Representing People Across the U.S. With Severe Vaccine Reactions

E very day adults and children around the world are safely vaccinated against diseases and illnesses. However, rare, severe, and debilitating reactions to vaccinations do happen.  This is why Congress created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP); to help victims of adverse vaccine reactions. Maglio Christopher & Toale, P.A. helps those people get financial compensation for their vaccine injuries from the NVICP.  And we do it at NO COST to our clients.

HOW OUR VACCINE INJURY LAWYERS CAN HELP

There is NO COST to you to hire our vaccine injury law firm

Our legal fees NEVER come out of any money awarded to you. We do not take a percentage of what you may get. Instead, our legal fees are paid directly by the United States Court of Federal Claims at the end of the case.

If your case goes to trial, the trial should take place close to where you live

When Congress created the Vaccine Program, one of the legislative compromises was that the Court would travel 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.

Our vaccine lawyers travel to YOU and meet with you in person, no matter where you live

Whenever possible, one of our attorneys will come meet with you and your family at or near your home, anywhere in the United States.  We strongly believe that to effectively represent you, we need to know you and your situation.  If your case goes to trial, we will likely meet with you several more times to help prepare you for testifying.

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 the other costs of litigating your claim.  At the end of the case our Firm seeks repayment of those costs from the Court, not from you

WHY CHOOSE A VACCINE INJURY ATTORNEY INSTEAD OF A "LOCAL" PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER

Personal injury attorneys typically do NOT handle vaccine injury cases.

That's because vaccine injury compensation is a very specialized type of Federal litigation involving complex legal, medical, and scientific issues. Our vaccine injury attorneys have represented hundreds of patients in obtaining compensation for vaccine injuries over the past 15 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 court.

Our vaccine injury attorneys come to you.

Since vaccine injury litigation is a very specialized area of practice, there are few attorneys that do it.  Our attorneys focus on this area.  And, they will visit you at your home, office, or someplace convenient to you.
