Wellesley Hills, MA (PRWEB) July 19, 2011
Gold law Firm, LLC. attorney Howard Gold recently filed a Gardasil vaccine complaint on behalf of a now 18-year old Florida girl, who has a chronic debilitating neurological disease. The case filed in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C., seeks recovery under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.
“This case is a tragic example of the increasing number of injuries and adverse reactions we are seeing nationwide in young woman who have received the Gardasil vaccine,” says Howard Gold, a leading Vaccine Injury attorney who handles cases from across the United States.
First approved in 2006, Gardasil is designed to protect young women and girls from several of the human papillomavirus (HPV) strains likely to cause genital warts and cervical cancer – the second most common cancer among women.
In this most recent case, 11-vv-00277, ZIEMBA et al v. SECRETARY OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, the Petitioner, who at the time was 14-years old, received the Gardasil vaccination. According to the filing, within days she began to experience double-vision, fatigue and weakness in her body and lack of balance. She has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), a chronic, progressive autoimmune disease of the central nervous system. Since its introduction there have been more than twenty-thousand (20,000) reactions from the Gardasil Vaccine reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) set up under the Vaccine Injury Program. See, http://www.vaers.hhs.gov “I strongly believe that children and adults alike should be receiving all of their mandatory vaccinations. However in the case of optional vaccines, especially ones that are new to market, it's important to talk to your health care practitioner about the risks,” states Gold, who has been handling Vaccine cases for 12 years.
Patients 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.”
