Vaccine Injury Attorneys in San Francisco

National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program

As with any medical procedure, there are risks involved with being vaccinated. Vaccine injures are very serious and lead to extensive medical intervention and care, at a high cost. The federal government has recognized these risks and, to promote the continued use of vaccines, established the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. This program makes it easier to receive compensation for vaccine-related injuries.

The federal government set up a "no fault' system to fulfill this goal. To be compensated, the injured party need only show they were vaccinated by one of the covered vaccines and that the vaccine caused the injury.

Covered Vaccines

  • Tetanus
  • Pertussis
  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Rubella
  • Polio
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hepatitis A
  • Trivalent influenza
  • Meningococcal
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Haemophilus influenzae type b
  • Varicella
  • Rotavirus
  • Pneumococcal conjugate

The Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services updates this list as new vaccines become available and are recommended for routine administration to children by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. If you do not find your vaccine on the list, still call a San Francisco personal injury lawyer from our firm to determine if your vaccine has been recently added. If your vaccine does not show up on the list there are other more traditional avenues to obtain compensation for vaccine-related injuries we can help you with.

Why You Need Our San Francisco Personal Injury Attorneys

Hiring an attorney to pursue compensation from the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program will cost you nothing because the court pays for all the legal fees. Although the Federal Government has made the system "no fault," similar to workers' compensation, the process can still be a complicated, time consuming and legalistic. An attorney is essential and since there is no cost to you there is no reason to engage in the process alone.

We will do all we can to recover the maximum amount of compensation. Our firm has won over $1 Billion for our clients throughout our 80+ years of combined practice. The stress of handling an injury and a complicated claim is over. We will work with you so your focus can be on recovering. The legal team at Bostwick & Peterson will evaluate your vaccine claim and can advise you on how we will pursue compensation.

You need an experienced law firm to address the legal issues regarding your claim.
