Experienced Attorneys For Vaccine Injury Claims

Vaccinations are a highly debated topic in the United States right now, and for good reason. When the health of children is in question, advocates work very hard to ensure that safety is a primary concern. The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) is one way the government helps adults or children who have experienced vaccine-related injury.

If your child suffered unusual or worrying symptoms shortly after receiving a vaccination, call our Houston, Texas, office at 713-352-7883. Our attorneys can help you determine what step to take next and, if applicable, how to file a claim in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims to be compensated under VICP.

Requirements For Filing A Claim

Filing a claim for a vaccine-related injury is complex. The symptoms must:

  • Occur shortly after the vaccination was given
  • Last longer than 6 months
  • Be clearly more severe than before the vaccine was received.

The inoculation itself must also be included on a specific government-authorized list in order for your claim to be considered. The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) of 1986 limits the types of claims that can be filed and protects vaccine manufacturers from a certain amount of liability for injuries.

Because of the difficulty in proving causation, you need a lawyer who is skilled and knowledgeable about this area of the law. At Reich & Binstock, we have decades of experience in pharmaceutical and medical device injury cases. We will work with you personally to understand the details of your case and aggressively pursue the justice you deserve.
