Mumps Vaccine Lawsuit

Mumps Vaccine Lawsuit

Our lawyers are evaluating lawsuits for anyone who was diagnosed with a Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration (SIRVA) after receiving MMR or another type of mumps vaccine.


Mumps vaccines are immunizations that protect against infections with the mumps virus. Infections can cause fever, headache, muscle pain, fatigue, and swelling of the salivary glands.

How is Mumps Vaccine Given?

The only mumps vaccines on the market in the U.S. is the M-M-R II® Vaccine (MMR Vaccine), which also protects against measles and rubella.

The vaccine is injected with a 0.5-mL shot into the upper arm near the shoulder for older children. Younger children will receive the injection into the thigh muscle, so they are not at risk of SIRVA.

Can Mumps Vaccine Cause SIRVA?

If a mumps vaccine is injected improperly — usually too high or too deep into the shoulder — it may trigger inflammation and cause a Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration (SIRVA).

Symptoms of SIRVA After Mumps Vaccines

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

Mumps Vaccine Lawsuits

If your child suffered a shoulder injury (SIRVA) after receiving a mumps vaccine or MMR, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit and seek up to $250,000 from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).

Over $70 Million Paid in SIRVA Lawsuits Since 2011

Not all claims that are filed with the VICP receive a financial payout, but since 2011, around 500 people with SIRVA from vaccines have been paid around $70 million from the VICP. The maximum payout is $250,000 and the average payout for pain and disability is $140,000.
