Our Emphasis is Vaccine Injury Claims

Throughout your life health care providers will be recommending that you receive specific vaccines at certain points in time in order to protect yourself from serious illnesses. Most children begin receiving their first vaccinations within hours of birth. These vaccinations are beneficial — but they are not without risk. Every year, there are a small percentage of vaccine recipients who are injured as the result of a vaccination. In some cases, the injury occurs because of an adverse reaction to the contents of the vaccine, but in other circumstances, the injury is the result of an incorrectly administered injection.

What You Need To Know About Vaccination Injuries

The fact remains that vaccinations, for the most part, are a safe way to protect a person against serious illnesses that can have lasting consequences. However, there is still a small, but significant, percentage of people who suffer injuries as a result of vaccinations. In fact, one of the most common injuries during flu season is injury to the structures in the shoulder because of improper administration of the shot. Vaccination injuries can range from minor to severe, and, unfortunately, some of them can be fatal.

There is a government compensation program available for individuals who suffer from serious injuries as the result of vaccinations. This compensation program aims to provide financial resources to those who have endured physical or mental suffering after receiving a recommended vaccination. In fact, the program also provides compensation for the legal fees that are incurred during the process. If you or someone that you love has suffered from a vaccination injury, you should know that there is compensation available to you to help you during this trying time.

Vaccine Injury Table

Some of the most common injuries that this compensation program provides for can be found on this Vaccine Injury Table.  However, if you do not see your injury on this table, it is still possible that the program will cover it. Kelly will give you a fair assessment of the likelihood of your injury being covered when she finds out the details of your case in your consultation.

The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program is a no-fault alternative for filing and resolving vaccine injury claims. Any individual who received a vaccine covered under the program and believes he or she suffered an injury as a result can file a petition. We are here to help guide you through the process.

Types Of Vaccination Injuries

While the risk associated with vaccinations is minimal, there are still a variety of injuries that can occur after a vaccine is administered. These injuries include, but are not limited to:

  • Shoulder and Arm Injuries — These are two of the most common injuries, because most vaccinations are administered in the arm and shoulder area. The majority of these injuries are minor, however, many of our clients have suffered serious complications that have required on-going physical therapy or surgery.
  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome — Guillain-Barré Syndrome is a disorder that results in the immune system attacking the nerve cells. It is treatable in most cases, but can be fatal.
  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy — CIDP is a rare autoimmune condition that results in muscle weakness and temporary paralysis. It is treatable in most cases, but can be fatal.
  • Seizures — Seizures can occur spontaneously after receiving certain vaccinations.
  • Arthritis — Arthritis is a risk associated with some vaccinations.
  • Rash — Some people discover that they have a rash at or near the injection site after a vaccination has been administered.
  • Paralysis — Paralysis can occur as the result of nerve or muscle damage after a vaccination. It is usually temporary.
  • Brain Damage — Brain damage is a rare, but serious, side effect of some vaccinations.
  • Death — Complications that arise after some vaccinations can be fatal. These are rare, but they do occur.
