Vaccine Injury Attorneys in Hingham
Serving Clients with Care & Compassion
Vaccines were designed to protect the population from disease. Collectively, society has made tremendous advances in science and has developed countless life-saving vaccines.
Unfortunately, some people suffer adverse reactions to the very vaccinations intended to protect them. If you or your loved one was left injured after being vaccinated, you have the right to take legal action – and Tennyson Law Firm can help. Our vaccine injury attorneys in Hingham can help you file a claim so that you can receive the compensation you need to recover.
The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program
Founded in 1986, the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) helps the injured victims of vaccines file claims and seek compensation. A vaccine injury claim is a special type of personal injury case because it is reviewed and decided by a specialized judge under the VICP.
The Potential Hazards of Vaccines
Generally speaking, vaccinations are considered safe and effective in preventing serious, contagious diseases. That said, they are not without their risks and side effects.
At Tennyson Law Firm, we handle injury claims regarding vaccines such as:
- Flu shot
- Chickenpox shot
- Hepatitis H and B vaccines
- Measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines
- HPV vaccine, including Gardasil and Cervarix
- Pertussis vaccine
- Pneumococcal conjugate vaccines (PCV)
- Tetanus vaccine
If you or someone you love is suffering an injury or illness after receiving any of these vaccinations, we encourage you to discuss your case with our vaccine injury attorneys in Hingham. We know how to navigate the VICP and fight for justice on your behalf.
Certain vaccines have been alleged to cause:
- Shoulder and arm pain
- Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS)
- Transverse Myelitis (TM)
- Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM)
- Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP)
- Brain damage
How to Pursue a Vaccine Injury Claim
Though the VICP was established as a non-litigious entity, the process of filing a vaccine injury claim presents numerous legal challenges. That is why it is in your best interest to retain an attorney as you navigate the claims process.
From start to finish, we will vigorously and aggressively pursue your claim, uncovering evidence and working closely with medical experts to build your case. There is only one court that handles vaccine injury cases: the Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C. Your case will be assigned to one of eight Special Masters who will decide your case.
When you retain Tennyson Law Firm, we cover the expenses of your claim. This includes filing fees, the costs of copying medical records, expert physician testimony fees, and other related expenses. You will not have to pay a penny out of pocket and we will never pass a fee onto you. Our vaccine injury attorneys in Hingham are reimbursed through the VICP at the conclusion of your claim, which means we will not even take a contingency fee from the compensation you are awarded.
