Vaccines are generally weaker version of viruses used to develop bodily defenses against the stronger versions of the disease. While vaccines are ubiquitous and generally rather safe, the do sometimes cause serious injury as a result of vaccination side effects. Vaccinations have helped eradicate a number of dangerous diseases from developed countries such as smallpox and polio, but sometimes vaccinations themselves can also cause serious injuries.
Fortuntely, the US government created the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program in 1988. Vaccine claims are different from most other drug claims because they are addressed in the Vaccine Court, which is part of the Court of Claims. If the plaintiff can prove a causal relationship between the administration of a vaccine and a medical ailment or disorder, then that plaintiff may be eligible for predetermined compensation to cover medical costs, legal expenses, and lost earning capacity, along with up to $250,000 for pain and suffering. Vaccine makers pay into a fund that is then used to pay for pain and suffering and medical costs. Although vaccine cases are almost always decided in vaccine court, they are occasionally decided in a civil court if a higher court so adjudicates. In order to win compensation in vaccine court, it is necessary to demonstrate a causal connection that is more likely than not the case.
