Protect Yourself From Incurring Costs of Vaccine Injuries
Vaccine Injury Attorney
Under Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), there are strict Statute of Limitations which must be followed. Statutes of Limitations are laws that dictate the maximum time after an injury or death that the vaccine claim can be initiated.
VICP laws include the following:
- In the event of death from vaccination, a petition for vaccine compensation must be filed within 2 years from the time of death in U.S. Federal Court of Claims, Washington, D.C.
- In the event of injury from vaccination, a petition for vaccine compensation must be filed within 3 years from the date of the first adverse symptom in U.S. Federal Court of Claims, Washington, D.C.
- These time limitations for filing a claim cannot be extended even if the injured party was a minor at the time of the injury.
In order to be eligible to file a vaccine claim for compensation, the injury has to last for longer than 6 months or result in a surgery. It is important to preserve critical evidence such as proof of your vaccination. A common occurrence is that vaccines are administered at minute clinics or mobile health units, which may make it more difficult to obtain proof of vaccination after passage of time. Don’t wait, protect yourself and contact a firm with expertise in vaccine litigation such as Jeffrey S. Pop & Associates.
