Did you or a loved one suffer an adverse event after receiving a vaccine?
Vaccines like the flu shot and tetanus shot are incredibly effective at preventing serious and potentially fatal illnesses. But while rare, adverse events related to vaccinations or vaccine administration can and do occur.
As one of the nation’s most experienced vaccine law firms, the landmark cases litigated by our New Hampshire vaccine injury lawyers played a significant role 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 New Hampshire vaccine injury lawyers serve clients in Belknap County, Carroll County, Cheshire County, Coos County, Grafton County, Hillsborough County, Merrimack County, Rockingham County, Strafford County, and Sullivan County. 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 New Hampshire
The NVICP is a federal program that allows victims of rare vaccine injuries to pursue compensation for past and future medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering, without filing a civil lawsuit. Since its inception in the late 1980s, the program has paid out more than $4.5 billion to nearly 10,000 claimants.
The NVICP covers injuries associated with most vaccines routinely administered in the United States, 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)
Compensation is available for a range of vaccine injuries, from injection site complications to severe neurological injuries causing paralysis and, in rare cases, death. Some of the most common injuries and complications involved in NVICP claims 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)
The NVICP requires that eligible claims be filed with the United States Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C., where all of our New Hampshire 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. Once a case is resolved, all legal fees can be paid separately by the Court of Federal Claims.
