Connecticut Faulty Vaccine Lawyers – Kocian Law Group

Vaccinations are meant to prevent illness, but when a vaccine is faulty or defective, serious illnesses and injuries can occur. If you or someone you love has been injured by a defective vaccine, call the Kocian Law Group.

How Do Defective Vaccines Occur?

A vaccine can be tainted in three ways: it can fail to work as intended, it can cause dangerous side effects or symptoms, or it can be tainted during manufacturing or shipping.

If a vaccine fails to work as intended, a person who receives it may catch the very disease the vaccine was intended to prevent. Because most vaccines are developed in response to serious or even deadly diseases, serious injury, lifelong illness, or even death can result from a failed vaccine.

Even if a vaccine works as intended, it may cause serious side effects or other symptoms. Vaccines must meet the same rigorous testing and trials as other medications in order to prevent serious injuries. If injuries occur, a manufacturer may be held liable.

Manufacturers and distributors of vaccines must also meet rigorous standards to ensure their products are not defective or tainted. When a manufacturing plant or distributor fails to control the machines that produce or package vaccines, contamination can occur. Also, improperly functioning machines can lead to skewed dosages or incorrect measurements of vital vaccine components.

A faulty vaccine can cause a number of injuries, illnesses, and conditions, including:

  • anaphylaxis
  • death
  • brachial neuritis
  • Tourette’s syndrome
  • Guillain-Barre Syndrome
  • arthritis
  • transverse myelitis
  • lupus
  • autoimmune hepatitis
