Death Resulting from Covid-19 Vaccination in Massachusetts
Despite the fact vaccines are safe and effective they all have potential adverse effects. In rare cases these adverse effects can include death. Losing someone can be traumatic enough, but the law around vaccine injury and death is a labyrinth. If someone you know has died from a Covid 19 vaccination in Massachusetts, you need someone to help you through the legal maze in order to be compensated. Todd Beauregard is the lawyer you need. You can reach him at 978-275-1919.
Adverse Vaccine Reactions and the Law in Massachusetts
By the 1970s vaccine lawsuits became so numerous that pharmaceutical companies began to leave vaccine production. In order to stabilize the situation, in 1986 the Federal government passed a law, and two years later the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services established the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) in response. NVICP is funded by receiving a $.75 tax for each vaccine dose administered. This money is used to pay out victims of adverse reactions to vaccines.
Unfortunately, the NVICP standards of compensation are quite high and the compensation rates quite low. The process involves a five-step process where, if your claim is accepted, a Special Master determines your compensation. Fortunately, if your claim is denied at this stage, or if you are not satisfied with the pay-out recommendation, you are then free to sue the pharmaceutical company and/or the health care provider who administered the vaccine.
With all the steps involved it is clear what you need is a lawyer to guide you through the process and advise you about your options, and which of those options will bring the most likelihood of success.
Getting the Compensation You Deserve
Extreme adverse effects from a vaccination are rare but they do happen. If you know someone who has died due to receiving a vaccine dose, due to government regulations, the road to compensation for your loss is complex. Even if you should win a judgement at NVICP there is no guarantee that compensation will be adequate for your loss. What you need is a lawyer who understands the issues and one who can help you navigate the labyrinth of vaccine compensation law. Don’t let a pharmaceutical company hide behind a low compensation pay out, instead contact Todd Beauregard who has years of experience dealing with victim compensation.
