- Flu Vaccines Found to Damage Nerves in the Arms
No one thinks that getting a flu shot at a flu clinic or the doctors office will cause a serious injury. In fact, most of us think we are protecting our health.
Unfortunately, sometimes poorly performed flu shots can cause a serious arm injury. Some patients report that they cannot move their arm after a flu shot.
Investigative journalists have found that there are flu shots that are placed too high on the shoulder that can then cause severe nerve damage.
In some cases, the nerve damage can be so severe that it requires corrective surgery. While the paralysis in the arm that received a flu shot is not always a given, more and more Americans are coming down with these injuries. In other cases where surgery is not necessary, injured patients are often placed on a regimen of powerful anti-pain medications.
Doctors say that while the injuries are not very common, improperly trained medical professionals can cause the injuries if they misplace the flu shot.
Patients are being encouraged to avoid getting shots at pharmacies. Doctors say that it is perfectly normal to be sore after a flu shot however, it is not normal to be incapacitated in the arm after a flu shot.
Not everyone who provides a flu shot at a pharmacy and clinic has been trained in the latest techniques.
The federal government provides a victim compensation fund for similar injuries. Recently, the definition of compensable injuries has been expanded to include injuries to the shoulder.
In 1986, Congress passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act to compensate families and individuals who were harmed by vaccines and special medical products.
Under this law and the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, families who have been harmed by the flu vaccine may be entitled to a cash award.

I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
I would have no hesitation at all recommending Phillips Law Group. In particular, Juan Roque has impressed me with his professionalism, his integrity and his heart for the community!
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
If you are in need of legal support for a motor vehicle collision of any kind, I highly recommend going to Phillips Law Group Injury Lawyers. Sean Davis has exemplary knowledge and experience in this field, compassion for his clients, and excellent judgment and communication skills.
Phillips is the best!! Love all that they do to give back to the community and how much they help those who are experiencing homelessness. ❤️
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
Sophia H is a pleasure to work with! Thanks for all you do.
