SIRVA Lawyer

SIRVA, or Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration, can occasionally occur after you receive a vaccine. Although a little bit of soreness is normal after you get a vaccine injected in your arm, significant pain in the shoulder joint area or surrounding tissues is not. Although the risk of a SIRVA injury is rare, it’s not impossible, and if this is something you or a loved one has suffered from, you may need the assistance of a SIRVA lawyer. 

Symptoms of SIRVA

According to WebMD, “the main signs of SIRVA are serious shoulder pain and less range of motion, meaning trouble with moving your shoulder normally.”

But severe pain and shoulder-related injuries like adhesive capsulitis, bursitis, a rotator cuff injury (tendonitis or tear of the rotator cuff), nerve irritation, numbness, tingling (paresthesia), and other intense injuries are also possible when you suffer from SIRVA. Long-term complications from injuries related to vaccine administration may make you eligible to make a SIRVA claim. 

According to the Journal of Hand Global Surgery Online, shared by the National Center for Biotechnology Information/the United States National Library of Medicine, “Most instances of SIRVA are associated with errant placement of the needle and/or local reaction to the delivered serum during administration of the vaccine.” 

While the report notes that most shoulder complaints after receiving a vaccine “resolve within 24 to 48 hours,” some patients deal with debilitating shoulder pain. Fortunately, there are legal avenues to pursue to seek justice after suffering from SIRVA.

How a SIRVA Lawyer Can Help

A SIRVA lawyer can help individuals who have sustained shoulder injuries due to vaccine administration. They understand vaccine injury claims and the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), a federal program designed to compensate individuals harmed by vaccines.

If you experienced SIRVA after receiving a vaccination, you may be eligible for compensation and a lawyer with specific skills in this area can help. An injury lawyer like the ones on the team at Phillips Law Group can help secure the compensation you deserve for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
