When a rare vaccine adverse reaction occurs, the recipient may be entitled to monetary compensation through a government funded program known as the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).
Individuals can file a vaccine injury claim to seek compensation for medical expenses if they suffer a rare vaccine reaction such as:
- Guillain-Barre syndrome
- Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis
- Brachial neuritis
- Frozen shoulder
- Transverse myelitis
Victims can file a claim on their own or they can hire a vaccine injury lawyer to assist at no cost to them.
A vaccine lawyer is not necessary, but hiring one is recommended. A vaccine attorney can make the claim process less daunting by focusing on the legal aspect while the patient focuses on recovery.
Qualified vaccine injury lawyers are familiar with vaccine court system and can ensure your claim is filed before the deadline. All legal fees are paid by the VICP, so hiring a vaccine attorney is free.
Don’t tackle the vaccine claim process alone if you or your child was injured by a vaccine. Hire a vaccine injury lawyer to focus on your claim while you focus on recovery.
