Wisconsin Vaccination Related Injuries Lawyers

Every day, adults and children throughout America are safely vaccinated against disease and illnesses. Most vaccines are safe, and the vast majority of people do not suffer serious injury as a result of routine vaccinations; however, there are rare cases where severe and debilitating reactions to vaccinations take place.

In recognition of the rare possibility of injury or harm from vaccinations, several decades ago the Federal Government instituted the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). This program is designed to compensate people who are injured by certain vaccines. However, the claims process itself is complicated. That is why it is important to consider working with a firm that is experienced and understands the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

There is no cost to you if you hire Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®’s licensed National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program attorneys to represent you. A special fund created by the Federal Government under the NVICP pays the attorneys’ fees and costs for you.

Vaccines Covered by the NVICP

When a person is hurt by a vaccine, they may be able to receive recourse from the government. Vaccines that are covered by the United States Court of Federal Claims include the following:

  • Tetanus toxoid-containing vaccines
  • Pertussis antigen-containing vaccines
  • Measles, mumps and rubella virus-containing vaccines in any combination
  • Rubella virus-containing vaccines
  • Measles virus-containing vaccines
  • Polio live virus-containing vaccines
  • Hepatitis B antigen-containing vaccines
  • Hemophilus influenzae
  • Varicella vaccine
  • Rotavirus vaccine
  • Pneumococcal conjugate vaccines
  • Hepatitis A vaccines
  • Trivalent and Quadrivalent influenza vaccines
  • Meningococcal vaccines
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines
  • The program also provides for compensation for Shoulder Injuries from Vaccine Administration (SIRVA) cases

If you have suffered adverse complications as a result of one of these vaccines, you may be able to file a claim under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. Our team of attorneys understands the ins and outs of the complicated NVICP claims process and is prepared to help you through it to the end.
