The vast majority of people receive some kind of vaccine inoculation every year. In rare instances, adults and children are injured as a result of these injections. Examples of these injuries include the following:

  • Shoulder or arm injury
  • Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelits (ADEM)
  • Guillain – Barre Syndrome (GBS)
  • Idiopathic Thrombcytopenic Purpura (ITP)
  • Chronic Inflamatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIPD)
  • Transverse Myelitis (TM)

Some examples of vaccines known to have caused injuries to patients include:

  • Hepatitus B
  • Meningococal
  • Varicella (chicken pox)
  • Diptheria
  • Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Pertussis (Whooping Cough)
  • DTap Vaccination
  • Influenza (Flu vaccine)
  • Pneumoccal Conjugate
  • Hepatitis A
  • Measles-Mump-Rubella (MMR, MR, M, R)
  • Tetanus

Vaccine claims are processed differently from a typical medical malpractice or product liability claim. All claims are filed in the United States Court of Federal Claims in Washington D.C. under the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. Kirk Claunch and Jim Piel are licensed in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and are ready to help you seek compensation for these injuries.


An important feature of the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program is that attorney’s fees are paid through the Program and not by our clients.  As a result, our clients keep the entire amount of any award from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

Kirk Claunch has been board certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 2002.  Kirk Claunch and Jim Piel have successfully handled a broad range of personal injury matters, including medical malpractice, automobile and trucking accidents, product liability and injuries from exposure to toxic chemicals, otherwise known as toxic torts. We will always strive to ensure that you receive the maximum compensation possible.
