Each year, thousands of people across the country suffer from a vaccine injury or adverse reaction. In fact, flu shot injuries are one of the most common types of vaccine injuries. Flu shots and other vaccines can result in shoulder injuries and various nerve injuries (Guillain-Barre Syndrome, Parsonage-Turner Syndrome, etc.). In addition, severe allergic reactions may occur.
In these cases, the injured person may recover compensation through the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, a special program set up by the federal government to compensate individuals who suffer an injury due to a vaccine.
Our law firm focuses almost exclusively on vaccine injury claims. Here are three important things to know about a vaccine injury claim:
1. Attorney’s fees are paid by the program and the injured individual never pays any other litigation fees.
2. Court hearings may not be necessary, as many claims are settled without attending a hearing. Trials are rare.
3. The vast majority of claims are successful. We have a 98% success rate in winning compensation for our clients.
The list below depicts some of the various injuries, illnesses, and reactions that have been linked to vaccines. This list is not exhaustive. Therefore, if you suffered an injury or illness after vaccination that is not contained below, you still may have a claim. The only way to be sure is to speak with a vaccine attorney.
