Hundreds of Millions Recovered for Clients

Reviewed By Anne Carrión Toale, Vaccine Injury Attorney


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.

  • We successfully helped hundreds of clients get compensation through the vaccine injury program. See the evidence in our case results.

Other Possible Injuries

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 National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program

Vaccine Injury payouts mctlaw

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 mctlaw

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.

Vaccinations mctlaw


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

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 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.

Mctlaw 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.

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.

My experience with mctlaw for my hip claim was remarkable, I found the communication to be outstanding. I also felt they did an excellent job setting expectations and then delivering on those stated expectations. From net amount, timing of the settlement, how much each related party would receive etc. they were outstanding. I would highly recommend them. They are very professional and set the bar in vaccine injury practice.


Five stars for mctlaw! Paralegal Leslie Williams did an outstanding job communicating with us and keeping us informed. Thanks for all the help.


I am excited to be receiving my final payment so I can put all this behind me. I am really grateful to everyone who played a part in getting me this well deserved settlement as my life has been negatively impacted over the years.


We cannot thank you enough for the services your firm has provided for Marie and I in our time of need. I could not have chosen a finer firm near or far to represent us.

John and Marie (Last Name Withheld for Privacy)

My first response is “Wow!” It has only been 11 months since I first heard of “SIRVA” and an HHS program that awarded compensation to its victims and only 7 months since MC&T accepted my case. I feel that your efforts on my part made all the difference.
