Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Triggered by a Vaccine
What is Multiple Sclerosis (MS)?
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is defined by the Mayo Clinic as a potentially disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). People with Multiple Sclerosis battle a chronic degenerative disease, and suffer from episodes, or ‘attacks,’ of symptoms. The disease involves a loss of myelin, the coating of the nerve fibers. Specifically in MS, the immune system attacks the myelin that covers nerve fibers and interrupts communications between your brain and the rest of your body. The many symptoms of MS are varied, and patients battling this disease may see an attack at any time, often with different symptoms. However, most people experience “relapsing-remitting” MS, eventually leading to a steady progression of symptoms. “Secondary-progressive” MS is when symptoms do not experience any periods of remission.
Correlation Between Multiple Sclerosis and Vaccines
There have been numerous studies to determine a possible correlation between MS and vaccines. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society strongly recommends people with MS against taking a live-virus vaccine. If you feel that you have developed Multiple Sclerosis due to a vaccine, contact a lawyer who is experienced in representing victims in the Federal Vaccine Court. Filing a vaccine injury claim is very complex. However, there are no legal costs for an injured patient represented by Maglio, Christopher and Toale, P.A. Once your case is complete, our Law Firm then asks the Court for reimbursement of the fees and costs incurred representing you. This reimbursement is separate from any money that you are awarded by the Federal Vaccine Court. You never have to share ANY portion of your money for damages with our law firm.
