Have you or someone you know sustained an injury or suffered shoulder symptoms or experienced a severe, debilitating reaction shorty after receiving a flu shot or other vaccine?  If your answer is yes, you may be eligible for and entitled to compensation through the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). The VICP fund is maintained by the federal government and is designed specifically to provide funds for individuals who have been injured by a vaccine.  Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration (SIRVA) is a serious injury caused by administration in the upper arm of a vaccine covered by the program’s “Vaccine Injury Table” which may require surgery to repair damage to the shoulder’s ligaments and tendons. In applying for the funds, you aren’t suing the doctor or the manufacturer of the drug.  Congress created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) to help victims of adverse vaccine reactions.

To be eligible for compensation, vaccine injury cases must be filed within the following periods: Injury claims: within 3 years after the first symptom or manifestation of onset or of the significant aggravation of the injury; or for death claims: within 2 years of the death.

Richard L. Hughes, a founding partner of Mogab & Hughes Attorneys, P.C., has tried approximately 300 injury cases to conclusion in Missouri, Texas, Illinois and Arkansas and has argued more than 60 cases in The US Eighth Circuit and MO Courts of Appeals.  He is also admitted to The US Court of Federal Claims, allowing him to represent clients who have been injured by vaccines. His extensive litigation background in handling injury claims, gives him a unique and exceptional perspective in dealing with injured clients and their families.

There is NO COST to Hire Our Vaccine Injury Law Firm – Our legal fees are NOT taken out of your monetary award. You keep 100% of your compensation. We do not take a percentage of your compensation.

Missouri Pedestrian Accident Attorney – Pedestrians Killed By Cars at Highest Rates Since 1990

Pedestrian deaths in the United States reached a 30 year high in 2018, as an estimated 6,227 people died on foot from car crashes nationwide last year. Pedestrian deaths account for about 16% of motor vehicle crash deaths. Many of the deaths are due to the growing shift away from passenger vehicles to sport utility vehicles and light trucks, which generally cause greater injury to pedestrians than cars at the same speed. The number of pedestrian deaths involving sport utility vehicles has grown by 50% from 2013 to 2017, compared with a 30% increase for passenger cars. Also, distractions caused by smart phones are a growing concern causing pedestrian deaths.

If you or a loved one has been struck by a motor vehicle and are in need of a Pedestrian – Car Accident Lawyer in the St. Louis area, please call me, David Hughes, at 314-241-4477 to discuss your potential case. The consultation is free and I do not charge a legal fee unless I recover on your behalf.
