What is Polyneuritis Cranialis (PNC)?

Polyneuritis Cranialis is a disease that affects several cranial nerves at once. It is caused by the flu vaccine and lesions that affect the brain nerves.

Symptoms may include:

  • Numbness in the face
  • Neck pain
  • Pins and needles in the hands and feet

Polyneuritis Cranialis is also a sub variant of Guillain-Barre Syndrome. GBS is a rare disorder causes a person’s immune system to attack their nerve cells; this can cause muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis after a vaccine is given.

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.
