Were you or a loved one injured by the flu shot, tetanus shot, or other vaccine?
Vaccines have saved countless lives and are integral to our national health policy. It is also true that adverse reactions to vaccinations or vaccine administration can rarely occur.
As one of the most experienced vaccine injury law firms in the United States, our Massachusetts vaccine injury lawyers have successfully pursued landmark cases that were instrumental in shaping the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP), helping to make it friendlier and more generous to the victims of vaccine-related injuries.
Our Massachusetts vaccine injury lawyers serve clients in Barnstable, Berkshire, Bristol, Dukes, Essex, Franklin, Hampden, Hampshire, Middlesex, Nantucket, Norfolk, Plymouth, Suffolk, and Worcester counties, as well as across all 50 states. If you or a member of your family suffered an adverse event following vaccination, reach out and schedule your free consultation today.
Compensation for Vaccine Injuries in the State of Massachusetts
While most vaccine side effects are mild and result in only short-term discomfort, the NVICP awards hundreds of millions of dollars each year to individuals and families who suffered serious harm after receiving vaccines recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, including:
- Diphtheria (e.g., DTP, DTaP, Tdap, DT, Td, TT)
- Haemophilus influenzae type b polysaccharide conjugate vaccines (e.g., Hib)
- Hepatitis A (e.g., HAV)
- Hepatitis B (e.g., HBV)
- Human papillomavirus (e.g., HPV)
- Seasonal influenza (e.g., Flu Shot)
- Measles (e.g., MMR)
- Mumps (e.g., MMR, MR, M)
- Meningococcal (e.g., MCV4, MPSV4, MenB-FHbp, MenB-4C)
- Pertussis (e.g., DT, DTaP, Tdap)
- Pneumococcal conjugate (e.g., PCV)
- Polio (e.g., OPV or IPV)
- Rotavirus (e.g., RV)
- Rubella (e.g., MMR, MR, R)
- Tetanus (e.g., Td)
- Varicella/Chickenpox (e.g., VAR)
Vaccine injuries covered by the NVICP range from injection site complications to neurological injuries resulting in paralysis and, rarely, death. Some of the most common injuries and conditions eligible for compensation under the Program include:
- Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS)
- Shoulder injury related to vaccine administration (SIRVA)
- Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM)
- Transverse myelitis
- Parsonage-Turner Syndrome (brachial neuritis)
- Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction)
- Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP)
- Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP)
To receive compensation through the NVICP, eligible claims must be filed with the United States Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C., where all of our Massachusetts vaccine lawyers are admitted to practice. Unlike traditional lawsuits, an injured party awarded compensation through the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program does not pay an attorney a percentage of the compensation award. Instead, all legal fees can be paid separately by the Court of Federal Claims once a case is resolved.
