When Vaccines Result In Injury And Death
While the public health benefits of vaccines to guard against viruses and diseases like polio, small pox, measles, rubella and influenza are widely known, less discussed are the thousands of adverse reactions, injuries and even deaths that have been directly linked to vaccines. If you or a loved one suffered harm or injury as the result of a vaccine, it is important to reach out to an attorney who is knowledgeable about vaccine injuries and the related legal procedures.
In 1988, the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was established as a means to compensate individuals who suffered injuries or whose children or loved ones suffered injury or death due to a vaccine. At Rogers, Hofrichter & Karrh, LLC, our attorneys help Georgia residents recover compensation for the harm, injuries and losses suffered in the wake of receiving a vaccine.
Injuries Linked To Vaccines
In some cases, an individual may have an allergic or other adverse reaction to the actual vaccine substance. In other cases, injuries stem from errors made during the actual administration of an injection.
Common injuries that have been linked to vaccines include:
- Encephalopathy or encephalitis
- Acute infection and/or inflammation
- Vasovagal syncope
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Brachial neuritis
If you believe that a vaccine was the cause of your or your loved one’s injury or death, contact an attorney at our firm today. We will help you file a claim with the United States Court of Federal Claims in Washington D.C. We are highly knowledgeable about this special process and the documentation and evidence that is needed to achieve a positive outcome.
