The following are recent examples of claims where compensation was awarded under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.
$418,000 Settlement for Flu Shot GBS Resulting in Death
In January 2017, the Law Offices of Leah V. Durant, PLLC secured a $418,000.00 settlement on behalf of the estate of an individual who tragically lost his life after succumbing to the effects of Guillain-Barre Syndrome. The individual received a flu shot, and died shortly thereafter. Although the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), did not concede that the diagnosis and ultimate death was the result of the vaccination, the evidence presented was sufficient to result in a favorable settlement on behalf of the client.
$240,000 Settlement for Flu Shot GBS
In February 2017, the Law Offices of Leah V. Durant, PLLC obtained an award of $240,000.00 for a client who was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome following the administration of a routine flu vaccination. As in the previous case, although the Department of Health and Human Services (the agency responsible for administering the VICP) denied that the individual’s vaccination caused the condition, the claim was ultimately settled for a significant level of award.
$165,500 Damages Award for Individual Diagnosed with SIRVA Following Flu Shot
In a case in which a client was diagnosed with shoulder injury related to vaccine administration following receipt of a flu shot, the Office of Special Masters determined that the client was entitled to compensation under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. In this case, compensation was awarded in the amount of $165,500.00.
