Vaccine Injury

The following list of vaccine injury possibilities is not exhaustive and is for illustration only. There are many other injuries caused by vaccines that are NOT on the vaccine injury table and if you believe you or a loved one has been injured by a vaccine but do not have a diagnosis of one of the listed injuries, you still may be eligible for compensation. Please contact us to evaluate your case.
