At the Law Offices of Leah V. Durant, PLLC, our Firm specializes in the representation of clients in claims filed before the United States Court of Federal Claims. Pursuant to a federal program called the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (or “VICP”), individuals who have suffered injury resulting from the receipt of a vaccination may seek compensation from the government. Individuals filing claims for compensation are not required to prove causation, but are only required to show the existence of a reliable medical theory, logical sequence of cause and effect, and a showing that the injury and timeframe occurred within a temporally appropriate timeframe. In certain cases, petitioner must only show that they received the vaccine and exhibited the onset of symptoms within a specified time period.
While some vaccine injury cases go to trial, many vaccine claims are resolved through a less adversarial and more informal process whereby the parties jointly stipulate to a mutually agreed upon settlement amount. Compensation for vaccine related shoulder pain and injuries vary widely. The exact level of compensation obtained may depend upon certain factors such as the severity of pain and suffering, amount of recovery time, whether surgery was required, and whether the harmed individual has taken time off from work due to his or her condition. Once the Special Master adjudicating the claim has approved of the agreed upon settlement amount, petitioners in vaccine claims may receive an award of compensation, paid for through a trust fund administered by the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services.
