WHAT ARE THE HEPATITIS A AND B VACCINES?
Hepatitis A is a fatal liver disease, and the hepatitis A vaccine protects you from it. The vaccine is usually administered between 12 to 23 months old in 2 doses.
The hepatitis B vaccine helps prevent hepatitis B, which is a liver disease that can range from a mild sickness that lasts a few weeks to a chronic illness. The hepatitis B vaccine is given as either a 2, 3, or 4 dose shot, typically administered between 6-18 months old.
COMPENSATION FOR HEPATITIS VACCINE INJURIES
The federal government has a billion-dollar trust fund to compensate vaccine injury patients called the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).
HEPATITIS VACCINES AND THE VICP
Between 1988 (the first year of the VICP) and 2021, 1,128 petitions were filed for hepatitis vaccine-related injuries. Of those 1,128 cases, 421 of them, that’s around 37%, resulted in financial compensation to the victims.
- Between 1988 and 2021, the VICP awarded financial compensation to at least 84 individuals injured by the hepatitis A vaccines.
- Between 1988 and 2021, the VICP awarded compensation to 359 individuals injured by the hepatitis B vaccines.
Filing a claim in the VICP is complex and receiving compensation even harder. That’s why it’s important you have representation well-versed in federal court, specifically the VICP. mctlaw has won millions of dollars for clients who suffer from vaccine injuries through the VICP. Check out hundreds of our successful client case results.
Are You Eligible to File a Hepatitis Vaccine Injury Claim?
There are some basic requirements to be eligible to file a claim in the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program:
- The vaccine must be one of the types listed on the Vaccine Injury Table by the VICP.
- The claim must be filed within the statute of limitations. That means you have a short window of time to file a claim.
- The vaccine injury must last for at least 6 months after the vaccination was given.
- Or, the reaction to the vaccination resulted in a hospital stay and surgery
- Or, the reaction must have resulted in death.
- You must file a claim within a certain period of time. There is a statute of limitations to file in the NVICP. It’s best to discuss this with an attorney to know when the clock on your case started ticking.

My experience with mctlaw for my hip claim was remarkable, I found the communication to be outstanding. I also felt they did an excellent job setting expectations and then delivering on those stated expectations. From net amount, timing of the settlement, how much each related party would receive etc. they were outstanding. I would highly recommend them. They are very professional and set the bar in vaccine injury practice.
Five stars for mctlaw! Paralegal Leslie Williams did an outstanding job communicating with us and keeping us informed. Thanks for all the help.
I am excited to be receiving my final payment so I can put all this behind me. I am really grateful to everyone who played a part in getting me this well deserved settlement as my life has been negatively impacted over the years.
We cannot thank you enough for the services your firm has provided for Marie and I in our time of need. I could not have chosen a finer firm near or far to represent us.

My first response is “Wow!” It has only been 11 months since I first heard of “SIRVA” and an HHS program that awarded compensation to its victims and only 7 months since MC&T accepted my case. I feel that your efforts on my part made all the difference.
Thanks to you I am living comfortably in my own home with assistance. After my devastating GBS diagnosis from the flu vaccine six years ago, I didn’t know what to do. Thank goodness I found you and your law firm. Thank you so much!
