NATIONAL VACCINE INJURY LAWYERS
Every day thousands of people in the US are safely vaccinated against diseases and illnesses. However, sometimes rare, severe, and debilitating reactions to vaccinations can happen.
As a result, Congress created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP); to help victims of adverse vaccine reactions. Mctlaw helps those people get financial compensation from the NVICP. And we do it at no cost to you.
What Makes mctlaw Different?
- Mctlaw helped more clients get compensation in the past 5 years than any other law firm in the United States.
- Our attorneys obtained the largest single financial award for a client in the vaccine program’s history.
- Our lawyers represent clients in all 50 states and have done so for more than 20 years.
- We successfully helped hundreds of clients get compensation through the vaccine injury program. See the evidence in our case results.

Our law firm pays the costs of litigating your case
We pay the out-of-pocket costs of your case, such as expert fees, medical records charges, filing fees, and other costs. You are never responsible for these costs.
Our vaccine lawyers work one-on-one with you
Our vaccine injury attorneys will meet with you and your family either in person or via Zoom meeting. If your case goes to trial, we will work one-on-one to help you prepare to testify.
If your case goes to trial, it should take place Close to where you live
When Congress created the Vaccine Injury Program, one of the legislative compromises was that the Court travels to injured patients to hear their cases. This also makes it easier for your doctors to attend and testify on your behalf at trial, if necessary.

About the NVICP
Currently, there is more than $3 billion available in a federal trust fund to compensate people with vaccine injuries. Americans with vaccine injuries have already received more than $2 billion in compensation since 1988. Find out more about how the program works and if you qualify.
Vaccine Injury Payouts
The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, or the NVICP, provides no-fault compensation to individuals who have suffered injuries after receiving certain vaccines. Since 1988, the vaccine court has awarded more than 6,000 payouts totaling to more than $4 billion dollars.
Filing a Vaccine Injury Claim
Filing a vaccine claim is a complicated and adversarial process. Vaccine Cases are not typical personal injury cases. A vaccine lawyer needs to be a member Court of Federal Claims Bar and should also be highly experienced in litigating vaccine injury cases in the Vaccine Court.
The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, or the NVICP, provides compensation for reactions to certain vaccines. Some of the vaccines that are covered are the Flu Vaccine, Chicken Pox Vaccine, HPV Vaccine, the Rotavirus Vaccine, and more.
Meet Our Vaccine Injury Attorneys
Having trouble deciding who will represent you in your vaccine case?
We make it easy with our simple guide to choosing the right lawyer for your vaccine case.
Personal injury attorneys typically do NOT handle vaccine injury cases. Vaccine injury compensation is a very specific type of Federal litigation involving complex legal, medical, and scientific issues. Our vaccine injury attorneys proudly represent clients in obtaining compensation for vaccine injuries and have done so over the past 20 years.
Should I hire a local attorney to represent me?
ALL vaccine claims must go to the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (Vaccine Court) in Washington, D.C. These are not “local” cases. An attorney in your area cannot file these cases in your local or state courthouse. These cases must be filed in Washington, D.C. in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims by attorneys who are members of the Court of Federal Claims Bar.
What are your qualifications to represent vaccine injury clients
Our attorneys work exclusively on vaccine injury cases. Because vaccine injury litigation is a very specialized area of practice, there are few attorneys in the United States who do it. Our vaccine attorneys exclusively focus on this area.
How much compensation has mctlaw won for vaccine injury clients?
Mctlaw has won more than $300 million dollars in vaccine injury compensation for thousands of our clients across the country. We have won more compensation for vaccine injuries in recent years than any other law firm in the United States. Read our client’s case results and see actual award amounts.
How close is your office to the Vaccine Court in Washington, DC?
Our Washington, D.C. office is blocks away from The Vaccine Court. This proximity makes it easy for your attorneys to manage your case and represent you efficiently.
