VICP (The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program) was established in 1986 to help compensate vaccine recipients and their families who have been severely injured as a result of adverse effects from certain vaccines. Over the course of the years, I have represented many victims and their families who were seriously injured or died from adverse reactions to vaccines. I can represent people throughouth the country and in many states such as Wisconsin, New York and Illinois. Over those years, a common question is:
Am I responsible for any costs, like expert witnesses, travel, etc.?
Answer: There are costs. The filing fee for the Vaccine Petition is $350. Also, you may need to hire experts. The amount of the costs depend on the expert. Most of the out of pocket costs are recoverable at the end of the case are paid for by the program. Again, as long as the claim is filed in good faith and on time you will not be personally responsible for fees or costs.
