Transverse Myelitis (TM) is a neurological disorder. Generally, inflammation across the spinal cord causes damage by destroying Myelin which is the fatty insulation that covers nerve cell fibers. The inflammation causes scars that interrupt communications from the spinal cord to the rest of the body. TM is often referred to as an autoimmune disorder. This means that a person’s immune system is not properly working. Transverse Myelitis can be caused by viral or bacterial infections as well as certain vaccinations.
Symptoms of Transverse Myelitis vary from person to person. Generally, it starts with sudden lower back pain followed by muscle weakness and/or abnormal sensations in the lower extremities of your toes and feet. It can rapidly deteriorate to more severe symptoms and sometimes even leads to paralysis, urinary problems and loss of bowel control.
Most patients recover from Transverse Myelitis with minor or limited residual problems while others suffer permanent impairments that affect their day-to-day activities.
Certain vaccines have been linked to Transverse Myelitis. Vaccines linked to TM include the seasonal flu vaccine, tetanus, measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) and Hepatitis B vaccines.
If you, a family member or a loved one have received one of these vaccines and have recently been diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis that occurred around the time as your vaccine, you may be entitled to compensation through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. This is a program that was developed by the United States Government back in the 1980’s to help victims suffering from adverse vaccine reactions obtain compensation to help offset serious and disabling injuries and the impact the injuries have on their lives.
Although the program was developed to simplify matters it is a complicated procedure that requires the need of an attorney able to represent victims in the program. I have been representing people and family members with serious side effects from vaccines including death for 27 years. My clients are from all around the country.
It costs you nothing to retain our services. Our fees are a separate claim that we deal with directly through the program so that you have no obligation for attorney’s fees. In addition to our fees, our costs are also paid for by the program. Your award is not reduced by attorney’s fees or costs. We advance those costs so, again, there is no financial risk to you or your family in retaining our services to represent you in a vaccine injury compensation claim.
We have offices in Wisconsin, including Madison and Baraboo, and also offices in Chicago and New York City. If you do not live close to one of our offices, I will travel to meet with you in or near your home and can also communicate via Skype.
If you or a loved one have suffered any injuries following a vaccine including, but not limited to, Transverse Myelitis, following a flu, tetanus or MMR vaccine, please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss your legal options. We have helped many individuals and their families recover millions of dollars through the program over the course of the years and look forward to the opportunity of serving you.
