What is Bell’s Palsy?

Bell’s Palsy is a condition that involves paralysis of the seventh cranial nerve resulting in the partial or complete weakness of muscles in half of the face, loss of taste, increased sensitivity to sound, and changes in volume of tears and saliva. This condition causes a person’s face to droop on the affected side. The onset is rapid and usually temporary.

If you notice any of these symptoms following a vaccination, it’s essential to seek medical attention promptly for proper evaluation and treatment.

  • Rapid onset (hours or days) of partial or total facial paralysis affecting one side of the face

  • Muscle twitching

  • Facial droop

  • Difficulty closing your eye, smiling, or chewing

  • Pain or numbness behind the ear on the affected side

  • Increased sensitivity to sound on the affected side

  • Headache

  • A loss of taste

  • Changes in the amount of tears and saliva you produce

  • Drooling

If you develop an injury after receiving a vaccine, you may be entitled to compensation. Here are the steps to take to pursue potential compensation:

Step 1 – Confirm Information on Recent Vaccines
Gather information on the date, brand (if noted), and type of vaccine(s) you’ve had within the last three years that preceded your symptoms. Once you have this information, move on to step two.

Step 2 – Notify the Doctor Who Diagnosed Your Injury
If you are currently being treated for your injury and realize that your symptoms began after a recent vaccination, you should make sure to bring this information to your medical provider’s attention. Your physician may not be aware of the connection, but having this information recorded in your patient file improves medical documentation that helps everyone get a better picture of any and all factors that could be the reason you developed a vaccine injury. In many cases, the medical providers are not aware of a person’s vaccination history and, therefore, may not consider the vaccination as a potential trigger.

Step 3- Seek a Free Consultation with an Experienced Vaccine Injury Attorney
If you received a vaccine and began to have symptoms following receipt of the vaccine, you may be eligible to receive monetary compensation through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).
