Eyes with Light Shining through Them


What Causes Optic Neuritis?

Optic Neuritis is an eye condition where the optic nerve is swollen or inflamed. The optic nerve carries light signals to the brain, allowing you to see. When the optic nerve is inflamed or infected, you are not able to see clearly. The definitive cause of Optic Neuritis is unknown, but it may be an immune system response in which the body attacks the optic nerve. This could be caused by viruses such as mumps, measles, flu, as well as others. In rare cases, it may be triggered by a vaccine, like tuberculosis, hepatitis B, tetanus, meningitis, measles, and rubella (MR).

Were You Diagnosed with Optic Neuritis After Getting a Vaccine?

Mctlaw may be able to help you receive compensation for your vaccine injury. There is a federally funded program called the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), which has billions of dollars in trust fund money to compensate people in these rare cases. Mctlaw NEVER charges our vaccine injury clients for representation. Through the VICP, our attorneys are paid by the federal government, making our client fees ZERO. See below for a helpful guide to the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.


For example, we represented an oil services worker, who received a flu shot aboard an offshore oil platform, and in the following days and weeks, he suffered from vision problems. Doctors found he developed optic neuritis in both of his eyes. He could no longer work and lost his ability to hunt and fish, which were his passions. Our mctlaw vaccine injury attorney worked with a renowned medical expert and secured a settlement consisting of a cash payout of $220,000 plus another $400,000 over the course of 15 years in annual payments.


Our attorneys will look over your case at no cost to you. Here’s what you need for a review to see if you qualify to file a claim in the VICP:

  • The date and records of your vaccination.
  • The kind of vaccine you were administered.
  • Medical records from your first treatment after symptoms started.
  • Medical records of the latest treatment you received.

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.

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!
