No one receives a vaccine with the expectation of suffering a severe adverse reaction or injury. However, in a small percentage of vaccine administrations, serious injuries do occur. Often, the recipients that do suffer a reaction are stigmatized by others, including medical professionals, who do not fully understand the medical causal relationship between vaccines and the associated adverse reactions.
Our vaccine injury attorneys are well-versed in the dangerous effects and conditions that can be caused by vaccines and have litigated thousands of vaccine injury cases in the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. In addition, we work closely with the best medical specialists in orthopedics, neurology, and immunology so that we can constantly evolve and better represent our clients. With the support of our medical experts and our experience in vaccine claim litigation, we are the best ally an injured party can have in a vaccine claim. Here’s why:
Many of our clients have already discussed their case with a family friend or local personal injury attorney before they find us. These conversations can be misleading, as vaccine injury compensation is a very specialized type of Federal litigation involving complex legal, medical, and scientific issues. These are not “local” cases and cannot be filed in state courts by a local personal injury attorneys practice.
Our attorneys are specially licensed to practice in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and only handle vaccine claims. Since vaccine injury litigation is a highly specialized area of practice, there are few practicing attorneys in the vaccine injury field. Our vaccine attorneys focus exclusively on this area.
Over the past few years alone, our attorneys have litigated thousands of vaccine injury cases through settlement or trial. We know the defenses raised by the Department of Justice attorneys and prepare each case with the specific goal of combating those defenses. Our efforts have achieved some of the best results in the program in recent years.
We operate with a mind toward client satisfaction. We keep our clients updated through each step of the process and explain potential problems and case strategy as we progress. We take pride in providing an outstanding client experience along with compensating our clients to the fullest extent that the VICP allows.
