Our Gardasil injury lawyers are investigating serious side effects linked to Gardasil, including blood clots, neurological disorders and even death. Gardasil was approved by the FDA in June 2006. As of June 30, 2008, there have been 9,749 VAERS reports of adverse events following vaccination with Merck’s Gardasil HPV vaccine. Of these, 94% were classified as reports of non-serious adverse reactions events, and 6% as serious adverse reactions.

Merck Inc., the maker of Gardasil, has undertaken an aggressive lobbying campaign to force families to subject their daughters to the vaccine. Our Gardasil injury lawyers are offering free consultations to anyone who suffered serious complications from Gardasil or their families. Our injury lawyers will work hard to make sure vaccine injury victims receive the compensation they deserve.

Gardasil injury lawyers working for our firm have been investigating reports of deaths, GBS, nerve damage and blood clots occurring in individuals after being immunized with the vaccine. As of June 30, 2008, 20 deaths had been reported to vaccine adverse event reporting system (VAERS). These deaths are still under investigation. Still, it has been widely reported that Gardasil is associated with GBS.

Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) has also been reported in individuals following vaccination with Gardasil. GBS is a rare neurological disorder that causes muscle weakness. It occurs spontaneously in unvaccinated individuals after a variety of specific infections. Finally, thromboembolic disorders (blood clots) have been reported to VAERS in people who have received Gardasil.
