Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP)

Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP)

While extremely rare, vaccines can cause serious permanent injuries (and even death) in a small percentage of the population. Thanks to the federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), a no-fault program established in the 1980s, financial recourse is available to people of all ages who have suffered a severe vaccine reaction.

Unlike traditional litigation, compensation under the VICP program can be achieved without lengthy hearings or trials. After a lawsuit is filed in the United States Court of Federal Claims against the Department of Health & Human Services, a court-appointed special master decides whether money (and how much) should be awarded.

To date, this program has awarded more than $5 BILLION to approximately 10,000 people! Even so, there are still BILLIONS of dollars of future payouts that are stored in the Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund – money that comes from a 75-cent tax on every administered vaccine.

At Saible Law Group, we do NOT charge our vaccine clients anything for our legal services. Also, unlike nearly all personal injury attorneys, we do NOT charge our clients any contingency on the award or settlement that they may ultimately receive. Instead, we are compensated separately by the VICP, resulting in no additional financial loss to our clients.

Find out NOW if you have a vaccine injury claim. Your Case Evaluation is free, but time is of the essence in filing a claim. With a few exceptions, all petitions have to be filed within three (3) years after the first symptom of a vaccine injury, or within two (2) years of a death.
