How The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) Helps People

In those rare, but real instances where a vaccine has caused a serious side effect and someone is injured, the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) offer people an expedited path toward securing the compensation they deserve. The VICP was introduced in 1988 with the goal of reducing the number of lawsuits and preventing shortages of vaccine.

Claims that go through the VICP do not need to prove negligence as is necessary in a normal lawsuit that goes through the courts. The VICP is a no-fault program where there is only a need to show the injury and that it was more likely than not caused by the vaccine. Having to prove less elements makes the case less complex and quicker to reach a final conclusion. This allows injured parties to secure compensation more quickly.

Help Sooner Rather Than Later

Securing compensation sooner rather than later can be a great benefit to those who have been injured by a vaccine side effect. It can provide financial relief and peace of mind to injured people more quickly than pursuing relief through a traditional lawsuit against the vaccine manufacturer or the hospital or clinic that administered the vaccine.

Other Benefits Of The VICP

Attorney's fees can be covered under the VICP even if no association is established between the vaccine and the injuries a person suffered. The program only requires that claim was based on good faith and that there was a reasonable basis for bringing the claim. In a traditional lawsuit, attorney's fees, which can be substantial, are generally only awarded if the person bringing the suit succeeds.

Experienced Help Navigating The VICP

The VICP is an incredibly beneficial program, but, in order to get the most out of it, it is best to work with an attorney who has extensive experience shepherding claims through it. Make sure your attorney knows how to make the VICP work for you.
