While vaccines are designed to help enhance the body’s immune system and fight off disease, some side-effects may occur in around 1% of people.

Patients have a right to fully understand the condition they are suffering from and need to know what treatments and the risks associated with that condition will require.

If you or a loved one have suffered from an injury due to a lack of informed consent, Graves McLain can help ensure you get the claim you are entitled to.
