Transverse Myelitis Attorneys
in Houston, Texas

Transverse myelitis is a rare but serious neurological condition caused by spinal cord inflammation. As it damages the insulation covering your nerve cell fibers, transverse myelitis interrupts the messages that your spinal cord nerves are able to send to the rest of your body.   

Though treatment, which can include corticosteroids and other medications, can prevent and minimize symptoms, there is no cure for transverse myelitis. It can take months or years to recover. If you have been diagnosed with transverse myelitis, your number one priority should be your health and well-being. However, you may be able to take legal action if the onset of your symptoms closely followed a vaccination. The Texas Vaccine Lawyers of The Greenwood Law Firm in Houston, Texas will help you determine if you can take legal action.

Symptoms of Transverse Myelitis

There are many symptoms that can develop and signal that you may have transverse myelitis. Some of those symptoms include: 

    • Numbness and tingling sensations 
    • Chronic pain. It is common for those with transverse myelitis to feel a sudden pain in their lower back that will expand to fleeting pain in the legs, arms, chest, or abdomen.
    • Bladder dysfunction

If you are experiencing these symptoms, seek out medical help as soon as possible.

Diagnosing Transverse Myelitis

There are many complications that those diagnosed with transverse myelitis may have to deal with for a long period of time after the initial onset of symptoms. These complications can include:

  • Continuing pain.
  • Muscle spasms.
  • Possible paralysis in the legs, arms, or sometimes both.
  • Depression or anxiety.

If you have been diagnosed with transverse myelitis, you may be feeling confused, frustrated, and unsure of what steps to take next. Our legal team in Houston, Texas is here to help. 

It has been found that many common vaccinations, including the flu shot, can trigger transverse myelitis on occasion. If you developed transverse myelitis shortly after receiving a vaccination, you may be entitled to compensation.

Seeking Legal Remedies

If you have been diagnosed with transverse myelitis as a result of a vaccine, you deserve justice. The physical pain, emotional trials, and possible significant change to your everyday life are all setbacks that you should not have had to deal with.

Set up a consultation with us today to determine whether or not you are eligible for compensation. From there, we will help you explore filing a claim depending on the circumstances of your case, such as when you received the vaccine and when the onset of your symptoms occurred. 

Filing a Claim

When it has been determined that you can file a claim, we will help you do so. You must file a claim with the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, which is a federal program designed especially to handle the claims of those who have been injured as a result of vaccines. This program requires that you file a lawsuit in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C. In addition, you will need to establish that your injury was more than likely caused by the vaccine.

The statute of limitations for filing a claim with the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program is three years after the onset of symptoms. 

You may encounter obstacles as you pursue your vaccine lawsuit, which is why it is imperative that you have a professional by your side who will advocate for you. Our attorneys will fight for your best interests and help you overcome any bureaucratic hurdles that may be set up to stop you from receiving just compensation.
