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. Over those years, a common question is:
Do I really need an Attorney or can I represent myself in a vaccine injury claim?
Answer: Do not represent yourself in the program. The program was designed to be non-adversarial and non-litigious but in reality that is not the case. It is generally a very complicated, adversarial legal process requiring the best of legal representation. You need an attorney who knows how to litigate vaccine cases. Since you do not have to pay for the legal expenses it makes no sense to go it alone.
