Vaccine Injury Claims

The law firm of Scanlon and Elliott represents children and adults who have been injured by vaccines. While vaccines prevent serious and life-threatening diseases, in rare cases these same vaccines can cause serious injury and even death. The adverse effects of vaccines include, but are not limited to, Guillain Barré Syndrome, shoulder injuries related to vaccine administration, chronic arthritis, anaphylaxis, and encephalopathy or encephalitis.

As a result of these adverse effects, the Federal Government created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (“VICP”) to compensate persons who, as a result of the administration of vaccine, have suffered injury or death. The program allows injured people to make a claim for past and future expenses, past and future lost wages, along with non-economic damages such as past and future pain and suffering for injuries caused by a VICP-covered vaccine. Attorney fees are paid by the program. The program compensates the attorney for the injured party so that the injured party does not have to pay the attorney out of the monies that have been awarded.

Scanlon and Elliott’s attorneys have experience in the preparation and handling of vaccine claims on behalf of injured people. Our attorneys are admitted to practice in the United States Court of Federal Claims, which is the court that hears and tries these cases.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a vaccine, please contact our attorneys for help.
