New Jersey Vaccine Injury Lawyer

Phyllis Widman, Esq. is admitted to file claims for vaccine related injuries occurring in the State of New Jersey. New Jersey is also her home state and where her office is located. The admission to practice in the Court of Federal Claims, the special Court in which vaccine injury claims are heard, requires a federal admission that allows such admitted attorneys like Phyllis Widman, Esq. to bring vaccine injury claims in all 50 states and D.C., including New Jersey.

The vaccine court is designed to be a no-fault program, whereby if your injury meets the Vaccine Injury Table requirements, you have a valid claim. Such “table injuries” include encephalopathy or encephalitis, anaphylaxis, shoulder injuries, and vasovagal syncope. Even if your injury does not fall into the no-fault scheme, you may still have an “off-table” claim.

$150,000 judgment secured by Widman Law Firm for a New Jersey man who experienced Guillain-Barre Syndrome and Bell’s Palsy from an influenza vaccine.

Guillain-Barre Syndrome, commonly referred to as GBS, can have wide ranges of severity and symptoms. Symptoms include varying degrees of weakness and immobility, leading to paralysis in some cases. GBS occurs as an immune response after a virus or bacteria invades the body, and many vaccines work by administering an acellular or otherwise weakened version of a virus into the body. It thus follows that GBS is a possibility with any similar immunization, most commonly the influenza vaccine.

"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
