The federal government has established a compensation program for vaccine injuries. Any person who suffers from an adverse reaction to a vaccination in the United States as well as in U.S. trust territories can file a claim with the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. The claims are not filed in state or federal district courts, but instead with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C. It is not necessary to be a U.S. citizen to be eligible for compensation.
Our experienced litigation and trial attorneys maintain a national practice litigating vaccine adverse reaction claims in the Court of Federal Claims. They have vast experience selecting and using experts in all aspects of the vaccine program, including medical causation, damages and economics. When representing clients in vaccine claims, our attorneys’ fees and costs are fully paid by the vaccine program so long as there is a reasonable basis to bring a claim.
The vaccine program is a no-fault compensation program which means that you do not need to prove that your injury was caused by a doctor or nurse or was due to a mistake made by the vaccine company. You only need to show that there is a high likelihood that your injury was caused by the vaccine. The injury must have been caused by one of the vaccines covered by the program, including diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, haemophilus influenza type b, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, human papillomavirus, influenza, measles, mumps, rubella, meningococcal, polio, pneumococcal conjugate, rotavirus and varicella.
Claims must be filed within certain time periods. Please contact us to learn more about the filing of potential claims.
