Doctors and health officials recommend the HPV vaccine for young girls and boys to prevent cervical and other cancers caused by the human papillomavirus. There are two types of HPV vaccine: Gardasil and Cervarix. For some people, these vaccines lead to severe and sometimes life-threatening injuries.

Injuries Linked to Gardasil

Gardasil is recommended for girls and boys starting at the age of 11 or 12. The vaccine is FDA-approved for men and women as old as 26.

Certain people have suffered serious health problems after receiving the vaccine. Reactions to the Gardasil/HPV vaccine have been linked to:

  • Blood clots
  • Guillain-Barre syndrome
  • Severe allergic reaction
  • Death

Although many people receive the vaccine without problems, some individuals experience life-altering reactions.

Injured by an HPV Vaccine?

In some cases, these adverse reactions can lead to temporary or permanent disability. For an adult, wages may be lost if the reaction makes it impossible to work. For a person of any age who received the vaccine, medical attention will be necessary if a health problem arises. This care will result in hefty medical bills, which could have been avoided if you had known you would be injured by the vaccine.

If you have been injured by Gardasil or Cervarix, you may be entitled to compensation. The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program provides compensation for people who have suffered specific injuries from certain vaccines, within a specified amount of time. If your injury and the vaccine you received do not fall into these categories, we can work aggressively to try to prove the HPV vaccine injured you.

Recovering compensation from the program involves meeting deadlines, filing paperwork, gathering documentation and other complex tasks. Attorney Ed Kraus and his vaccine injury team handle all aspects of the process for you, and will fight to get you the compensation you deserve. And, you do not have to pay any attorney's fees for us to represent you. If the VICP awards you money, the government will pay for the related legal costs.
