Law firm to bring compensation claims over Covid-19 vaccine injuries

A law firm will be pursuing cases for clients who allegedly suffered injuries as a result of the Covid-19 vaccine.

Partner at Moloney & Solicitors ‘Liam Moloney’ stated that a number of people have contacted him to say that they fell seriously ill after being administered the Covid-19 vaccine.

Although being pro-vaccination, Moloney stated that a small number of people have suffered significant adverse reactions following the administration of the vaccine.

If these reactions can be proven as being linked to a defect with the product, a civil case can commence.

The law firm, based in Naas in Co Kildare, has been contacted by a number of people who suffered myocarditis and pericarditis, as well as Bell’s palsy and SIRVA after being administered the vaccine.

“The vast majority of people who get vaccinated will have no side effects or only mild side effects. Anyone with a mild or moderate side effect has no potential for a claim. But people who believe they have suffered a significant injury have contacted me.”

In order for a claim to be legit, it has to be proven that the vaccine had a defect.

This will then involve a medical expert providing evidence that the individual’s injury was caused by the vaccine.

The Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA) and the National Immunisation Office (NIO) have been regularly publishing data on people who have contacted them over potential vaccine side effects.

Statistics show that 13,529 reports were made to the HPRA since the vaccination process began.
