While rare, adverse reactions to vaccines can happen. When they do, the injuries can be severe. Guest Drew Downing explains how paralegals play a critical role in marshaling the vast amount of medical evidence in any given vaccine injury case.
He and host Carl Morrison discuss the enormity of the information that needs to be gathered and sorted into a timeline before filing a claim.
They also discuss the history of vaccine litigation in the United States and the creation of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. Downing distinguishes between the federal vaccine injury program and the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program, where individuals must take any claims related to the Covid-19 vaccine.
Drew Downing is a senior attorney with Van Cott & Talamante in Phoenix, Arizona.
