National Vaccine Injury Lawyers
Most often, adults and children around the world are safely vaccinated everyday against diseases and illnesses. However, sometimes rare, severe, and debilitating reactions to vaccinations happen. As a result, Congress created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP); to help victims of adverse vaccine reactions. MCT Law helps those people get financial compensation from the NVICP. And we do this at NO COST to you.
What Makes Us Different?
- MCT Law helped more clients get compensation in the past 3 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 almost 20 years.
- We successfully helped hundreds of clients get compensation through the vaccine injury program. See the evidence in our case results.
How Our Vaccine Injury Lawyers Help You
Our Law Firm Pays any Additional Costs of Litigating Your Case
We pay the out of pocket costs of litigating your case, such as expert physician fees, medical records copying charges, filing fees, and other costs. Then, at the end of the case, we seek repayment of those costs from the Vaccine Court, not from you.
There is NO COST to Hire Our Vaccine Injury Law Firm
Our legal fees are NOT taken out of any of your monetary award. You keep 100% of your compensation. We do not take a percentage of your compensation. Instead, our legal fees are paid separately and directly by the United States Court of Federal Claims at the end of the case.
Our Vaccine Lawyers Meet With You in Person
Whenever possible, one of our attorneys will travel to meet with you and your family at or near your home, anywhere in the United States. Additionally, if your case goes to trial, we will likely meet with you several more times to help prepare you for testifying.
If Your Case Goes to Trial, The Trial 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 case. This also makes it easier for your doctors to attend and testify on your behalf at trial, if necessary.
Personal Injury Lawyer vs. Vaccine Injury Attorney
Personal injury attorneys typically do NOT handle vaccine injury cases
Vaccine injury compensation is a very specialized 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.
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.
Our attorneys specialize in 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.
MCTLaw won more compensation for vaccine injuries in recent years than ANY other law firm in the United States

Filing a vaccine claim is a complicated and adversarial process. Vaccine Cases are NOT typical personal injury cases. Your vaccine lawyer needs to be a member Court of Federal Claims Bar and should also be highly experienced in litigating vaccine injury cases before the Vaccine Court.
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.
COMMON VACCINE REACTIONS & DISORDERS
This complication is shoulder pain caused by the vaccine injection itself. SIRVA is most common after getting a flu shot because the injection is given near the deltoid muscle.
