If you have read about the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) and are considering filing a claim for you or your loved one’s vaccine-related shoulder injury, you may be wondering if you should hire an attorney. You may be concerned about the cost, and you may be wondering whether hiring an attorney will slow down the process and prolong your family’s recovery.
While individuals are not prohibited from representing themselves in claims under the VICP, the truth is that there are numerous benefits to hiring an attorney to handle your claim. The truth is that hiring an attorney can actually speed up the process, and under the VICP you are entitled to no-cost legal representation. So, do you need a lawyer for your claim? No, not necessarily. Do you want a lawyer for your claim? Absolutely.
Five Reasons to Hire No-Cost Legal Representation for Your Vaccine Shoulder Injury Claim
While filing a vaccine lawsuit is unlike filing any other type of injury-related claim, there are still a number of reasons why it is best to hire experienced legal representation. When it comes to filing a claim under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, an experienced vaccine injury attorney will be able to:
1. Determine if You Have a Claim Under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program
Do you know if you have a claim for a shoulder injury related to vaccine administration (SIRVA), or are you hoping to file and then see what happens? When you and your family are struggling to cope with the consequences of a vaccine-related injury, it is important to make an informed decision before you invest your time and emotions in securing financial compensation.
2. Navigate the Complex Process of Filing a Vaccine Injury Claim
Filing a claim under the VICP requires strict adherence to a complex set of rules and procedures. If you make mistakes, this could delay – or even jeopardize – your financial recovery.
3. Calculate the Full Compensation You Are Entitled to Recover
Under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, the compensation available includes coverage for past and future medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. An experienced vaccine injury attorney will be able to accurately calculate your losses so that you can seek maximum compensation for your vaccine injury losses.
4. Negotiate with the Attorneys from the Department of Justice
In many cases, the best way to resolve a vaccine injury claim is by negotiating a settlement with the attorneys at the Department of Justice (DOJ). The DOJ represents the Department of Health and Human Services in all VICP claims. With sufficient evidence, represented claimants can often secure efficient settlements without the need to go to court.
5. Represent You Before the Vaccine Court in Washington D.C.
If your VICP claim does not settle, it will be decided in the Court of Federal Claims (commonly referred to as the “Vaccine Court”) located in Washington D.C. When seeking to protect your rights in federal court, it is strongly in your best interests to have an experienced attorney on your side.
