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:
What does it take to file a claim with VICP?
Answer: Generally, a Petition has to be filed which is a declaration from the party adversely affected with a need or by another person with knowledge of such need. Generally, you must file six years of medical records prior to the vaccine and all vaccine related medical records. In addition, expert reports need to be filed.
