Our team is part of the leadership committee for shingles vaccine lawsuits against Merck. Since 2006, Merck has sold millions Zostavax vaccines to people over 50 years old. This vaccine is supposed to prevent you from getting the shingles vaccine when you’re older, however, it has proven to have the opposite effect, causing dangerous and even deadly health issues. Get more facts about the Zostavax vaccine here.
Investigations have shown that Merck failed to do its due diligence and prove that this vaccine was safe and effective before selling it to people. In fact, we now know that Merck knew of the risks and sold this vaccine anyway. The company’s disregard for your safety and well-being has led us to hold them accountable. That is why we have been appointed to the leadership committee for the Zostavax multi-district litigation (MDL). Our goal is to help you get the best result possible for your case.
Zostavax vaccines are “faulty” according to lawsuits
The Zostavax lawsuits argue that the vaccine is “faulty.” In fact, the CDC has come out with a study that shows that this live virus shingles vaccine is only 51% effective. If you received this vaccine after 2006, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by speaking with our attorneys about your case.
In these types of lawsuits, your case is not part of a class-action lawsuit. Since your reaction to the vaccine may be totally different than someone else’s, the judge has decided that these lawsuits will all move forward individually. That means your case will be evaluated based on your individual situation so you may receive maximum compensation, not the average of thousands of claims.
Every case is different, but our goal is the same — to get you the best result possible in the shortest amount of time.Merck decided their profits were more important than your life. We are taking a stand to right this wrong. To discuss your case with our attorneys, call us at 888-430-0906 or fill out a contact form.
