Gardasil Side Effects
Since Gardasil was cleared for sale on the U.S. market in 2006, more than 25 million doses of the vaccine have been distributed around the country. Unfortunately, there have also been over 14,000 injuries and nearly 50 deaths linked to the vaccine since 2006. Serious Gardasil side effects have been reported to include:
- Pain and swelling at the injection site (the arm)
- Nausea and fever
- Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS)
- Blood Clot
- Bells Palsy
- Birth Defects
Deaths allegedly caused by Gardasil include:
- a 17-year-old New York girl collapsed and died just two days after being administered a Gardasil vaccine;
- an 11-year-old girl died from a heart attack three days receiving a Gardasil shot, and
- a 12-year-old girl with no previous medical issues died in her sleep three weeks after taking Gardasil.
About Gardasil Class Actions
Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the Products Liability Litigation Group at our law firm has decided against the filing of a Gardasil Class Action, and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of injured individuals and/or their family members that have been injured by Gardasil.
A class action is a type of lawsuit filed with the court on behalf of large group of people or “class” of individuals that have been injured or wronged. The class is represented by the law firm and the case is generally decided upon a single member of the class who is sometimes referred to as the “class representative or class rep.”
Why Our Law Firm Is Filing Individual Lawsuits Opposed To a Class Action
In some instances, a class action may offer some advantages, as they aggregate a large number of individualized claims into one representational lawsuit. The aggregation can increase the efficiency of the legal process, lower the costs of litigation and in some cases offer the solution to a common problem wherein small recoveries do not provide the incentive for any individual or law firm to file an individual lawsuit.
However, a class action suit can also be a detriment to many class members, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees. At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each client’s recovery by filing individual Gardasil lawsuits on their behalf.
