Helping Clients with Vaccine Injuries throughout Wisconsin
A vaccine injury is an injury caused to an individual by a vaccination. Vaccines, including those given to children to prevent diseases such as measles, mumps, rubella, and other childhood illnesses may carry harmful side effects. If you or your child has been injured by a vaccination in the state of Wisconsin, it is important to contact the Wisconsin vaccine injury lawyer at the firm for a consultation about the circumstances surrounding the injury. Attorney Coté can review your situation to determine what legal steps may be taken on your behalf in connection with the injuries you have suffered from a vaccine.
The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) was instituted in 1988 to compensate individuals and their families who were injured by childhood vaccines. The Vaccine Injury Table created by the Secretary of Health and Human Services lists all vaccines covered by the VICP along with their possible adverse reactions. Included on the list are vaccines for tetanus, pertussis, polio, measles/mumps/rubella, hepatitis B, and more. Adverse reactions may be anaphylaxis or anaphylactic shock which is a life-threatening allergic reaction. Other adverse reactions are listed on the Table as well.
To win an award from the VICP in a vaccine injury claim, the claimant must demonstrate a causal relationship between the vaccine and one of the several listed adverse effects listed on the Vaccine Injury Table through documented medical records.
The Wisconsin vaccine injury lawyer at the firm can provide the legal counsel and guidance you need in any situation regarding a vaccine injury. Each case is unique and your particular situation will need to be reviewed in order to determine the specific legal options available to you.
