What Causes Parsonage-Turner Syndrome?

The most likely cause of Parsonage-Turner Syndrome is an autoimmune response triggered by an illness or environmental factor. Some triggers can be infections, surgery, strenuous activity, childbirth, and in rare cases, vaccines.

Vaccines Linked to Parsonage-Turner Syndrome:

Diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTaP)
Flu shot
Hepatitis B

What Is Parsonage-Turner Syndrome?

Parsonage-Turner Syndrome (PTS), also known as Brachial Neuritis or Neuralgic Amyotrophy, is an uncommon peripheral nerve disorder that affects the nerve bundle connected to the arms, hands, and shoulders. It causes extreme pain in the upper arm and shoulder area, followed by weakness, lack of muscle control/movement, and sometimes paralysis.

Diagnosed With Parsonage Turner Syndrome After Getting a Vaccine?

The federal government created the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), a federal trust fund with billions of dollars, to pay for these cases. Mctlaw represents clients for vaccine injury cases all over the country and may be able to help you receive compensation. Our attorneys have won countless cases and hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation for their clients through the VICP.

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.
