What Is The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program?

Those injured by vaccines qualify for assistance from the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP), provided by the federal government. Founded in 1909 by Congress through the Vaccine Act, the no-fault system provides individuals with the compensation they need in order to treat and help pay for the expenses associated with their vaccine injury or illness.

Who Can File A Claim For Compensation In A Vaccine Court?

There are certain requirements individuals must meet in order to qualify to file federal claims with a vaccine injury attorney. To be eligible to file vaccine injury claims, individuals must adhere to the following requirements:

  • The type of vaccine must be covered under the Vaccine Act; that info can be found under the vaccine injury table.
  • A parent/guardian must file for minors.
  • The vaccination must have been given within the United States.
  • The vaccine injury or illness must last a minimum of 6 months, causing medical attention and/or hospitalization or even death in order for a federal claim to be filed.
  • Deadlines for filing must be met in order to qualify for the vaccine injury compensation program.

A vaccine injury claim is filed with the United States Court of Federal Claims and can be done with help provided by our vaccine injury lawyers. Even if you feel like you may not meet the criteria, every case is unique on its own. It is always suggested to discuss the details of your case with a vaccine injury attorney in New Jersey, and you can do so by contacting our law office today.

Is The COVID-19 Vaccine Covered By The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program?

Currently, COVID-19 vaccine injuries are not covered by the (NVICP). The exclusion of the COVID-19 vaccine is most likely caused by its current classification, being used for a global pandemic, including that children are yet to qualify to receive it.

What Are Common Vaccine Injuries & Illnesses?

Vaccine injuries are uncommon, but they can result in significant health problems in both children and adults. If a vaccination has injured you or a loved one, you may be eligible for compensation through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. Learn about some of the most frequent vaccination side effects.

  • Shoulder Injury Related To Vaccine Administration (SIRVA) - Following a vaccine shot into the shoulder or upper arm, soreness and stiffness are common and normal short-term side effects. When a patient gets SIRVA, it's a lot more severe than just a sore arm or minimal shoulder injury. When the vaccine shot is not administered correctly, it often leads to insertion into the deltoid bursa, causing extreme shoulder pain causing limited mobility.
  • Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura - This condition commonly happens upon administration of the mumps, measles, or Rubella vaccine in children and adults. Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura is when the blood cannot clot properly after vaccination, leading to internal bleeding, inordinate bleeding, or even bleeding found under the skin.
  • Guillain-Barre Syndrome - This syndrome is usually seen after the influenza (flu shot), tetanus vaccine, Hepatitis B, and several more. This disorder causes your body to have a severe immune response that essentially attacks your nerves, causing weakness and tingling, leading to paralysis.

If you've suffered any of these complications after receiving a vaccination, contact an experienced New Jersey vaccine lawyer from NJ Injury Guys to schedule your free consultation today.
