National Vaccine Injury Lawyers
Everyday adults and children around the world are safely vaccinated against diseases and illnesses. However, sometimes 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. MCT Law helps those people get financial compensation from the NVICP. And we do it at NO COST to our clients.
What Makes Us Different?
- Maglio Christopher & Toale, P.A. has 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.
- For almost 20 years our lawyers have represented vaccine injured clients in all 50 states.
- We have successfully helped hundreds of clients get compensated through the vaccine injury program. The evidence is in our case results.
How Our Vaccine Injury Lawyers Can Help You
There is NO COST to hire our vaccine injury law firm
Our legal fees never come out of any money awarded to you. You keep 100% of your compensation. We do not take a percentage of what you may get. Instead, our legal fees are paid directly and separately 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 meet with you and your family at or near your home, anywhere in the United States. 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 other costs of litigating your claim. At the end of the case, we seek repayment of those costs from the Vaccine Court, not from you.
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 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.

A Personal Injury Lawyer vs. a Vaccine Injury Attorney
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 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 are 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.
Since vaccine injury litigation is a very specialized area of practice, there are few attorneys in the United States who do it. Our vaccine attorneys focus exclusively on this area.
MCTLaw helped more patients get compensation for vaccine injuries in recent years than ANY other law firm in the United States.

This proximity makes it easy for your attorneys to manage your case and represent you efficiently.

There is currently more than $3 billion available in a federal trust fund to compensate people hurt by vaccines. More than $2 billion has already been paid out to Americans with vaccine injuries since 1988. Find out more about how the program works and if you qualify.
