Frequently Asked Questions About Vaccine Injury Claims

We understand that navigating the complexities of vaccine injury claims can be overwhelming. To help you better understand the process and your rights, we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions:

What is a vaccine injury?

A vaccine injury refers to any adverse reaction or harm that occurs following vaccination. These injuries can range from mild side effects to more severe complications, such as allergic reactions, neurological disorders, and autoimmune conditions.

VICP covers vaccines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for routine administration to children, as well as vaccines recommended for adults by the CDC, including the COVID-19 vaccine.

If you or a loved one has experienced adverse reactions or injuries following vaccination, you may be eligible to file a claim through VICP. It’s essential to consult with an experienced vaccine injury lawyer to evaluate your case and determine your eligibility for compensation.

VICP compensates for a wide range of vaccine-related injuries, including but not limited to Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS), shoulder injuries related to vaccine administration (SIRVA), and encephalopathy.

Claims must be filed within a certain timeframe from the onset of symptoms or injury. The statute of limitations varies depending on the type of vaccine and the specific injury, so it’s crucial to consult with a vaccine injury lawyer as soon as possible.

Comprehensive medical documentation is essential to support your claim, including records of vaccination, medical treatment, diagnostic tests, and any relevant expert opinions.

While it’s possible to file a claim without legal representation, having an experienced vaccine injury lawyer on your side can significantly increase your chances of success. A lawyer can navigate the legal complexities of the claims process, gather necessary evidence, and advocate on your behalf.

We understand that pursuing a vaccine injury claim can be financially challenging, which is why we offer our services on a contingency fee basis. This means that you don’t pay any upfront fees, and we only receive payment if we successfully recover compensation on your behalf.

If your claim is denied, you have the right to appeal the decision. An experienced vaccine injury lawyer can help you navigate the appeals process and present additional evidence to support your claim.

The timeline for receiving compensation can vary depending on the complexity of the case and whether the claim is contested. In some instances, compensation may be awarded relatively quickly, while in others, it may take several months or even years to resolve the claim.
