from the onset of the injury (or two years from date of death) to file a claim. 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 at least 5 calls a month 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.”
