The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program
Vaccines, like any medicines, can sometimes cause serious problems and side effects. The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, or VICP, is a federal program that provides compensation for victims injured by certain vaccines.
Proving A Claim Under The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program
In order to receive compensation under the VICP, you must prove that the injured person received a vaccine covered under the VICP and listed on the coverage Vaccine Injury Table. Petitioners also must prove by a preponderance of the evidence (more likely than not) that one of the following occurred:
- The vaccine caused the injury.
- The vaccine significantly aggravated or caused an existing illness to get worse.
In addition, in order to receive compensation, the court must determine that there were no other more likely cause for the injury or death.
Claims Paid Under The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program
Since the first compensation claims were made in 1989, billions of dollars have been paid to victims. Thousands of compensation payments have been made to petitioners, averaging hundreds of thousands of dollars each year. The legal team at Downing, Allison & Jorgenson National Vaccine Injury Lawyers has helped victims recover millions of dollars in damages.
