HOW MUCH IS MY BALTIMORE PERSONAL INJURY CASE WORTH? I think I got sick from that shot, redux.
Some Baltimore personal injury lawyers handle cases involving illness caused by a drug or vaccine. Those claims against the maker of a listed vaccine are handled pursuant to a special federal system of compensation [National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP)] explored in another chapter. Baltimore personal injury lawyers often bring claims against drug and unlisted vaccine manufacturers in state court. Knowledgeable Baltimore personal injury lawyers are aware that a person lawfully and appropriately administering an FDA approved drug or vaccine is immune from negligence claims, but not from gross negligence claims. The manufacturer is not exempted from negligence claims.
