Alaska childhood vaccines injury attorneys

Vaccination Lawsuit Attorneys Serving Injured Adults and Children throughout the entire U.S.

The diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis combined vaccine, DTaP, as well as any of the tetanus toxoid containing vaccines (DT, Td, DTP and TT) have been known to cause serious adverse reactions. Although such reactions are rare, the impacted children and adults can be severely injured. Compensation for such injuries may be available through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. Vaccine injury lawyers,Ed Kraus, Amy Kraus and Brynna Gang can file a compensation claim for you.

In one representative case, Attorney Ed Kraus represented a family with an infant who suffered from a seizure disorder after receiving the DTaP vaccine. The family was awarded a lump sum payment of $1.4 million for life care expenses, lost future earnings, and pain and suffering, as well as an annuity contract to provide payments for future care.

Getting Help for Injury Expenses

The potential for severe injuries from vaccines containing tetanus toxoid may be small, but these injuries can be catastrophic when they do occur. Physical rehabilitation may be necessary, and these injuries almost always carry hefty medical expenses. In some cases, there may be irreversible cognitive changes caused by brain damage.

If you, or your child, has been injured by a vaccine containing the tetanus toxoid, you may be facing substantial out-of-pocket medical costs, all while contending with the medical needs of your child, and dealing with the pain and anguish caused by such an injury. Through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, you may be entitled to compensation.
