WASHINGTON, Oct. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Every year, millions of Americans ward off sickness and disease by receiving the flu vaccine. In rare cases, however, some individuals can experience adverse reactions or injury that results from vaccination.
In cases where individuals experience injury or harm that results from a flu vaccine, the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP), offers claimants the ability to obtain monetary compensation for damages, such as pain and suffering, lost wages, out-of-pocket expenses, and the cost of future medical care.
One illness that may result following the flu vaccination is Guillain-Barre Syndrome or GBS.
While the exact causes of Guillain-Barre Syndrome remain unknown, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and most medical experts have noted a link between GBS and the annual flu vaccination. Many individuals have successfully obtained compensation for GBS by filing for damages under the federal government's National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.
"Because of pending changes poised to soon take place within the Vaccine Program," says vaccine attorney Leah Durant, "obtaining compensation for claims of flu-GBS will likely become much easier for individuals who received the flu shot and became sick within 5 to 42 days of vaccination. The client in this case recovered the statutory maximum award for pain and suffering of $250,000.00, plus out of pocket expenses. This is an excellent example of how people who experience Guillain-Bare Syndrome following a flu vaccine can be compensated quickly for their injuries."
