We Take On Cases Throughout The Nation
As parents, we vaccinate our children and loved ones to make sure they are protected from deadly diseases and serious illnesses. Unfortunately, some people have rare and sometimes debilitating reactions to various vaccinations. Due to the growing number of people who have sustained vaccine injuries, Congress created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). This program offers compensation to those with adverse reactions to vaccines. At the Zendeh Del Law Firm, PLLC, we take on vaccine injury cases across the United States, and we are committed to helping clients obtain the financial compensation they deserve. Stop by our office today to discuss the details of your case and find out what steps you need to take to file a vaccine injury claim under NVICP.
