Alaska Vaccine Attorney

Widman Law Firm is able to file claims for vaccine related injuries transpiring in the State of Alaska. The Court of Federal Claims is a special court that hears vaccine injury claims from across the entire country. The admission required to bring vaccine injury claims in front of the Court of Federal Claims, or the “vaccine court” as it is commonly referred to, is a federal admission. Phyllis Widman, Esq. and her staff are thereby admitted and fully prepared to bring vaccine injury claims originating in all 50 states and D.C., including Alaska.

The Vaccine Court also operates slightly differently from a typical civil court in a few ways. First, the adversary in these matters is always the Department Of Health and Human Services (HHS) rather than the administrator or manufacturer of the vaccine. Second, the initial filing is referred to as a “petition” rather than a complaint and has different standards and requirements for its content and formatting than a civil court complaint. Third, there are only Bench Trials (no jury trials) that are conducted by “Special Masters” rather than judges. Attorneys fees are covered in the Vaccine Court, therefore you never pay attorneys fees. The Court is highly specialized and having a specialized vaccine injury attorney is helpful.

The different types of injuries caused by vaccine administration and their levels of severity are wide-ranging. One of the most common injuries, SIRVA, has little to do with the type of vaccine and everything to do with its administration. SIRVA is an umbrella term that encompasses numerous reactions that can happen when a vaccine is improperly administered into the wrong location of the shoulder, usually too high. Such misapplication can result in either pain/injury in the shoulder joint or the fluid-filled bursa beneath the muscle. This can occur with any type of vaccination.

Another very common claim is for Guillain-Barre Syndrome, also known as GBS. GBS is characterized by neurological issues including weakness and immobility, leading to paralysis in some severe cases. GBS is most commonly associated with the influenza vaccine. Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP) is often referred to as GBS’s chronic counterpart because of its characteristic ongoing and often worsening symptoms. Vaccines have been implicated in both the development of CIDP in patients with no history of the disease and relapses in patients with a prior history of CIDP.

"I hired Phyllis Widman to assist me with the denial of my religious exemption for the COVID vaccine and employment termination by my employer. Phyllis was extremely knowledgeable and clearly explained to me about my legal rights and the legal process. I found her to be very efficient, organized, and passionate about her work and I especially liked that she really cared about me as a person and truly wanted what was best for me. I am very grateful to say, I did have a successful outcome. The religious exemption denial was overturned and I am back to work. I highly recommend Phyllis Widman." Kimberly R.
"Phyllis and her team took care of everything after my injury. When I was hurt, I was unsure who to speak to, as I'm quite young and typically "let things go." After a few recommendations and the first phone call I knew I was in good hands. I don't know where I'd be right now if I didn't make that simple first phone call. A thank you just isn't enough, but thank you so so much for what your firm does." Anonymous
