Vaccine injuries are controversial. The controversy is one of the reasons why those suffering vaccine injuries are not having their claims filed in the most efficient manner.
The other factor contributing to unresolved claims is due to awareness. Reports show that the public is not highly aware of federal options available to vaccine injury victims. Our injury lawyers in Raleigh wanted to provide a brief breakdown of the The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. The program offers:
- Financial support to help cover victims' lost wages, treatment and care
- Review of claims by government medical and legal teams
- A fund that is maintained by a small tax paid every time a vaccine is purchased
Individuals who received vaccinations on or after October 1, 1988 may be eligible, however there is a statute of limitations for vaccine injury claims.
Navigating the claims process is complicated and stressful. Our North Carolina vaccine injury lawyers at Brent Adams & Associates handle injury claims on behalf of victims. If you are not sure about your rights or would like to know how to start the claim process, call our attorneys. All consultations are provided at no cost, and once we are retained we are only paid if we win compensation for our client.
