In 2015 the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) awarded petitioner’s a total amount of $204,137,880.22. Of those awards, the Flu shot was the number one vaccine and GBS was the number one injury for which petitioner’s received compensation.
GBS (Guillain-Barré Syndrome) is a rare, but very serious condition that can be triggered by receiving the Flu shot. If you, or someone you know, has developed GBS after receiving the Flu shot, you may be able to file a petition in the VICP and receive compensation and monetary assistance for future life care.
If you believe you, or someone you know, developed GBS after receiving the Flu vaccine, please call the Widman Law Firm, LLC for a free consultation at 866.945.8586 and visit www.widmanlawfirm.com for more information.
