Hepatitis A Vaccine Lawsuit

Hepatitis A Vaccine Lawsuit

Our lawyers are evaluating lawsuits for adults or children who suffered a Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration (SIRVA) after receiving any type of Hepatitis A vaccines.


Hepatitis A vaccines are immunizations that protect against a blood-transmitted virus called Hepatitis A. Infections can cause liver inflammation, flu-like symptoms for months, liver failure, or death.

How is Hepatitis A Vaccine Given?

There are several Hepatitis A vaccines on the market in the U.S. for adults and children, including:

Both of these vaccines are injected with a 0.5-mL shot into the upper arm (deltoid muscle) near the shoulder for older children and adults. In children under 2 years old, they are injected into the thigh muscle.

Can Hepatitis A Vaccine Cause SIRVA?

If the Hepatitis A vaccine is accidentally injected improperly into the shoulder muscles, it may cause a Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration (SIRVA). This side effect may occur if the needle is injected too high or too deep into the shoulder, triggering inflammation and severe pain.

Symptoms of SIRVA After Hepatitis A Vaccines

  • Arm pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Intense, stabbing pain
  • Shoulder dysfunction
  • Weakness
  • Limited range of motion
  • Lack of flexibility
  • Inflammation

Hepatitis A Vaccine Lawsuits

If you or your child suffered a shoulder injury (SIRVA) from a Hepatitis A vaccine, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit with the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) and seek up to $250,000 for your serious injuries or disabilities.

Over $70 Million Paid in SIRVA Lawsuits Since 2011

The VICP does not always pay compensation to people who develop SIRVA after a vaccine, but for claims that do receive compensation, the average payout is $140,000, or it can be a maximum of $250,000. Since 2011, around $70 million was paid to 500 people with SIRVA.
