Experienced Chicago Brachial Neuritis Vaccine Injury Attorneys

Injuries that impact the central nervous system can be debilitating to those who endure them. Scrambled nerve signals, pain and even paralysis may require long-term treatment as well as emotional counseling and support. When you are injured by the administration of a vaccine, it is important to know who to turn to. Vaccine injuries, such as brachial neuritis, can manifest quickly and require medical care and therapy.

Helping families deal with the aftermath of a vaccine injury is of paramount importance to every team member of the Vaccine Injury Law Project. Led by Attorney Ed Kraus, a respected, award-winning vaccine injury lawyer with more than 20 years of experience in litigation, our team is committed to fighting for just compensation in vaccine lawsuits for brachial neuritis claims throughout the United States.

Ed Kraus represented a man who suffered from brachial neuritis after receiving a flu vaccine. The effects of the injury lasted for more than six months. He was awarded a lump sum payment of $465,049.52.

Understanding Brachial Neuritis Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

Brachial neuritis, also referred to as Parsonage-Turner syndrome or neuralgic amyotrophy, is a disorder that impacts the function of the chest, shoulders, arms and hands. One of the first symptoms is severe pain from nerves in the brachial plexus. Other symptoms may include:

  • Upper arm and shoulder pain
  • Pain on one side of the body
  • Muscle weakness or paralysis in arm or shoulder
  • Loss of control or range of motion in arm or shoulder
  • Numbness in shoulder or arm

In some cases, brachial neuritis manifests without explanation, but it can also be the result of a Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration (SIRVA). While it is rare to develop the condition from a vaccine, it has been linked to those containing tetanus toxoid (DTaP, DTP, DT, Td, or TT). In some cases, the injury heals on its own over time, but more severe cases may require medicine and physical therapy to manage the pain and improve muscle strength and control.

Helping Clients Pursue VICP Compensation in Chicago Illinois and Beyond

If you have developed brachial neuritis after receiving a shot in your arm or shoulder, you may be eligible to make a claim under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). For more than a decade, we have focused on helping children and adults pursue the compensation they need to help recover from adverse reactions to specific vaccines.

We have an excellent success rate with tough cases because we have a team of knowledgeable, compassionate people who are willing to go the extra mile for our clients.
