Our vaccine injury lawyers can represent you in the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) no matter where you live in the country. We help people in every state get compensation for serious side effects to vaccines.
If you’ve experienced a severe vaccine reaction lasting more than 6 months, you might qualify for a payout from the VICP. The program has a $4-billion dollar trust fund dedicated to compensating vaccine-injured people in the United States.
The lawyer you hire for a vaccine injury claim does not need to be located near you. It’s more important that you hire an attorney who has a successful track record of getting clients financial awards in the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, or VICP. Learn more about the difference between a vaccine injury lawyer and a personal injury lawyer.
Which vaccines are covered by the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program?
Covered vaccines include those routinely recommended for children or pregnant women. You can ONLY qualify for the VICP if you’ve gotten one of these immunizations. The COVID-19 vaccine is NOT covered by this program.
Vaccines eligible for compensation from the VICP are:
- Flu vaccines
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
- Pertussis or Whooping Cough
- Pneumococcal conjugate
- Varicella or Chicken Pox
- COVID-19 VACCINES ARE NOT COVERED BY THIS PROGRAM
- Vaccine injuries related to COVID-19 are covered by the CICP
To Qualify for Compensation in the Vaccine Injury Program:
- Your injury must last for at least six months after you got the vaccine, OR
- Your injury required a hospital stay or surgery, even if that happens before the 6-month time period, OR
- The vaccine injury resulted in death.
- You have a very limited period of time to file a claim.
How Much Can a Vaccine Injury Victim Recover?
You can get paid back for past medical expenses and future medical care. Your award may include pain and suffering damages up to $250,000. The program can also reimburse you for money lost while you couldn’t work. The estate of a deceased victim is eligible to recover $250,000 as a death benefit.
Filing a vaccine injury claim in the VICP without an attorney is a bad idea because the process is so complex. You may hurt your own case without knowing it. That’s why there is no cost to hire a vaccine injury attorney to help maximize the chances of getting money from the program.
