Vaccination Injury Lawyers
Here When You Need Us

No vaccine-injury lawyer has more experience with vaccine-injuries in the US than Richard Gage. If you need help from a vaccine-injury attorney who is a nationally recognized specialist, you've come to the right place.

Do You Suspect A Vaccination Injury?

Compensation is available, and we have the knowledge, experience, and skill to help you get it.

The law-practice group at Richard Gage, P.C. represents people who have suffered vaccination injuries — who are seeking financial compensation through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, also commonly called the NVICP or VICP.

  • Has your loved one suffered a vaccine injury?
  • Have you seen a change in your child’s mental or physical development after a vaccination?

If you've encountered either of these, you've arrived at the right place to get help.

The law firm of Richard Gage, P.C. has been representing vaccine-injured clients throughout the country for nearly a quarter-century.

If you believe that your loved-one suffered a vaccine injury, you should contact us immediately because there are strictly enforced deadlines for filing claims and some of the filing deadlines in this federal compensation program are very short.

Awards from this program will pay for past and future medical and rehabilitation expenses for your loved-one. They will also pay for pain and suffering, and lost wages.

Service members and United States government employees, and their families, serving overseas are also eligible to apply.

Seniors who have suffered injuries from flu vaccine and other vaccines are also eligible to apply.

Why Choose Richard Gage and Associates?

The reason is simple. We know what we're doing. Obtaining compensation for vaccine injury is a complex, sometimes difficult process. The vaccine-litigation-group professionals at Richard Gage, P.C. are vaccine-injury specialists.

During the last nearly a quarter-century, we have represented many hundreds of vaccine-injured people throughout the country.

Plus we represent vaccine injured petitioners at all levels of proceeding. This includes:

  • Trial work to establish that a vaccine injury has occurred,
  • Damage trials to establish the amount of compensation that is owed to the victim by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

Our extensive experience also includes all levels of appeals for vaccine injured petitioners...

  • Starting with many appeals to the United States Court of Federal Claims,
  • Then on to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit
  • And even the United States Supreme Court.

What Is the
Vaccine Injury Compensation Program?

The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program is a federal no-fault insurance program that compensates victims when vaccination injuries occur. The program was created by Congress to replace the conventional lawsuit-based "tort" system so victims could get help faster at lower cost.

Petitioners in this program do not sue the doctor who administered the vaccination, nor the drug company that made the vaccine.

Instead, petitions are filed in the United States Court of Federal Claims in Washington, DC — where the department of Health and Human Services, which administers this program, is asked to compensate the vaccine-injured person.

The money to pay these claims comes from a trust fund with money coming from a surcharge paid by parents or individuals when they purchase vaccinations.

The amount of compensation paid varies in each case, depending on the person's past and expected future medical and rehabilitation needs, their past and future pain and suffering, plus lost wages — both past (where applicable) and future.

These cases are vigorously defended by government legal teams from the United States Department of Justice.

Proving a vaccine injury in this program is a very complex matter, and this program is highly adversarial. That means if you or your loved one has suffered a vaccine injury, you need skilled legal representation by an experienced vaccine-program specialist.

What Vaccines Are Covered?

The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (also called the NVICP or VICP) covers injuries resulting from administration of any of the following vaccines, whether administered to children or adults:

  • Tetanus Toxoid, alone, or in combination with other vaccines (example: TT, Td)
  • Diphtheria-Tetanus-Pertussis or any combination of Diphtheria, Tetanus Toxoid, and Pertussis (whooping cough) antigen-containing vaccines (example: DTP, DTaP, P, DTP-Hib)
  • Measles-Mumps-Rubella or any combination of Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (German measles) virus-containing vaccines (example: MMR, MR, R)
  • Measles virus-containing vaccines, alone, or in combination with other vaccines (example: MMR, MR, M)
  • Rubella virus-containing vaccines, alone, or in combination with other vaccines (example: MMR, MR, R)
  • Polio inactivated virus-containing vaccines (IPV)
  • Polio live-virus-containing vaccines (OPV)
  • Hepatitis A vaccines (Hep A)
  • Hepatitis B vaccines (Hep B)
  • Hemophilus influenzae type b (otitis media) polysaccharide-conjugate vaccines (Hib)
  • Varicella (chicken pox) vaccines
  • Rotavirus vaccines containing live, oral, rhesus-based rotavirus
  • Pneumococcal (pneumonia) conjugate vaccines
  • Trivalent (adult flu) Influenza vaccines
  • Human Papillo virus HPV (Gardisil) vaccines

Do I Have To Pay Legal Fees?

All legal fees for your representation in the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program are paid by the Vaccine Program. You will not be billed for our services. This is true whether you are compensated or not.

Also, no contingency fee will be charged.

All money awarded to your loved-one by this program is for their benefit.

In cases where a vaccination resulted in death, all money awarded is paid to the estate of the decedent.

Give Us A Call, Or Email Us

If you think you or a loved one is the victim of a vaccine injury, give us a call right away at (307) 433−8864, or email us at VaccineLaw@RichardGage.net.

Don't Miss An Important Deadline

Do not delay.

The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has very strict filing deadlines that must be met. If you miss a deadline, you also lose your right to seek compensation for your injury.
