An Overview of the Gardasil “HPV” Vaccine

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a group of more than 200 related viruses, with more than 40 of those types being relatively easily spread through direct sexual contact. Some types of HPV can cause genital warts, whereas others are associated with forms of cancer, including cervical cancer.

The Gardasil vaccine is a preventive shot used to protect against the human papillomavirus (HPV). It is specifically targeted at several types of HPV known to cause cervical cancer and other HPV-related cancers. Gardasil is a vaccine produced by Merck & Co. 

The Gardasil Vaccine has been Linked to Many Medical Complications

Unfortunately, the Gardasil vaccine to protect against HPV is not without its downsides. A number of people who have received the vaccine report side effects. These adverse reactions run the range from relatively mild and temporary discomforts to severe and long-lasting medical impairments.. Indeed, the Gardasil “HPV” vaccine has been associated with the following adverse side effects: 

  • Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis
  • Arthritis
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Cervical cancer
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP)
  • Chronic Pain Syndrome

If you or your loved one was given the Gardasil “HPV” vaccine and subsequently developed any of the complications on this list, it is imperative that you seek immediate medical attention. You may be entitled to financial compensation for your injury/illness.  

What to Know About Lawsuits Against Merck & Co. (HPV Vaccine)

As the manufacturer of the Gardasil “HPV” vaccine, Merck & Co. has a general responsibility to ensure that it is properly tested, safely produced, and that consumers have reasonable warnings about the potential side effects. The pharmaceutical giant is currently facing a number of different lawsuits that allege serious autoimmune and neurological issues caused by the vaccine. 

Notably, the lawsuits have been filed in various jurisdictions—with a significant number of cases currently being heard in the Western District of North Carolina. It matters because that specific federal court has been selected as the venue for multidistrict litigation (MDL). Multidistrict litigation (MDL) is a legal process that consolidates multiple civil cases involving similar questions of fact to one federal district court for pretrial proceedings to improve efficiency.

How to Join an HPV Vaccine Lawsuit 

If you or your child developed significant medical complications after receiving the Gardasil HPV vaccine, you may be able to join the lawsuit against Merck & Co. Here are three key steps to take to bring a claim: 

  1. Ensure Medical Care Was Received: Before pursuing legal action, it is crucial to get medical care for any adverse effects experienced due to the vaccine. Doing so not only ensures health is prioritized but also sets the table for a claim. 
  2. Get Organized (Vaccine Date and Medical Records): Organizing all relevant documentation is a key step. This includes details about when you received the HPV vaccine and any medical records related to the vaccine’s side effects. 
  3. Consult With a Mass Tort Attorney: You need to consult with an attorney who has experience with mass tort cases. Your lawyer can provide guidance on the merits of your case, the likelihood of success, and the process for joining an existing lawsuit.
