Learn More About Compensation for Vaccine-Related Injuries

More than 250 million vaccines are administered each year in the U.S. to guard against potentially deadly diseases. However, a very small fraction of cases result in vaccine-related injuries -- usually not because of the vaccine itself, but because of how the shot is administered.

(For more on that, please see our recent post on SIRVA -- Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration.)

Make no mistake: we need vaccines to protect our children, ourselves and society as a whole. But when vaccine-related injuries occur, victims deserve compensation. 

Along with doctors, astute parents and many, many others, the U.S. government understands how important vaccines are to public health. That is one reason Congress created the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) more than 25 years ago.

The program is a no-fault system for providing vaccine injury victims with the compensation they need and deserve. It's a no-fault system to ensure that vaccine manufacturers are not hit with overwhelming lawsuits that could threaten the production of much-needed vaccines.

The trouble is that vaccine injury claims can take some time to resolve, especially if the injured person is not represented by an attorney with experience in this particular area of law.

An important aspect of the VICP is that victims' attorney fees are paid out of the program, which is funded by a minimal tax paid on each vaccine. In other words, victims are not responsible for legal fees.

If you or someone you know has suffered SIRVA or another kind of vaccine-related injury, contact a lawyer to discuss your case.
