Johnson & Johnson COVID Vaccine Lawsuit Lawyer

Our law firm is currently handling lawsuits on behalf of individuals who have been injured after receiving the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) COVID vaccine. Lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson claim that the vaccine may be linked to adverse health events including blood clots, pulmonary embolism, stroke-like symptoms, and death.

What Do We Know About J&J COVID Vaccine Lawsuits?

On February 27, 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the single-dose COVID-19 vaccine developed by the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of J&J. The EUA authorized administration of the vaccine while additional data was assembled.

In April, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the FDA advised providers to suspend administration of the J&J vaccine because six women ages 18-48 years old experienced cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) or blood clots in the brain’s veins. One woman died after experiencing complications.

J&J COVID Vaccine Injuries

The CDC and FDA warned that patients taking the J&J vaccine could experience CVST or blood clots in the brain and other blood vessels such as the legs, lungs (pulmonary embolism), abdomen, and brain (stroke). Spontaneous CVST affects 5 of every 1 million people annually around the world. CVST can lead to serious disability or death. Cases of CVST occurred several days to 2 weeks after the patient was vaccinated with the J&J vaccine.

Can I Recover Compensation for My Injuries in a J&J COVID Vaccine Lawsuit?

If you or a loved one has been injured by J&J COVID Vaccine, you may recover compensation for any or all of the following:

  • Past and future medical expenses;
  • Loss of wages; and
  • Other economic losses related to your injury.

J&J COVID Vaccine in the News

In late March and early April, 2021, six cases of serious injury were reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System, which addresses safety problems related to licensed vaccines. The type of injury these women reported was an especially rare and dangerous blood clot in the brain. The patients also developed thrombocytopenia, a condition which produces dangerously low platelet levels.

In late April, 2021, the CDC and FDA agreed to end the suspension period for the J&J vaccine. The FDA then added a warning label to the J&J COVID vaccine to alert consumers about this rare, but serious blood clotting risk.

A similar complication was reported in some people who received the AstraZeneca vaccine, which has not been approved for use in the United States. Countries in Europe halted administration of the AstraZeneca vaccine after several women under the age of 60 developed CVST.
