One of the most painful side effects of vaccines is brachial neuritis, a condition that can cause nerve damage, muscle weakness, arm numbness, and even paralysis.

Brachial Neuritis and Vaccines
Brachial neuritis is a side effect of vaccines that contain toxoids. The vaccine triggers an inflammatory immune response in the brachial plexus, which is a nerve that runs from the spine down the arm. Although it is rare, vaccines are associated with 15% of cases.
Brachial neuritis can cause severe pain that requires treatment with the strongest pain-killers for the first few days or weeks of the condition. The pain gradually subsides within a few weeks, and most patients continue to improve over the next 6-18 months. Some patients are left with residual muscle weakness, nerve damage, or paralysis.
Symptoms of brachial neuritis:
- Sudden pain in the shoulder or upper arm
- Deep, steady, often severely aching pain
- Loss of sensation or numbness
- Pain that occurs on one shoulder, both shoulders, or the opposite shoulder as the injection site
What is the problem?
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but our attorneys are not filing a brachial neuritis class action. Since the 1980s, pharmaceutical companies have been shielded from lawsuits involving vaccine side effects. Instead, people who were injured must file a claim with the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).
What is the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program?
The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) is funded by a $0.75 excise tax on all vaccines. People who were injured by vaccines can file a claim and seek up to $250,000 in compensation for their pain and suffering, medical expenses, disability, and more. Nearly $3 billion has been paid out since 1989.
VICP Claims for Brachial Neuritis
In 1997, the VICP added brachial neuritis to a list of side effects from the tetanus vaccine (DTaP, DTP, Td, or TT). You may be eligible for compensation if you developed symptoms within 2-28 days after receiving this vaccine.
The VICP has also provided compensation to people who developed brachial neuritis from the seasonal flu vaccine. Other vaccines have also been linked to cases of brachial neuritis, including HPV, Hepatitis B, and more. If you think you may have a claim, it is important to talk to an attorney as soon as possible because there are strict filing deadlines.
