How Do I Know if I Qualify for Compensation?
Can a vaccine make you sick? What are the serious side effects of vaccines? The easiest way to know if you qualify for compensation is to contact an attorney at The Greenwood Law Firm; however, you may qualify for compensation if you or your loved one was vaccinated by a covered vaccine and your symptoms lasted for more than six months after the vaccine was given, or the injuries resulted in a hospital stay and surgery or the injuries resulted in death.
The statute of limitations for filing a claim is three years from the date your symptoms began. It is often difficult to determine when your symptoms began for the purpose of calculating the statute of limitations, which is why The Greenwood Law Firm recommends contacting an attorney immediately if you have suffered an adverse reaction as a result of having a vaccine. All consultations are free.
What Kinds of Damages Can I Recover?
Normally, a petitioner may recover lost wages in the past, wages that will be lost in the future, past medical expenses actually incurred (meaning only out-of-pocket medical expenses), future medical expenses (includes any expense a petitioner may incur in the future related to medical care or accommodations a petitioner needs because of the injury or condition), disfigurement, and pain and suffering (limited to $250,000).
