The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP)
The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (or VICP) was established in the 1980s. Lawsuits against health care providers and pharmaceutical companies in the 1980s threatened the availability of vaccine supplies and ultimately could have reduced vaccine rates. Reduced vaccination rates would have put the U.S. at risk for a resurgence of diseases that were normally preventable with vaccines. By creating the VCIP, the federal government created a no-fault solution to resolve vaccine injury claims, without the need to pursue litigation in the traditional legal system. Additionally, all legal fees are paid by the VICP. In other words, no one filing a VICP claim needs to pay for an attorney, nor do they have to pay an attorney out of their settlement proceeds.
Vaccines Covered Under VICP
Under the VICP, most routine vaccines that are recommended by the CDC in the United States are eligible for compensation. Symptoms, injuries, and complications can appear immediately after the administration of a vaccine or can develop over time. The vaccine injury attorneys at Downing, Allison & Jorgenson National Vaccine Injury Lawyers can help you further understand which vaccines are covered under the VICP, assess your injuries, and file a claim under the VICP.
