What's The First Step?

If you or a loved one has been injured by any of the above adverse effects or symptoms from a Zostavax vaccine, you may have a claim against Merck & Co.. You should contact your physician promptly to address any needed medical treatment -- not only for your health but to also begin building your case.

The next step is familiarizing yourself with the civil litigation process so that you will know what to expect in a Zostavax lawsuit. You will also want to gather evidence to support your claim against Merck & Co. Evidence can be medical bills or any other bills associated with your damages, voicemails and text messages (for example, a printed text message from your boss allowing you unpaid time off of work due to your damages), and any personal or witness testimony. The more evidence you have, the more your Zostavax lawyer can help you.

Then comes the most important step toward entering a Zostavax lawsuit aside from taking care of your health: contacting a Zostavax lawyer who will be able to effectively and aggressively fight for you.

Gerling Law's staff of attorneys, paralegals, and case support personnel are extraordinarily skilled at providing the focused, personal attention that your lawsuit deserves. Your lawyer will review your work history, medical history, and other facts pertinent to your case and advise you on your eligibility to participate in a Zostavax lawsuit.
