Many people understand that they need a lawyer after an arrest or if they are closing a large business deal. But what about after a vaccine injury?
There are a number of benefits to hiring an attorney after a vaccine injury, including:
1. You can get the information you need
The internet is full of information about vaccines, and not all of it is helpful. An attorney can help you navigate this complex topic and explain what you can expect. A lawyer can also answer your questions about your specific case, including providing you with advice tailored to the vaccine you received and your injury. This can help you make informed decisions throughout the process.
2. No risk in speaking with an attorney
Many injury lawyers offer free consultations. That way, you can get to know the attorney and see if he or she is right for your case.
Additionally, you may not need to pay attorneys' fees. The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) provides compensation to those injured by vaccines in the United States. If certain conditions are met in your case, the VICP will also pay attorneys' fees, regardless of whether your case is successful. For cases that qualify, attorneys are prohibited from charging additional attorneys' fees directly to you.
3. You will have an advocate on your side
After a serious injury, you rely on the support of medical professionals, friends and family. Lawyers can also provide you with the support you need by handling the legal side of your case. Your lawyer will work to ensure your rights are protected and that you receive the full and fair compensation you are entitled to. This can allow you to concentrate on your own recovery while your attorney concentrates on your case.
