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.

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. Instead, our legal fees are paid separately and directly by the United States Court of Federal Claims at the end of the case.

Our Law Firm Pays any Additional Costs of Litigating Your Case – Mogab & Hughes Attorneys pay the out of pocket costs of litigating your case, such as expert physician fees, medical records copying charges, filing fees, and other costs.  At the end of the case, we seek repayment of those costs from the Vaccine Court, not from you. Win or lose, you will not be responsible for legal fees or expenses. The sooner you file a claim the better your chances are at recovering compensation for your vaccine injury claim.
