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.

The Court of Federal Claims, also known as the “Vaccine Court” began as part of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) of 1986. This special court works to provide protection from liability to manufacturers and administrators of vaccines while simultaneously providing victims of vaccine injuries with a clear, more even-handed process to seek compensation for their vaccine-injury claims. While the Vaccine court was initially created in response to lawsuits stemming from injuries to children, there are now at least equal to, if not more, adult injury claims filed each month as compared to minors. The adversary in the Court of Federal Claims is always the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), a government entity, rather than the manufacturers or administrators of the vaccine.

The Court of Federal Claims is physically located in Washington, DC, but the majority of vaccine injury matters are taken care of remotely from start to finish. This provides victims of vaccine injuries with great flexibility and access to pursuing their claims. Injured persons can often bring their claims in this Court with the representation of an admitted attorney such as Phyllis Widman, Esq. without having to ever physically appear in court. The accessibility of this Court allows victims from all over Massachusetts, and the rest of the country, to fight for compensation for their injuries from wherever they may be.

"Phyllis Widman, and staff, after years of continuous working on my behalf, keeping in touch with me every step of the way, for years, was happy to inform me that we had won the case.

"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
