Hib Vaccine Injury Claim Attorneys Based in Chicago, Illinois

A series of Hib vaccines is recommended during a child's first 15 months of life. The vaccine is also sometimes recommended for adults with certain health conditions. Like other children's vaccines, Hib carries the risk of certain side effects, some mild and some severe. If your child is injured by the Hib vaccine, compensation may be available to help you and your child recover, at least financially, from the injury.

Adverse Effects of the Hib Vaccine

Possible Hib vaccine adverse effects include:

  • High fever
  • Severe allergic reaction
  • Redness, swelling and irritation at the injection site
  • SIRVA
  • Anaphylaxis

The Hib vaccine is not generally associated with severe injuries; however, like any kind of medical intervention, the Hib vaccine may cause particular individuals to have bad reactions. These reactions can lead to various physical and neurological injuries.

Reactions to Hib, and other types of vaccines, can have serious physical, cognitive and emotional consequences. If your reaction leads to disability, you may be unable to work. This inability to earn an income may make it impossible to pay for the cost of treating your injury.

For children injured by vaccines, the impact of a Hib vaccine injury can be tragic. A child may be permanently impaired, physically and mentally. In some cases, perfectly healthy children are injured by bad reactions to vaccines. In the most severe cases, reactions to a vaccine can be fatal to a child.

How to Prove Serious Injury

To recover compensation from the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), you must prove either that a specific injury occurred within a set period of time as outlined in the Vaccine Injury Table, or alternatively, that the Hib vaccine actually caused your injury. As attorneys experienced in representing victims of vaccine injury, the lawyers at the Vaccine Injury Law Project can doggedly pursue compensation for you from the VICP. Our vaccine injury law team has many resources available to us, and we will handle all aspects of your case, including:

  • Finding medical experts who know about your injury
  • Filing your VICP paperwork correctly and on time
  • Establishing the link between your vaccination and the resulting injury

Our entire firm is committed to recovering compensation for vaccine injury victims and their families. Although rare, vaccine injuries can be life-altering, and we believe you should be compensated for any out-of-pocket medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering caused by the vaccine injury.
