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.
COVID-19 Vaccine Injuries are NOT covered by the VICP.
Example of Compensation for Optic Neuritis From a Flu Shot
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.

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.Me’Chelle
