United States Court of Federal Claims
The United States Court of Federal Claims is a court that handles lawsuits against the U.S. government. One of the primary functions of the Court of Federal Claims is to administer the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), which is a no-fault alternative to the traditional legal system for resolving vaccine injury claims.
If you believe that you or someone you know has experienced a vaccine injury, you may be eligible to file a petition for compensation through the VICP. To file a petition, you must do so within the required timeframe (generally within three years of the vaccine injury) and provide evidence of the vaccine injury and any medical expenses that you have incurred as a result of the injury. You may also be required to provide medical records and other documentation to support your claim.
If your petition is successful, you may be eligible to receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and other costs associated with the vaccine injury. The VICP also provides compensation for pain and suffering, as well as other non-economic damages.
It is important to note that the VICP is a complex legal process and it is recommended that you seek the advice of a lawyer if you are considering filing a petition for compensation. You can find more information about the VICP and the petition process on the CDC's website (https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/programs/vicp/index.html).
