I am a former federal and State prosecutor and now handle criminal defense and personal injury/civil rights cases. Feel free to check out my web site and contact me at (212) 577-9797 or via email at Eric@RothsteinLawNY.com. I was named to the Super Lawyers list as one of the top attorneys in New York for 2012. No more than 5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by Super Lawyers. The above answer is for informational purposes only and not meant as legal advice.
There is a very small risk that some people who receive the flu vaccine will have a neurological reaction to it. If she had such a reaction proving a case will be impossible as against the vaccines manufacturer. If the batch was tainted or recalled then the answer is very different. The case against the doctors and hospital requires an expert to review all of the relevant medical records to determine why she went into a coma. Why she has the inability to walk and the other neurological injuries. You also have strict time limits to have the case filed. If her first lawyer started a lawsuit but its been dismissed or discontinued then she will not be able to pursue the case. Timing is everything so I would need to know when the injection took place and then review the hospital records to determine what departures there may have been.
