MARC J.

The assertions are wide ranging and include plaintiffs claiming to have suffered various side effects which include contracting shingles, chickenpox, high blood pressure, intense neuropathic pain, eye injuries, headaches, dizziness amongst others.

According to court documents filed by Marc J. Bern & Partners LLP, it is alleged that “Merck knew and had reason to know that its Zostavax vaccine was inherently defective and ... dangerous as designed,” and that “Merck downplayed the serious and dangerous side effects.” According to founding Partner Marc J Bern, the firm is currently representing nearly 5000 claimants and has thousands more filings to follow. “We have been investigating this drug for quite some time. We steadfastly believe in the merits of this litigation.“
