Guillain-Barré Syndrome and Vaccines

The flu vaccine is most commonly linked to Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) according to the Journal of the American Medical Association. 88% of GBS cases that our legal team has represented were associated with getting a flu shot. Studies indicate that approximately 70% of HPV vaccine recipients who developed GBS symptoms did so within six weeks of vaccination. Other immunizations, such as MMR and Tetanus, have also been linked to GBS in some cases.

As an experienced leader in these types of lawsuits, we were confident the firm would have the expertise. However, what surprised us most was the high level of excellent customer service from the firm’s staff!

I can’t recommend this firm enough. They have an outstanding team that truly care for their clients…I have been awarded a fair six figure settlement.

Nate M.

When I say “they went to bat” for me…this Law Firm literally did just that. They persevered to bring the hard-nosed Manufacturer to settle and provide me some recompense for everything I had to endure which led to this suit.
