If you believe you have been injured by a vaccine, contact our accident attorneys today to see how we can help you. Vaccine injuries could be very complex, especially when trying to figure out who is responsible for your injuries. There are several different types of injuries that are vaccine-related, and could be compensated for. Although vaccines are meant to prevent any future diseases and illnesses, unfortunately, getting the vaccine may also cause injuries. You may be able to recover a variety of compensation, including lost wages and medical bills. Our firm has a successful track record recovering compensation for our clients, and we always work to make sure that those responsible for an injury are held liable.
Similar to any type of medical procedure, there are sometimes risks involved with getting the vaccine. Some injuries could be very minor, and some could be very major and cause severe permanent injuries.
What is the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program?
This is a program established by the federal government to provide compensation for Americans who have been injured by a vaccine. It is important to note that the covid-19 vaccine is not covered under this program. At this time, our attorneys are not taking any covid-19 vaccine injury claims.
Vaccines that are covered under the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program are:
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Haemophilus influenzae type B
- Pneumococcal conjugate
If you have experienced an injury from any of the above vaccines, contact our top-rated accident injury attorneys today to see how we can help you. This list is constantly changing according to the Secretary of the Department of Health. To see if your injuries qualify, contact our accident attorneys.
Why should you hire our vaccine injury attorneys at Megeredchian Law?
Having a lawyer on your side will assist you in several different ways. First, it may be very difficult to navigate through the vaccine injury Compensation Program alone. There are several different documents that must be filled out, along with constantly communicating with the federal government. Our accident attorneys have experience handling vaccine injuries, and understand what is needed in order to pursue a vaccine injury claim.
Financially, you may also recover more when you are represented by an attorney than if you navigate through the legal process not represented. Our accident attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, this means that you do not have to pay for attorneys up front. We will take on all the risks associated with your claim and navigate through the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.
How do I file a vaccine injury claim?
The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program hears cases in the special court that is similar to a trial court. The court is located in Washington D.C., clients do not necessarily have to be at that location. Telephonic appearances can also be made. Further, even if you were responsible for your injuries, the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program is a no-fault system. All the injured victim has to show is that they received the vaccine, and they suffered an injury. Once they approve these two steps, the victim will be able to seek recovery from the program.
What if I have suffered a shoulder injury from the vaccine?
We understand that getting the vaccine can oftentimes leave your arm swollen and numb for a couple hours after. Usually, in rare circumstances, the injury may last a couple days. Unfortunately, if the vaccine is not administered properly, it could last for several months, even years. Shoulder injuries could cause numbness, even limiting your range of motion. This occurs when the person administering the vaccine gives a shot too high on the arm.
This is referred to as a SIRVA, also known as a shoulder injury related to vaccine administration. This occurs when the actual injury is caused by the needle itself, not the actual vaccine. You could have a claim for SIRVA and under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program as well.
What are examples of vaccine shoulder injuries?
Examples of vaccine shoulder injuries include:
- Rotator cuff
- Fluid buildup
- Loss of motion
- Brachial neuritis
- Frozen shoulder
If you have experienced any of the above symptoms in your shoulder caused by the vaccine, contact our accident attorneys immediately to see how you can recover compensation. Several different symptoms of these injuries could occur gradually through time. Many may not even realize that these injuries that are suffering are caused by the vaccine since time has passed.
How To Treat a Shoulder Injury From a Vaccine
If you have suffered any type of shoulder injury from a vaccine, you most likely will need prescription medication for the inflammation and pain, ice therapy, steroid injections, physical therapy to recover mobility, along with surgery to repair the damage to the ligaments. Surgery may require you to be under anesthesia.
These different types of medical treatments could be very costly, and can add up. We understand that it is not fair for a person to pay for all their medical bills and not be reimbursed if the injury is caused by another party. You will be able to receive compensation for all these different types of medical bills. Contact our attorneys to see how you can hold the liable party responsible for your injuries.
What type of compensation could I receive for my vaccine injury?
The amount of compensation you can receive depends on the circumstances of the accident. For example, if you have suffered permanent injury, you most likely will recover a larger amount in compensation compared to someone who only has suffered minor injuries. Examples of compensation you could receive include:
- Attorney’s fees
- Pain and suffering
- Past lost wages
- Future lost wages
- Medical bills
Who is liable for my vaccine injury?
We have seen many different parties held liable for a vaccine injury. For more information, and to determine which specific party could be held liable for your vaccine injury, contact our top-rated attorneys today. Examples of liable parties include:

What should I do after I have been injured by a vaccine?
We advise you to seek medical care immediately after experiencing an injury after a vaccine. It is important to get medical assistance immediately in order to have these recorded. Usually, vaccine injuries may be difficult to prove when there are no medical records. Having medical records allows us to prove your injuries to the other party.
