Vaccine Injuries Are Real and Deserve Compensation

Vaccines were developed to combat and prevent a range of illnesses. While vaccination can prevent a serious injury or even death from a disease, it can also cause a vaccine injury. If you or a loved one has suffered from a vaccine injury, you should contact a Philadelphia vaccine injury attorney immediately for a free consultation and to begin building your vaccine injury claim.

National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program

The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) is a Federal Program administered by the Department of Health and Human Services, which was established in 1986 according to the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (42 U.S.C. §§ 300aa-1 et seq) to combat the growing problem of vaccine-related injuries by creating a no-fault system of compensation.

Under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, vaccine injury victims can file federal claims in the United States Court of Federal Claims. According to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, vaccine injury victims must either prove they suffered an injury from a vaccine listed in Vaccine Injury Table within the applicable timeline or prove by a preponderance of the evidence, i.e., 51%, that the vaccine caused their injuries by (1) presenting a medical theory which links the vaccine to their injuries, (2) a clear timeline showing the vaccine caused their injuries, (3) and a clear temporal relationship between their injuries and the vaccine.

Types of Injuries Suffered From Vaccination

Despite scientific advances, humans are still afflicted with age-old diseases like seasonal influenza. Many of these diseases can be prevented with simple and effective life-saving vaccines. Unfortunately, a small percentage of people will suffer a vaccine injury.

SIRVA, or Shoulder Injury as a Result of Vaccine Administration

Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration (SIRVA) is a common vaccine injury which can occur when a vaccine is not properly injected into the shoulder injection site. Victims who suffer shoulder injuries from vaccines experience swelling, pain, and decreased range of motion. If you suffered a shoulder injury, a vaccine injury lawyer can advise you of your legal options. 

CIDP, or Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyradiculoneuropathy

Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) is a rare autoimmune disorder which a vaccine can trigger. This vaccine injury causes the body to attack the fibers which insulate nerves. A vaccine injury lawyer at Win Big can help you build a strong vaccine injury lawsuit.

ADEM, or Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis

Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM) is a neurological disorder. It can cause swelling of the brain or spine. It can also cause nerve damage which is why representation by a vaccine injury attorney is essential.

GBS, or Guillain-Barré Syndrome

Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS) is a rare disorder in which the body’s immune system attacks the nerves. Guillain Barre Syndrome can be triggered after receiving a flu shot and can cause paralysis in severe vaccine injury cases. Due to the potentially life-altering effects of GBS, contact a vaccine lawyer immediately if you suspect you suffered a vaccine injury after receiving a flu shot.

Other Equally Concerning Conditions

While vaccines can prevent the spread of dangerous diseases, they can also cause victims to develop other medical conditions and suffer serious injuries. While the chance of suffering a vaccine injury is extremely low, there is always a possibility of suffering a serious injury due to an adverse reaction. Due to the complex laws surrounding the vaccine injury claims process, retaining a law firm that can properly build and litigate your vaccine legal case is crucial.

Anaphylaxis

Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction that can occur after receiving a vaccine. In short, the body’s immune system releases several chemicals after the vaccine is administered. These chemicals can cause breathing difficulties and extreme drops in blood pressure.

Central Nervous Disorders

Central nervous system disorders can cause a range of symptoms. Mild symptoms include headaches and post-vaccination syncope (“needle-stick”). Severe symptoms include transverse myelitis and seizures.

Encephalopathy

Encephalopathy is a general term for brain damage. A vaccine injury victim who suffers encephalopathy may suffer cognitive defects and undergo personality changes. Encephalopathy may result from the MMR vaccine or the mumps vaccine.

COVID Vaccination Injuries Have Redress

In early 2020, COVID-19 caused severe disruptions and millions of deaths. Fortunately, several life-saving vaccines were developed, which helped end the pandemic. While the vaccines designed to combat COVID have proven safe and effective, a small percentage of people suffer vaccine injuries.

Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP)

Due to the emergency nature surrounding the COVID-19 virus and the development of the vaccine, a victim who suffers a vaccine injury from the COVID vaccine cannot make a claim with the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. Instead, a COVID vaccine injury victim must make a claim with the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program. A vaccine lawyer at Win Big can help you navigate the CICP process and pursue your vaccine injury claim.

Vaccines That May Cause Injuries

According to overwhelming scientific studies, vaccines are safe, effective, and have no long-term side effects. However, a small majority of people suffer severe reactions, which is why it is essential to contact a vaccine injury law firm to obtain a free consultation.

Chickenpox

The chickenpox vaccine can cause mild vaccine injuries, including soreness and fever. In a severe case, a victim may suffer a vaccine injury due to an infection of the spine or brain or from developing pneumonia.

Diphtheria, Tetanus

The diphtheria and tetanus vaccines can also cause mild injuries such as swelling at the injection site, mild fever, and vomiting. In rare vaccine cases, victims will suffer severe allergic reactions.

Hepatitis A

The hepatitis A vaccine can cause various vaccine injuries, including headaches, nausea, and fever. While rare, the hepatitis A vaccine can cause victims to develop hives and difficulty breathing due to swelling in the throat.

Hepatitis B

Common side effects of the hepatitis B vaccine include fever and soreness in the injection site. Similar to the hepatitis A vaccine, victims can also suffer throat swelling, rapid heartbeats, and difficulty breathing.

Human Papillomavirus

The human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine can cause headaches, nausea, and fever. A small percentage of victims experience severe allergic reactions.

Meningococcal

The meningococcal vaccine can cause victims to suffer muscle pain, headaches, and fever. In rare cases, this vaccine also increases the likelihood of a victim developing Guillain Barre Syndrome.

Polio

Sometimes, people who receive the polio vaccine experience joint pain, vomiting, and low-grade fevers. In severe cases, the polio vaccine causes allergic reactions and shoulder injuries.

Rotavirus

The rotavirus vaccine can cause vaccine injuries, including intussusception, a condition in which part of the intestine folds into itself. Our vaccine lawyers have experience litigating complex federal claims.
