As the victim of a shoulder injury related to vaccine administration (SIRVA), you may be entitled to have your medical bills and other losses covered by a federal program called the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). At the Center for Vaccine Shoulder Pain Recovery, we help individuals who have been injured by vaccines obtain money for their medical and economic losses and the pain and suffering they have experienced.
About the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program
The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program is a federal no-fault compensation program designed to make it easier for individuals who experience shoulder pain caused by vaccines and other types of vaccine injuries, to recover money for their pain and suffering and other economic losses. Prior to the Program’s enactment by Congress, individuals who experienced injury as the result of vaccination were forced to sue vaccine manufacturers and administrators through traditional tort litigation. Passage of the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, however, has served to reduce lawsuits against vaccine administrators and vaccine manufacturers, while providing a less adversarial path to individuals seeking compensation for their injuries.
With the passage of the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, individuals who claim vaccine injury may now file their claims against the Department of Health and Human Services without the need to prove fault prior to receiving a financial award. Under the Vaccine Program’s no-fault system, once an individual is capable of demonstrating that he or she received a vaccine listed on the Vaccine Injury Table, and that the injury began within a specified time frame, causation is presumed. In addition, individuals may also recover by proving vaccine causation for unspecified injuries as well. Both methods of vaccine causation allow individuals claiming vaccine injuries to obtain money for their injuries in an expedited manner.
Compensation Available Through the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program
Under the vaccine program, individuals suffering from vaccine injury are able to recover compensation for a number of financial and non-financial losses. These include:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future lost income
- Pain and suffering
- Out-of-pocket expenses
The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program also pays the claimant’s legal fees separately from any award of compensation they might receive.
Many claims filed under the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program are resolved through settlement. However, filing a claim under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program is a complicated legal process that differs from traditional tort litigation. This is why hiring a qualified vaccine lawyer to represent you in this process is highly advised.
