S.P. v. Secretary of Health and Human Services

Multi-million-dollar judgement for vaccine injury

Amount: $3.8 Million

As a nurse practicing in Santa Rosa County, S.P. thought of the flu vaccine as a necessary preventative measure that saved lives. Unfortunately, she became one of the very rare victims who suffered a vaccine injury when she had adverse reactions to the flu shot she received at her family doctor’s office.

Numerous shoulder surgeries failed to repair damage caused when the flu vaccine was injected into the joint rather than the arm muscle. S.P. lost not only her ability to work as a nurse, but also required pain management care for life. The attorneys at the Soloway Law Firm recovered a final judgment worth over $3.8 million for our client, one of the largest settlements under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program in American history.
