Victim Of Shoulder Injury Due To Vaccine Administration?

Almost everyone has had some sort of vaccination at one point in their lives. In fact, many people get the flu shot each year to protect themselves from getting the potentially deadly virus.  Typically, we experience tenderness in the shot area of the shoulder, which usually goes away in a couple of days. Sometimes, though, while not too common, the pain can last for an extended period of time which can lead to a limited range of motion in the shoulder, intense pain, and other shoulder issues. This occurrence is referred to as Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration, also known as SIRVA.

The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program

The team at Schexnaydre Law Firm can help those with vaccination injuries or who have lost a loved one because of improperly administered or defective vaccines and assist with filing a claim with the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) for their losses.

Established in 1986, the NVICP was designed to stabilize the cost of vaccines, ensure there were adequate available supplies, and to create a forum for those with vaccine related injuries. The NVICP Trust Fund is receives $.75 from each vaccine recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention given to children. The funds from the trust fund are dedicated to compensating people with vaccine related injuries or death.

Claims can be filed with the NVICP if you or a family member were injured by a vaccine covered by the program. Parents as well as legal guardians can file claims on behalf of their children and disabled adults, which will be decided by the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.

While you may attempt to navigate the claim filing process with the NVICP yourself, vaccine injury claims are much different than typical product liability claims and have their own set of rules and regulations that must be followed. Our experienced legal team can help you avoid filing mistakes and help protect your interests and get the compensation you deserve.
