Chattanooga Vaccine Injuries
If you have suffered an adverse reaction or illness after receiving a vaccination, you may be entitled to compensation under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). Under this program, Congress has created an avenue of recovery for those who have been seriously injured due to a vaccine. Millions of vaccinations are administered nationwide each year, and the large majority of them go uneventful. However, for a select few individuals, a vaccine could have traumatizing effects on the mind and the body. If you or a loved has suffered negative side effects after receiving a vaccine, contact the Chattanooga vaccine lawyers at Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz. You may be entitled to compensation for your lost wages (past and future), your medical treatment (past and future), and your pain and suffering.

Several different injuries have been linked to certain vaccines. Common vaccine injuries include shoulder injuries, paralysis, allergic reactions, and neurological disorders. Anyone who has suffered from a vaccine injury can bring a claim. In order to be considered for compensation, the injury sustained must have lasted at least 6 months, or resulted in hospitalization with surgery. Moreover, for any vaccine claim to be considered, the injured party must file a petition with the vaccine court within 3 years of the first symptom of the condition resulting from the vaccine. If death was the ultimate result, the deceased’s legal representative has 2 years from the date of the death and within 4 years of the signs of the first symptoms of the vaccine related condition/illness.
