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 we have to pay for attorney’s fees?
Answer: Reasonable attorney’s fees and costs are paid by the Secretary of Health and Human Services as long as the case is brought in good faith and is timely. You do not have to pay any attorney’s fees or costs for a good faith claim that is filed on time. Since you do not have to pay for the legal expenses it makes no sense to go it alone.
If you have any questions about the vaccine injury program, please contact me for a free, no obligation consultation or comment below.
