Why can’t I hire an attorney I already know?

The National Vaccine Injury Program (VICP) is a federal government program that covers the cost of medical care and provides additional compensation to individuals who have experienced vaccine- related injuries and illnesses. Claims made under the VICP are brought before the Federal Court of Claims. An attorney must be licensed to practice in The Federal Court of Claims in order to file your claim on your behalf. I would venture to guess that most attorneys throughout the country do not know what The Federal Court of Claims even is much less are the licensed to practice in it. Before you hire an attorney for your vaccine related injury, ask them if they know what The Federal Court of Claims is. If they cannot provide you an answer immediately, you probably don’t want them representing you.

There is no cost to hire an attorney to represent you in your vaccine injury claim. Please feel free to contact us to discuss your case. If we do take your case, we will never bill you and our fees will be paid out of the VICP fund. There is literally no risk to calling us and we are more than happy to speak with you and try to help you out the best we can.
