Gold Law Firm, LLC. Files Petition for Alleged Flu Vaccine Injury
March 18, 2014 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) Gold law Firm, LLC recently filed a Vaccine Injury Petition for an alleged reaction to the Flu Vaccine that resulted in Cardiac Sinus Tachycardia and long-term cardiac abnormalities. The case, filed in the Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C., sought recovery under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.
"This case is a striking example of the injuries and adverse reactions that can occur as a result of vaccinations," says Howard Gold, a leading Vaccine Injury attorney.According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Flu Vaccine is designed to protect young and old alike from contracting the Flu, which can have devastating affects on the infirmed and elderly and can be debihlitating to otherwise healthy individuals, leading to more severe conditions, including Pneumonia. http://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/keyfacts.htm
In this most recent case, 14-vv036v. SECRETARY OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, the Petitioner received the Flu Vaccine and immediately thereafter began to experience rapid heartbeat, sweating and palpitations. She was quickly diagnosed with Sinus Tachycardia and spent many months trying to regulate her heartbeat, regain strength and be able to resume normal activities. She has made an incomplete recovery, and requires constant cardiac monitoring. This and other reactions are continually reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) as occuring after the Flu Vaccine. See, http://www.vaers.hhs.gov. "I strongly believe that children and adults alike should be receiving all of their mandatory vaccinations. However, it's important to talk to your health care practitioner about the risks," states Gold, who has been handling Vaccine Injury cases for 15 years.
Gold also says that there is nothing inherently wrong with the Flu Vaccine but that each person is different and reacts differently to each vaccination. That is why it's essential that the public be aware of a Program intended to compensate them if they do, in fact, have a reaction.
Petitioners have three (3) years from the onset of the injury (or two years from date of death) to file a claim. Gold states that the "Program is not used as much as it could be because the American public is just not aware of it. I receive at least 5 calls a month from individuals who cannot obtain compensation because the deadline has passed. They just found out about it too late. We all need to do a better job in getting the word out to the public that the Program exists."
