Minnesota Vaccine Injury Attorney
When a vaccine causes serious injury
Vaccines are generally safe and prevent the spread of disease. But for some individuals, vaccines can cause injury. The injury may appear immediately after the vaccine is given, or the injury may not appear for years. Children and adults can be injured by vaccines.
While injuries from vaccines are rare, doctors need to be aware of the symptoms so that patients can receive appropriate care and financial compensation. Through the National Vaccine Injury Program, vaccine manufacturers contribute to a fund to compensate children and adults with verified vaccine injuries. View this brochure for more information on the National Vaccine Injury Program.
It can be difficult to deal with vaccine health problems and, at the same time, explore the legal options available. Lommen Abdo lawyers have been in the forefront in efforts to obtain justice for those injured by vaccines.
- The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 established the National Vaccine Injury Compensation program.
- The program compensates individuals on a no-fault basis, meaning that the claimant does not have to prove negligence.
- Claims are based on the Vaccine Injury Table established by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
