Did Your Child Suffer Injuries After Receiving a Vaccine?

Many adults and children receive vaccines to help prevent disease and serious health issues. Although adverse health reactions to vaccines are rare, they do occur and can change the lives of families forever. Congress created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) to help provide financial compensation to individuals who have suffered injuries after receiving a vaccine. The fund is available to individuals of all ages, including adults and children.

Covered vaccines under the program include:

  • Diptheria
  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Human PapillomaVirus
  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Polio
  • Tetanus
  • Varicella (chickenpox)

At Kahn Law Firm, LLP, we can assist clients with their petitions so that they can be properly compensated. Our personal injury team has over 95 years of collective experience and has helped many clients file effective petitions for vaccine injuries through the program.

Process for Filing a Vaccine Injury Claim

The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program is available to individuals regardless of who was at fault. Parents or legal guardians of children and adults with disabilities due to vaccines can file a petition if they received a covered vaccine.

The process for filing a vaccine injury petition:

  • Fill out a petition with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims that includes medical records and documents by medical experts to support your injury
  • U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will review your petition to determine your eligibility
  • If your claim is approved you will be paid the appropriate amount in damages

Although the process is meant to be simple and non-adversarial, the reality is that it is unnecessarily complicated and confusing. Claims often travel through the government's complex bureaucracy that may require you to go through hearings in front of an official called the "special master." We recommended that you hire an attorney for help. There is NO COST to clients because the program pays for all legal fees.
