Guillain-Barré Syndrome Triggered by Vaccination

Reviewed By Anne Carrión Toale, Vaccine Injury Attorney

What is Guillain-Barré Syndrome?

Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) is a disorder that causes a patient’s immune system to go haywire and attack its own peripheral nervous system. GBS is also referred to as Acute Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (AIDP). Symptoms range from a feeling of pins and needles to complete paralysis and can begin anywhere from a few days to several weeks after vaccination.  However, symptoms usually peak around one to two weeks after the vaccine is given.  The chronic version of GBS is known as Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy or CIDP.

The Flu Vaccine and GBS

Researchers who study vaccine reaction rates find that “GBS is more strongly associated with the flu vaccine” compared to any other type of immunization.

The Journal of the American Medical Association cites Guillain Barré as the most frequent neurological condition reported after getting the flu vaccine.

 HPV Vaccine and GBS

There is evidence that the HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccination can trigger Guillain Barré Syndrome. 

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says Guillain Barré has been reported after the HPV vaccination. 

Other studies show that 72% of patients who reported GBS symptoms after an HPV vaccine experienced those symptoms within 6 weeks after their vaccination.

What To Do if You Have GBS from a Vaccine Reaction?

  • Contact a lawyer who is experienced in representing patients in front of the United States Court of Federal Claims. Filing a vaccine injury claim is an extremely complex process.
  • There are no legal costs for an injured patient represented by mctlaw. Instead, at the end of the case, our law firm asks the Court for payment of the fees and costs spent representing you.
  • This payment is separate from any money you’re awarded by the Court. You never share any portion of your payout with our law firm.
  • Find out more about the legal process of vaccine injury compensation.

FAQ About the Vaccine Injury Compensation Process

Do I Need an Attorney?

Yes. We advise that you DO NOT attempt to represent yourself in the National Vaccine Compensation ProgramHiring a vaccine attorney comes at no cost to you because the Court pays for all legal fees.

How Much Will this Cost Me? Nothing. Here’s Why:

There is NO cost to file a claim.  mctlaw does not charge its clients to represent them in cases brought under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. We do not take a percentage or contingency fee from your financial award. We are paid separately by the Court of Federal Claims at the conclusion of the case.

As a service to our clients, our Firm also covers the costs of litigating the case, such as filing fees, expert witness fees, travel expenses, etc. 

Do I Need to Hire a Lawyer in My State?

No. The Vaccine Court is located in Washington, DC and covers all vaccine injury claims in the United States. This is not a “local” case that a local personal injury lawyer should handle.

Our attorneys are ready to represent you no matter where you live in the United States and its territories.  Our attorneys come to you at or near your home so there is no need for you to travel to our offices in Washington, DC, Sarasota, FL, or Seattle, WA.

What Information Do We Need to Start Building a Case?

First, we need a copy of your vaccine record.  This tells us exactly what vaccines you got and when you got them.

Next, we’ll ask for copies of all relevant medical records and a list of every doctor or hospital where you’ve received treatment for your vaccine injury. 

We use this information to gather the remaining medical records on file at each location. 

We then turn over a copy of your complete and comprehensive medical records to the Court.

How Long Does the Entire Process Take?

This process is designed to be quicker than civil litigation. With some exceptions, it usually is.

A hearing on whether the vaccine caused the injury often occurs within a year. Cases that settle can conclude in as little as a year or two. Other cases, despite our best efforts, can take several years.

How Much is Usually Awarded in these Cases?

Compensation includes monetary damages for pain and suffering, past and future medical expenses, past and future lost wages, and reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs. Compensation for pain and suffering is limited to a maximum of $250,000. There is no limit of compensation for medical expenses and lost wages.

How Our Vaccine Attorneys Can Help

Mctlaw currently represents hundreds of patients across the United States who are suffering from Guillain-Barre Syndrome triggered by a vaccine reaction.

Our law firm’s vaccine attorneys obtain compensation for patients with vaccine injuries by filing a lawsuit in the United States Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C. The outcome of the lawsuit determines what kind of compensation a victim may receive.

Very few attorneys are able to practice law before the Federal Vaccine Court. That’s why you should hire an attorney with extensive experience in this area of law. These are NOT simple personal injury cases.

What are the Symptoms of Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS)?

Symptoms of Guillain-Barré Syndrome start out as weakness or tingling in the legs. Sometimes, these sensations then spread to the arms and upper body until the victim becomes paralyzed.  In some cases, GBS causes such severe muscle weakness that patients must be put on a ventilator to breathe.

The most common GBS symptoms include:

  • Pins and needles feeling in your extremities
  • Weakness in your legs that spreads upwards
  • Trouble walking or keeping your balance
  • Difficulty chewing or swallowing
  • Problems breathing

Types of Guillain-Barré Variations

There are different variants of Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS). Some of the most common are:

  • Acute Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (AIDP)
  • Miller Fisher Syndrome (MFS)
  • Acute Motor Axonal Neuropathy (AMAN)
  • Acute Motor Sensory Axonal Neuropathy (AMSAN)
  • Pharyngeal-Cervical-Brachial Variant
  • Acute Panautonomic Neuropathy
  • Bickerstaff’s Brainstem Encephalitis (BBE)

My experience with mctlaw for my hip claim was remarkable, I found the communication to be outstanding. I also felt they did an excellent job setting expectations and then delivering on those stated expectations. From net amount, timing of the settlement, how much each related party would receive etc. they were outstanding. I would highly recommend them. They are very professional and set the bar in vaccine injury practice.


Five stars for mctlaw! Paralegal Leslie Williams did an outstanding job communicating with us and keeping us informed. Thanks for all the help.


I am excited to be receiving my final payment so I can put all this behind me. I am really grateful to everyone who played a part in getting me this well deserved settlement as my life has been negatively impacted over the years.


We cannot thank you enough for the services your firm has provided for Marie and I in our time of need. I could not have chosen a finer firm near or far to represent us.

John and Marie (Last Name Withheld for Privacy)

My first response is “Wow!” It has only been 11 months since I first heard of “SIRVA” and an HHS program that awarded compensation to its victims and only 7 months since MC&T accepted my case. I feel that your efforts on my part made all the difference.

Thanks to you I am living comfortably in my own home with assistance. After my devastating GBS diagnosis from the flu vaccine six years ago, I didn’t know what to do. Thank goodness I found you and your law firm. Thank you so much!

Alison is a phenomenal attorney… When she put together the demand letter she was able to explain what I had been through and how I had felt… I want to thank your firm but personally thank all that had a hand in resolving my case.

Thank you so much. It was so nice to deal with someone who treated us with respect and had a true interest in our future. This would not have happened without your hard work. Please tell anyone who helped with this that we truly appreciate it.

Mr. Maglio, I want you to know the appreciation I have for Diana Stadelnikas and her team for the effort they have put into my wife’s claim!

While there’s a way to go yet, I want to assure you will they have my full confidence and gratitude to the finish! I know you must be proud of your people!
